Finally, You Don't Have To Listen To Your Friend's Breathing In New Xbox Voice Chat Update

Xbox practically brought online gaming to the console masses single-handedly with the reveal of Xbox Live, and ever since, we've been reaping the rewards.

Though flawed in a few ways, the advent of Xbox Live meant that gamers could play their favourite games with their friends without even having to be in the same room, a feature that we take for granted nowadays, and it changed gaming forever. The opportunity to voice chat with your pals, too, was a big part of Xbox Live's success, and brought a collaborative gaming experience into people's living rooms.

And finally, almost two decades after its launch, one of the worst parts of online gaming has seen a fix.

 

Xbox Introduces Noise Suppression In Voice Chat

My god, the mad lads actually did it.

Finally, a new update has been rolled out across the Xbox family of consoles that has introduced a new noise suppression feature to players who are perhaps among the loudest of the online gaming space.

The new feature has landed on Xbox Series X and S, and has given players a toggle in their party settings to activate and deactivate their background noise. So finally, if your pal in chat has their mic too close to their nose, or they're eating much too loud, you can finally get them to pack it in without forcing them to mute their mic entirely.

This is a feature we've been waiting on for a while, and chances are, it'll be making party chat a whole lot less irritating in the future.

Xbox Introduces Cloud Gameplay From Screenshots

Along with the update to Xbox party chat, a new feature has come to PC and mobile that is incredibly innovative.

For some select games, like Forza Horizon 5, players watching a clip or viewing a screenshot of a moment in-game can jump straight into the game via the cloud in their browser, and play the exact moment the clip or image depicts.

It's a big deal that exemplifies just how powerful cloud gaming is, and does wonders for making Xbox the console family for the casual gamer. This update brings two fantastic features that certainly won't go underappreciated.
