When the new Avatar system was first unveiled, many Xbox fans were excited to see the return of a favourite feature on the Xbox 360.

Xbox One Alpha Insiders are now testing a new firmware that brings a couple of nifty features.

Chief among the new features is a "Next Achievements" function found in the Guide, enabling you to view and sort a list of upcoming achievements. You'll get a quick look at the Achievements you are close to getting across all of your games and can even instantly launch them. There are sort filters that allow you to prioritize next Achievements by closest, most common, rarest, most common rare, and highest Gamerscore.

Mini Game Hubs: Soon to be available in the Guide. Mini Game Hubs provide an easy way to see friends who are now playing, upcoming Achievements, Looking for Group posts, and more.

Microsoft is also tweaking the community feed and adding more shut down options for the console including two, three, four, and five-hour increments. The Narrator is also now able to read large amounts of text.

Additional inactivity shutdown options are being added to the Power mode & startup menu. Now there are one and six hour options, but Microsoft chose to add, two, three, four, and five hour options after reviewing feedback from users. Some Insiders will also see "additional experimental features" to gauge interest and collect feedback on them.
