Next Xbox One Update Begins Rolling Out Today


Today, we will begin rolling out the next Xbox One system update to fans around the world, which will include improved social features to make sharing your gaming experiences with friends better and easier. These new features are a result of your invaluable feedback, including some of the most requested features seen on Xbox Feedback. You can see some of the new features in the video above.
Here’s the final list of the features rolling out to Xbox One systems starting today and over the next few days:

  • Mobile purchase: One of the most requested features on Xbox Feedback. Using Xbox SmartGlass or on Xbox.com, you can remotely purchase games and Add-on content. No more waiting to begin downloading when you get home – if your console is set to automatically take updates, your console will begin downloading your purchase.
  • Activity feed updates: We’re adding new ways for you to interact with friends in the activity feed. The interface will change to a single column scrolling list that is longer and includes more content. We’ll add the ability to post text to your feed, and to “like” and comment on feed items. You can share game clips and anything else in the feed with friends either publically (to your activity feed) or privately (as an attachment to a message). You’ll also be notified when anyone likes, comments on or shares your items. Each user will get a personal feed on their profile, so you can see what specific friends have been up to. And, with SmartGlass, you can see what your friends have shared to their activity feed and “like” specific posts (additional activity feed support coming in future SmartGlass updates).
  • Low battery notification: You asked for it, now a notification will pop up when your controller battery is getting low.
  • Disable notifications during video: Adding the ability to turn off notifications based feedback we heard from you.
  • Enabling 3D Blu-ray: An update to the Blu-ray player app will enable 3D Blu-ray functionality on Xbox One.
  • Last seen time in Friends list: Direct from Xbox Feedback, the friends list will now show how long it’s been since a friend has been online. For example, “Last seen 20m ago: Forza Motorsport 5.”

Please continue to share your suggestions and recommendations on our dedicated Xbox Feedback site. Your sustained feedback is incredibly valuable and I can’t thank you enough for helping us make Xbox the best place to play. Stay tuned for even more new features headed your way in the coming weeks including more social features and a few new updates for watching TV.

 

System Update, Xbox One By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • Mando44646

    Screenshot capability please!

    • Patrick

      Have you been to xbox. uservoice c o m

      • Jez Gregg

        Good morning mr P

  • Jacob

    No friends tab? :(

    • http://summified.com/ Ry L

      next update yo.

  • Grifter17

    Sweet .. Bring It On

  • Chris

    Awesome. Keep the updates coming!

  • http://www.trueachievements.com/NBA+Kirkland.htm NBA Kirkland

    Thanks for getting the disable notifications during video feature in there. I like how notifications are re-enabled when the video is paused. Very classy :-)

  • Anubis316

    Great, we still need touching up on notifications though, they last too long and are too big. Such a neusiance. And are we to expect the gamerscore leaderboards next update? I am really looking forward to that one

  • http://gh.linkedin.com/pub/kenneth-yaw-agyeman-badu/1b/351/482 Kenzibit

    Awe mehn…what a great community Xbox is. But please Major, help let them bring back our Avatars…we spent soo much on costumes and props and no one sees them now….just a profile picture. That’s my only concern now.

    • dibils

      well you bought em on xbox 360 and people can see them easily on xbox 360.

      • SanchitoBandito

        Don Mattrick?

      • http://gh.linkedin.com/pub/kenneth-yaw-agyeman-badu/1b/351/482 Kenzibit

        Yeah but at least they can be made to carried over to the One.

    • Lucky13X

      Avatars seems to be going the way of the old “blades” dashboard background which is still for sale on some places on the 360.

  • Jeremy

    PLAY AUDIO THROUGH TV OPTION! PLEASE!!

  • http://summified.com/ Ry L

    Yay!

  • Drew Croft

    We need a screenshot feature so bad.

    • todd Wright

      why i cant really see anyone using it

      • Skode

        It would be exponentially quicker to upload screenshots than game clips though in theory. Oh and caption them for the lolz, i dunno i think this is a feature which could be better received than you might think.

