Xbox One Fall 2017 Update launching for everyone

The new Xbox One update is now rolling out and basically gets you read for Xbox One X, letting you transfer your games and get 4K stuff ahead of launch.

The newly redesigned Game Hub Welcome tab now features a summary of all the great content around the game on one page. The Community feed has been altered to fit more content, and your personal Activity feed has new privacy settings to specify who can and can't see your content. Right-to-left languages, specifically Arabic and Hebrew, are now available as language options in the console settings.

The highly anticipated Xbox One X will launch on November 7 with the Xbox One Fall Update installed, so gamers who are buying the console or upgrading to it should also expect to see these changes to the software.

Which OG Xbox game would you most like to play on your Xbox 360? The new dashboard allows an easy transfer of games to external drives, home network or another console. Pins - the ability to add tiles of games and apps to your homepage - have been around for a long time, but I've never bothered to use them until now.

This week's Xbox One sale will be available until Tuesday, Oct. 24, 6 a.m. EDT. In the previous version, sometimes it was hard to find what you were looking for but now with the blocks, you can select content, games or apps whichever you want.

Microsoft has rolled out this year's Xbox One Fall Update, providing gamers with more ways of customizing their console. You can also download 4K content for existing games on an Xbox One, so you will hit the ground running after launching the Xbox One X. GameDVR has been updated to support more than 4K/HDR screenshots and game clips.

Are you looking forward to the Xbox One fall update?
