Xbox One update brings AMD Freesync support, automatic TV game mode switching

An example of screen tearing

The first episode had details on Sea of Thieves, PixArk, and the Xbox version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

Microsoft is adding support for AMD's FreeSync displays to its Xbox One X and Xbox One S consoles soon. TVs that are coming to market this year will have the capability to enable their low-latency modes automatically. There are 4K FreeSync monitors, ultrawide FreeSync monitors, 1440p FreeSync monitors, 1080p FreeSync monitors. The upcoming Xbox spring update already includes 1440p support on the Xbox One S and Xbox One X for monitors, but the addition of FreeSync will allow compatible displays to sync refresh rates with Microsoft's consoles.

Freesync technology helps get rid of tearing and stuttering while gaming, enabling the display and Xbox One to work together to create a smooth and seamless gaming experience.

Deadly package explosion at Austin, Texas home
Austin police deployed a blast team, coordinated with federal explosive investigators and spoke with "multiple witnesses". Austin Police are responding to reports of a package that exploded at a home in East Austin Monday.

This mode will detect when a game is launched from the Xbox interface and will automatically switch the TV to low-latency mode or game mode.

Along with FreeSync, Xbox One users will also be introduced to the new "share to Twitter" feature, which allows users to share gameplay clips and screenshots right onto their Twitter. LFC requires support from the graphics driver as well as the monitor, so it will be interesting to see how well the system's mostly-30-FPS Xbox games work in FreeSync mode.

The Xbox Engineering team has been working on the feature, which is called Auto Low Latency Mode, and it will work with any "supported TV". Anytime a Mixer viewer shares their controller, PC viewers can take control using either their physical controller or a virtual on-screen one.
