Xbox One system update planned for February 11th


Marc Whitten, Chief Product Officer at Microsoft, unveiled today two new updates planned for the Xbox One for February and March. While the details about the March update are scarce and only provide details about ‘improving the party and multiplayer systems’ (WHOO HOO!), he did release more concrete information about the February patch.

Per Marc Whitten:

Some of the features you can expect to see on February 11 include:

  • The ability to see and manage your storage space. With this update, you will find it easy to find how much space your content takes up and better manage your content. You can also control your install lineup and more easily manage your download queue. We’ve separated My Games and My Apps into separate lists, so you can easily create separate queues for both. Now you can pick the order in which you want your content to load and we’ve added a boot progress indicator so you can better track updates while they load.
  • The battery power indicator is back! You can see it right on the home screen, so you can easily track how much battery life is left on your controller.
  • And, you will be able to use your USB keyboard with your Xbox One.

They will release more information about the update as the date gets closer and also stated that a few surprises are in store for the patch release.

This is nothing but good news for Xbox One owners and shows Microsoft’s willingness to change features and listen to community feedback.
