This all seems like good news.
I'm not sure I'll use the service but it's nice to know it's part of Game Pass Ultimate anyway.

My Xbox One (White version released alongside Sunset Overdrive) is dead. :(

I checked to see if it was ok after the trip switch went (caused by my cat pissing in one of the sockets on an extension lead) and although it turns on, it goes to a troubleshooting screen. Selecting 'Continue' goes to a black screen as does both 'Reset Xbox' options.

RIP Xbox One. :(

What buttons do I press to share my gameplay to YouTube?

Also Twitch, Mixer as I assume it’s the same.

Well, like if you mean gameplay clip that goes up onto the xbox App, you can also go into broadcasts and put clip up on twitter.

As far as Streaming though, Mixer is integrated into the UI, which is easily set up, again under broadcasts, it'll go up on a mixer channel with same gamertag as you have, (essentially everyone who has gold also has a mixer channel by default).

You can open up the Twitch app and stream to there if you want. Finally to put a clip up onto Youtube, it is possible but you need to go into the YT app and be signed in to your YT account and upload it in there which is a bit fiddly.

The only way to currently put a Mixer streaming session up on YT is download it on PC and upload it afaik.

Thanks for the reply. I meant to say how to livestream. I took a look and set all the options. So you can livestream via the UI to Mixer, with Twitch via the app (slightly fiddly) and is there no YouTube streaming at all?

November 2019 Xbox One Update Brings Xbox Action for the Google Assistant, Gamertag Updates, Text Filters and More

November is here and that means friends, family, food and plenty of gaming in between. Thanks to your feedback, we’ve got a number of exciting new updates and features to share with you. The November 2019 Xbox Update begins rolling out today and delivers the Xbox Action for Google Assistant, new improvements for gamertags on console and mobile devices, text filters and even more to help you get the most out of your next gaming session.

Xbox Action for the Google Assistant

We’re excited to announce the Xbox Action for the Google Assistant is now publicly available to Xbox One customers in all countries where the Google Assistant is supported. English language is available today, with additional language support coming soon.

With the launch of the Xbox Action for the Google Assistant, you can now interact with your Xbox One in even more ways using just your voice, including the ability to turn your console on and off, launch games and apps, play and pause videos, and more, from any Google Assistant and Home-enabled smart speaker or devices, as well as the Google Assistant apps on iOS and Android.

For more information on the Xbox Action for the Google Assistant, including setup instructions and example commands, please visit the Google Assistant support page on Xbox.com.

The Xbox Action for the Google Assistant joins the Xbox Skill for Alexa as another great option for controlling your console with just your voice, giving you more choice than ever before in how you interact with Xbox. A huge thank you to everyone that participated in the beta and helped provide feedback.


Gamertag Improvements on Console

At E3 this past summer, we introduced our plan to revamp gamertags across PC, mobile devices and Xbox One consoles in order to give players around the world more choice in how they represent themselves including 13 additional worldwide alphabets and a new display option. With the November 2019 Xbox Update, these gamertag options are now supported on console, including profiles, friend lists, messages, Clubs, LFG and more. Everyone will be able to see updated gamertags and users creating new Xbox accounts or changing their existing one will have the option to use the new supported characters or add a numbered suffix to a gamertag that has already been claimed. To learn more about these changes click here.

Current Xbox players can keep their existing gamertags without any further action required on their part and no change in experience from the way that it looks today. There will be no difference in how your gamertag is presented unless you wish to create a new account or change your existing gamertag.

With all these new gamertags, we wanted to make searching for your friends or new teammates easier than ever. In addition to the updated features for gamertags, we are launching the all-new “People Search” feature which allows you to find others using partial or non-exact search terms.


Xbox text filters

Image

Last month, we detailed our vision for Xbox Live content filtration as part of our commitment to responsible gaming on Xbox. In the November 2019 Xbox Update, you can set your own specific level of automated filtration so you can decide what’s acceptable and what isn’t in the text-based messages you receive across Xbox Live. Filter levels can be customized based on four tiers of filtration – Friendly, Medium, Mature and Unfiltered. And as always, if you receive a message that violates our Community Standards for Xbox, even with filters in place, you can still report this conduct to Xbox Enforcement for follow up.

