Microsoft has released a new update for Xbox Series X, which brings a 4K dashboard, night mode and quick settings menu to the console.
Xbox announced the news in a new way Xbox Wire posts The three main contents included with this update are explained in detail. Before this update (now available to all Xbox Series X users), the console’s dashboard was not really 4K, but instead upgraded from 1080p resolution to 4K. The dashboard is now rendered in native 4K resolution, which means that those with a 4K TV or monitor should notice a clearer image when browsing the Series X dashboard menu.
“You can experience 4K while browsing the homepage, my games and apps, guides, and many other experiences,” the Xbox Wire post wrote. “UI elements on the screen, such as game art and buttons, will improve clarity and improve text readability.”
This new update also adds night mode to the Series X console. This mode can adjust the light source on the screen to help keep a dark room dark (for example at night), and it can also be used as a more accessible mode for those who are sensitive to light. You can dim and customize the light from the display, the light from the Xbox button lit by the controller, and even the power light of the console itself.
A customizable blue light filter has also been added, and Xbox says this feature “will not affect performance, screenshots, or game editing.” You can arrange for the night mode of the console to be activated at any time, and it can even be synchronized with your local sunrise and sunset times.
To access night mode, go to settings, then accessibility, then night mode. Or, you can go to “Settings”, “TV and Display Options” and “Night Mode.”
The last new feature that this update adds to the X-series console is the quick setup menu.
“This allows you to quickly switch accessibility features without leaving the game or application,” the Xbox Wire post reads. “If you share a console with other people with different accessibility needs, this is also a great benefit for the family. You can use quick settings to turn features on or off, depending on the user currently using the console. This means that everyone in the family can easily convert the settings into their tailored experience.”
