If you are an Xbox One Alpha Inside member, there is yet more good news on the way for you as Microsoft has just revealed that a new Xbox One update is available offering another juicy preview of upcoming Xbox One features.

You can only get these if you are enrolled into this test program and those who are should see a new Xbox One 1802.180119-1917 update available for download right now.

New features include a new tab for Xbox Game Pass within the My Games and Apps menu for those with an active Game Pass subscription, allowing users to quickly install games available from Games Pass.
