Chief Product Officer for Xbox, Marc Whitten, has just announced that Xbox One owners can expect a new system update on February 11th, bringing with it “many” new improvements. Here are the updates that Whitten highlighted:

Storage Management

“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.”

Battery Power Indicator

“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.”

USB Keyboard Support

The ability to use your USB keyboard with your Xbox One.


Whitten says that more details one the upcoming Xbox One update will be announced soon, but that there are “lots of behind-the-scenes updates for developers building apps and games for Xbox One, several new features we believe Xbox fans will love, stability and product updates to improve the customer experience, and continuous improvements to the quality of Kinect voice so commands become more fluid and responsive over time.”

Whitten also revealed that another Xbox One system update will arrive on March 4th in preparation for Titanfall later in the month. The update will contain “many new features and improvements, most significantly to our party and multiplayer systems.”


Which features do you most want to be included with the next Xbox One system update? Do you still think the matchmaking system needs work, and do you think that will be included in the update related to Titanfall next month?
