Microsoft has confirmed the first of “several” system updates for the Xbox One, this first update being the first major one the system has seen since its launch last fall.
On February 11th, the update will feature many new improvements, including a behind the scenes update for developers that are building games and apps for the platform, as well as “several new features.”
Here’s a snippet of some of the changes coming with the February update:
- 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.
The next update is planned for March 4th, and you can expect even more features and improvements with that one.
