The Xbox Series X and S have affects a lot of quality of life that look small on paper but vastly improve the gaming experience in practice. One of them is Quick Resume, which makes it easy to switch between multiple games at once, and a new update makes it even more robust.
Currently, Quick Resume lets you keep a number of games running in the background. For example when you are in the middle of it Halo: Infinite‘s campaign and want to jump into a quick lap Darkest dungeonyou can step back, load the new game and then select Halo: Infinite You can always pick up where you left off without having to restart the game.
But it’s far from perfect. There’s no easy way to track when a new game starts an older one in Quick Resume, or choose which game to close. Microsoft’s latest Series X/S update adds a new feature called “Pin to Quick Resume” to fix this problem. You can flag up to two games to ensure they stay in Fast Forward. For me that would be up to date dying light 2 and FAR: Changing tides (which is wonderful, by the way).
This is particularly useful with in the context of Game Pass, where I hop in and out of several new games every week just to try them out. While not every game supports this feature, it’s basically an auto-save status for those that do and as with Things like smart deliveryit turned out really nice.
The March update that brings Quick Resume pins to Xbox Series X/S also added an audio setup tool to automatically optimize your sound settings and now allows you to remap the release button on the Xbox controller . Now if only you could use the share button to take screenshots of the home menu.
