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.
