Minecraft's latest update brings new additions for players around various devices

New Xbox One Dashboard now open to all 2

New Xbox One Dashboard now open to all 2

You can select any title or person and create a Block - grouping together all the relevant info - which then appears at the bottom of the screen a little bit like an XMB.

Microsoft's Xbox Fall Update now allows up to 40 pins. You can now use your controller's bumpers to toggle between menus in the Guide, as it now scrolls horizontally, instead of vertically.

Yesterday, Microsoft released the Fall Update for the Xbox One family of consoles, before offering the Fall Creators Update for Windows PCs today.

Part of the new user interface within the Xbox Fall Update is based on the concept of large "blocks" of content that can dominate the page. They can also find some Game invites in the Multiplayer tab of the Guide.

Hate crimes in Wales up by 22%, Home Office data shows
The number of hate crime incidents recorded by the police reached a record monthly level of 6,000 incidents in June. Across England and Wales the rise in the number of hate crimes was larger, with an increase of 29% since past year .

Microsoft also extended the number of shortcuts, or "pins", that you can have on the screen at any one time.

You're even able to great new sections on the front welcome page which Microsoft is calling "blocks".

Its been in preview for a few months but its now launching for every Xbox One owner, and presumably will be the dashboard pre-loaded onto the Xbox One X. Yes, its new dashboard time, something that usually comes once a year, just like Santa but a few months earlier! You can now easily manage who sees your activity feed content through the "Others can see your activity feed" privacy setting.

Game blocks can include all sorts of stuff about the game.

Google Photos can now tell your pet apart from other animals
Or worse, scroll manually through the perhaps hundreds or thousands of photos you perhaps already have stored on Google Photos. Google is rolling out today a change to Google Photos that will allow you to search for images of your pets by name.

Xbox Assist can help you when you have a problem. And, if you don't have an external HDD handy, you'll be able to do it via a network transfer when you have both machines connected. This enables players to get into touch with the official and community tournaments that they have already joined.

You can also now, space permitting, download 4K and Xbox One Enhanced game content ahead of schedule.

The Broadcast & Capture tab in Guide is also now more deeply integrated with Mixer.

Those with experience of using the Xbox One dashboard will know that often it can become hard to find what you are looking for, especially, if you own a lot of items.

Microsoft rolls out new Windows 10 update and laptops
You can also go to the Windows Update section in the Settings app to see if you're part of the first group to receive the update. The next update to Microsoft's flagship Windows 10 computer software has been made available to consumers for the first time.
