Today, Microsoft rolled out June's Xbox One update. According to the press release Windows Central received, this month brings improvements to manage game libraries. However, there are some changes coming to Official Clubs as well. You can take a look at the major changes below, with comments from Jonathan Hildebrandt, the Principal Program Manager Lead for the Xbox Experience.
The June 2020 Update adds overlays to game tiles in My Games & Apps, Home, and Guide to make it easier to tell at-a-glance where you got a game. This release will support games from Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Live Gold, and EA Access subscriptions.
Members of any Xbox Game Pass membership or Xbox Live Gold will also now see a badge next to their Gamertag on Home and in the Guide, highlighting those memberships.
Official Clubs are created and managed by game developers and their community managers, and serve as an official source for information and updates. With all the Clubs on Xbox, it can be tough to immediately tell if the one you're looking at is the Official Club. We've added verification badges to make it easier to see which Clubs are run by the developers directly.
