Xbox One system updates to add new features, party overhaul planned



May 4, 2013
Xbox One will be given two updates this spring, Microsoft has revealed.

Starting next week (February 11), an update will introduce the ability to see and manage storage space, a power indicator to check battery life on a controller, and USB keyboard support.

It will also provide better system stability, improvements for Kinect voice commands and behind-the-scenes updates for developers building apps and games for the console.

Additional new features for the February 11 update will be revealed soon.

Meanwhile, a further update on March 4 will introduce a new party and multiplayer system in time for Titanfall's release later that month.

"We've also been busy listening to your feedback and working hard to incorporate it into Xbox One as soon as possible," said chief product officer Marc Whitten.
"We remain incredibly energized and we are aggressively working to make Xbox One better, faster than ever before."

Xbox One was recently reported to see a cheaper model this year, which has since been denied by Microsoft.

Rumoured releases this year include a Halo 2 remake and Forza Horizon 2.

Meanwhile, news on Xbox One's free Games with Gold will be coming soon.
