Major Nelson, (aka Larry Hryb in real life) has informed the masses that this month’s Xbox One dashboard update is rolling out right now. Yes, right now – so switch on your consoles and let the background downloading magic happen!
It was confirmed that the console will only check for the update after it has been turned off if you have it on low power state (Xbox On etc). This means that the February update will be available the next time you turn your console off but only during off-peak hours in your local time, so you will get it over the weekend.
Here’s a run down of what to expect:
- 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. My Games and My Apps are now split 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 an 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.
- You will now be able to use your USB keyboard with your Xbox One.
Let us know in the comments box if you approve of the new update and don’t forget that better multiplayer and party features are due to hit from March before Titanfall releases on the 11th!
