Today, Microsoft announced that the April update for Xbox One is releasing today and will make it to consoles worldwide over the course of days. The update brings a myriad of new features including performance updates, more games supported by Clubs, and more.

Other additions include Auto Low Latency Mode will give players a low latency video mode while playing, providing the automatic switch to TVs that also support the mode.

Support for a variable refresh rate to AMD Radeon FreeSync and FreeSync 2 displays. Xbox One X and Xbox One S will feature a high dynamic range with AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 along with 2560×1440 display. These options are available on the DIsplay & Sound setting on the Video Output tab.

Xbox One users can also expect easier ways to share images to Twitter, switch between light and dark themes, improvement to Narrator, the audio balance between music and game audio, updated look to Microsoft Edge, and more game supported by Game Hubs.
