Microsoft is prepping more updates for Xbox One, designed to introduce some new features while refining others.
Speaking on his blog, Major Nelson said, “We’re still working on our next Xbox One system update and have been receiving some really great feedback from members with early access.”
“I wanted to let you know we’re pushing a few more features to the members previewing new system updates that you may be hearing about. Here are a few details on those features.”
- Blu-ray player supports 50 Hz video output for content recorded at 50 Hz. We’ll also be updating the Blu-ray Player app in the coming days to round out these improvements.
- Controller and headset adaptor firmware updates will reduce audio static and improve wireless connectivity.
- Silent reboot after system updates and system update on demand now available. After this update, if your console is in Instant On mode, the update will happen automatically and return to standby upon completion. This means you won’t need to power on your console after an update moving forward. If you want to take future updates when available without waiting for your console to do it on its own, we’ve added this option under system settings. It will only show as available when there is an update to take.
“We’re committed to delivering innovation through system updates,” added Nelson, “and on behalf of the Xbox team, I can’t say enough how integral fan feedback is to this process. Some features previewed won’t always make it to launch right away because we want to help ensure the best experience for our fans before pushing a new feature."
Major Nelson also said that the features may roll out over several days to “this audience.”
