If you’d like to turn on your Xbox One late at night without waking up your mom, cat or significant other, help is on the way as part of a future system software update, as shared by Xbox Live Director of Programming Larry Hryb.
I actually like the startup sound, glad they finally added it for when the system is powered on with the controller.
Maybe they can change it to using your own sound clips in a future update. Having custom sounds like on pc or your phone.
That would be great and offer some funny startup sounds.
Good I was pretty pissed that all of sudden it has a start up and power down sound after the last update. It's not as loud as the beep on my ps4 but I still don't like it.
Yeah, first thing I did was look into turning it off. I'm glad to hear that we'll have options in the future so people can choose if they want to use the sounds or not. Options are always good, like having BC!
I love it
It's good because it's a console alarm system similar to the one in my car, I'll know when someone messes with property. Pesky lil kids, they're part of the family but damn they're annoying, especially when your trying to sleep /s
I like it because in the past I've had times where my controller wouldn't turn on the system due to loss of power, and it makes it more clear when the system is on / off.
I'd like for when you have multiple users on a console that the start up screen can show the users in bubbles plus a guest like it sorta does when your opening an app that requires a user to be singed in
Muting it ASAP
Dear god THANK YOU!
The gears slim disc eject has an awful screeching sound. I would love to turn that sound off.
Good to have those options. I don't mind it, personally.
The only sound it makes is when it is completely powered down and even then you can just mute your tv if you don't want to wake anybody up. If it's in sleep mode (where most people leave it at) it only makes a couple of short little beeps to indicate it's fully on. Don't really see the need for this software muting feature really.
The sound comes from the box, so mute TV doesn't stop it. For me it matters because it didn't do it before, and it's quite loud in a Silent house at 4am. I used to be able to sneak to bed without anyone knowing how late I stayed up gaming, not anymore
Like i said, it only makes a couple of short beeps that you can barely hear at all. So i doubt anyone sleeping would be woken up by it.
My wife is woken by it. She's a light sleeper tho, but still.
I'd like this for the PS4. That beep seems loud af at nighttime
