Xbox March Update Adds New Headset And Backward Compatible Settings
Microsoft looks to be giving Xbox players a suite of new headset customization options and backward compatibility settings for the upcoming Xbox March update. Releasing on March 16, the update preps the Xbox Accessories App for the upcoming arrival of the new Xbox Wireless Headset and adds in some significant toggle settings for backward compatible games.
As revealed during a recent Xbox Wire post, the Xbox March update adds in some extra audio controls that will allow users to fine-tune their audio experience. These settings include bass boost, equalizer, auto-mute sensitivity, mic monitoring, and the brightness of the mic’s mute light. Additionally, wireless updates that can trickle out from the console will keep the Xbox Wireless Headset completely updated with all the latest features.
As for the new backward compatible settings, Microsoft will be adding in an FPS Boost toggle option that will work on backward compatible games. An Auto HDR feature will also be implemented in the Xbox March update. Both these toggle settings can be accessed in the game’s manage settings, and once the game is restarted these settings will be applied. According to Microsoft, in order to verify the settings the user can press the Xbox button and check the indicators underneath the clock.
As mentioned, these new features will be implemented in the Xbox March update arriving on March 16, 2021.
