new update

What to expect in this update preview

For those of you that participated in last month’s (1403) update preview, this preview wave will be a little different:

  • The 1404 update preview will run a bit longer than the 1403 preview. As a result, not all of the features listed below will be available in the first 1404 update. Some features will be enabled in 1404 updates that are rolled out later in the preview.
  • Some of the features listed below will be enabled outside of a console update. Keep an eye on the forums for announcements and information on when new features are made available.

What’s new in this release?

  • 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 actually was one of the most frequently requested features from the first preview wave and we made it a priority to include it in the April update. Also, friends who are in multiplayer will be identified in the friends list. We’ll also add the ability to view friends’ most popular apps.
  • Blu-ray 50 Hz video output support for content recorded at 50 Hz will resolve video playback issues some Xbox Live members in Europe are experiencing.
  • Kinect voice and motion improvements will continue to fine tune the quality and reliability of Xbox One commands.
  • Improved GameDVR video quality through compression algorithm improvements.
  • Updates to Xbox One device management to address issues controlling TVs, set top boxes, and receivers that our customers have reported.
  • New audio settings to tune how much volume is lowered when Kinect is used in communications.

Friends online is back

well done :)

No external HDD support yet....though I still have plenty of room, that will likely be the next big wave of complaints

Most wanted for hard drive i can see that coming soon

also friends online is coming and that was hot topic

Its excellent to see Microsoft making improvements based on feedback from the gamers.

Great stuff :)

Please add media streaming and background music like on the 360, Oh and how do I get in on the beta for the new update?

Nice to see some tweeks with the kinect.. id still like to see some things added to snap. Like friends, messages, ect..

I wonder what Snap will be able to do in about 2 years... there is a thought for the day.

Wow, the forum just ate my comment. I'm hoping to see Snap able to Snap just about anything about 2 years from now.

I am happy to see the friends notifications coming back. The HDD space is not an issue for me yet but I know it is for some people. Once they sort all this stuff out I am hoping they will start to bring in new features and apps ect.

We’re also extending invitations to more Xbox Live members in our current Xbox One markets. New invitees will be sent an Xbox Live message to register, so keep an eye out.

We value all of the feedback we are getting from you. We know external hard drive storage is still a big one and we’ve promised before it’s on our list – I assure you that it still is. We’ll continue regular updates to Xbox One.