      • Billy M

        I would use the hell out of it, though i can do it with my elgato already.

      • SanchitoBandito

        I’d use it a lot more than the DVR, honestly.

      • Drew Croft

        A lot of people would use it, I would use it over just capturing video which I’ve never done.

    • Lucky13X

      This is available but not for sharing purposes, just bug reporting. PS4 has it, not sure why Xbox 1 cannot have it.,

    • Aron Gustafson

      I’m all for this. Sometimes a funny glitch is only needed in a single photo or maybe the results of a match you just played. Let us save it to our OneDrive and share from there.

  • Nick Casale

    Great job, I’ve noticed a big speed boost with the latest update. Hope to see themes/wallpapers soon. The UI is sorely lacking any kind of personality, I want it to feel like “My” xbox! Keep up the good work.

  • Ronny Stickney

    I still can’t watch my movies off of my Hard drive. It re formats my hard Drive everything I hook it up erasing everything. Add a Call of Duty subscription similar to EA. I will gladly pay $29 a year for that.

    • Patrick

      That’s coming in September update

  • War5torm

    DLC achievements need to be separate from the main game. Tired of seeing my 100% disappear because of DLC :(

  • Ice Panda

    Wonder what Xbox 360 gets in its next update. Also does anyone know what deals where getting this week.

  • Vadim

    Additional languages?

  • silverf1n

    Great Stuff. I’ve been looking forward to this one.

  • http://www.trueachievements.com/Samba+P.htm Andreas

    this is great! with the one about to be released in more countries when will we hear about new apps that might be coming. The premiere league has started and I really want to be able to watch it on my One, will we see a Viaplay app here in scandinavia?

  • shadowsphynx

    Awesome, thanks major! But can i ask why the “xbox on” voice command for Australia that was announced with all this back in June has now been pushed back to the next update?

    • Jez Gregg

      Probably issues, it helps when people run the kinnect setup regulary at diff times to aid feedback

    • MURD3R HE WROTE

      Could also be since they’re releasing in A LOT more markets in September, they’re just going to do a package deal for a lot of Country’s.

  • ozspeed

    Fix the achievements bugs! I lost 10.000 G from my total (97000)… :(

  • kingcrusher

    3D support, yay!!!! :-) Way to listen MS, you guys are doing great.

    • Jez Gregg

      Ive been using it on the preview works better then my standalone

  • Gazmaster3D

    I can now put my PS3 out to pasture. 3D support finally :)

  • fastharryDOTcom

    So my friend is in a game….I want to “chat” with him real quick to see if he will be on later…….Ya know what, I can’t without inviting him to a party….which is something I COULD do on the 360…

    can someone explain to me why a SIMPLE ONE TOUCH, cross game chat system is NOT on the XBOX one?…NO ONE joins a party to chat…

    • mcmax3000

      “NO ONE joins a party to chat”

      Really? I feel like that’s far, and away the thing people use parties for most.

      • fastharryDOTcom

        Right..I agree…..But what they don’t do is leave their party to join another party….even though you just need to ask them a quick question. They think you are asking them to leave their own party..

        With a dedicated chat request, they would know you just need to talk…and you are not requesting them to leave their party for yours..

        • mcmax3000

          I can honestly say I never once used that chat option after parties were introduced.

          Seems if you just need to ask a quick question, a message would be the solution.

          • fastharryDOTcom

            so you are saying I need to peck out a message..send it..he needs to peck out a reply..while playing games in a PARTY…and send it back…

            That makes WAY more sense than hitting a button, he answers..I ask a question and goodbye…

          • beardyman3218

            Do you mean private chat, if so, yes bring this back.

          • fastharryDOTcom

            yeah..Private Chat….No wonder no one gets what I mean…Thanks!

