Hate waiting for games to download?
The good news is that just like broadband killed dial-up, Microsoft has introduced a new feature called FastStart that will drastically reduce the amount of time it takes to start a new digital game you've just bought. The update will include "FastStart", which is a feature created to address one of the biggest frustrations of modern gaming: Being forced to wait for your titles to download before you can play them. You can learn more about FastStart here.
First off, FastStart has been enabled in the English-language versions of some Xbox Game Pass titles. The feature works by prioritizing the download of critical game files to let you start playing as fast as possible.

Announced at E3 2018, FastStart is part of Microsoft's July platform update that brings a number of small - but impactful - updates to the console. Now pressing the Y button anywhere in the dashboard will bring up the search dialog, allowing you to easily launch your content, sift through Settings, or find products in the Store.
In time for the Xbox One release, Scavenger Studios has added language localisations to the game, including French, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Russian, Japanese, and Korean. In addition to an overall quality of life update for the service, improving stability, mouse and keyboard and multi-touch support have been added to to Mixer's Share Controller.
New leaderboards will show which viewers who have contributed to a streamer's channel the most. While in this mode game audio is muted, making it ideal for talking to your audience while switching from game to game or setting up before you start playing.
