Following the launch of Clubs and Looking for Group on Xbox Live last month, Microsoft is back once again with some pretty exciting news and has announced the latest update coming to Xbox One Preview, delivering some new features as well as other enhancements.

The new Xbox One Preview Update features:

  • Arena on Xbox Live - Gamers will get to compete in daily Killer Instinct tournaments across Xbox One and the Xbox app (beta) on Windows 10 PC

  • New Looking for Group (LFG) Features - The ability to create LFG posts for future gaming sessions up to seven days in advance. Plus you can now create LFG posts directly in a Club and control who sees them
  • Group Messaging on Xbox Live - Add people to the group and dynamically change the conversation topic. (Group Messaging will soon work across the Xbox app (beta) on iOS and Android)
The new Xbox One Preview Update is now rolling out as a free update on Xbox One and the Xbox app (beta) to those registered in the Preview program.
