·         Video & Display: Several new video and display features are coming to Xbox, including Auto Low-Latency Mode (ALLM), AMD Radeon™ FreeSync and 1440p support.  

·         Streaming & Captures: We’re introducing a new Mixer Interactive feature called Share Controller, enabling streamers on Xbox One to share control of their game with a viewer on Mixer.com. You can also now start Mixer broadcasts from anywhere on Xbox One, making streaming easier than ever. In addition, you can now share captured screenshots and clips directly to Twitter from the Broadcast & Capture tab of the Guide.

·         Audio & Ease of Access: Based on fan feedback, we’ve added new Narrator volume controls that are independent from system audio volume. You can also now selectively balance game audio against background music within the Guide, giving you direct control to fine-tune your gaming session. System sounds on Home and in the Guide have been completely revamped to also support spatial audio.
