The Xbox November 2020 update has now begun rolling out to all users (even though it's basically December!), and there are loads of additions this month for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
Here's a brief overview of what's on the way, with more details available at Xbox Wire:
- New Dynamic Backgrounds (Xbox Series X|S)
"Dynamic backgrounds are a new feature for Xbox Series X|S, giving gamers the ability to customize their home screen with motion and color. This update adds six new options, including homages to previous generations of Xbox consoles and others based on popular profile themes."
- Auto HDR Tags (Xbox Series X|S)
"When you open the guide during a game with Auto HDR running, you’ll see a new tag to let you know the game is benefiting from this feature."
- "Optimized for Series X|S" badges (Xbox Series X|S)
"To make it easier to see which of your games have been optimized, we’ve added an 'X|S' badge to their tiles in My Games and Apps, in both the Games and Full Library views."
- New Game Activity Tab In The Guide
"Hunt those achievements, easily join your friends or others playing the game, or discover in-game events, right from the comfort of the guide!"
- Add Family Member Accounts During Setup
"In September we launched the Xbox Family Settings app on Android and iOS... Those gamers with existing Xbox families will now be able to add family members to their console, right from setup."
- Pre-Install Xbox Game Pass Games
"You can now view, add to 'Play later,' and even pre-install certain games before they come to Xbox Game Pass. Just head over to the Xbox Game Pass app on your console or mobile device and look for the 'Coming soon' section."
