The focus is clearly on those who stream gameplay from their Xbox, as the first on the list is support for 1440p (2560×1440) video output. Microsoft is taking its interactive streaming platform Mixer to the next level by adding the ability to let streamers share their controller with their viewers, so a viewer can practically play the gamer's game without having physical access to the controller. Viewers will see a pause screen until you start another game, and you'll see an indicator on your overlay to let you know that the stream was paused automatically.

Introducing a new form of Mixer interactivity: Share controller.
Other improvements and changes being implemented include invite filtering for club owners, smarter feeds, the ability to start or join a tournament without being a member of a club, and additional audio options.
With the update in testing, more details on what the update will bring for gamers has also arrived. Your downloaded files are house in the File Explorer app. Last but not least, streamers can now begin their Mixer broadcasts from anywhere on the console, whether they're on the dashboard or within a game.
Users now also have an option to alter the balance between in-game audio and background music in the guide.
Another new feature is called immersive audio. Microsoft said it "completely revamped" the architecture so that if you have a surround sound system, "audio cues from your surround sound system will match the actions you see on-screen". In this case, the viewer has two options: an onscreen gamepad or their own Xbox One controller connected to their PC. Obviously, it's not likely that you have a 1440p television that your console is hooked up to, but you could have it set up with a 1440p monitor.
-Workaround 1: If stuck in this state, unplug and reinsert the HDMI cord into the back of the console, then power the TV off/on. You may also encounter errors booting up Netflix or Amazon Video.
If Microsoft Edge was pinned prior to downloading the 1804 update, attempting to launch Microsoft Edge from the existing pin will fail. Now, it can easily upload or download files. It will roll out to other testers later, while a public release will follow at a later period.
