Microsoft Is Making Major Improvements To 'Subscription Management' On Xbox

Microsoft's latest Xbox Insider update notes have dropped information on a welcome change coming to subscription management on Xbox.

Currently available to Alpha Ring Xbox Insiders, users can now fully access and change their subscriptions directly from Xbox consoles. Once the feature moves to the full Xbox dashboard, everyone will be able to alter their subscription plans from within the Xbox console's settings with seemingly no limitations.

This includes changing your Xbox Game Pass plan, for example, along with the ability to turn on (and switch off) recurring billing. For a while now, users have been forced to make certain changes via logging into their Microsoft accounts on a web browser, but hopefully that'll be a thing of the past following this update.

"Subscription Management

Beginning today, you can now change your plan or update the recurring billing status directly from your console. To get started, head to Settings > Account > Subscriptions."

This is a very welcome change to how the Xbox account system works - it's always frustrating when the Subscriptions menu tells you to log into Microsoft Edge just to perform a simple task! The feature is now live for Alpha Ring Xbox Insiders, with a full Xbox release coming soon.

Are you happy to see this change? Let us know if you'll be making use of it.
