Whether you're brand new to Xbox or you’ve had a Series X/S for several years, you might not be getting the most out of your console.

It’s pretty easy to get complacent once you’ve got to grips with the basics, but our consoles are packed full with helpful features - features that you likely don’t even know exist. Thankfully, the Xbox community is on-hand to share its expertise, and they’ve got some must-know advice for Series X/S owners, both new and old, who are eager to learn.

Avowed is set to launch on Xbox later this year. Take a look at the latest gameplay trailer below.

It was Reddit user Matchoo93 who sought out some advice and they were quickly met with dozens of useful responses. “Double tap the share button to get straight to your list of captures,” rapidly became the most popular hack, courtesy of user __orangepeel__. “Damn, I didn’t know this,” replied samuraideska, while xH0LLYW000Dx added, “Me either.”

In terms of other useful tips, BuckThundersen offered, “There's a setting to automatically mute the TV speakers after connecting a headset. That one's helpful,” while Spider8461 said, “If you search any image on Bing on your Xbox, you can go to the three dots in the corner and make it your background! Not exclusive to the Xbox Series I don’t think but still cool.”

“There's a setting where you can turn off the light on the controller's giant Xbox button. It's way less distracting now,” suggested JobuuRumdrinker, plus Game_Bread commented, “Not hidden necessarily, but there is a Night Mode option in the accessibility settings that activates a blue light filter at whatever time you set it for. It's great for reducing eye strain if you plan on gaming late at night.” All in all, some great advice was shared.