On your console, you can configure your message safety by going to Settings > General > Online safety & family > Privacy & online safety > Message safety. Whenever you receive a message that’s beyond your safety setting, it’ll be replaced with a [Potentially offensive message hidden] placeholder. You can click on that placeholder to learn more about the settings, and there’s a handy shortcut to go change those settings. Adult accounts will have the ability to choose whether to see what content has been filtered based on the filter they choose. To learn more about how to setup this feature, check out our video walkthrough.


More Mixer viewing improvements

Building upon the improvements introduced in the October 2019 Xbox Update, this month we’re making a couple more great enhancements for Mixer viewers. Thanks to your feedback, you now have the option to move the Mixer chat on the left or right side of your screen or hide it altogether.

Additionally, we’re updating the Subscribe button with a reminder to renew when one of your channel subscriptions is within a week of expiration, making it easier to stay subscribed to your favorite Mixer Partners.


Voice-to-Text Dictation

Dictation expands further in the November 2019 Xbox Update with support for more languages! With either a headset or Kinect, you can press the View button whenever the keyboard is on screen to start converting speech to text. To change your preferences from your regional default, head to Settings > System > Language & location to select your keyboard & dictation language.

Supported languages and regions include English (US & Canada), English (India), English (UK), Spanish (Mexico), Spanish (Spain), French (Canada), French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese, with more to come in future updates.


Simplified Settings

This month, we’re introducing a new look for the console Settings menu aimed to provide simplicity and greater ease of use. The menu has been condensed and reorganized, with commonly used settings elevated to the top to improve navigation and discoverability for everyone.


Console setup improvements

Beginning this fall, customers unboxing their new Xbox One consoles will be able to get to the action quicker thanks to improvements we are making to the console setup process. Gamers who buy a brand new Xbox One will have the option to customize their Xbox One’s language, time zone, power settings, and more through the Xbox app for iOS or Android while the Xbox console is installing the latest system update.

As always, these updates are possible because of the Xbox Insiders who have helped shape these features, so huge thanks to all participants for their valuable input. If you’d like to help create the future of Xbox and provide feedback on early features, download the Xbox Insider Hub app on your Xbox One or Windows 10 PC today. You can also visit the Xbox Insider Blog here for the latest release notes, or join the Xbox Insiders subreddit to submit feedback and join the discussion.

We’re always working to improve your gaming experience on Xbox One and will have more announcements in the coming months. In the meantime, stay tuned for more information and happy gaming!

I’ve noticed a very ugly trend, which is a side-effect of Game Pass: people can review games they’ve downloaded but not paid for. I’ve seen several games being given one-star reviews because it’s “not the sort of game I want to play”. The worst, most entitled example I’ve seen said, “We all collectively paid for this.” Oh do strawberry float off. If it continues, I can see niche games disappearing from the service because it’s not worth the damaging, long-term hit to the review average.

Got one for £5. Think I'll put that towards an ESO expansion as it's in the sale and I need some escapism.

Just another GRcadian who saw too many Christmas movies as a child. Another orphan of a bankrupt culture who thinks he's John McClane.

Jumped on the chance to get GTA IV on sale, since I wanted to explore the differences between IV and V for myself. No idea if I'll go for anything else - especially considering my November spend already - but there might be one other thing I go for if I find something worth it.

The biggest difference is the frequency in which you cousin asks you if you'd like to get bowling

Kind of unfortunate there wasn't a playable bowling alley in V. I'd have loved to hear Trevor's reaction to getting a gutterball.

I know some see this sort of thing as inconsequential, but I really liked all the activities you could do in V (aside from yoga), and would love to see even more. But only if it doesn't affect the quality of everything else.

Well pleased about Jurassic World, I've wanted to play that for ages. In fact I was on the verge of buying it this Christmas. As I've got 4 months of Ultimate to play with, I won't have to! :msgreen:

Exactly the same.

Pleased about Mirror of Fate too. I’ve got it on 3DS, and couldn’t justify buying it again, but I’ll be happy to revisit it.

Damn I bought Toy Story 3 a few years ago and never played it. I guess it’s too late to get a refund? :shifty:
