Looking at some of the updates that rolled out for Xbox this year, it comes at a surprise with the number of them for 2022 alone. In February, the firm shipped native Twitch integration via the dashboard which many could not have predicted. Additionally, March went on to include new features like quick resume pin, audio overhaul, and share button remapping.

That same month, Microsoft implemented a new power saver mode which allows users to game without the console grabbing the most out of your electricity bill. Moving forward to this summer, a surprise release for Discord went live for Xbox Insider ring. What makes the reveal so baffling is how soon it came with PlayStation support still underway – even after the stake investment in the company too.

This week, Microsoft reveals new features are arriving to console including party chat noise suppression. Essentially, users can talk with friends within a party and the users can filter out smaller audible nuisances such as clicking and background noise.

If you use party chat on your Xbox Series X|S console, you may notice fewer unwanted noises and interruptions than before. Noise suppression helps remove noises like gamepad clicks, breathing, and background noise from your parties. If you want to keep some types of background noise like music in your parties, you can also turn noise suppression off. Just open the guide, scroll to Parties & chats, and select Options. There you can enable or disable noise suppression.

Furthermore, a new feature is also added to PC & mobile users. When viewing shared content such as pictures or videos via the Xbox portal, you can simply click “Play” and jump right into the game. This tool certainly is a nod to what Google did with Stadia in the past and certainly is a welcomed addition to Xbox.

“Millions of Xbox gamers share game clips and screenshots with their friends with link sharing, released late last year. Now the friends you share your game clips and screenshots with can not only watch your captures, they can start playing right away on their device with cloud gaming. (Some games require Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for cloud gaming.)”

Similarly, the same is now achievable over on Google. Through the search engine, you can launch games through search now via Xbox Cloud Gaming. This can also be applied to Stadia, Luna, and GeForce Now as well. You can read the full report by heading here.
