Upcoming Xbox One Update Will Let You Turn Off the Startup Sound

No word yet on when the update will arrive.


Microsoft has announced that a future Xbox One update will let you turn off the console's startup sound.

Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb announced the future feature on Twitter, also releasing images of what the new option will look like from the menu screen (via DualShockers).

"We've heard feedback re: the Xbox One startup chime," Major Nelson said.

As you can see in the images, you will have the option of making it chime only when you turn the console on via voice or power button, in addition to turning it completely off.

There is no word yet on when the update that introduces this feature will be delivered. The Xbox One's newest update added support for background music, among other things.
