On Monday, Microsoft released the Xbox One Fall Update, enhancing several of the experiences on all Xbox One consoles. Turns out the update also introduces some new privacy-related settings, helping you further control your Activity Feed.

Shared by Major Nelson, the changes allow you to decide who can see your posts to your activity feed. You can set it to everybody, friends, or block altogether. Subsequent tweets from Major Nelson reveal this also allows you to set your game, party, invite and messages privacy as desired, but still allow others to see feed content. The settings can be found on the web, or on the console by navigating to My Profile, Privacy, View Details, Communications, and Multiplayer.

This is definitely a welcome change, helping users, and even parents, control the content shared on Xbox Live. Do you find this feature useful? Drop us a comment below to let us know your thoughts!
