Microsoft just announced two exciting new features for Xbox Game Bar with the October 2019 update to help you get the most out of your favorite XBOX games on PC.

Microsoft has launched the revamped Xbox Game Bar with tons of new features including new ways to track frame rate and your Xbox achievements. Just hit Win+G to check out the new features included in today’s update. For those of you power users who just can’t wait for the automatic update to hit your machine, you may manually trigger the install within the Microsoft Store app

FPS Counter and Performance Monitoring

With the October 2019 Game Bar update, Microsoft introduces the highly requested Frames Per Second (FPS) counter to the Performance overlay on Xbox Game Bar. For the performance junkies, they've also given you more control over which system resources are tracked and displayed on-screen, and added graphical options so you can customize the look and feel of the overlay (including transparency!).

Power Up Your Gamerscore with Xbox Achievement Tracking

Achievement hunters: you can now track your Xbox achievements from within Xbox Game Bar using the brand-new Achievements overlay. Beginning today, you can pin your progress towards your next achievement as you play, or pull up the overlay with a quick Win+G to view your game’s achievement list and individual achievement details. New achievement notifications will open Xbox Game Bar instead of the Xbox Console Companion app, so checking out that newly-unlocked achievement will keep you in the game and ready for what’s next without missing a beat. To enable the Achievement overlay in the new update, simply select it from within the overlay menu at the top of your screen.
