Xbox One April 2015 Update Drops

 |  |  |  |  April 15, 2014


The latest update for the Xbox One game console began rolling out this week. The update is bringing with it several new features that will improve the console and make it better for owners. The update includes changes to game and app saves with a new progress bar. That progress bar shows you the status of game saved and makes it easy to tell what games and apps are being updated.

Friends’ notifications were improved with new indications that let you see when favorites and friends sign in to Xbox Live. Friends who are in multiplayer will also be identified on the list with the new update. Another important update is the addition of Kinect voice and motion tracking. Microsoft has tweaked the functionality of Kinect to have fewer false positives with non-hand objects triggering gesture commands.

New compression algorithms for the GameDVR are included and the controller and headset firmware has been updated for better communications. Xbox One consoles now also have silent reboots after updates so the system returns to standby automatically after the update is applied.
