Custom Gamerpics, Console Co-streaming, Arena Updates and More Roll Out to Xbox Fans Today
Fan feedback is an important part of how we’ve built Xbox over the years, and this month’s update, which we expect to roll out later today, is all about addressing feedback from the community:
Upload custom Gamerpics to your Xbox profile; choose how you want to express yourself.
Mixer Co-streaming is now on console, for everyone: With just a few clicks, you and up to three of your friends can stream together in a single broadcast. Plus, never miss your friends’ streams inside your Club and Arena Tournaments.
Sign-in to your Xbox One with just one press of the Xbox button on your controller. Now you can make your controller truly your own.
New user-generated tournaments for Killer Instinct on Xbox One means it’s never been easier to go to battle with your friends.
Xbox App on iOS and Android updates bring support for LFG Sharing, Game Pass Browsing, an updated Language/Location Setting and an Android-only feature supporting Messaging Chat Bubbles. Read more on these feature releases below:
Express yourself with custom Gamerpics, Club profile pics, and Club backgrounds
Starting this month, you’ll be able to upload an image from your console, Windows 10 PC, or mobile phone for your Gamerpic, or to customize your club’s profile pic or background. It’ll be available for everyone to see, so keep it clean – stick to the Xbox Live Code of Conduct.
Co-streaming comes to your Xbox One console, Mixer tab in Clubs
Co-streaming arrives on Xbox One! With co-streaming, you and up to three of your friends can broadcast together to create a shared, multi-view experience on Mixer. With co-streaming now on the console, you can invite others to co-stream and join a co-stream – entirely from your Xbox One. To invite another user to a co-stream, simply select ‘Invite to co-stream’ from their profile, or choose to invite your entire party to a co-stream. To accept, simply hold the Xbox button when you see the invite notification. At this point, if you’re not already broadcasting, simply pull up the broadcasting tab in the Guide while playing a game and select ‘Co-stream your game’ to start.
Speaking of streaming, it’s now easier to discover live broadcasts from Club members. From your Club home page, you will now see a ‘Mixer’ tab. Navigate there to get a list of any Club members actively broadcasting on Mixer.
Sign in seamlessly with your controller
Are there multiple people using your Xbox with multiple controllers? You can now link a specific controller to an Xbox profile for easy, automatic sign-in. Once linked, we’ll sign-in to your Xbox with that profile when that controller turns on, and you’ll be ready to play. Along with Xbox Design Lab and button mapping, this is another great way to personalize your controller. To enable this new sign-in feature, you must be using the specific controller you’d like to link and be signed in to the profile you would like to link. From there, go to Settings, choose “Sign-in, security & passkey” and select “This controller signs in.” Choose “Link controller” and your controller and profile are now linked.
