The May Xbox Update brings a story feature to the Xbox app, as well as Quality of Service tagging to Xbox consoles.
Team Xbox is constantly working to improve the Xbox experience across tiers and devices.
Based on user feedback, the activity feed will be added to the Xbox app on iOS and Android this month in the form of a story feature. Stories can be created, shared and viewed with friends at any time.
The new feature, which has already launched in Australia and will soon be available in other countries, allows users to stay connected and share their favorite game moments, including game clips, screenshots and achievements, with friends and the Xbox community.
The channel is right on the home screen of the Xbox app. To create a story, users click the + button on their gamertag in the Stories channel, then select the game clip, screenshot, or achievement they want to post from the gallery.
This will take you to a story preview page where you can add a caption to the post. To publish the work, click on the post button at the bottom right.
All shared content remains visible for 72 hours and is published in the activity feed of the profile used.
Another new feature is priority tags for gaming experiences via Quality of Service (QoS) tagging. This allows priority tags to be set on latency-sensitive outbound network traffic on Xbox consoles, such as party chat, console streaming, and multiplayer, to help protect the gaming experience in the event of connectivity issues.
The new buttons for the QoS tagging settings can be found via “Settings” under “General”, “Network settings”, “Advanced settings”. These include the two options DSCP tagging enabled and WMM tagging enabled. Detailed information on both modes can be found here.
