Xbox One to receive updates for battery power, storage, installs


The next-gen consoles such as Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One will be experiencing constant changes with a never-ending series of patches and updates over the next few years. With this in mind, it has been revealed that the Xbox One will have a major update from the software giant Microsoft on February 11, 2014.


A lengthy blog post was written by the chief Product officer at Microsoft, Marc Whitten, who explained about the Xbox One update. One of the highlights of the update includes the ability to manage users’ hard drive space by checking what is taking up how much space. Other updates include the reinstatement of the battery power indicator on the home screen for users’ controller, as well as the ability to sort incoming installs and dividing My Games and My Apps.

The console will also have new compatibility to use USB keyboards. Whitten also wrote about the continuous improvements to Kinect and has hinted that more surprises are coming with the future updates. There is also a possibility that more updates might be introduced on February 11, 2014. However, that has not been mentioned so far as the company might be waiting to see if they can roll out anything additional on time.

Another update has been hinted in the post from March 4, 2014, which is almost completely based on the launch of Titanfall scheduled for March 11, 2014.
