The Xbox November Update Is Out Now With Some Great New Features

Discord voice channels! A captures app! It's all here!

The Xbox November update is rolling out to all users as of today, bringing with it some great new improvements especially when it comes to connecting and sharing with others.

Among the laundry list of new features and updates is the ability to quickly join Discord voice channels directly from the guide menu, provided you’ve linked your Discord account to Xbox. I’ve been using this feature in the Alpha version of the update for a little while and it works wonderfully, plus it includes automatic noise suppression no matter what headset or microphone you’re using which is really neat.

There’s also a brand-new Captures app that should come as a massive relief to anyone (hello, games media!) that regularly needs to view, share or transfer screenshots and captured video from their Xbox console. It’ll allow easier browsing of capture as well as direct transfer to external drives – yay!