          • fastharryDOTcom

            and thats my point….there is no chat option…

  • fastharryDOTcom

    Will this update allow us to share files in ONE Drive?….If I want to send pics of of 55 Chevy, My gaming system or anything else to a friend there is no way to do that besides going to ONE DRIVE and email him…

    For a system that wants to take on a social media stance…this is the dumbest thing I have seen…

    And PLEASE…a “SLEEP” timer that shuts everything down…..WTF is so hard about that?…Esp. when you want everything connected to the XB1….You allow to to turn everything on and off….yet I can go to sleep and have it work with a function that should have been there to start with..

    • Jez Gregg

      You should. Send these to the forum feedback for requests i doubt the dev team reads most of these posts

      • fastharryDOTcom

        I’ve sent them a hundred times….I don’t understand how companies with so many engineers have no common sense when it comes to usability…

        Wait, I just answered my own question……

        • Jez Gregg

          I suppose they release what they want. i reckon it will take a few years for most features to come through like the 360 dash improvements

          • fastharryDOTcom

            I just sent them on the feedback forums again….

          • Jez Gregg

            Check my twitter @j3zm0n7e regarding the media app and audio cd player both working at once but not with a physical disc game

  • eAbyss

    Jeeze… Still playing catch up to the 360. Why hell weren’t the 360′s features included from the start?

    • dibils

      because they couldnt just copy and paste features.. they have to reprogram everything.. i think its pretty obvious

      the changing of the 24hour check in probably put them back months in terms of OS updates

  • truone

    I like the new activity feed nice job with the updates keep it up.

  • Holte Beaufort

    3d blue ray discs are not recognised after update ?

    • Robin Abrahamsson

      Doesn’t work for me either.

  • Pinel G

    Disable notifications during video. – this was asked many many times for xbox360. guess that console is never gonna get another update!

    • Vallant Kultgen

      That feature has been there for years.

      • mcmax3000

        Since launch I think.

    • AaronionRings

      You haven’t actually looked at your notification settings then. Got to:
      Guide > settings tab > preferences > notifications
      Uncheck “Show During Videos” and you’re done.

  • mcmax3000

    Mobile purchasing is cool. I was always wondering why Smart Glass didn’t have access to the Marketplace.

    Nothing else in this one is really overly exciting for me. I’m more interested in the next update after this one.

    • http://summified.com/ Ry L

      So….is there an update to Smartglass rolling out as well?

      • mcmax3000

        I’m guessing there will be at some point. I don’t see any purchasing options in it right now on my iPad.

  • S P

    How about a feature to turn off the vibration in the controller please I could not play madden this year do to that

    • Lucky13X

      This may need to be a Dev request for the game Madden, or a 3rd party controller purchase.

      • CiDhed

        Or buy a controller and unplug the motors, use it only for games you want to remove vibration from.

  • KaosTheory

    Still no update for what i’ve been asking/praying for. The 360 never received it and i am only hoping that the XB1 will get it. If Sony catches on, I may jump ship if they do it first. Hopefully MS hears me this time. Please allow the Xbox 1 to make some beer! A notification once it’s done brewing would be nice too. Not asking for a whole lot here :-)

    • Lucky13X

      And I thought it was something serious.

      • Legion

        Well, it would SERIOUSly be the best value in video gaming. I’d buy a second. And give one to my father, who would then love me forever finally.

  • Vallant Kultgen

    The Xbox One UI is a lot more speedier now thanks Microsoft:)

  • Kieran

    Nice update keep them coming. Gamescom was also a good showing from Microsoft. It flowed better than E3 with lot of games. I wouldn’t be surprised if Microsoft sells a few more consoles in the coming months. Sony conference was a borefest.

  • Kieran

    Announce a Gears of War collection Microsoft! I love something like that.

    • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

      Yes, because there aren’t enough last-gen rehashes coming as it is.

