The Xbox April update is now available and here’s what it includes


The Xbox April update has started to be available to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S users since early this morning, after Microsoft also released a new version of the Xbox app for PC, loaded with new features. While it’s true that the biggest battery of new features have come to the compatible platform, console users have also received a few things to consider.

As usual, the announcement of the new Xbox April update was made through Xbox Wire, the place where the people from Redmond make all the important announcements related to the platform. On this occasion, there were three new features that affect Xbox One and Xbox X Series X|S users, two of them related to the social aspects of the platform.

The April update of Xbox arrives with three interesting new features

On the one hand, new features related to Discord have been added. From now on, if we use Discord Voice on our Xbox, we will be able to listen to the audio of the soundboard of other people in the channel or in the call itself. However, if we do not want to listen to it, the option to mute it has also been incorporated, for which we will only have to open the guide, go to options and choose the option to mute soundboard.

Another of the new features that have been incorporated in the Xbox April update is related to image capture. We must remember that, for some time, Xbox screenshots have a limited life on the Xbox network, having to save them on OneDrive if we want to keep them over time. Well, from now on, when we save our screenshots on the service, we will receive a notification if we are running out of space, to have greater control of what we can save.

Finally, the last new feature of this update is a new installation option. Basically, a new control system has been incorporated to block which users of our console can install or uninstall games and applications, something ideal if the little ones of the house also enjoy our console. To do this, a “guest pin” will be established, which can be configured through Settings > Access Restrictions > System.
