"Prior to today’s update, the Xbox Series X dashboard, Guide, and other menus were upscaled from 1080p to 4K. We know players with an eye for detail and an appreciation for 4K wanted a crisp experience even when navigating the dashboard. We heard your feedback and started testing increased resolution for the dashboard," according to Xbox.
"Players with an Xbox Series X connected to a 4K display will see the dashboard natively rendered in 4K. You can experience 4K while browsing the Home, My Games & Apps, Guide, and many other experiences. UI elements on the screen, such as game art and buttons, will have increased sharpness and improved text readability," added Xbox.
The gaming console maker has also introduced night mode to Xbox Series X. Night mode is a suite of settings that adjusts light sources to help keep rooms dark at night and support gamers who are sensitive to light. The setting allows to dim and customize the light from the connected display, the power button on the controller, and the power light on the console.
For additional eye protection Xbox has added a customizable blue light filter to the display. This is exclusive for Xbox Series X consoles. "If you’re a movie fan, you can now enjoy theater-like total darkness while watching your favorite films!" claims Xbox. To activate the night mode, go to Settings > Accessibility > Night mode or Settings > TV & display options > Night mode.
Additionally, the Xbox Series X update brings quick settings. This will allow users to quickly access and customize accessibility settings by adding the Quick Settings menu to the Xbox Guide. This new feature also helps gamers quickly toggle accessibility features without leaving the game or app.click here!
