Microsoft has launched a new Xbox One system update today, rolling out a number of new features and interface tweaks in response to user feedback.

The Xbox One's August update reorganizes user activity feeds, adding text entry and expanded options for shared media. After applying the upgrade, players can purchase Xbox One content online and install it remotely without manually powering on the system, a system currently implemented in Sony's PlayStation 4. Media playback also gets a boost with 3D Blu-ray support and the ability to disable system notifications while watching video.

Other new features include notifications for low controller batteries and a "last seen" option that tracks friend activity. Microsoft plans to introduce additional improvements to the Xbox One's media player and other firmware components in the next system update due later this year.

Media player updates are long overdue tbh, its pretty awful and barebones as things currently stand. Also, they need to make it possible to upload game clips straight to youtube, and be able to pre-order and pre-download games off the marketplace.

Still early days but good to see MS committed to pumping out the updates. Just wish Sony was as proactive with the PS4 :(

What do you mean, Sony has pumped updates into the PS4, it received it's 3D support a couple of weeks ago, and the youtube direct upload from sharefactory etc is available now / in the next firmware update.
