Xbox One users will be finding themselves in need of updating their new gen system later today as Microsoft pushes out the first of many system updates since launching on November 22nd.
While there aren't any major revisions in this patch, the update addresses a number of issues, all of which have been explicitly detailed below:
Addresses SmartGlass issues for some users when coming in and out of connected standby
Addresses multiplayer issues for some users when re-joining games
Addresses issues with inconsistent notifications for some users
Addresses dashboard performance for some users
Offers improvements for Xbox One’s TV, system update, and content update services for scaling over time
Updated wireless networking driver to improve connectivity issues for some users
According to to Xbox Live program director Larry Hryb, the update will download in the background as early as 11AM AEST, though it could be varied for each individual console. Once the system has downloaded the update, it will power down and require a manual boot to turn back on.
After you turn your Xbox One back on, the update will take two to five minutes to install. You’ll see the Xbox logo on a green screen while this is happening, so don't be alarmed that it has frozen. Those not using the low power state will have to trigger the update manually, you can manually download and apply this update starting on Thursday, December 12 at 10AM AEST.
