Incoming Xbox One updates to improve storage management, party and multiplayer features
This morning, Microsoft revealed that it is preparing two system updates for the Xbox One, updates that will bring plenty of new tweaks and features to patient and not-so-patient fans over the next few weeks.
The first update will be available beginning February 11. Everyone who signs into their X1 will receive a number of behind-the-scenes improvements to system stability, Kinect voice commands and more. Additionally, the update will bring with it the much-requested ability for users to see and manage their storage space, which will allow them to control the order in which content is downloaded, watch updates as they load and separate games and apps into separate lists.
Other features debuting with next week’s update include the return of a battery power icon for keeping track of the remaining battery life in controller (which you can see in the lower right corner of the image above) and X1 support for USB keyboards. Even more features are planned to make it into the update, which Microsoft will detail further as the launch date approaches.
Details on the second update are a tad scarce at the moment, but the gist is that it will bring significant new features and improvements to the X1’s party and multiplayer systems. The update will go live on March 4, just in time to ready the console for the launch of the highly-anticipated multiplayer mech-fest, Titanfall.
