The PlayStation 4 has had the ability for players to appear offline for some time now. This hasn’t been the case on Xbox One. If you’re connected to the internet, folks can see you and hit you up. The Xbox One is getting a number of new additions soon, and one of them is a “do not disturb” feature. Finally, players can enjoy playing games in peace.Selecting “do not disturb” prevents other players from sending you messages, party invites, or any other notification while you’re online. You will of course still receive all of these notifications; you just won’t see them pop up on the screen while you’re playing. Anyone who is signed up to the Xbox Insider beta can try the feature out right now. Users not in the beta should get the feature sometime in the near future.Another neat feature coming to the Guide is “Next Achievement.” Now, users will get to view and sort a cross-game list of upcoming achievements. You can see which achievements you’re closest to getting and quickly jump into a game to nab them. Mini Game Hubs will be available right in the Guide, allowing you to see friends who are currently playing, upcoming achievements, group posts, and more. You can see the full list of new features over on Xbox.com.On PS4, I almost always have it set to “offline,” so it’ll be nice to finally have this type of feature on Xbox One. It’s not that I don’t want to interact with others, but it always seems folks want to hit me up when I’m in the middle of a boss fight or big narrative scene. I’m sure users with a lot of people on their friends list will appreciate the “do not disturb” feature as well.
