Xbox October update includes many user feedback features

Microsoft added a host of new features to its Xbox operating system this week with the release of the new Xbox October Update to improve the Xbox experience for users and provide “brand new features based on your feedback.” Features from this month’s Xbox update include the ability to change the TV volume from Xbox Series X|S consoles, mute all startup sounds, update Xbox controller firmware, improve setup screens, and more.

“If you make the console your home Xbox, friends and family can access your games and content when you’re not signed in. Your home Xbox also allows you to play digital games offline. We’re adding several new setup screens to make it easier for you to select and change your home console when setting up your new Xbox. You can set up your Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One console to use different power modes based on your preferences. “

October Xbox update.

“You can now change the volume of your TV in the Audio and Music section of the Xbox guide. To get started, press the Xbox button on your controller, open the guide, and go to the Audio and Music section, where you’ll see buttons to change the TV’s volume or turn it off.

This eliminates the need to reach for the TV remote to change the volume while playing a game or watching a movie. Xbox Series X|S consoles can use an HDMI feature called Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) to send commands to and from CECenabled devices, such as TVs, that are connected to the console. Starting today, we’re enabling a new feature for Xbox Series X|S consoles connected to TVs via HDMI.”

“We’re adding a fanrequested feature to give you the option to choose a silent start. You should now be able to adjust the settings so that you can turn off all sounds on Xbox startup. Go to Profile & System > Settings > General > Volume & Audio Output > Advanced Options and select Mute Startup Sounds. Now you can also customize the sound on this page.”
