Xbox One April system update rolling out now
New features, including notifications, being beamed into Xbox One units today.
The Xbox One system update for April is in the process of being rolled out to all consoles now, Microsoft has said.
The update should beam itself into your console over the next few hours, provided you're connected to the Internet and your provider isn't messing up. Chief among the new features is that friends notifications have returned: you'll be able to see when your pals sign into Xbox Live, and when they start playing games.
There's also new progress bars that show you the status of apps and game saves, and an easier way of seeing what games and apps have most recently been updated.
Another new feature for the console is that it can now reboot itself after system updates, and there's an option for users to manually search for, and install, new updates when available.
50Hz Blu-ray output has also been added, alongside other improvements to GameDVR and Kinect.
