Cheat sheet: Xbox One fall update

Xbox has released the fall update, and it’s all about the gamer. Based on fan feedback, this console update includes major speed improvements and more personalization than ever. In this article, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite new features. Check it out!

Community Tab

With this update, you’ll notice a new layout on the Community tab. The mosaic view allows users to see more community content. The clickable tiles open full-screen views that make liking, commenting, and sharing a breeze. Profiles have also been redesigned to enable faster access to recent activity.

Xbox Assist

The new Xbox Assist app provides personalized tips and help, smart notifications, community tips, and troubleshooting tools– all in a convenient built-in app! Get tips from the community for the games you play, including help with achievements.

View the status of Xbox Live services and apps, tackle issues early with predictive notifications, search or browse help topics, and launch troubleshooters for common issues directly from within the app.

To resolve issues quickly and get back to having fun, look for the new app in My Games & Apps or under Settings in the Guide on your console.


Blocks really personalize the Xbox experience. They make it easier for you to discover fun new things on Xbox and to stay updated on your favorite people and games.

Adding blocks to your Home for friends lets you see what games they’re playing, what they’re posting to their feed, and their leaderboard stats. Adding blocks for games helps you stay on top of updates. You can also add blocks for Game Pass, Games with Gold, and News & Events.

Once you’ve added blocks, you are in control and can reorder them or remove as your interests change.


For gamers who like to broadcast their own gameplay, 1080p broadcasting is now available across the entire Xbox One family. Furthermore, USB webcam support allows you to plug in any webcam for broadcasting.

As leaders of the Xbox community, Ambassadors are the authority on new features and updates. For a full breakdown of the fall update’s best new features, check out This Week on Xbox and the Forums FAQ. After you’ve done your research, take the Academy Quiz to test your knowledge.
