Other features in the current preview update include improvements to the Xbox Guide which will show closest achievable Achievements and a Mini Games Hub for quick info and highlights about the game being played. I'm sure Microsoft has a lot of new features planned.

The Xbox One Guide is getting a new Next Achievements feature with the latest system update, too.

The Xbox Career System sounds quite interesting on paper, giving players new incentives in obtaining Achievements, so it will be interesting to see how it gets implemented. Sort filters allow you to prioritize next Achievements by closest, most common, rarest, most common rare, and highest Gamerscore. These Mini Game Hubs contain the same content seen in regular hubs, such as Achievements, friend activity and so on.

There are also a few tweaks to social settings. By selecting Do not disturb, your Xbox will suppress all notifications from appearing, but also inform your friends that you aren't available. You'll soon be able to see a peek of the most recent comment on community posts, with comments rearranged to place those that are most recent at the top. The Narrator is also now able to read large amounts of text.

To address user feedback, we're adding additional inactivity shutdown options to the Power mode & startup menu. Now there are one and six hour options, but Microsoft chose to add, two, three, four, and five hour options after reviewing feedback from users.

A fix is now being determined for guide/home crashes.

For users encountering issues where some installed games are failing to launch: If the games are installed to an external drive, Insiders are being asked to copy the game to the internal drive or attempt to delete the title and re-download.
