Xbox Series X|S Boot Time Improving by 5 Seconds - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 25 July 2022 / 1,552 Views
The latest Xbox Insider build has sped up the boot time of the Xbox Series X|S by about five seconds.
The Director of Xbox Integrated Marketing Josh Munsee has confirmed the boot up animation has been shortened from around nine seconds down to about four seconds. This helps reduce the overall startup time.
Xbox has worked "to create a shorter boot up animation (~4s) from the original boot up animation (~9s), helping to reduce the overall startup time," said Munsee.
The quicker bootup time only benefits Xbox Series X|S users who have their console set to Energy Saver mode and not Standby mode. Energy Saver mode means the console fully shuts off and saves power compared to Standby mode.
The Verge says the bootup time in Energy Saver mode will improve from around 20 seconds down to about 15 seconds. This includes the time from pressing the power button and seeing the animation.
The senior product manager lead at Xbox Jake Rosenberg has added the faster bootup times are also coming to Xbox One generation consoles.
"Not only is the animation shorter, but Xbox One generation consoles are booting noticeably faster with these changes," said Rosenberg.
