This is handy. You know how the Xbox One takes a while to boot up and there’s no obvious indication that it’s working? The August update is gonna fix that.
According to preview testers, the boot screen will add a few on-screen indications that all is working properly, including animated dots (shown below) and - possibly - a pulsing logo.
Speaking on Reddit, one user said, "We finally have a way to know our Xbox isn't frozen on bootup screen.” Another added, "I believe the green 'X' in the logo pulsed, but it was an extremely subtle effect.”
Yesterday it was reported that Microsoft currently has Xbox One updates played all the way through to October. Read more about that through here. And here's the full list of August updates and improvements.
