May Xbox update is making Quick Resume better with improved reliability, faster load times, and a new group that organizes Quick Resume supported games in one folder.

One of the best next-gen features on Xbox Series X|S right now is Quick Resume, which allows you to seamlessly switch between multiple games and resume gameplay instantly right from where you last left off.

The feature is getting even better with improved reliability, faster load times, and a new group that organizes Quick Resume games in one place. 

Another neat little addition is Passthrough audio, which lets audio decoding from media apps on your compatible HDMI devices bypass the console for the highest-quality listening experience with your external sound system. 

Additionally, the update brings an option to approve multiplayer games for kids by specific title - directly from the console or when using the Xbox Family Settings app on iOS and Android.
