Xbox will soon mute TV speakers when wearing a headset

(Pocket-lint): Microsoft is working on a feature for Xbox consoles that will see the audio from the speakers automatically muted when the headphones are in use.

Detailed on the Xbox Insiders Alpha Skip-Ahead blog, the patch would fix one of the longest-running issues with the Series X and Series S consoles, though it’s still relatively minor.

Currently, even when an Xbox headset is connected, the volume of the screen speakers remains at the same level. Therefore, this requires a separate action to ensure that the sound is not played simultaneously.

However, with the feature making its way onto the Xbox Insiders testing schedule, that is likely to be a thing of the past for a long time. And if it does, or when it does, Microsoft suggests that it will appear as an option in the audio settings menus.

For PS5 users, of course, this is something that has been available since its launch.

Still, Microsoft doesn’t stop there with potential platform changes.

The company is also working on a new feature for color blind gamers, a feature that replicates what we’ve seen in the main titles and adds a filter on menus, movies, apps, and games.

“[La fonctionnalité] supports multiple forms of color blindness and filters can be adjusted according to your preferences without affecting performance, screenshots or game clips, ”the blog reads.

As someone with a fairly strong protanopia, this is a welcome change on a personal level, and one that is long overdue. It remains to be seen how well it implements in the Xbox operating system and games, literally, but it is a step in the right direction for those with accessibility issues.
