Xbox At Gamescom 2017 Details

Microsoft has announced a number of new features that arrive today in this month's update for Xbox One users. Images can be uploaded from the Xbox One, Windows PC, and mobile phones. The only stipulation? Keep it clean, folks.

- Mixer Co-streaming is now on console, for everyone: With just a few clicks, you and up to three of your friends can stream together in a single broadcast. Players will be able to invite each other to co-stream and join a co-stream directly from the console. To accept an invite, hold down the center Xbox button on your controller when you see the invite notification. Microsoft also says it is now easier to discover live broadcasts from Club members.

ITV PLC Appoint Carolyn McCall as New Chief Executive
However, under the performance share plan McCall will be eligible for 265% of salary, while Crozier was awarded 225%. McCall will receive an annual salary of £900,000 ($1.18 million) and a pension allowance of 15 percent of her salary.

Aside from the accessibility and freedom of expression that the update allows, the Xbox One can now also be used with a single press of a button on the controller. This means that when one's controller is turned on, the Xbox will automatically sign them into their profile. This should help make the sign-in process a bit more simple especially for those that have multiple Xbox profiles on their console. "Once linked, we'll sign-in to your Xbox with that profile when that controller turns on, and you'll be ready to play", writes Major Nelson, Director of Xbox Programming at Microsoft. You can create an Arena tournament from the Club screen, then by selecting the Tournaments tab, then clicking "Create Tournament" followed by the option to select a game. There is also visibility improvements that allow users to easily see who is watching a current match, who is active, who has completed the tournament, and more.

Updates to the Xbox App on iOS and Android brought new features as well, like Looking For Group sharing, Game Pass browsing, and updated Language/Location Settings. For those of you on Android a bonus feature is the support for Chat Bubbles.
