Last night our friends at Microsoft announced that their latest Xbox One system update will start rolling out to everyone. You can expect the update to be pushed to your console automatically within the next few days but if you can not wait you can try to completely power off the console and start it up again to see if it is able to fetch the update for you.
This system update brings some new and highly awaited features and fixes. Let’s hope it doesn’t bring any new bugs and that the console will run smoother and better than before.
Here is the list of new features in this system update according to Microsofts “Major Nelson”:
• Game and app saves and updates. A game save progress bar will show you the status of your game saves. You will also be able to easily tell what games and apps are being updated or have been updated recently.
• Friends improvements. Notifications will be added to see when favorites and friends sign in to Xbox Live. This was one of the most frequently requested features, so we made it a priority to include it in this update. Also, friends who are in multiplayer will be identified in the friends list.
• Kinect voice and motion improvements will continue to be fine-tuned for quality and reliability of Xbox One commands. For example, we’ve updated some of the gesture functionality to reduce false positives on non-hand objects triggering gesture commands.
• Improved GameDVR video quality through compression algorithm improvements.
• Blu-ray player supports 50 Hz video output for content recorded at 50 Hz. We’ll also be updating the Blu-ray Player app in the coming days to round out these improvements.
• Controller and headset adaptor firmware updates will reduce audio static and improve wireless connectivity.
• Silent reboot after system updates and system update on demand now available. If your console is in Instant On mode, the update will happen automatically and return to standby upon completion. This means you won’t need to power on your console after an update moving forward. If you want to take future updates when available without waiting for your console to do it on its own, we’ve added this option under system settings and you’ll be able to use it next update. It will only show as available when there is an update to take.
Seems like a decent list of improvements in a short amount of time after the last update was released. Don’t forget to connect your controllers with your headset to the Xbox One to update the controllers firmware as well. Good job Microsoft, I’m looking forward to the next Xbox One system update.
