Xbox One rolls out FastStart feature to speed up downloads

How to clean up Xbox One add-ons for more free space

A month later, the service has been made available with the latest Xbox One update.

According to Xbox, the point of FastStart is to give you the information you need to get to the game immediately, and not get stuck on the main menu while you wait for the download to finish. You can find out which games FastStart works with here.

FastStart is a new innovation from our Xbox Platform team that allows you to jump into your games twice as fast and play after downloading just a fraction of it. FastStart works by identifying which files are needed to begin playing and prioritizes the download of those files first, enabling you to quickly jump into full-fidelity gameplay while the remainder of your title downloads in the background.

President Trump reportedly asked about possibility of invading Venezuela
For his part, trump's advisors tried to explain to the President why military intervention in Venezuela may adversely affect US. Santos, a big backer of US attempts to isolate Maduro, said an invasion would have zero support in the region.


The Xbox One update has many more features, including more search options, mixed share controller improvements, and full screen broadcasting on Mixer.

The catch is that the feature is only available right now on certain English-language titles in the Game Pass catalog. There's also a mechanic that allows you to track other players in order to hunt them down and take them out.

There are some more minor improvements as well. You can group together whatever you'd like, assign custom names, reorganize your groups, and assign them to Home.

Controversial rapper Chris Brown arrested for battery after Florida show
In 2016, Brown was arrested after an hours-long police standoff when a woman claimed the singer threatened her with a gun. Brown, who is father to 4-year-old daughter Royalty with Nia Guzman, has had recent run-ins with the law over the years.


As an added bonus, Groups will be tied to your Xbox Live account and will automatically sync across multiple Xbox One consoles. Hitting Y while on the Dashboard will immediately bring up the search dialog. We've started you off with a Group that should look very familiar - your Pins!

In addition, Microsoft has enabled multi-touch support for touch-ready devices, which opens the gates for multiple controls to be used at the same time.

The July Xbox update launches later today. Full mouse and keyboard support has been introduced for PC players while using Share Controller, as well as Share Controller Key Bindings.

Michael Cohen Says His Loyalty Is To His Family And Country
