August Xbox One Update Begins Rolling Out Today

#1PizzatarianPosted 8/17/2014 8:10:00 PM
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.

Installed. About to pop in Jurassic Park 3D. Decided that'd be my first 3D blu ray once I got the update. Probably going to jump to the T Rex escaping his paddock.

Well at least Phil Spencer announced at Gamescom that we will be able to pre-order soon starting with Forza Horizon 2. And the next update will bring DLNA, so that's something. Now we apparently just have to wait a bit longer for the ability to unsnap our music while we play our games.

In case anyone is wondering, the August Update is ~333MB. Not too bad. :)

The custom music thing. Is that like on the 360 where we can download our music onto the HDD and then play it while we are playing our games?

Yep, I hoped we would get it before horizon 2, love some road trip music and forza 5 desperately needs it over that orchestra crap.

Yeah, I'm hoping they include a pre order bonus but I doubt that. I just hate to cancel my pre order and then find out forza horizon 2 won't be able to do it after all. And that dlna got me excited until I read you can't play in game yet. I'd even pay for xbox music if it meant I didn't have to snap the music at this point.
