  • Microsoft Brings FastStart, Game Grouping, More With Xbox's July Update

By now, most people will have received the latest system update for their Xbox One. It's now in Xbox Game Preview with an official launch coming later, and this Xbox One version has brought a few updates with it. FastStartFirst introduced three weeks ago for Alpha and Alpha Skip Ahead Insider rings, FastStart now arrives for all. FastStart-enabled games prioritize the most important parts of the game first, saving the rest of the data to download in the background while you're playing the first few minutes of the game. This allows you to hop into a game more quickly after downloading only a portion of the full title.

Surprisingly, the list of supported games, which you can find on Polygon, also includes Xbox 360 and original Xbox games, so it's nice to see this isn't a feature strictly for the hot new titles. FastStart now applies to all English-language games in the Xbox Game Pass, including Fallout 4, Sea of Thieves, Elder Scrolls Online, and more.
