  • New “Friends” section – The new Friends section has been available for a few early access Preview members and we’re expanding it to everyone enrolled in the Preview program. The new Friends section enables users to see at a glance what’s going on with their friends. They can stay up-to-date with their current activities, the most popular games their friends are playing, and a Gamerscore leaderboard to see who has improved their Gamerscore over the last 30 days.
  • Snap Center – Some of gamers’ favorite features in the Xbox 360 guide, are coming to Xbox One in a way that’s now truly be side-by-side with games. Messages, friends, parties, and achievements will all be available in the new Snap Center, providing a seamless way to switch back and forth without having to leave a game.
  • Threaded MessagesKeeping gamers in their games while they multitask has been a huge focus. The new Messages app features threaded messages with the full conversation history – including embedded links to Game DVR clips – that can be viewed without interrupting gameplay.
  • Media PlayerA new app will be available soon that enables users to play media files from either an attached USB device or from a network connected home media server that supports DLNA protocols. The preview version of the Media Player app will initially only support USB devices, with DLNA support coming soon. Xbox One will support more formats than Xbox 360, including support for dozens of new file formats like mpeg 2 TS, animated gifs and mkv which will be added by the end of the year. See below for additional file formKats.
  • Xbox One Digital TV Tuner –Announced last week, this new accessory will enter a limited preview program in Europe (UK, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain), in advance of its retail launch beginning in October.
  • Stream TV to SmartGlass Launching first in markets receiving the Xbox Digital TV Tuner, Xbox One owners will be able to stream their TV across their home network to their smartphones and tablets using the Xbox SmartGlass app. They can also pause, play and rewind as well as change channels, without interrupting gameplay on the Xbox One. This will work for SmartGlass apps on Windows, iOS, and Android.
  • Boot to TVNow Xbox One owners will be able to set their console to boot directly to television when coming out of connected standby.
  • Live TV mini guide For markets where OneGuide is available, a new mini guide on the bottom of the screen will display details about the TV content that is currently playing. Users can quickly change channels and see what’s on other channels, while still watching TV.

Good update I guess for those that would use it. But none of that applies to me

#11 Edited by tymeservesfate (1979 posts) -

@ghostwarrior786: wow....smh

Anyway, there's new info in there. Try watching it all the way through before saying its old.

@tymeservesfate: Hell yes. I can hook up my IPod to my XB1 and stream the music through my home theater stereo system. I can also post my pictures from my camera to my XB1 and do a slide show with music in the background. Sweet. Damn, I need to download SmartGlass to my IPad. Good stuff.

More stuff that would have been there if the XB1 launched on the date it was suppose to (Sept 2014). That's pretty much the only reason for all these updates. XB1 launched way early. So did the PS4.

@blackace:

Or you can just hook your iPod directly to your receiver?

Don't think I can download those file or pictures/videos into my receiver.

Probably not, which is why I didn't mention it!

Yes!! Finally I could watch TV, text and drive at the same time!!

All this while my real-estate gameplay screen is reduced for snap-in chat, and more CPU + GPU is reserved so I could enjoy stuttering 30 fps sub HD gameplay!!

Microsoft you READ MY MIND!!!

Please please.. next, I want to run a web server and encode video in the background while playing a game!!

Finally, some of these console features were much needed, especially since the 360 had some of em at launch!

Not a single thing of that is anything I find "good" or special lol. Never going to get an Xbox One. NEVER EVER.

Most publisher don't know how to utilize the consoles to the fullest potential.

Anyways, Xbox One clearly has better features than the PS4.

All day everyday, my tv runs through the xbox, my wife and kids use it and it comes in handy when we can't find the remote. I also stream movies to it from my mac, watch the free anime shows (fairy tale) and watching game conferences has been better than watching them on twitch and youtube.
