The October 2021 system update for Xbox controllers is rolling out to all users today.
The key feature of the latest update that Xbox Insider Program members have been testing since August – the ability to display the dashboard in 4K resolution on the X-series consoles.
Prior to the update, the Xbox Xbox X console rendered the dashboard and other UI elements at 1080p and downconverted to 4K.
“We know gamers who pay attention to detail and appreciate 4K want a clear experience even when browsing the dashboard,” Xbox says in a new blog post.
“We’re excited to share that starting today, gamers who have an Xbox Series X connected to a 4K display will see the dashboard rendered in 4K natively.”
As a result of the home screen update, the My Games & Apps screen, guides, illustrations and in-game buttons will become clearer and text readability will improve.
Another new feature added in the latest update is Xbox Night Mode, a set of settings that adjust light sources to keep the room dark at night or to help light-sensitive gamers.
Users can dim the screen or reduce the white light from the console and console when distracted (for example, watching movies in the dark).
They can also create night mode schedules to determine when night mode is turned on and off.
Finally, a new Quick Settings option has been added to Xbox Guide, which allows players to quickly toggle certain features on or off, making it easier to change settings for families that have different accessibility needs. Might be possible.
