Updated Feature for Alpha Skip-Ahead and Alpha

Hide notification banners while watching video – Update

We’re updating how the “Hide notification banners while watching video” feature performs on your console!

Recently, we discovered why some apps were only registering this setting when audio was playing, but not while video was playing. We want to improve this functionality so banners do not appear while a video is playing more accurately across the console! Starting today, this setting should properly reflect its intended use.

Let us know what you think of the latest improvements!
