Xbox One May Update Adds Discord, Video Optimization, and Tons More

The company has spent the last month testing its update, and now it is ready to give everyone support for a higher refresh rate, better button mapping, and easier video sharing. What you'll find more useful as an Xbox One owner is Discord support which allows you to find friends playing on Xbox through the application and display your status.

After much feedback from the community, Xbox's new updates for May go live today.

As previously announced, this update allows you to connect your Xbox Live account with your Discord account. After enabling permission, your accounts will be linked. The higher refresh rate means that, if you have a display that supports it, you'll now be able to take advantage of the smoother gameplay and reduced reaction times that come along with 120Hz capabilities. Starting from your Xbox One, open the Account Settings menu and select "Linked social accounts".

IDF: Rocket sirens in Golan were false alarm
According to Russia's Defense Ministry, Israel had used 28 warplanes in its Syria strikes and fired 70 missiles. Explosions were being reported by residents in communities in the Golan Heights on Thursday as sirens went off.

Starting from the Discord app on PC or on a mobile device, you will see an option to link your Xbox account with your Discord account through the Connections tab under User Settings.

The May Xbox One update is rolling out to everyone right now.

Thanks to this update, you can now trim clips directly from the Guide. We're adding a "Details" page where parents can easily find and manage all family settings on Xbox One. Enhancements to the Xbox One dashboard have been revamped for easier link to surround sound systems. This allows users to switch from one game to another easily. You can press the View button to change and reorder items on the Home screen, and in the Guide, pressing View will show you additional options. First off, Microsoft has modernized the Xbox Accessories app to make it easier to use and look at.
