A new Xbox One update is out now for everyone, and it adds a number of notable features and improvements. Starting off, the May Xbox One update introduces the ability to link your Discord account with your Xbox account to chat with friends and see what they are up to.

The new Xbox One update also introduces support for 120Hz refresh rate for 1080p and 1440p output resolutions on Xbox One S and Xbox One X. Of course, you need a monitor or TV that supports 120Hz for this, but it's a nice option to have if you're after it. "High refresh rate support can provide a smoother gaming experience and lower latency on some displays, and games may benefit from reduced tearing and stuttering via 120Hz output," Microsoft said.


Also new with the update is the ability to trim Game Capture videos from within the Guide. Previously, you had to boot up Upload Studio, and that could take a little while. The new update also includes Family Settings improvements in the form of a "Details" page that collects all the relevant family settings.

Additionally, today's Xbox One update changes some button commands; the "View" button on the Home screen can now be used to re-order group items and more. Additionally, capture options will now display when you press the "View" button on the Guide's main tab. Lastly, the May update changes the Xbox Accessories App to "make it easier to navigate, and to look and feel more consistent with the rest of the Xbox One dashboard."
