Future Xbox update will let you see which games are in Quick Resume

Microsoft is testing an update with the Alpha Skip-Ahead group that will let Xbox Series users see which games have Quick Resume active.

Xbox engineering lead Eden Marie explained the feature on Twitter, saying the update will have a new Group called Quick Resume, letting you know which games on the console have a save state.

The Xbox Guide will also update to tell players if a game supports Quick Resume or not, so that you know whether to find that save point before switching apps.

It sounds like the update will do a lot to make the whole Quick Resume process a lot more visible, because at the moment it feels like a dice roll with every game you open, with every now and then I get lucky and can Quick Resume.

Recent Xbox Series patches have worked on fixing random controller disconnects, and allowed players to suspend active games to free up bandwidth and speed up the download queue.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
