In the blog post, Roberts illustrates how “it’s understandable that gamers may do some homework before committing to a title.”

This includes reading reviews, watching gameplays, and looking up technical and support features. A new ‘languages’ label will allow users to scroll through different languages supported by the game. As of right now, this feature supports 27 languages with more to be added in the future.

Microsoft further explained how this update will work saying, “With this update, when you log into the Microsoft Store on Xbox or the Xbox Game Pass app, you can easily see which languages a game supports, making it easier to decide if you’d like to purchase or play that title.”

Additionally, with this update, users can select the languages for in-game audio and subtitles. Microsoft has made this selection even more convenient, showing default language preferences first.

Future of Xbox

Microsoft feels that this update is “an important step toward our goal of making you and your friends feel at home when you play on Xbox.”  

Recently, Xbox also rolled out its March update. It highlights the main features, namely compatibility with Xbox’s new wireless headset, boost to HDR and FPS settings of backward compatible games, the return of achievements, and a new way to manage your subscriptions.
