REDMOND, Washington — After a delay of a few days, the Xbox One February update is rolling out now. For Xbox One owners that use “Instant On,” the low power state that allows you to instantly power up your console by saying “Xbox On,” the console will automatically check for updates when customers turn it off. That means that the next time you turn off your console, it will update during off-peak hours in your local time.
With this update, users will find it easy to find out how much space your content takes up and better manage your content. Customers can also control their install lineup and more easily manage their download queue. Microsoft also separated My Games and My Apps into separate lists, so users can easily create separate queues for both. The company also added a boot progress indicator so customers can track updates while they load. Microsoft also brought back the battery power indicator. It can be reached from te home screen, so users can track how much battery life is left on their controller.
Here are some of the other features in the release:
- Ability to delete game and application save data
- Improved installation and DLC management
- Improved UI for accessing friends, achievements, messages, and party chat
- Game DVR app to be included in the Xbox OneGuide as an app channel
- Update to the boot progress indicators for system update
- Improve consistency of UX for update and install progress
- Improved NAT detection
- Network Troubleshooter improvements
- Blu-ray quality improvements
- Significant performance and stability improvements
