Xbox Sept update

Xbox has detailed its September console update for all users, and it's safe to say it's a biggie! There are a lot of notable new features packed in here, including new install options, the ability to change your Xbox controller LED colour, and much more.

Let's start with the installs shall we? We brought news of this feature late last month when it began to appear for certain Xbox Insiders, and now it's here for all users. Basically, we'll be able to independently select which game type we want to install where, meaning next-gen games can always go to your internal drive, while backwards compatible titles are installed to an external drive etc. This is great for saving time on de-cluttering that much-needed SSD space.

Another big feature is one pertaining to Xbox controllers, although at the moment it's exclusive to the Elite Series 2 pad. Though the 'Xbox Accessories' app, you'll be able to alter the colour of the home button's LED, and there are quite a few options beyond the basic white configuration!

Furthermore, Xbox has streamlined the 'full library' feature, bringing subscription games into your owned game library so that everything is easier to find. Xbox Game Pass, EA Access, and claimed Games with Gold titles will now all appear within your full games library.

The final main change for consoles is the arrival of Party Chat Noise Suppression across Xbox One systems, along with Windows PC. This feature rolled out to Xbox Series X and S users earlier this month, with it now arriving across the wider Xbox ecosystem.

This latest update also includes a few features exclusively for Windows PC and Xbox App users, namely Xbox Game Bar sharing on PC, and new party options within the Xbox app. All the nitty-gritty details are available on the official blog post.
