If you’re an Xbox user, prepare yourself because the July 2019 Xbox update is right around the corner. Xbox officials announced the update will start rolling out today:

Team Xbox has been busy cooking up new features for the July 2019 Xbox Update, which begins rolling out today.

This is great news because many console gamers have been waiting for some key changes since the last update.

Maybe the bigger news is that the update is the result of a strong collaboration with Xbox insiders who actively contributed to all the new features and helped with their development:

These updates are based on feedback from our Xbox Insiders who have helped to shape these features. A huge thank you to all our Xbox Insiders for your valuable input and continued participation.

This means that the new features will be more user-focused. Speaking of them, let’s see what they are and how they will impact your interaction with the console, games, and other players.

New features for Xbox Game Pass

Xbox Game Pass has over 100 games that you can download and play in exchange for a low-monthly fee. With the new update, Xbox introduces the Play Later feature.

This feature allows you to make a list of games from the Xbox Game Pass library that you can edit, download, and modify from the console or the Game Pass mobile app.

After introducing Alexa voice support control some time ago, now this feature expands to a lot more countries and new voice commands.

Some examples include: Alexa, ask Xbox what’s new on Game Pass?”, “Alexa, ask Xbox what are my friends playing?”, and “Alexa, ask Xbox to pair my controller.
