Xbox May 2021 update brings Quick Resume improvements and more


Microsoft has released the May update for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, bringing several improvements to the system software.

The update includes improvements to Quick Resume with faster response time and better organization. It also includes the ability to get passthrough audio so that users can get the best experience from the sound using external hardware. Finally, improvements to the Family Settings were made, giving parents control over which games kids can play on their Xbox consoles.

Here is a summary of the new features:
  • Quick Resume is getting even better with improved reliability, faster load times, and a new group that organizes your Quick Resume games in one place.
  • Passthrough audio gives your media apps the best possible listening experience with your external sound system.
  • Starting this month, you can approve multiplayer games for your kids by specific title – directly from the console or when using the Xbox Family Settings app on iOS and Android.

The update is now available to all Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S users.
