Microsoft today announced that a select set of features set to debut in the Xbox October Update are now available for Insiders to test out. The features offer a preview of what’s coming in October, including updates to the wish list feature, Mixer improvements, and more.
The improvements in this update are quite varied. For the wish list feature, the October Update will bring notifications for when items on your wish list get discounted. If you like watching Mixer on your Xbox One, the viewing experience will be integrated directly into the dashboard with the October Update, eliminating the need to open a separate app.
Here’s a quick rundown of some of the other notable additions available to test out now:
Alpha ring testers are the first to get these updates, and they’re available to test now. Microsoft says that Beta, Delta, and Omega ring testers will get access to these updates “in the coming weeks” ahead of their broader release. Additionally, Microsoft says select Xbox Insiders may see some new features that aren’t documented just yet.
