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

Well, pretty soon that won't be a problem with the new "do not disturb" feature that's coming to Xbox One. Now in the Alpha ring, the new system update comes with improvements to the Guide, and a key new feature: Do Not Disturb. Now there are one and six hour options, but Microsoft chose to add, two, three, four, and five hour options after reviewing feedback from users.

The update is rolling out today for folks who are in the Alpha ring of the Xbox Insider program, and there are further experimental updates coming as well. Maybe game defaults are next so we don't have to select things like manual transmissions in racing games or inverted Y-axis in every single title - a feature the Xbox 360 launched with over 12 years ago. The new feature will let you access content from the games you have recently played without leaving your current session. This is basically a handy list of achievements that are you are close to finishing on games, and you can filter the list by closest, most common, rarest, most common rare, and highest gamerscore to get the best possible look at your progress on a game. The community feed has been tweaked to make reading comments much easier, and the "Next Achievements" feature is now accessible in the Guide so you can "view and sort a cross-games list of upcoming Achievements". They are only enabled for a portion of the Xbox Insider audience members and are meant to gauge interest and collect feedback.
