Less than two years after their release, the Xbox Series X and S will receive an update that will vastly improve the player experience, at least the most eager gamers. Next-gen consoles are already loading faster than Xbox One, but they’re about to get even faster. Indeed, the Xbox developer has confirmed that the Xbox Series X/S loading animation will be shorter.

As such, reduced load times will soon be available to all Xbox gamers, whether Series X or Series S. In addition, gamers can now enjoy their favorite Xbox games on their Samsung TV without a console through the Xbox for Smart TV app.

The Xbox Series X and S boot animation is currently around 9 seconds long. With the next update, it will only take 4 seconds. Josh Munsey, developer of Xbox¸, actually confirmed that he created “a shorter loading animation (~4s) than the original loading animation (~9s), which helps reduce the overall load time.” You can see in the tweet the time difference between the old and new launch animations.
