Microsoft is gearing up for the Xbox spring update, that is currently rolling out to users on the Xbox Insider alpha ring. The most important bit about this update is that it will bring 1440p support for video output on the Xbox. It’s not 4K, but it’s one of the more popular resolutions used by PC gamers. The update brings 1440p support to the Xbox One S and Xbox One X, and you will of course need 2K resolution support on the TV or monitor you’re using.
The new update will add features to Microsoft’s Mixer service, which competes with Twitch.
Further, the new update will add features to Microsoft’s Mixer service, which competes with Twitch. The company started the service in 2016, rebranding its new acquisition Beam. With the new update, users will be able to share their Xbox controller with those watching their stream on Mixer. That includes a controller attached to a PC or an onscreen virtual gamepad.
Broadcasts on Mixer will also be paused if you switch games in between streams. You can also start broadcasts from anywhere on its Xbox One UI. There are some other software changes available as well, which you can find in the post here.
