Xbox One’s July update is rolling out
Xbox One’s July system update is now rolling out, bringing with it a couple of new features.
First up is the introduction of the Play Later option for Xbox Game Pass subscribers. This new addition allows subscribers to create a list of Xbox Game Pass games that they wish to play in the future. This list can be managed from the console or Game Pass mobile app.
In addition, the July update expands the supported countries for Alexa voice commands and introduces new Alex voice commands for Xbox Game Pass, friends, and controllers.
“Try saying, ‘Alexa, ask Xbox what’s new on Game Pass?’ Want to stay up-to-date with what your friends are doing on Xbox? You can ask Alexa who’s online, what your friends are playing, and more. Try saying, ‘Alexa, ask Xbox what are my friends playing?’ Microsoft adds. “Finally, you are now able to start pairing your controller with your Xbox from the convenience of your couch. Just say, ‘Alexa, ask Xbox to pair my controller’ to put your console into pairing mode!”
