Microsoft has rolled out the latest Xbox update for May 2021, and gamers will see it as version 10.0.19041.7771! This brings a host of new features into the Xbox Series X and Xbox One family of consoles. Obviously, quick resume and some features are exclusive to the Xbox Series X, so don’t expect the changes for those to be included for the Xbox One firmware update.
