Xbox Series X and S update improves console’s best feature: Quick Resume gets an upgrade

Xbox Series X and Series S consoles are about to receive a big new system update.

The next major firmware update is currently being tested by early access preview members.

And according to Xbox engineering lead Eden Marie, the new update makes big changes to one of the console’s best features.

In a series of tweets previewing the update, Marie points out that you can now group your games by titles that support Quick Resume.

Likewise, the upcoming update will let you know if the game you’re currently running supports the feature in the first place.

“Alpha and Alpha Skip Ahead Insiders: in case you were wondering why I shared that tip on reordering groups!” reads an Eden Marie tweet.

“See what’s stored in Quick Resume from your groups list (Guide, Home and My games & apps) and see if your running game supports Quick Resume in the Guide.”

In a follow-up tweet, the Xbox engineer confirms that fans can delete Quick Resume games that are no longer required.

“Also, delete your Quick Resume save for games you don’t care about anymore.”

Quick Resume is one of the Xbox Series X and S console’s best new features. It lets you instantly rejoin upwards of six previously played games.

However, as I pointed out in my Xbox Series X review, not all games support the feature. Furthermore, there’s no way of knowing which games support the feature or not, other than trial and error.

The upcoming Xbox update improves Quick Resume functionality by removing any doubt.

In other Xbox news, Microsoft has started sending out invites to the next stage in its Xbox Cloud Gaming beta program.

Starting from today (April 20), select Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will be selected to join the beta.

The beta makes it possible to stream Xbox games in the cloud on iPhones, iPads and Windows 10 PCs.

If you want to get an invite and try the service for yourself, then you’ll need to live in one of the 22 supported countries.

This includes the United Kingdom, USA, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy and Spain. The full list of supported countries can be found by visiting the Microsoft website.

As Microsoft points out in the official announcement, you’ll also need to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Microsoft explains more: “Starting tomorrow, we’ll begin sending out invites to select Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to start testing the Xbox Cloud Gaming limited beta for Windows 10 PCs and Apple phones and tablets via web browsers.
