The Xbox One is set to get a new "Do Not Disturb" feature that'll tell players' friends that they're far too busy to deal with their crap right now. The latest Xbox One system update will affect how you interact with your games, your friends, and more. Easily see which Achievements you are closest to, and quickly launch the game to obtain them.

A miniaturised version of Game Hubs has been added to the Guide. The update is only available in the Alpha ring of the Xbox Insider program for now, but it will be coming to regular users outside of the Xbox Insider program in the coming months once it goes through all the required testing.

We're also getting Mini Game Hubs, which allow access to content from recently played games from a Game Hub without needing to exit whatever game you are playing.

Sometimes all you want to do is avoid all distractions and focus entirely on your game. You'll soon be able to see a peek of the most recent comments on community posts while viewing the activity in full screen.

AAA: Gas prices up in RI, Mass. due to cold weather
West Texas Intermediate crude settled at a four-year high above $62 a barrel last week as global supply levels tightened. It is not clear whether or not these price hikes have anything to do with the increase to the liquid fuel tax.

Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Ring will be the first ones to check out the upcoming features in the latest Xbox One system update.

Additional inactivity shutdown options are being added to the Power mode & startup menu. More granularity for auto-shutdown timing is en route as well, with options that will turn the console off after two, three, four and five hours. They are only enabled for a portion of the Xbox Insider audience members and are meant to gauge interest and collect feedback.

We are aware of the Guide and Home crashing and determined the root cause.
