Xbox One Gets Manual Updates and More

Last Updated: April 8, 2014


To follow up on our previous story about the new features in the future updates for the Xbox One, Microsoft’s Major Nelson has confirmed the 50 Hz Blu-ray output, firmware updates for the controller and the headset, and an enhanced update process.

Now, if you keep your Xbox One in Instant On mode, it will automatically download a new update and then return to Instant On mode when it’s finished. You can also manually select an available update from your system settings. This is a small change, but it’s something a lot of fans have wanted for a while now.

These features are still being previewed, but we’re sure they’ll reach the public as soon as any issues are cleared up.
