Microsoft is adding an online status so friends will see you’re in do not disturb mode and won’t be able to hassle you with party chat invites or messages.

Alongside the new mode, Microsoft is also adding mini game hubs to the Xbox One dashboard.

Rather than take the entire service down for maintenance and fixes, Microsoft updates the servers that power multiplayer gaming and more in real-time.
