Announced at E3 2018, FastStart is part of Microsoft's July platform update that brings a number of small - but impactful - updates to the console. This is what differentiates it from the existing Ready to Start feature - that allowed players to launch games before they were fully downloaded, but required developers to manually section off required data.
