Xbox One adds do not disturb mode for distraction-free gaming

New “Career” System Would Bring Loot Boxes to Xbox Live — Report

Selecting the "Do Not Disturb" option will change your online status and thus avoid being distracted by the notifications that appear on the screen.

A Preview alpha build is now available for download for some players who take part in the Insiders Program, which allows players to test out new system and games features before they go live to all other players. You'll get a quick look at the Achievements you are close to getting across all of your games and can even instantly launch them. You can also sort your Achievements by how rare they are.

This is a relatively minor, but very welcome, addition to the service, and is probably the most noteworthy addition on top of the mini game hubs and granular options being added to the inactivity shutdown menu. With this feature, you'll be able to access content for the games you've played recently from a Game Hub without ever having to leave the current game you're playing. Mini Game Hubs allow you to easily see friends who are now playing, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group posts, and more. It will show you need-to-know information without leaving your game such as online friends, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group requests, and more. Next up is a do not disturb mode that will "suppress" notifications and tells your friends list you don't want to be bothered, according to a post on Xbox Wire.

We're tweaking the community feed to make it easier to view comments. You'll also be able to see who has liked your comments.
