Xbox One update for February revealed


The Xbox One update for February has been detailed, bringing improvements to Party Chat, more OneGuide features and more dashboard personalisation.

One of the more major changes is Game Hubs, which provides developer updates, DLC, news, friend activity, etc for every game. This could be similar to PS4, where each game has its own section, making it easy to find DLC and other information about the game.



Here's what's new (subject to change as Microsoft has withdrawn blog post)

Controller improvements

- Quick Connect: Previously, controller connections to Xbox One took approximately four-to-five seconds when powering on a controller. Now, it will only take about two seconds.

- Stability improvements: The update also provides a number of fixes that address some of the controller disconnect issues reported by Xbox One owners.

Game hubs 

To get to the game hub for your favourite game, find a game in your pins, recently played list, or My games and apps, then press the Menu button and select View game hub. You can also search for any game in the Xbox Store and click on the Game Hub tile from the game’s store page.

Party chat updates

- Chat connection status
- Improved connectivity between multiple participants with Strict or Moderate NATs
- Game and party invitations
- Performance improvements

Custom backgrounds and tile transparency

TV updates

- TV trending in OneGuide
- Live TV trending (new countries) – France, Germany, Brazil and Mexico
- Improved control of TVs, set-top boxes and audio/video receivers
- “Trick play” with Xbox One Digital TV Tuner – Xbox One Digital TV Tuner owners in supported countries (United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Spain) are now able to see video frames when fast-forwarding or rewinding paused TV on Xbox One consoles.
- Live TV streaming on Windows Phone and Android – Live TV streaming on Windows Phone and Android devices for Xbox One Digital TV Tuner owners has been added in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
