Following an info-rich X018 event with a ton of announcements, we’re releasing some new Xbox One features that start rolling out today. The November 2018 Xbox Update adds new ways to play some of your favorite games with mouse and keyboard support, more console interaction with Xbox Skill updates, listen to your favorite songs with the new Amazon Music app, and the ability to find your games faster than ever via improved Search. Here’s a rundown of what’s new:

Mouse and Keyboard Support for Xbox One

As revealed by Phil Spencer on the September episode of Inside Xbox, the November update brings mouse and keyboard support to Xbox One! With support for mouse and keyboard, developers can now choose to add mouse and keyboard support for their games on Xbox One. This enables both developers and players with more choice on how they want to play.

Announced at X018, Fortnite will be one of the first titles to support mouse and keyboard input, matchmaking players using the same input together with one another to ensure a fair and fun experience for everyone. Fortnite’s support for keyboard and mouse launches alongside previously announced Warframe via today’s update, with Bomber Crew, Deep Rock Galactic, Strange Brigade, Vermintide 2, War Thunder and X-Morph Defense adding support in November, and Children of Morta, DayZ, Minion Master, Moonlighter, Vigor, Warface, and Wargroove adding support in the future.

Additionally, we’re partnering with Razer to offer gamers a premiere mouse and keyboard experience through an all new Razer-created ‘Designed for Xbox’ mouse and keyboard. Built from the ground up for gaming on Xbox One and Windows 10, it will come equipped with a dedicated Xbox key, and support for the new Xbox Dynamic Lighting capability – enabling immersive game-controlled lighting effects.

Try out mouse and keyboard in some of your favorite games today and be sure to tune into CES in January to learn more about the ‘Designed for Xbox’ mouse and keyboard coming from Razer.

Xbox Skill for Cortana and Alexa Updates

Launched in the U.S. last month, the Xbox Skill for Cortana and Alexa allows gamers to get more done using just their voice. This feature will continue to grow and improve over time, based on fan feedback. Coming this week, we have the first set of updates:

*Alexa Beta for the U.K. (EN-GB): The Xbox Skill for Alexa is now in Beta for all Xbox gamers in the U.K. with the addition of U.K. English voice recognition. To get started with Alexa, just say, “Alexa, open Xbox.”

*Cortana improvements: In the U.S, the Xbox Skill for Cortana becomes easier to use. Cortana will automatically discover and pair your Xbox, so there’s no need to login. Just say “Hey Cortana, pair my Xbox” to any Cortana device (mobile phone or Harmon Kardon Invoke speaker). Try your favorite commands, like “Hey Cortana, start Netflix” or “Hey Cortana, pause my Xbox.” Get started with the latest Cortana on Android or Cortana on iOS app this week.

*New Commands added: In response to fan feedback, we’re adding a few new commands to both the Cortana and Alexa skill. Now, you have the ability to fully close a game or app via “Quit [game or app name]” or use your assistant as a controller with our new navigation mode. This lets you use your voice to hit the “A” button or navigate around your console (e.g. up, down, left, right, A button, B button). Just say “Start navigation mode” or “Press [button name]” to try it out!

 Amazon Music app comes to Xbox One

Amazon Music is launching a brand-new app for Xbox One in the U.S. on Nov. 14th, with availability in more countries coming soon. The Amazon Music app for Xbox enables Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers to stream more than 50 million songs and thousands of playlists and stations through their Xbox One family of devices. Prime members can also use the app to stream more than two million songs and hundreds of playlists and stations at no additional cost to their membership with Prime Music. Download the new Amazon Music app from the Store today!

Search Expansion

We’re expanding search to include results from Xbox Assist and games you have “Ready to Install” or currently own as part of your memberships, including Xbox Game Pass, EA Access, and more! This makes it easier than ever to find the game you are looking for and start playing.

These updates are available because of the Xbox Insiders who have helped shape these features, so big thanks to all of you for your valuable input. If you’d like to help create the future of Xbox and get access to early features, download the Xbox Insider Hub app on your Xbox One or Windows 10 PC today. You can also visit the Xbox Insider Blog here for the latest release notes and to learn more. Enjoy the November 2018 Xbox Update and happy gaming!

Will Tuttle, Xbox Wire Editor in Chief, shared a recap of the latest episode of Inside Xbox. Read or watch the full VOD below:

Today, at a special episode of Inside Xbox broadcast directly from Great Britain at the Goodwood House, we gave fans a closer look at the highly anticipated Xbox One racing game Forza Horizon 4, talked to the creative talent behind Fortnite Battle Royale, revealed new titles coming soon to Xbox Game Pass like Wolfenstein: The New Order and Metro 2033 Redux, revealed mouse and keyboard support for Xbox One, and much more.

With awesome titles like Wolfenstein: The Order, Metro 2033 Redux, LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures, and Forza Horizon 4, this month’s group of titles is as great as any we’ve seen enter the program.

