So for all of you who own an Xbox One, listen up! I have some information on some important project updates that you may or may not be interested in.

 

These new updates will be delivered at the start of next week.  Marc Whitten, Chief Product Officer has said that similarly with the Xbox 360, there will be regular updates for the Xbox One. These will deliver new features and platform experiences for Xbox One owners. 

 

February 11 – System Updates

The first update will be delivered to customers who sign into their Xbox One. Many new improvements will be featured including; behind-the-scenes updates for developers building apps and games, stability and product updates to improve the customer experience and continuous improvements to the quality of Kinect voice to allow for the commands to be more fluid and responsive over time. 

Some of the features you expect to see on February 11 include:

  • The ability to see and manage your storage space. You will find it easy to find how much space your content takes up and better management of your content. You will also be able to control your install lineup and more easily manage your download queue. My Games an My Apps are not in separate lists and you can pick the order in which you want your content to load. You can also better track the updates while they load though the boot progress indicator.
  • The battery power indicator is back! You can see it on the home screen so you can track how much battery is left in your controller.
  • You will also be able to use your USB keyboard with your Xbox One.

 

More details on these features and updates will be shared in the coming weeks.

In advance of what is to be the biggest game launch of the year, Xbox One users will receive another system update to prepare the console for Titanfall. The update will contain many new features and improvements, most significantly to the party and multi-player systems.

Titanfall is available on March 11th and is a team-based online multi-player game that showcases Xbox Live. The new part and multi-player system will be ready in time for the game’s release.

Marc Whitten, Chief Product Officer says that:

 

“We’ve been busy listening to your feedback and working hard to incorporate it into Xbox One as soon as possible. We’re always listening to you and we love your feedback so keep it coming”

 

To continue providing feedback to the Xbox Team then you can follow them on their Twitter and on their Facebook profile.

    Ok now I’m happy. These updates are going to be make such a difference even though they are only small changes, Especially the Battery update its very annoying not knowing when i need to recharge my batteries. It’s only cause i use Sanyo Eneloops and XX batteries I haven’t gotten to bothered by it to much.

    Even though I don’t yet own an X1, I have friends who do and the one thing they were always on about was the battery packs. The other notable thing too was the storage space and how much you had left. All good changes and I hope more better ones to come. At least they are listening 🙂

    Yeah it’s a good start at least. Hopefully they will also add notifications for when your friends pop online and what they are playing. Small things I didn’t really appreciate until they were taken away.

    Well it seems to me that they are continuously updating the system in conjunction to the feedback that they are receiving. Though yes the friends thing is a big thing. Though, when I am on my 360 I don’t get notifications of those on the X1. If I have 10 friends online, and 3 are on X1, then it will tell me that 7 are online. Strange, but they don’t even facilitate voice messages or that between the two platforms. If you are able to transfer friends etc to X1, then why not be able to communicate with them as well? Maybe that is a more complicated issue.

    Yes might be a little complicated or just something they never thought of adding, As I’m able to send and receive normal messages from friends on 360. Might even be a sales tactic also as because your typing to each other more reason people would a new version of the type pad for xb1 users. They did it with the headsets so we will just have to wait and see.

    It’s the start of some exciting times for the X1 owner.

    Exactly. I think what MS should do, is make the console cheaper so that more people can buy it 😛

    I love my Xbox One, and hearing that it IS going to get better is music to my ears. I can’t wait for the year ahead with Xbox and Microsoft 🙂
