Xbox users have received good news – their comrades playing loud music in group chats, aggressively clicking keys and / or panting into microphones will no longer annoy other participants in the conversation. Yesterday, Xbox Series X and S owners began receiving noise cancellation updates in group chats that can eliminate such noise.
Noise cancellation is activated by default, but Microsoft notes that you can easily turn off the feature – just click on the appropriate switch in the settings.
As reported by The Verge, Xbox’s noise reduction is largely identical to Discord’s Krisp audio filters and NVIDIA’s Broadcast app, which also allows PC owners to cut out background noise.
The new addition to Xbox Settings also provides another option to join games marked by friends. Microsoft says that now people with whom the user shares clips or screenshots of the game world can immediately start playing the corresponding game on a mobile device or PC using cloud services.
To start playing in the browser, a couple of clicks are enough after receiving a clip or image – in much the same way, Google Stadia allows you to “jump” into games directly from sent videos. Microsoft notes that certain games require Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to join.
