Xbox One July Update To Bring Improvements To Achievements

Snap mode for achievements – a feature that was teases in the pre-E3 event – will allow users to check any achievements they have unlocked within a game without ever having to leave the game. This new feature will also allow users to check their game score and any progress made on achievements too.

The achievements will be sorted by progress made and how close you are to unlocking them. You can also pin achievements to have them at the top of the list to help prioritise your gameplay and also search online for help on how to unlock it – if you’re struggling.

The update will also allow you to double tap the Xbox button to bring up the ‘Snap Centre’. If you already have something snapped, the double tap will allow you to quickly switch between the app and game.

The July update for Xbox one has some region-specific releases too. New Zealand, Ireland and Austria based gamers will now be able to select voice control using the English or German voice models from other countries.

This update also sees Xbox One graced with new social features including the ability to ‘like’ Game DVR clips as well as other activitues in SmartGlass.

Microsoft said it is also bringing support for “future digital bundles and compilation disks”. A date hasn’t been announced for the update just yet, but we expect it to be some time during July 2014.
