New Quick Resume features are coming to Xbox Series X and S.
New updates, including the ability to see and delete Quick Resume save states to create space for other games, are rolling out to Xbox insiders at the moment. If you’re unfamiliar, Quick Resume is an Xbox-exclusive feature that allows users to suspend multiple games and swap between them at their leisure.
The news was revealed in a series of tweets from Eden Marie, Engineering Lead at Xbox. Marie’s tweets talk about how Alpha and Alpha Skip Ahead Insiders will now be able to see what games are stored in Quick Resume from the Xbox UI menu, under My Games & Apps. Users will also be able to see if the game they’re currently playing is Quick Resume compatible, so that they can make decisions about what save states to keep and get rid of.

Xbox Insider updates are released in a testing capacity, but it’s usually not too long before they roll out for all users. In this case, the changes should make it easier to work out which games will actually allow you to Quick Resume in the first place, as well as save space by removing saves from Quick Resume-able games you’re not planning on returning to.
In other Xbox update news, a previously insider-exclusive feature that allowed users to suspend games to speed up downloads was officially introduced to every Xbox user yesterday. Xbox Cloud Gaming is also entering limited beta for Apple devices and PC starting today, April 20.
