Microsoft is rolling out the Xbox dashboard update for April starting today. That update improves the way games are downloaded for the company’s various game consoles.
Download the Xbox update available
From now on, you can move a game to the background with a simple push of a button. Download speeds can thus be increased. When you play a game while downloading an update or completely different game, downloads in the background are severely limited.
The new suspend functionality can be combined with the option Quick Resume on Xbox Series X and S. This allows you to pause a game temporarily, download the content you want to download, and then restart the game. This is a slightly more elegant solution than having to manually shut down a game for faster downloads.
The Xbox mobile app is also being updated. You can download that app for Android and iOS. The update brings the achievements back to the application, after Microsoft had previously removed them. Everyone has to both updates by the end of the month. So if you wonder where the dashboard update will be for this period: within two weeks you really should have received it on your console.
