Version 10.0.22621.1836 of the Xbox system update is equipped with great technology, because since May 2022 Microsoft has been testing new filters to block background noise in Xbox party chats. Very good work has already been done with these filters in Microsoft Teams and now, after a successful testing phase, the principle is starting to work normally among Insiders. If your console is running in Instant Run mode, this new version may already be installed on your device. Otherwise, it will be downloaded at the latest the next time the Xbox starts. But what exactly is the technical innovation that version 10.0.22621.1836 brings?
Background noise in Xbox hangout is now a thing of the past
Anyone who loves to gamble and has activated a group chat is familiar with the various background noises that arise during gameplay. Mouse clicks, scattered keyboards or gamepads as well as slapping gamers taking a short break with an energy drink and snacks, but forgetting to switch the microphone to mute. By filtering out this noise, Xbox Hangouts should now be more user-friendly.
But that’s not all, because automatic scaling should also bring advantages. This interacts with the motion circuits near the microphone and adjusts the volume accordingly. However, this update gives players another new opportunity.
Direct cloud connection should now lead directly to games that your friends share via screenshots and game clips. But you need an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.
Overall, version 10.0.22621.1836 seems to be well thought out and has some cool and useful new features. What do the players among us say about these updates from Microsoft?