      • Kieran

        Gears and Halo are iconic games from last gen. Remastering them for a new generation isn’t a rehash. Lot of gamers never experienced Gears 1 or 2 and if they played them on the 360 it just would not be for them. The graphics the gameplay mechanics are aged. Like Gears 1 is from 2006 it would need a update.

        • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

          It’s a rehash from last generation. You didn’t see the Xbox 360 tethered with a rope around its neck by the original Xbox games. I didn’t buy this thing to play through my old 360 library all over again and to pay publishers another time for that so called remaster.

          I don’t get particularly excited over games I’ve already bought before and played to death. If you do, that’s your problem.

          • AaronionRings

            Don’t buy the collection then? We’re getting Halo 5 next year, we’ve got new games like Sunset Overdrive this year and there’s a lot of new games being released inbetween.

            I loved Halo 1-4 so I’ll be picking up the Halo Collection on day one. I don’t want to have to keep going back to my 360, I’ll stick with current gen if I can. For those that want it and for those that missed out, this is a great collection.

            If you don’t want it, don’t buy it. It’s doing you absolutely no harm by existing.

      • MobileVortex

        Why are you so mad bro?

        • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

          I’m not your “bro”. Either address me like a normal adult or don’t bother at all.

          I’d prefer the latter, to be perfectly honest.

          • MobileVortex

            Bro there is no reason to be hostile… Lay off the whiskey for a few days see if you can get on a normal level. We’re here for you. If you need anything brah you just let me know.

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            Whatever Dane. You can go away now. Feel free to have the last word if you like but I’m already done wasting my time with you.

          • MobileVortex

            Dude’s got some social issues he needs to work out. Or maybe just a good long nap.

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            You don’t anything about me, Dane. So you can stop pretending.

          • MobileVortex

            I can see what you post on these forums. Based on that your a very unpleasant person, that has trouble communicating in a peaceful manner. You need to find the reason you’re so angry bro. You don’t want to get an ulcer.

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            Please refer to previous statement, Dane.

          • Mike P.

            Why would we address you like an adult when you don’t understand how to act like one, bro?

          • Prosper Carter

            you’re a troll

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            I’m whatever you need me to be to make yourself feel vindicated, Prosper.

      • Aron Gustafson

        You really are an unhappy person. You need a hug.

        • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

          You know what I need? Aron Gustafson to go pull a Robin Williams and piss off. Forever.

          • Aron Gustafson

            What we need is a world with a lot less people like you. Have a good day sir.

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            Keep dreaming. Be sure to find a good load bearing part of the ceiling when you put the rope around your neck.

        • Iron Patriot

          I think something entirely different would work much better.

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            Humor me, anonymous nobody. What? What clever thing do I need according to you?

  • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

    Useless. Every single aspect of this update. Except for the low battery indicator, but even that isn’t some epic innovation we should be *THAT* thankful for. The UI seems a bit speedier than normal, but I’m sure that’ll change after a day or two and a good ol’ classic daily hard reset will be back on the menu.

    How about being able to stream music while playing a game? You know, like the Xbox 360 does? That ancient but still superior predecessor?

    • MuscledRMH

      Dude, you will get that stuff in September. Stop bitching and be happy with all the updates and improvements

      • Aron Gustafson

        Some people no matter what will always be unhappy with what ever they are given.

        • Peter

          Agreed. I’m on ms’s side on this one. Should alot of these little things been there since day one in retrospect? sure but give ms a break. The last few months they have been trying to add new features at a steady rate and i commend them for that. The PS4 is in the same boat lacking in stuff.

          People seem to have a VERY short memory when comparing x1 to 360. Those features you see standard now on 360? Compare that with the early 360 blade os. It took them quite a while to get to what the os looks like now.

          As far as the ridiculous 32gig 360 external limit. Thats another story. of Its just patently stupid thing they refuse to acknowledge and fix.

