Xbox Is Getting A “Do Not Disturb” Sign

There’s nothing worse than when you’re enjoying a single player game than getting loads of messages or game and party invites from your friends is there? If only there was some way for you to show them that you don’t want to play with them without appearing offline.

Well fear not fellow gamers. Soon Microsoft will be launching something that will help you out. There is a feature currently being tested on the Insider Program that gives you a virtual “Do Not Disturb” sign. Soon, hopefully, this will be launching for the rest of us as well.

In an official statement Microsoft said “Sometimes all you want to do is avoid all distractions and focus entirely on your game. We’ll be including a ‘Do not disturb’ online status, which will suppress notifications and let your friends know that you’re not available for another game or activity right now.”

But lets be honest, we know our friends. A do not disturb sign is not going to stop them from bombarding us with invites, if anything it will only encourage them to send more.

This isn’t the only change that is coming. There will also be a mini game hub getting added and also different options to the inactivity shutdown menu. You will soon be able to choose whether your console will shut down after one, two, three, four, five or six hours.
