Microsoft releases the May 2020 Xbox One Update with new features

Today, Microsoft announced the May 2020 Xbox One Update, which to be clear, has nothing to do with the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. The Xbox update that coincided with the May update for Windows 10 was released in April. If that sounds confusing, it's because it is. Luckily, all you really need to know are the features coming to your Xbox One console.

All of this stuff was announced earlier this month when the company started seeding version 2005 to Xbox Insiders. More improvements are being made to the Guide, with Microsoft wanting it to serve as the only thing you need to play. The default tab is now on the left, rather than in the center, and there are fewer tabs. Friend Suggestions is now under Find Someone, and Discover Clubs can be found on the Clubs page.

There's a redesigned Community page, which splits content into four channels: shared by friends, official posts from games, Club activity, and Popular on Xbox Live. There are new filters for game collections, such as Genre and Player Count.

Finally, as always, you'll find Mixer improvements. It's supposed to be better for browsing streams, as you'll now see live thumbnails.
