New Xbox One System Update is Upon Us… Prepare Yourself
Microsoft is rolling out a huge Xbox One system update today making numerous improvements to its operating system. Among the many tweaks is the adjustment to the friends system that will notify you when players on your friends and favorite list sign into Xbox live. Also friends that are in multiplayer games such as Titanfall, will now be identified on the friends list as well. This was one of the most frequently requested changes by Xbox One owners about the OS. Due to the fact that the Xbox 360 has been doing this for years it is surprising to me that this was not a feature that was integrated into the OS at launch but since the framework of the two systems is so different it may not have been an easy fix until now.
Other features for this Xbox one system update include a game save progress bar showing the status of your saved games and you will now be able to view which games or apps have been updated or are currently being updated. A firmware update for the controller and headset adapter have been changed to help reduce the audio static as well as the wireless connectivity.
Another feature that the Xbox 360 was able to do with ease that has now been added to the Xbox One is the automatic update feature. This allows your console (assuming you have your instant on feature enabled) to automatically update and then go back to standby mode afterwards, therefore, removing the need to power on your console after an update in the future.
Changes to the GameDVR video quality, upgrades to the Blu-ray video content, and tweaks to the Kinect voice and motion detection to improve accuracy were also among the changes within this update. As one of first many major updates for the Xbox One OS to come, it is nice to see that Microsoft is working hard to fine tune their next-gen console as well as listening to the needs and concerns of Xbox loyalists to better implement them in an Xbox One system update.
