  • Re-arrange Pins on Home and access them offline
  • Updating Activity Feed in Xbox One
  • Joinable Twitch Broadcasts
  • Improvements to Suggested Friends

Besides new features, Microsoft also brought some improvements that it didn’t with the November update, like improved suggested friends feed, a compact mode for the Windows 10 Xbox app and the ability to access games and apps in the offline mode.