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            Streaming music during gameplay was a feature available from the start of the 360 in November 2005. During any game title at any time. Amusingly enough, the console also had a battery life indicator. Imagine that. It’s not about a short memory, it’s about a console that was rushed out like a premature birth and that gaming was an afterthought for in its conception.

          • Beani

            STFU.

            Stop feeding the troll

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            Wow. One comment and that’s the best you can offer? Piss off.

          • WARLORD

            I am like a prickly pear!

          • Aron Gustafson

            I remember the Blade UI. It was awful compared to what the 360 has become today. These systems are always a work in progress and change and evolve as time goes on. They have admitted mistakes and nothing everything can be done in a snap of the finger. I commend then on releasing updates Monthly and keeping us in the loop on what they are working on.

      • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

        I’ll be happy when my 500 dollar Roku box actually has a chance of competing with the functionally superior Xbox 360. Until then, or when you give me my money back, I’ll complain about what I want.

        • Aron Gustafson

          You knew that functionality wasn’t there when you bought. You ungrateful individual. Should have waiting to buy your $500 Roku then.

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            Ungrateful? Ha. Yes, because I should be so grateful to Microsoft for a slew of worthless functions and having to continue to play catch up to their previous better console.

            That battery life indicator a few months ago. I’m so thankful. They did us such a service with simple functions that should have been there from day one.

          • Aron Gustafson

            Again you did not have to spend $500 of your hard earned money on a product you would not be happy with. You did have 30 days to return and get your money back at most Retailers. We as early Adopters know we will do through these issues and you have to be patient with them.

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            Until I get an endorsed check from you for 500 dollars, feel free to stop talking to me.

          • LeoKurtz

            I love my Xbox One, but you´re absolutely right in your complains. The Xbox One should be the “king of the living room” day one, not more than a year and several updates after launch.

            I´m waiting for all this features before starting to hole heartily recommend it to my friends

          • Peter

            umm…am i the only one here that thinks this guy should chill the fuq out? seriously are you here to start fights or are you just trolling?

          • Nick Peck

            So just because YOU don’t like them, makes them all worthless huh? Yup, typical “everything is about me” “gamer” lol. You don’t like it, so everyone owes you something… /smh

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            When I get an endorsed check from you for 500 dollars, not counting software, then feel free to tell me what I can and can’t like about this. Until then, don’t respond back to anything I say that doesn’t implicitly address “Nick Peck.”

          • MURD3R HE WROTE

            Preach on em nick.

          • WARLORD

            Lies, deceit, mixed messages… This is turning into a real marriage

        • Nick Peck

          I guess you should have paid more attention to what the system had / didn’t have before spending the money in the first place then. No ones fault but your own.

          • Brad

            Nick if people actually paid attention to what the XB1 had/didn’t have or was even capable of doing, it would have never sold 3 million by the end of the year last year.

            Or maybe they believed what was advertised only to see it completely reversed. You can’t fault the consumer for this one. That’s why they call it the bait and switch and that is why consumers are not buying XB1.

        • AaronionRings

          Sell your console then. The Xbox One may not have all the features the 360 has but it’s functionally superior, not inferior. It has quite a few functions the 360 does not and cannot have and for the functions they share, it’s much faster and easier on the Xbox One.

          We’re getting monthly updates with fixes, additional features and changes, all of which are useful and going in line with feedback. We’ve not had frequent updates this on a preview generation console.

          Things will get better and we’ll keep getting more as time goes on but these things take time to develop, test and implement. It’s not as simple as just spending a day implementing new features. Oh and no, before you try and talk about how the 360 had it, the Xbox One is not using the same OS or architecture. They are entirely different.

          You knew what you were buying into and if you didn’t know what features were and weren’t available when you purchased it then you should have done your research like most do when spending that sort of money on something. If you’re just going to sit there being miserable about your console, complaining every chance you get then you may e better off selling the thing until you find this box worthy of your attention.

          I use mind daily and I find it adequate for doing quite a few things. There’s lots of improvements I want made and I want quite a few things added but MS are being quite good about updating it and I knew exactly what I was getting.

