Achievements

At Xbox, we’re always listening to our fans. As we continue to evolve the new Xbox mobile app on iOS and Android, we’ve heard your feedback that you want to bring achievements back to the Xbox app. Last month, we began rolling out and testing Achievement Experiences in the Xbox app, and starting today, select players can view monthly leaderboards to see how you stack up against your friends. We will also be adding the ability to display achievements on game detail pages to help you track your progress. Everyone will see these updates in the app by the end of the month, and we’ll continue to refine the experience over time. Stay tuned for more Xbox mobile app updates in the near future.

Play Xbox Game Pass games with your friends

Playing games with your friends just got easier with Xbox Game Pass on your console. Play with Friends now appears when friends are playing any Xbox Game Pass game. You can either jump straight into a joinable multiplayer session or start installing the games your friends are currently playing.

New game recommendations and collections coming to Xbox Game Pass

Explore new game recommendations and collections in Game Pass on your console. Discover another gem based on your game history with ‘Because You’ve Played’ or find a game to play with friends in ‘Multiplayer’. And that’s not all – we are adding even more collections like First Person Shooter, Sci-Fi, Horror, Sandbox, Mystery, Anime, Fantasy, Cute , and more. With all of these collections landing in your console’s Game Pass hub, you’re sure to find something to suit your mood.

Pause the game and speed up your downloads

Download your games as quickly as possible with the new Pause Game feature in My Games & Apps. Today’s queue notifies you when your active game is slowing down download speeds. You will now have the option to pause your active game to free up bandwidth and get the most efficient download speeds. Then, with Quick Resume, you can go straight back to your game whenever you want to start playing again.
