Team Xbox is excited to continue to provide new ways to make Xbox better, putting you at the center of attention as we refine the experience and deliver brand new features based on your feedback. This month’s update brings you the activity feed on the Xbox app for iOS and Android in the form of stories. You can create, share and view stories with your friends in the Xbox app, and add priority tags for your console gaming experiences with Quality of Service (QoS) Tagging.
Create, share and watch stories with the Xbox app for Android and iOS
Now in Australia and coming soon to more Xbox supported regions, your activity feed will be refreshed for the Xbox app. Stories allow you to show off your skills and keep up with your friends. You can share your favorite gaming moments, including game clips, screenshots and achievements, with your friends and the Xbox community. You can also reply to your friends’ stories with a message or quick reply.
The story channel is located directly on the Xbox app home screen. To create a story, click the + button on your gamertag in the stories channel and select the game clip, screenshot, or achievement you want to post to the gallery. Once selected, you will be taken to a story preview page where you can choose to add a caption to your post and then click the post button at the bottom right. The stories channel shows content from the last 72 hours, and anything you share will also be posted to your profile in your activity feed.
Add priority tags for your gaming experiences with Quality of Service (QoS) Tagging
Quality of Service (QoS) tagging is a new service for Xbox consoles and sets priority tags on latency-sensitive outbound network traffic such as party chat, console streaming, and multiplayer (in supported games). This helps protect your gaming experience from connectivity issues during times of congestion on supported networks.
In the Settings app under General, Network Settings, Advanced Settings you will see a new button for QoS Tagging Settings. Under QoS Tagging Settings, there are two options: DSCP Tagging Enabled and WMM Tagging Enabled. Learn more about setting options and advanced network settings for your Xbox.
