Update (Fri 29th Apr, 2022): Right, here we go! Today's Alpha and Alpha Skip-Ahead builds include three new additions, two of which are firmware updates for controllers and the Xbox One Wireless Headset respectively.

Full details are below, and expect the public rollout for these features in the coming weeks:
Users can now choose to reveal details about secret achievements if they want to know more. Also, coming soon to the Xbox app for Android and iOS, the Xbox app for Windows PC, and Xbox Game Bar!

Original story (Thu 28th Apr, 2022): If you're part of the Xbox Insider program, you might want to keep an eye out over the next couple of days as Microsoft has apparently got some "cool stuff" in the works, as revealed by Xbox Insider Program Lead, Brad Rossetti.
Rossetti teased the "new features" as part of his latest update to Insider members yesterday:
We've only got a couple of days left in the week, so it seems these new features will be revealed very soon. Don't get your hopes up too much - it's not going to be a new dashboard or anything - but new features are always a bonus!
We'll update this article and as when we get more details from Brad and the rest of the Xbox Insider team.
