By continuously adding features, content, and capabilities, Xbox One keeps getting better. Updates from Xbox Live will happen in the background while you enjoy your favorite game. Sign in to any Xbox One to see your home screen and play your digital games. Your digital content, profile, and saves go where you go. Xbox One was built by gamers, for gamers.
Xbox One’s revolutionary architecture and the combination of its CPU, GPU, and ESRAM create the perfect balance of power and performance.
The best gaming controller just got better with 40 technology innovations, including new Impulse Triggers and streamlined D-pad.
Kinect is more precise, more responsive, and more intuitive on Xbox One, with an improved field of view, an all-new multi-microphone array, and more.
Xbox One wakes up instantly when you say “Xbox on,” pauses games right where you left off, and updates and downloads content behind the scenes.
New this month is the #1 feature request in the Friends & Parties area on the Xbox Feedback site “Add audio message …” Users will be able to compose and play back Voice messages in the Messages snap app on Xbox One. Additionally, Voice Messages can be exchanged between Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles.
Recently we have added additional icons and notifications within the party chat experience so you can see everyone’s connection status and their microphone status. This month, party chat is being improved by providing troubleshooting guidance when you’re having difficulty connecting to a party or where you can’t be heard.
Party Chat is being enhanced through dedicated party chat relay servers. This change will enable Xbox One owners with a Strict or Moderate NAT that is blocking party chat due to their home network settings to automatically connect to a dedicated server that will act as a relay to provide a reliable party chat experience. Moving forward, you should not see the dreaded “Network limitations” x807D0106 error when attempting to establish a Party Chat.
In February, we introduced Game hubs and provided the ability to follow a game or games. On the game’s activity feed, game developers can share interesting content with anyone who follows the game. You’ll be the first to get news on upcoming updates and DLC, featured game clips and trailers, behind the scenes content and more. All the news about your favourite games is delivered right to your console. Additionally, if you choose to follow a game from a Game hub, the game’s activity feed content gets incorporated into your activity feed. With this update you can now more quickly access a Game hub, from an activity feed post, in that each post has a link back to the Game hub.
With this preview release, you can now see a 2nd line of text that explains why you received a specific achievement.
The “Staff Picks” are now more personalised based on your recent game activity.
