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.
