Detailed on the Xbox Blog, the update will have smaller features to make Xbox One owner's experience just a little easier. Available in the Guide, the feature tracks all Achievements that you're close to unlocking across all your games, with the ability to filter the results further. This also allows you to easily see which Achievements are almost achieved alongside links to quick load those games. I'm sure Microsoft has a lot of new features planned.

We're also getting Mini Game Hubs, which allow access to content from recently played games from a Game Hub without needing to exit whatever game you are playing. Mini Game Hubs provide an easy way to see friends who are now playing, upcoming achievements, and more.

There are also a few tweaks to social settings.

The update will also add a "Do Not Disturb" online status, to let friends know you're now unavailable, while the community feed has also been tweaked to make it easier to view. Comments are also being rearranged to place those that are most recent at the top and you will be able to see who has liked your comments. The Narrator is also now able to read large amounts of text. Additional inactivity shutdown options are also being added, letting users determine whether the Xbox One should shut down at two, three, four, or five hours, with the one or six options sticking around too.

A fix is now being determined for guide/home crashes.

The left and right navigation for selecting date and time during Tournament creation is now reversed when the console language is set to Arabic or Hebrew.
