Microsoft is working on a new Careers system for Xbox Achievements

"It appears that players using this new Career system will be able to obtain levels, and even prestige ranks, obtaining rewards such as loot crates which come with cosmetic items for the new Avatars system". This way, you can easily see which Achievements you're closest to and quickly launch the game to achieve them. This is basically a handy list of achievements that are you are close to finishing on games, and you can filter the list by closest, most common, rarest, most common rare, and highest gamerscore to get the best possible look at your progress on a game.

A Preview alpha build is now available for download for some players who take part in the Insiders Program, which allows players to test out new system and games features before they go live to all other players.

Also in the Guide will be new Mini Game Hubs, giving you access to content for games you've recently played without having to visit a whole new page. "We'll be including a "Do not disturb" online status, which will suppress notifications and let your friends know that you're not available for another game or activity right now", said Microsoft.


The update will also add a "Do Not Disturb" online status, to let friends know you're now unavailable, while the community feed has also been tweaked to make it easier to view.

Quality of life improvement for comments. You'll also be able to see who has liked your comments. Additional inactivity shutdown options are also being added, letting users determine whether the Xbox One should shut down at two, three, four, or five hours, with the one or six options sticking around too.

Some users might find themselves testing additional experimental features.
