Check out the full list of what's headed our way at Major Nelson's blog.

Owners of the Xbox One who miss playing some of their old games on their Xbox 360 console may want to look into the updated backward compatibility program catalog, as a new set of games were added earlier this week.

"We were told that the Xbox One S is due for an April release window by Microsoft and its distributor". There's even improvements coming Xbox Live clubs and more.

By providing end-to-end integration at the platform level, customers can more easily customize their apps, capture behavioral data within web and mobile apps, and glean insights from across Adobe and Microsoft services as well as any platforms that support the data model.

When you create an LFG post, as the owner you will be able to see new vetting cards that include hero stats from gamers interested in joining your party. This means you can pick a game that is cheaper, such as the already on sale Battlefield 1, which is only $39.99 this week, or you can get one all the way up to $59.99. Microsoft said this feature will take longer to come out to the public to ensure it's working as intended. In your Activity Feed, you can hide specific posts, pin posts to the top, and filter by several things (friends, games, or clubs).

It Will also leverage HEVC for encoding 2160p, 60 frame-per-second (FPS) video for game DVR and streaming. Under the My Games and Apps section, where all of your Xbox One software ends up, you may now sort by platform. Users can separate their Xbox 360 titles from their Xbox One titles, which is a handy and necessary feature for the clutter-frightened.

In the Settings, we're adding the ability to select Kinect auto-zoom for Beam and Twitch broadcasts, as well as for the Skype app. You'll also be able to search Looking for Group posts from the Achievements tab, so you can find posts related to the Achievement you're trying to finish.

All of this only touches upon what's coming, rolling out to "select insiders" in the coming weeks.
