Do Not Disturb Feature Coming to Xbox One

  • Xbox One UI

Xbox One Alpha Insiders are now testing a new firmware that brings a couple of nifty features.

There are a few other changes expected to roll out to Xbox One users alongside this, including some new additions to the Guide menu relating to your achievements and the games you're playing. This is basically a handy list of achievements that are you are close to finishing on games, and you can filter the list by closest, most common, rarest, most common rare, and highest gamerscore to get the best possible look at your progress on a game.

We're also getting Mini Game Hubs, which allow access to content from recently played games from a Game Hub without needing to exit whatever game you are playing. These Mini Game Hubs contain the same content seen in regular hubs, such as Achievements, friend activity and so on. You'll soon be able to see a peek of the most recent comment on community posts, with comments rearranged to place those that are most recent at the top. In addition to shutting down the console after one or six hours of inactivity, you will be able to select options for two, three, four and five hours. Next up is a do not disturb mode that will "suppress" notifications and tells your friends list you don't want to be bothered, according to a post on Xbox Wire.

The feature is coming to Xbox Insider members as of now and will be coming to all other users in the near future.
