Xbox One system update starts going out today - what to expect:

#1TBONE_OGPosted 12/10/2013 3:08:16 PM(edited)
From Major Nelson:

A. If you are using the Xbox One “Instant On” (the low power state that allows you to instantly power up your console by saying “Xbox On”), your console automatically checks for updates when it you turn it off. Once we make the update available (on Tuesday, December 10th, 5:00 PM PT) this means the following will happen:

Your console will automatically download the update after you turn it off. Once the update has been downloaded in the background, your console will power completely down. Please note: You will need to manually power your console back on after the update has been downloaded. Because the update will power your console completely down, the “Xbox On” voice command won’t be available until after the update is fully installed.
When you turn the console on you’ll see the update being applied. After that, your Xbox One will reboot. You’ll know the update is installing when you see the Xbox logo on the green background (like at the top of this post.) This can take anywhere from 2-5 minutes. Once the update has finished installing, you’ll boot to the Home screen and you’re all set.
Don’t worry, if you are out of town for the holidays, you console also does regular checks for updates and will download it in the background even if you have not used you Xbox One in a couple of days.

B. If you are not using the Xbox One “Instant On” feature, you will be required to download and apply this update after Thursday, December 12th at 4:00 PM PT.

This update addresses the following:

Addresses SmartGlass issues for some users when coming in and out of connected standby
Addresses multiplayer issues for some users when re-joining games
Addresses issues with inconsistent notifications for some users
Addresses dashboard performance for some users
Offers improvements for Xbox One’s TV, system update, and content update services for scaling over time
Updated wireless networking driver to improve connectivity issues for some users


We’ve got quite a few updates planned for the next year based on the community feedback we’ve been seeing, and I’ll have details on those in the future.

Who are you and why are you putting words in Mister Nelson's mouth?

You belong on the blizz D3 forums, it was built for people like you. Like how some barns are built specifically to contain filthy animals.

excellent. Help me out here a little, my console is in the standby mode apparently, my Kinect is not yet plugged in, and I have never powered it off completely.

I understand the console will automatically d/l and power all the way down and I'll need to boot it up when I get home tonight, so in the future how do Ipower all the way down and not just to standyby mode?

You have to hold the power button for several seconds although once you turn the system back on it takes quite a while to load up.

Will this fix the fact that Kinect cannot properly control my tv set? Does the dashboard fix mean that games will stop crashing back to the dashboard for no reason?

You're using "Xbox One “Instant On” (the low power state that allows you to instantly power up your console by saying “Xbox On”)"

You need to turn that feature off you don't want to use stand-by mode (instant on). It's in settings, and under console I believe.

It sounds like it could fix those issues noted in the bullet points.

I believe you just go up to it and press/hold the power button until it shuts off, give it a minute or two then power it back it on, it should run smoother.

Xbox One and PlayStation 4
Because I can buy both.

Go under "Settings"->"Power". The default setting for most X1s will be "Instant On" which puts the console into standby when it is turned off. If you toggle this setting to "Energy Saving", the console will fully power down when it is turned off instead. Of course it won't be able to do any background downloads when fully turned off. Or you could always just pull the power.

When you are in standby mode and automatically get the update, you'll know since the next time you turn on your Xbox you will see a green bar fill up finalizing the update, then a reboot will occur to apply the update.
