The May Xbox One update is finally available for everyone and implements 120Hz video refresh rate and Discord support; and introduces some interesting news, including the ability to trim video directly from the Guide.
After activating the “variable refresh rate” option and implemented support for the 1440p resolution, thanks to the new May Xbox One update, users can also boast 120Hz support. Gamers using monitors and televisions that support a 120Hz refresh rate can now turn on a 120Hz support (on Xbox One S and One X) for 1080p and 1440p output resolutions, taking full advantage of the 120Hz displays.
Players can also connect their Discord account to the Xbox Live account, both from console and PC, allowing friends and users on our Discord servers to view the games played. We point out that everything is limited to the sharing profiles, therefore it is not possible to exploit the server and voice chat system of Discord.
Among the other innovations included in the Xbox One update, we mention the possibility to trim video directly from the Guide without accessing the Upload Studio, some family settings options have been implemented and improved, allowing to manage in a more detailed way the various members of the family.
Some of the button commands throughout the dashboard are being refreshed for easier navigation. The Xbox Accessories app has been modernized to make it easier to navigate and to look and feel more consistent with the rest of the Xbox One dashboard. All aimed at making navigation and interaction easier, faster and more intuitive.
