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.

    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🙂

    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

    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.

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

        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.

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

      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.

    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.

    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…

      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..

        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.

    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..

      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
