What a sweeeeet freakin update. I always had to open the party to figure out whos talking and to familiarize myself with peoples voices so I dont have to keep gong back. The arenas is probably gonna be pretty cool for a lot of people, but I dont see myself as a competitive gamer.
A simple bad habit will mar an otherwise flawless character, as a single ink drop soils the pure white page.

Party overlay will help with boosting sessions and putting a name to that voice.

XBL is easily in its best state since 2006 right now with all the updates and additions to it. I'm really impressed.
Speak for yourself, I couldn't care less about all the updates, don't like all the changes which makes things worse and affects stability. The people behind all the changes seem to be doing a job that doesn't need doing, and they seem to also lack common sense
That's why we have an insider program. I think the majority of players really enjoy what Microsoft is doing.

I can not download any apps since the last xbox insider update, I contacted the help team and they tried to help but after a few hours of troubleshooting they just told me that the insider program has some bugs and they are trying their best at ironing them out.

Roostetsucking system sounds? If you're talking about the Xbox One chime on/off sounds go to Settings > Power mode & startup > Startup chime. If that's not what you're referring to you need to be more specific.

Yeah, putting a name to a voice is the most annoying part of parties currently, unless you know the people pretty well.

no not the startup sound; i mean every sound that comes out of the xbox when navigating menus, when a notification or achievement popup occurs etc. ...for people that dont want to hear every swoosh or click thru their 500watt system all the time...a simple option to switch it off and make the xbox more silent.
every console since the sega saturn has had this option xcept the xbx1
so yeah it appears the "engineers" at microsoft suck rooster by choice...

Yup as I said some BS update that causes nothing but annoying trouble:

- screenshots and video captures are not showing up your feed and friend's feed, only shows the main thumbnail of the game
- Showcase in your feed is gone again and the actual showcase item now shows up in your feed like a regular activity with the broke azz main game thumbnail even when you enlarge it.

That's some major BS I tell you, erases the point of taking screenshots and recording videos.

Updates has been a cancer ever since...
