One of the annoying problems gamers face is the inability to hear the person your Skyping with while playing a game. This new update enables Xbox One users to individually control volume levels for apps snapped onto the Xbox One’s main display, so that conversations won’t be drowned out by the sounds of an all out assault.
Another feature added is a new feedback tool designed to send information directly to Microsoft from the Xbox One automatically. While this is voluntary, the goal is to collect audio samples which will help improve the console’s voice recognition capabilities.
