Xbox One rolls out FastStart feature to speed up downloads

Xbox One's fast-loading feature rolls out today

First announced at E3, FastStart "works by identifying which files are needed to begin playing and prioritizes the download of those files first", Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb explained in a blog post.

The catch is that the feature is only available right now on certain English-language titles in the Game Pass catalog. The survival-centric multiplayer game has gone free-to-play on Xbox One, much like the current Steam Early Access version. Groups allows you to more easily "create collections" of your games and apps that can be synced across consoles (since they are tied to your Xbox Live account). All players have to do is simply click download on selected titles, with the system doing the rest, so it seems like FastStart will be fairly easy to use. Users can also tinker with them in a number of ways, including adding custom names to each Group and adding individual Groups to Home.
