The April update for the Xbox One hasn’t been released to the public yet, but participants in the Xbox One beta program have already received it. According to NeoGAF user Rvaisse, the update will include several fixes to existing issues, such as Blu-ray errors and Kinect problems, a controller firmware update, and additional features, including:

  • Game save progress bar will now display when syncing cloud game saves.
  • 50Hz Blu-ray player support for content recorded at 50Hz.
  • Improved GameDVR video quality.
  • Online friends notification, including the ability to filter notifications to all friends, favorites only, or disable friends online notifications altogether.
  • *NEW FEATURE* Requested by the update preview community: Manually install available updates. If a new system update is detected as available, a button will appear under Settings, System that will display “Apply Available System Update.” Note: this feature is being enabled after this current update completes installation. This feature will be available to preview when the next update is made available.
  • *NEW FEATURE* A new ability to automatically redeem a license code from console messages. For future console messages that include a 5×5 license code, a new option will appear to allow you to automatically redeem the license, versus having to copy and paste the license code.

People in the beta are still encountering a few issues with the new update, but Microsoft is working to fix all of the issues. What do you think of the new features being added? Are you looking forward to this update?
