Re-arrange Pins on Home: Rearrange individual pins and view them offline.
Updating Activity Feed in Xbox One: Will inform users when there are new items in their feed.
Joinable Twitch Broadcasts: Game Hubs as well as the game tile make it easier to watch a friend’s broadcast.
Improvements to Suggested Friends: New Friend Suggestions area in Community and the Friends list in the Guide on Xbox One.
Hide games from ‘ready-to-install’ list: The ability to hide content such as betas, trials, games, and apps users no longer wish to install.

DeluxeHazard The ability to see who is in an Xbox Live party is what I really want to have.


This also is what I want, so I can see if its worth joining the party with certain people in it.


Telling me you can't see who's in a party on xbox anymore???
