That Xbox September update arrived today bringing several improvements to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC, including the introduction of party chat noise reduction across all platforms. Other features include an overhaul to the games library, more save location options, and the ability to customize the Xbox button color on the Elite Wireless Controller Series 2.
Party chat noise suppression does not block singing
Party chat noise suppression was introduced to Xbox Series X|S consoles in August, but has now rolled out to Xbox One and PC as well. The aim is to block out unwanted background noise such as gamepad clicks and breathing. Unfortunately, singing is not one of them. If you still want to hear other people’s music, you can switch off noise cancellation in the options.
The My Games & Apps library has also been redesigned. The goal is to show all games that are available to play and install through ownership or subscriptions such as Games With Gold and Game Pass. Players can filter by any of these categories, and groups are still available for those who don’t want to watch every game at once.
Another new option is to choose different default install locations for games and apps on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles. For example, Xbox Series X|S players can choose install locations for Xbox Series X|S games, backward compatible games, and apps. Alternatively, players can let the console decide which location is best for them.
Finally on console, the Xbox button color on the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller is now customizable with over 16 million light tones. Meanwhile, Xbox Game Bar on PC offers more sharing options for each shot, and app users aren’t left out as they get a new Start Party button. All of these changes are available with today’s Xbox September Update.
In other news, the Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld was unveiled with a release window and price. Elsewhere, a crossover between Ted Lasso and AFC Richmond has been confirmed for FIFA 23.
