Your console will soon boot silently and have a handy filtering feature


We take a closer look at the upcoming Xbox update.

The latest update for Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One released just a few days ago and brought some useful updates including a revamped game library design. An alpha update has now been released which extends the library’s filtering functionality. Also, the sound of the recently shortened boot animation may soon be muted.

Update preview disables startup sound

If there’s one thing you can’t fault current Xbox consoles for, it’s that their startup animations are boring. The boot process of the devices is designed in a classy way and works smoothly. However, for some users – especially those with headphones connected to the console – the startup sound is too loud.

Microsoft offers a remedy in its latest alpha update: In the future, the startup sound can be disabled in the system settings. The option is hidden in the additional options in the menu volume and audio output.

Several filters in the game library

In addition, you can now precisely filter your toy library according to several aspects within a category. Categories include, for example, the genre of a game or the number of players supported. In addition, there is a redesign of the filter function and an option with which all defined tags can be deleted in no time.

Multiple tags can now be defined in a category.

New home screen still reserved for a small selection of insiders

Only a few participants of the preview program have access to a reverse start page. There is a new search bar on it, with which games and applications can be called up, as well as an icon that leads directly to system settings.

Here you can see the impressions of the upcoming home screen:
