Microsoft Reveals Details On October System Update
October’s Xbox One system update is available to download now, Microsoft has announced.
The new firmware brings a swathe of updated features, including a redesigned Snap Centre that enables quick access to revamped Friends, Achievements, Party, Messages and Game DVR apps.
Also included is a new quick-launch menu, making it easier to jump between games and apps, recording gameplay and snap and unsnap apps.
Alongside these functionality tweaks are some more exciting enhancements. If you’ve lost your Xbox One controller you can now activate its vibrate function to find it around the room. Pretty pointless but a nice addition nonetheless.
However, our favourite new feature is the update to the media player than supports DLNA steaming and, more exciting, .mkv file playback. Get those HD movies at the ready!
