Pin to Quick Resume

Quick Resume is powered by the technical capabilities of the innovative Xbox Velocity Architecture in Xbox Series X | S. It lets you seamlessly switch between multiple games and resume gameplay instantly from where you left off. With this update, you can now pin up to two games in Quick Resume on your Xbox Series X | S consoles. Your pinned games will only drop out of Quick Resume if you manually remove them or if a game takes a mandatory update.

Anywhere you see your Quick Resume group, you can select a game, press the Menu button, and choose Pin to Quick Resume. If you already have two pinned games, you’ll be asked which pin you want to replace.