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            I stopped reading after ‘Sell your console.’ Pretty damn good idea.

          • Brad

            Not if you paid $500 for it. The console has already been discounted quite a few times and right now it’s $399 with a FREE game. You’ll never get close to what you paid.

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            Good point. Microsoft can’t give this glorified cable box away. What am I thinking? Better off to just cut my losses, set it on fire, and hang myself with the Kinect.

          • rkm80

            See ya!

        • deadbox102

          You’re funny.

        • Mike P.

          Get your money back from the store, not from users here, or from Major Nelson. You had a pretty big window to get store credit for your money spent, if not a full refund. Until then, we’ll complain because you refuse to take the outs provided for you yet think it’s acceptable to complain here as if you have good reason.

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            The same offer applies to you Mike. Feel free to give me 500 dollars so you can tell me what to do or what to think, or you can perish in a boating accident for all I care.

            Less talk from you, more swallowing. You have a T-cell count that needs to start dropping.

            I’m not sharing my toys with you in the sandbox anymore. Or my cookies with you at nap time. You’re not my friend anymore!

          • https://www.facebook.com/TheGamingAlcoholic The Gaming Alcoholic

            Good. My day is already getting better.

            Tool up, honey bunny. It’s time to get bad guys.

      Play from Windows Media Player or Spotlite (Win8) with Share. You will probably have to have music app snapped, but it works.

    Useless. How about OneGuide in new markets?

    • LeoKurtz

      OneGuide in Brazil, Mexico, Austria and Ireland was promised for this update on July 18th, and it was the most wanted feature for people in those countries (myself included).

      Hopefully we´ll get it in the September update, along with “Xbox On” in New Markets

      • Maikon Moro

        With the preview program, i already have oneguide in Brasil, and a lot of new features, like the ea access(im already in). so just wait or get an invite to the beta program.

    • sala91

      Oneguide for Estonia please!

  • rsqviper

    Can I PLEASE get an option to play chat through speakers, headset or BOTH like on the 360? This is a WAY undervalued option that is MISSING with the XB1.

    • Jez Gregg

      Isnt that usually in the game settings it was on the destiny beta. mind you i did that on 360

      • rsqviper

        Right, now it has to be coded by the game. It USED to be a basic system ability. no wit’s game-to-game different. That is an awful design. PS3 did this as well and it was terrible.

  • Avatar Roku

    The new Activity Feed stinks, it doesn’t show which apps and games people are using anymore. All it shows is unlocked achievements. Disgusting how they take away a feature and try to make it sound like that makes it better somehow. Why do I want to look at a list of unlocked achievements and other peoples added friends? Let me see what my friends have been doing on the console, that was so much more interesting.

    • Marcus Roof

      I thought there was supposed to be a “such-n-such person was last seen playing or doing X thing” or something?

      • Patrick

        it is there under friends view

    • Patrick

      your right i just noticed that. I am running the September update,

    • http://people.ign.com/ltsjoemama ltsJoeMama

      Well that’s disappointing..

    • MURD3R HE WROTE

      there was no need to show what games people were playing in the activity stream, because guess why? If you were looking at the stream, the friends list that showed exactly what you friends were doing was already right beside it.

    • sala91

      Agreed. Who friends who is annyoing metada. Unfriended couple of friends because it made my newsfeed spammy of new freinds add news. I wish also, that apps would find a way back to newsfeed. Games discovery is now better, I actually see what the popular games are among my friends. Amazing. If only I could also know on what timeframe what kind of game is more popular. Would help me plan :P

    Auto-bitstream audio from Blu-rays and this becomes my new 3D Blu-ray player. I know it’s a function with a limited market, but the Xbox One should still be able to do it.

    • beardyman3218

      If your reciever supports pcm audio over hdmi your better off using that than bitstreaming.

