Xbox One update for July focuses on Achievements

Inside the July software update for Xbox One you’ll find more than your fair share of updates surrounding Achievements. This update will be working with Snap Mode for Achievements, first and foremost, and will be bringing the pinning of Achievements while you’ve got them pinned for easy access. Following one Achievement has never been so easy to stare at.

Inside the July update for Xbox One you’ll also find the ability to Doublt-tap to Snap. This allows you to double-tap the Xbox Button on your Xbox Controller to bring up the Snap Center. Double-tapping the Xbox Button also closes a snap for easy shutdown.

Inside the Achievements snap mode you’ll find the ability to "Get Help" as well. This "Get Help" mode does a web search for tips and hints from Bing - good luck!

Voice modes will be spread across the planet. While we’ve seen access to a number of different languages with the Xbox One’s access to Kinect before, now people all around the world will be able to choose the voice control response they like.

This week Microsoft also notes that - in the future - they’ll be exploring digital bundles. This means that instead of all software being restricted to single purchases, a group might be able to bundle several games together in the Xbox digital store. "More flexible combinations of game titles and game content" will be arriving sooner than later.
