Some changes have also been made to the option linked to“Home” console settingthat is the one that allows you to use the games even offline and to share your library with other users on the same console.
The option can be changed 5 times a year, and is now represented more clearly and with a few more explanations in the Xbox Series X | S and Xbox One dashboard. The names of the modes have been changed shutdown of the console, which are now called “Shutdown” for complete shutdown and “Hibernation” for standby.
