Microsoft has finally decided to offer its latest Xbox One console a much needed upgrade. According to reports, Microsoft's earlier promised spring update for the Xbox One has finally been pushed out for fans and owners, although the update was expected to arrive a few days earlier.
Revealed first via Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, the new update is the highly anticipated spring update (as we mentioned before) and brings over a host of revamped upgrades to the the newest gaming device that has already been released by Microsoft.
However, better late than never, the first major update for the console brings over a boatload of improvements, which includes better Kinect integration and voice recognition. Apart from that, the update brings over improved overall stability to the console, apart from some important fixes to the dashboard - like onscreen meters for the controller's battery and free HDD space.
And as far in-device HDD is concerned, Major Nelson states: "With this update, you will find it easy to find how much space your content takes up and better manage your content. You can also control your install lineup and more easily manage your download queue."
"We've separated My Games and My Apps into separate lists, so you can easily create separate queues for both. Now you can pick the order in which you want your content to load and we've added a boot progress indicator so you can better track updates while they load," he adds.
Here is the entire list of notes for the new update:
-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 & install progress
-Separate game, application, and install queue lists
-Addition of USB keyboard support
-Improved NAT detection
-Network Troubleshooter improvements
-Blu-ray quality improvements
-Significant performance and stability improvements
