New "Friends in games" flyout informs you of friends playing the same game. Looking specifically at the high-end models, 21.6 percent of those polled want an Xbox One X, while 22.2 percent want a PS4 Pro. It appears as fans understood that the update will be one for console owners, but sadly it is a different game, nearly identical to the previous Pocket Edition designed for mobiles.

This is one of many times the Dashboard has been reworked in an effort to make it faster and rework some of the voice and gesture controls which relied on the Kinect. Players can also choose to download 4K content for some games to the Xbox One or Xbox One S, so that it will be ready for the arrival of the Xbox One X.

You can also use a USB webcam to broadcast yourself alongside your gameplay on Mixer, or to have a 1:1 or group video chat with friends using Skype.
