Xbox One’s July update lets you Snap Achievements next to gameplay

Microsoft’s impending Xbox One update for July adds a host of new features that makes tracking your precious achievements even easier. Soon, you’ll be able to take advantage of the console’s Snap Mode to keep a window of your current game’s Achievements open at the side of your screen while you play. They’re listed in order of how close you are to pulling them off, but you can also pin any specific Achievements that you happen to be hunting to the top of the list. Then, if you need a little help, it’s easy to select an Achievement and immediately bring up a Bing search for the relevant guides and tips videos.

Other features coming with the update include greater flexibility in spoken language options for voice control, the ability to “Like” DVR game clips and activity feed items on SmartGlass, and improved options for publishers looking to release digital bundles and disc compilations.

You can check out all the details here and expect the update to hit your console early next month.
