The February preview build is now rolling out to Xbox One Preview members, bringing the oft-requested Party feature, which allows you to see who's in a Party before joining. The update also brings the Gamerscore Leaderboard, ability to join your friends' Twitch broadcasts, and much more.
Here's the breakdown of what's included:
- See who's in a Party: Xbox One Preview participants will be able to see who's in a Party before joining. When you view the profile of a friend who is in a Party in the guide, you will now be able to see who else they're playing with. Click the 'Chat' button which appears immediately below the user to jump in and see who is in the Party.
- Gamerscore Leaderboard: Through the Gamerscore Leaderboard, see where you stand relative to your friends by comparing total gamerscore, as well as biggest gains over a rolling 30-day period.
- Re-arrange Pins on Home and access them offline: In Preview, you will now be able to rearrange individual pins. We also made Pins accessible for launching when you are offline.
- Updating Activity Feed in Xbox One: Your activity feed in Xbox One Preview will inform you when there are new items in your feed. Clicking the link will take you to the top of your feed where you'll see a run-down of the newest posts.
- Joinable Twitch Broadcasts: In Preview, Game Hubs as well as the game tile will allow you to easily launch Twitch.tv broadcasts if friends are broadcasting.
- Improvements to Suggested Friends: Check out the new Friend Suggestions area in Community and the Friends list in the Guide on Xbox One. Friend Suggestions include the gamertag, real name (if shared), gamerpic or Xbox Avatar image, and the reason the suggestion was made to you.
- Hide games from 'ready-to-install' list: Fans asked that we re-enable the ability to hide content like betas, trials, games, and apps that they no longer want to install. Xbox One Preview members will be able to start using this feature again.
