Microsoft is working on a new Careers system for Xbox Achievements

Microsoft is working on a new Careers system for Xbox Achievements

By becoming an Xbox Insider you get to experience work-in-progress content and features before anyone else, while it offers all Xbox owners a sneak peek at what's coming down the line (or not if something proves unpopular). It's there for anyone who wants to game for an extended period of time without any of the usual interruptions. The highlight feature has to be the ability to set your online status as "Do not Disturb", something fans have always been asking for. Some new features will be available right away, with others rolling out over the next several weeks. Previously you could choose to automatically shut down your console after one hour or six hours of inactivity, but now there are hourly increments in between those options for you to shut down your console after two, three, four or five hours.

Mini Game Hubs: Soon to be available in the Guide. This way, you can easily see which Achievements you're closest to and quickly launch the game to achieve them. It can be found under the widget Next Achievements, and you can filter upcoming unlocks via rarity, value or just by how close they are.

A small group of users will receive a look at experimental features as well to allow Microsoft to gauge interest before pursuing them further. "We'll be including a "Do not disturb" online status, which will suppress notifications and let your friends know that you're not available for another game or activity right now", said Microsoft. All together, you've got plenty of decent quality of life updates that should make using the Xbox One even better.

Alpha Insider update 9/1/18