Talking with Playground Games’ Ralph Fulton

Graeme sat down with Ralph Fulton from Playground Games to talk about the launch of Forza Horizon 4, the reaction to the gameplay demo (available now) and sharing a few details about what the near future holds for fans for both Forza and Playground Games who joined the Microsoft family earlier this year.

Forza Horizon 4 Bond Car Reveals

Speaking of Playground Games, we had even more news to share on Forza Horizon 4 which is launching with some day one DLC and it’s a love letter to 007. With 10 classic James Bond cars on the way, and even some of the weirder ones, the only thing we’ll be missing is a properly shaken and stirred martini to make us feel like the super spy himself.

Fortnite Interview and Xbox One S Fornite Battle Royale Bundle

Getting ready to celebrate the first birthday of Fortnite Battle Royale, our very own Larry Hryb sat down with Nathan Mooney from Epic Games to look back on the year that was. A time before Ninja and Drake were besties, when Thanos appeared, and many other memorable moments. Mooney also shared what the future of Fortnite has in store for all of us. Not to mention the reveal of the Xbox One S Fortnite Battle Royale console bundle.

Route Creator Revealed for Forza Horizon 4

Next up were even more details for Forza Horizon 4 – the reveal of the much-requested fan feature: Route Creator. This in-game tool will allow fans to draw our their very own course in the world of FH4 and then share that online with the larger gaming community.

New Xbox Update Details

The first info for the next Xbox One update came through today as well, with features like Dolby Vision, new voice integration for Cortana and Alexa-enabled devices, and new details on Xbox Avatars. But in perhaps the biggest bit of news coming to Xbox…

Mouse and Keyboard Support for Xbox

Phil Spencer joined Inside Xbox for a very exciting piece of news: mouse and keyboard support for Xbox One. Soon, developers will be able to build mouse and keyboard support in their games if and how they choose — entirely at their discretion — and Xbox will support them in creating the right experience for their games to ensure an optimal and fair gaming experience. Warframe will be one of the first titles testing mouse and keyboard input when the feature arrives to Insider. We also announced that we’re partnering with Razer, a premiere peripheral manufacturer in the gaming hardware space, to bring you the best possible mouse and keyboard experience for this new functionality. We’ll have more details to share on mouse and keyboard support during our November episode of Inside Xbox.

Announcing X018

A global celebration all things Xbox filled with news, first looks, and surprises live streamed on the largest Inside Xbox episode ever. X018 will be hosted at the fourth-annual Xbox FanFest: Mexico City. While more than 10,000 fans will join us onsite, we hope millions of Xbox fans will join the celebration online. We will livestream X018 on Inside Xbox so fans all around the world can participate online.  Inside Xbox will air 3 – 5 pm central time on Saturday, Nov. 10, and fans can tune into Mixer throughout the weekend for additional X018 news.

Reach Out Worldwide Charity

Last year, Xbox teamed up with Cody Walker for Game4Paul3 and helped raise over a $150,000 for Reach Out World Wide. We’re getting everyone back together this year for another big charity stream, and we could not be more excited about this event. Catch the Game4Paul4 live stream on October 11.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider DLC Reveal

Shadow of the Tomb Raider may be the conclusion of the new Lara Croft trilogy, but there’s still plenty do to after the credits roll. In fact, seven-months-worth of tombs to explore. Larry raided Rich Brigg’s brain-space from Crystal Dynamics for an exclusive look at the first DLC coming this October on this episode of Inside Xbox.

The Forza Horizon 4 Seasons Simulator

We looked at the one-of-a-kind Forza Horizon 4 Seasons Simulator. The 360-degree booth is designed to mimic the changing seasons in Forza Horizon 4 where celebrities had to endure rain, snow, heat, and mud while they play the game on Xbox One X. Check out these stars battling all the elements on Inside Xbox.

Hollow Knight Interview

Hollow Knight is an incredible indie platformer that’s full of style and mystery, and it’s available on Xbox One right now. The Voidheart Edition on Xbox One means you get all the DLC included for free and is currently 20% for a limited time until October 2. Learn about this modern classic here on the show.

A Closer Look at the Forza Horizon 4 cover car: the McLaren Senna

Only 500 of these high-performance machines were made — and they’re completely sold out. The last one was auctioned off for close to three million dollars and Justine got to check out the cover vehicle for Forza Horizon 4 with Tanner Foust to find out why they’re so coveted.

McLaren Senna Stunt

Inspired by the cover car and spectacular showcase events in Forza Horizon 4, we staged an unprecedented head-to-head race at one of the world’s most iconic motor racing venues. The race saw a McLaren Senna take on the bikes in a straight fight to the top of the Goodwood Estate’s world-famous Hill Climb. And despite the bikes’ unconventionally direct route up the hill, including a few jaw-dropping jumps and tricks, the Senna’s incredible speed and power won out in the end.

Thanks to everyone who tuned in! We hope you enjoyed the show and we can’t wait to tell you all about next month’s episode in a few weeks.
