How many times has this happened to you? You got a bit of free time - maybe 20 minutes - you fire up the XBOX one for a quick game and it instead wants to download and install an update. This is a product design flaw. Somehow the needs of the device have been prioritized about those of its user.
Updates can be downloaded in the background during idle times. If the user must be bothered about it, then only after the entire patch has been downloaded. The type of thing seems endemic to Microsoft design - lots of unexpected maintenance tasks at inconvenient times where the user has to stare at a progress bar. There are so many examples of products where this stuff has been designed away.
It's embarrassing for me, but more so for Microsoft, when I have people over to watch a movie or play a game and I power up my xbox one and we spend the first 20-30 minutes watching a progress bar for an update. I'm trying to show off your device but instead....
Design this stuff away.
