The Quick Resume feature allows users to quickly switch between multiple games and resume gameplay instantly, wherever the player left the game. The new update will now allow players to pin up to two games in Quick Resume on the Xbox Series S and X consoles. Microsoft says that games will only be removed and drop out of the Quick Resume section if they’re manually removed, or if a game takes a mandatory update.
