Microsoft heeft laten weten dat mensen die in het preview-programma voor de Xbox One zitten binnen enkele dagen aan de slag kunnen gaan met de volgende update voor de console. De update zou officieel in april gaan verschijnen en brengt enkele nieuwe functies met zich mee.
– Game and app saves and updates. A game save progress bar will show you the status of your game saves. You will also be able to easily tell what games and apps are being updated or have been updated recently.
– Friends improvements. Notifications will be added to see when favorites and friends sign in to Xbox Live. This actually was one of the most frequently requested features from the first preview wave and we made it a priority to include it in the April update. Also, friends who are in multiplayer will be identified in the friends list. We’ll also add the ability to view friends’ most popular apps.
– Blu-ray 50 Hz video output support for content recorded at 50 Hz will resolve video playback issues some Xbox Live members in Europe are experiencing.
– Kinect voice and motion improvements will continue to fine tune the quality and reliability of Xbox One commands.
– Improved Game DVR video quality through compression algorithm improvements.
– Updates to Xbox One device management to address issues controlling TVs, set top boxes, and receivers that our customers have reported.
– New audio settings to tune how much volume is lowered when Kinect is used in communications.
