Keep track of your achievements in upcoming Xbox One update
Posted on June 13, 2014 by Oscar Gonzalez

As E3 comes to a close, Microsoft announced some of the new features for the next Xbox One update. For those that love your achievements, a new features will help track your achievements better than before.

The new Achievement Snap does a few things that will help those "achievement hunters." It'll let you track how you're progressing in a game's achievements by showing a progress bar for each one. You can change the list as you see fit so that you can give certain achievements priority over the rest. If there's one achievement that's giving you a too hard of a time, then you can have the Xbox One do a search online to find some help.

Along with Achievement Snap, there are a few more features coming with the next update including:

  • Double-tap to Snap.  Double-tap the button on your controller to bring up Snap Center, where you can launch Achievements or any other snap-able app, without leaving your game. Already have an app snapped? Double-tap quickly switches between your game and the snapped app.
  • Choice of Spoken Language. Folks in New Zealand, Ireland and Austria, with this update in July, will be able to select voice control using the English or German voice models from other countries.  And if you're an expat in an English-speaking country, you, too, can choose any of the other English language models that fit you.
  • Future Digital Bundles and Compilation Discs. We’re doing some work now so that publishers will have options for great digital bundle and disc compilation offerings in the future. As we test this feature, we’ll be seeing more flexible combinations of game titles and game content.
  • ‘Like’ Game DVR clips. We’re adding the ability to ‘Like’ all your favorite Game DVR clips as well as activity feed items in SmartGlass.

These new features will come sometime in July when a new Xbox One update rolls out.
