So I bought a Kinect, and just dance, do I need to plug it to the wall directly or is it ok to use it with a surge protector (I’m using an Xbox One X)

As Xbox Insiders, your feedback is incredibly valuable to help us test and refine features to ensure we’re delivering the best experiences possible on Xbox. In preparation for the October 2019 Xbox Update, we’re excited to share some more details on new features and improvements that will become available for you to check out soon.

Starting last week, Insiders in the Alpha Skip-Ahead and Alpha rings began to see a few of the below features on their Xbox One consoles. Xbox Insiders in Beta, Delta, and Omega Preview rings will receive these features in the coming weeks, in the lead up to our broader release.

Here’s a rundown on what’s new in 1910:

Wish List Notifications

We’re so happy to see everyone enjoying the Wish List feature on the Microsoft Store! The October update is adding more to this feature, starting with notifications that alert users when an item in their Wish List has a price discount. We know how exciting it is when a game you want goes on sale. The new Wish List notifications will make sure you never miss a great deal.

Mixer Viewing Improvements

Mixer and Xbox One are integrating further with the 1910 update. We’ve built a full Mixer viewing experience right into the dashboard, with a focus on speed and simplicity. Viewers will no longer have to navigate to a separate app to enjoy their favorite streamers. Getting to the Mixer content you want to watch has never been easier!

Recent Players Improvements

We listened to your feedback regarding the popular Recent Players feature, and its frequent use with large-scale multiplayer games. We’ve made significant improvements to the Recent Players experience. The service is now more reliable and allows you to connect with other gamers instantly. You can now more quickly and easily engage with your Recent Players, whether you are sending a message, inviting players to a party, or adding them to your Friends List.

More Flexible Capture Settings

We heard your feedback on wanting more control over your game capture experience. The “Allow game captures” setting now has multiple options, giving you a choice of what types of captures can be taken. You may now select between ‘”Captures by me,” “Captures by me or games,” or “Don’t capture.”

Recommend a Game Pass Title

In 2017, we announced Xbox Game Pass. Since that time, we’ve seen an incredible turnout of users joining the service that brings you unlimited access to over 100 titles and counting! If you’ve ever found yourself recommending these spectacular games to your friends, with the 1910 update, Game Pass users will have the option to do so directly from their Xbox One console. Discover your next favorite game and bring your friends along for the ride in October.

Under-the-Hood Game Update Improvements

With 1910, players can jump into their favorite games even faster! We’ve added improvements, based on your feedback, to background game updates, resulting in players encountering the “update required” screen less frequently upon launching a title.

subset of users may also see other experimental features that are not listed here. These features are only enabled for a portion of the Xbox Insider audience to gauge interest and collect feedback. Your participation in the Xbox Insider Program helps us improve the work-in-progress content and features coming to Xbox One.

As always, Team Xbox thanks you all your valuable input and participation in the Insider program. We’ll have additional announcements very soon on more exciting new features releasing first to Xbox Insiders, so stay tuned for more information.

So besides Halo next fall, what is the next big game for Xbox now that Gears has landed? Mean exclusives of course. Ori?
Launch of Scarlett. Hopefully they have a large offering of games to show soon. I'm sure Forza will show its head, too.

I'm not sure what to think, this looks European with the Scania?

The main benefit to me is if I wanted to learn more about trucking in other countries if I was interested in living abroad. I have thought about that sometimes.
I was expecting you to say “I do it for a living, f*** that.” Lol.

Well, yeah it's funny to see these games when I do this IRL.

Actually, I'm not sure I could do this in a Simulator with a game pad and no steering wheel or physical dashboard. It would mess with me at first.

I'd also have to have a bigass coffee.

It would be weird as hell without a steering wheel.

Also major bad habit from driving is swearing at cars. I couldn't play this game around 'polite' company for long.

Microsoft is enabling Google’s Assistant to work with its Xbox One console. Much like the existing Alexa integration, Microsoft is allowing Google Assistant to launch games and apps, turn the console on and off, pause videos, and much more. You’ll need to use the Google Assistant app for iOS or Android or a device like Google’s Home with Assistant on it to control an Xbox One. Google Assistant won’t run on the Xbox One itself; instead, it will receive commands from other devices running Assistant.

Hey Google, mind if I call you "Kinect"?
