Parents Can Now Kick Their Kids Off The Xbox Remotely

Get ready for your parents or partners to have a lot more power when it comes to getting you off the Xbox because the console's new update lets other people remotely turn off your Xbox at certain times.

Growing up we all at one point had parents yelling at us from another room to get off our favorite video game console and now parents, or even your partner, can pause your screen time from the Xbox Family Settings app.

Xbox made the update on December 10th and once you "pause the console's screentime" nobody can play it until you "un-pause" the console again.

This sounds like the perfect update to come during the holidays when you know a TON of people are going spend all of Christmas Day playing their new video game console so just be ready!
