Have you heard the good news?

Look deeply into my eyes.

STADIA!


A few things:

- The Xbox Companion app is being discontinued soon, don't use it myself but it now has a message that tells you to download the (new) Xbox app. I don't know if the streaming features and such will get moved over.
- The current (new) Xbox (beta) app's icon went invisible on my taskbar, apparently because Microsoft changed it so that it's no longer (beta)... it's now just called "Xbox". This is not at all confusing to anyone.
- The Xbox (no longer beta) app is still called "Xbox (Beta)" on the Microsoft Store. Again, this is not confusing to anyone.
- There will soon be a new games-centric storefront app delivered in some capacity, whether it'll be inside the (new) Xbox (not beta) app or a seperate thing isn't entirely clear yet. Once again, no confusion here.

Well poo poo, the new Xbox app won't install if you don't have at least the Dec 2019 Win10 version, so if you blocked updates in the past, you're hosed

I do like that they keep the old xbox companion still in the store (smartglass) that also streams.

If you go into the xbox app settings > general and untick/retick all those options and say yes to the windows prompt to give startup permissions the icon shows up again, high quality updates.

There was very real reasons to block windows updates previously and anyone in an enterprise environment knows you don't just blindly roll em out.

Remember there was a windows update that nuked your documents and media folders in your profile accidentally with no way to recover the data without a backup.


Giving it a few days to let others guinea pig is a safe idea.

Yeah it was a while ago so you should have updates but that's probably why people might have stopped updates and forgot to put them on.

Not that Windows is well-coded, and this breaks a lot, but under normal circumstances you canít put off Win10 updates that long, it should have force-installed by now unless the install is significantly tampered with.
