You can now change installation locations of the games and apps you download onto your system, from the options available to you. The Xbox Game Bar will now allow to share contents like links and captures directly, from a new widget that is now a part of it. The “Party Chat” has also received some new updates like Noise Suppression for Chats on Xbox One and Windows 11/10 PCs. That is in addition to the new Social tab, which can be used to kickstart a Party via the Xbox App. You can learn more about the new features coming via the September Update on the official blogpost.
