Today Microsoft announced new features that will be distributed to Xbox insiders as part of the May Update for Xbox One.

First of all, we get support for 120Hz monitors on both 1080p and 1440p resolutions. Users will also be able to group up their games and app in new “group” pins, supporting custom names, with the ability to add them to the home screen.

Incidentally, groups won’t be rolled over to the whole alpha ring initially, but they will be gradually be distributed to batches of users within the ring over time.

Another interesting quality of life feature is the ability to trim clips directly in the guide, to help you share just the perfect moment on social media.

Improvement family settings will include a new “details” page that will let parents find and manage all easily find and manage all family options on the console.

The Xbox accessories app has been made easier to navigate, and some button commands have been changed to make the dashboard more intuitive and user-friendly.

Below you can check out some images of the new features. In other Xbox News, you can check out the original Xbox games that have become accessible on Xbox One via backward compatibility, and some massive enhancements for a bunch of Xbox 360 games on Xbox One X.

If you still don’t have an Xbox One X but want in on all the enhancements, you can purchase one on Amazon. If you prefer something less over-the-top, you can grab an Xbox One S.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
