The highlight feature has to be the ability to set your online status as "Do not Disturb", something fans have always been asking for. Mini Game Hubs provide an easy way to see friends who are now playing, upcoming achievements, and more.

Apparently, Microsoft is looking to update Xbox Achievements with a new "Careers" system and other special Avatar bonuses. As well as, see which Achievements you are closest to, and launch the game to obtain them. You can also sort your Achievements by how rare they are.

Mini Game Hubs: Soon to be available in the Guide. It will show you need-to-know information without leaving your game such as online friends, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group requests, and more.

Do not Disturb automatically prevents notifications from popping up, but the biggest reason you'd want to pick it is enjoying online games without getting bothered with messages and invites. You'll also be able to see who has liked your comments. The community feed has been tweaked to make reading comments much easier, and the "Next Achievements" feature is now accessible in the Guide so you can "view and sort a cross-games list of upcoming Achievements".

Additional inactivity shutdown options are being added to the Power mode & startup menu. Since the new Xbox Avatars won't arrive until early 2018, it looks like Microsoft may be bringing new surprises with Xbox Achievements too.

According to Windows Central, the new program will be through a subdomain of Xbox Live called Career.XboxLive.com (*which isn't live yet) and will work towards facilitating a much more rewarding experience, a game within a game while gamers game on their favourite games - makes sense?
