Xbox One rolls out FastStart feature to speed up downloads

Xbox One rolls out FastStart feature to speed up downloads

Microsoft is rolling out an update for Xbox users that includes a feature called FastStart, which is created to get users playing games more quickly once they buy them - up to two times as fast as they have been up to this point. All players have to do is simply click download on selected titles, with the system doing the rest, so it seems like FastStart will be fairly easy to use. You can learn more about FastStart here.

Both Xbox and PlayStation include similar features which allow users to play your game when a certain amount of the game has been downloaded - in Xbox's case, it's called "ready to start".

Originally announced at E3, FastStart is a feature which allows you to quickly start playing the games you've just downloaded. We knew that Happy Wars (Xbox 360) would be removed from the store on June 14th, but accompanying it is another Xbox Live Arcade game, an Xbox 360 Game on Demand, and an Xbox One title.

"You can also assign custom names to each Group, organize and order them, and add individual Groups to Home", Hyrb wrote. You won't have to do anything extra to make it work besides updating to the latest version of the Xbox software.

UI navigation has been enhanced with the ability to invoke the search dialog (even from the Dashboard) by pressing the Y button on your controller.

New leaderboards will show which viewers who have contributed to a streamer's channel the most.

What's essentially FOLDERS have been added to the Xbox One universe.

It's also possible that if your connection slows down while FastStart is still downloading a game in the background, you'll need to wait for the download speed to pick back up before you can continue playing.

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