Microsoft Rewards app is now available for everyone on Xbox One

Microsoft's Major Nelson today has announced that the July Xbox Update is now rolling out to users across the world. Naturally, this isn't ideal, particularly for those who play competitive titles in which getting early access to the game can give you an advantage over your late-coming peers. This system, which was unveiled at E3 2018, targets the most important files needed to begin playing and downloads those first, which should allow players to hop into games they are downloading twice as fast. With Groups, you can create multiple collections of content made up of anything from within My Games & Apps.

This month's update introduces a variety of features and enhancements, such as FastStart for select titles, new Mixer options, Pins enhancement with Groups, new search options and more. However, in the case of both consoles, it's a coin toss how much of the game is actually available to you when you reach the playable threshold. You're also able to buy them if you wish to take that route.

The catch is that the feature is only available right now on certain English-language titles in the Game Pass catalog. Users can also tinker with them in a number of ways, including adding custom names to each Group and adding individual Groups to Home.

Sometimes they're super-dramatic reveals, or shocking teases for the upcoming films. and sometimes, it's an ant playing drums. We're taken to the Lang house-eerily deserted, with the TV cut to an emergency broadcasting channel.

As an added bonus, Groups will be tied to your Xbox Live account and will automatically sync across multiple Xbox One consoles. You can now press the Y button anywhere on the dashboard to bring up the search box and look for Settings, Games, or products in the store. You can now broadcast your webcam in full screen from your Xbox, and the quality and performance of broadcasts have also been improved in Mixer, according to Microsoft. You'll see the most relevant results first, but the "more results" button allows you to open up a full page of search results if you still haven't found what you wanted.

The July Xbox update launches later today.

Xbox's July update brings a bunch of handy improvements.
