Next Xbox Update Adding New Achievement Features and Mini Game Hubs

The people at Microsoft are ringing in the new year by bringing a slew of new features to the Xbox One.

The notifications come down your screen so fast and hard you believe in a moment of befuddlement that you've turned on some kind of hardcore Tetris. The latest Xbox One system update will affect how you interact with your games, your friends, and more.

On top of the "Next Achievements" feature, Insiders will be able to test additional features as they work their way through the Xbox One Update preview rings. This also allows you to easily see which Achievements are almost achieved alongside links to quick load those games. You will also be able to use a filter to prioritize which Achievements you'll grab next by closest, most common, rarest, most common rare, and highest Gamerscore.

Also in the Guide will be new Mini Game Hubs, giving you access to content for games you've recently played without having to visit a whole new page. Mini Game Hubs provide an easy way to see friends who are now playing, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group posts, and more.

"Sometimes all you want to do is avoid all distractions and focus entirely on your game", the official post states. By selecting Do not disturb, your Xbox will suppress all notifications from appearing, but also inform your friends that you aren't available.
