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.
According to Microsoft, games that utilize the feature will half the amount of time it takes from when a download begins to the moment you're actually able to play it. You can also assign custom names to each Group, organize and order them, and add individual Groups to Home. More Search OptionsPlayers can now press the Y button while in the dashboard to bring up the search box. Share Controller ImprovementsThis somewhat controversial feature has received improvements to make it easier to it on the internet.

While in this mode game audio is muted, making it ideal for talking to your audience while switching from game to game or setting up before you start playing. There's even the opportunity to do full broadcasts in this mode if you choose. Those come alongside some under-the-hood improvements to broadcasting quality and stability.
The update started rolling out for everybody yesterday, July 5th, so if you haven't received it already, you should be getting these features soon.
