Both the Xbox Series X and Series S are receiving updates that will make Quick Resume even better.
For Xbox Insiders, a new Xbox Update Preview is coming to the Alpha Skip-Ahead ring and it includes some great changes to the OS, which is available now for those who are part of the program.
Alpha and Alpha Skip Ahead Insiders: in case you were wondering why I shared that tip on reordering groups!

Users are now able to enable audio passthrough with their favourite apps and all you need to do is head into the settings and enable it. Head to Settings>Audio>Advanced>Allow Passthrough on the console. For those of you who love to watch movies on your console, this will be a great addition to making the experience better since you now have access to send the signal to your audio setup.
Quick Resume is amazing and it’s getting even better as a highly requested user feature is coming as part of this new update. Users now have access to a new group that shows all your Quick Resume save states. Xbox Guide will now tell you if the game you’re playing supports the Quick Resume feature, leaving out the guesswork.
Between this and xCloud finally beginning to roll out in a beta phase on Apple devices, the last few days have been a great treat for Xbox fans, I’m keen on trying out the xCloud beta on my iPad.