      • http://www.doblu.com/ Matt Paprocki

        Well, the X1 is always sending a 7.1 signal, even if the disc is pushing 5.1. There’s an audio overlay of sorts to handle the snap functions. Plus, I’d much rather have my audio-specific receiver do the decoding than a multi-purpose game console. At this point, the PS4 can sort of bitstream, but without a media remote, it’s kinda pointless.

  • ElektroDragon

    TV Tuner in USA market please.

  • Carlos Pacciulli

    Got the update, 3D playback still not working..,,any reason why?

    • Patrick

      turn it on under settings > display

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      you have to have a 3D TV. your welcome. come again!

  • cbns

    Great update. I like how Xbox One gets better every month.

    • cbns

      There is a one small thing that could be fixed in next update. :)

      Power mode: Energy saving (doesn’t happen in instant-on)
      Problem: i’m charging my controller via USB cable and “turn on” my console using controller. My console boots to menu but my controller turns off. I have to take usb cable out of my controller so i can turn my controller back on.

      • Patrick

        i just tried on mine, xbox is on energy saving mode, i plug in my controller, turned off the box eventing is off, i let it set for a min then power back up, and my controller is still on it did not turn off. or is this something after is sets for a few hrs

        • cbns

          *Takes power cable out of wall and tries again*

          It happens only if i’m charging my controller via usb when i turn off my console and turn it back on from that controller when usb cable is still connected.

          It doesn’t happen if i first turn off my console and then connect usb cable to my controller.

          • Jez Gregg

            Strange that just tried min both power options and fine maybe its been fixed are you in the preview cbns

          • Patrick

            yea, i can not replicate the problem as well,
            maybe try a new controller

          • cbns

            I’m using newest non-preview update. Usb cable is connected to left side of my console. Behind my console i have 1TB usb 3.0 drive and local mains are 230V.

            Same problem with another controller. I was also using different micro usb cable but there is no difference. I have only one battery pack so i can’t change that part right now.

          • Jez Gregg

            Have you tried the controller update in the system settings

          • cbns

            Problem solved. I had updated my controllers last time when Titanfall was released.

            I updated my controllers and now they don’t turn off when i turn my console on. Thank you.

  • Marcos Maharaj Kapoor Barros

    • m1nh0ca

      • Marcos Maharaj Kapoor Barros

    • sala91

      facebook and twitter apps would be nice

  • michael bivins

    Has anyone tried purchasing through smartglass? I can’t seem to figure it out. (Noted that I’m using the iPhone)

    • Jez Gregg

      Make sure your using the smartglass BETA version see my twitter @ j3zm0n7e for pics

      • Patrick

        they also just updated the normal smartglass for store support

        • Jez Gregg

          Ok ta Patrick its possible the beta version will be update purely the preview program

          • MURD3R HE WROTE

            you signed me up for the preview, is it still pending?

          • Jez Gregg

            Once we put it thru we only get the standard message of its pending they dont inform of us when it goes thru. See my twitter for pics @ j3zm0n7e i hope ms are accepting invites as its still going on the preview app even now tonight and i dont wanna get peoples hopes up for ms to let them down and me and Patrick and other waste our time as well

          • MURD3R HE WROTE

            agreed. thanks.

  • John Smith

    Very nice – one more month till “Boot to TV” and I’ll be able to reconnect my One and cable without the family revolting again.

    So good to see such support from MS.

    • njschultz

      Ever think of an dual HDMI switch? Input = the “TV/Receiver OUT” from your DVR. Output(s) on the switch: (1) send to the A/V Receiver and (2) send to the XBOX One “IN”. At least it gives you some choice to view TV with or without X1 as part of the video output.

  • Paul Marshall

    how about adding a external drive option

    • Patrick

      now you can use an external drive for extra storage
      and in the September update you can use an external drive for media playback

    • MURD3R HE WROTE

      you can already do that since june.

    • Maxim Baeten

      that’s already there
