Microsoft rolling out system update for Xbox One, includes battery indicator, storage monitor and USB keyboard support


Microsoft have begun rolling out the first of two updates with the second to come in March. The February update for the Xbox One will includes a Controller battery indicator, Storage monitor and a somewhat redesigned My games & apps section. The update roll out begins now and we have already gotten it here in Ireland, so users in most regions should begun to have the update install. It will install automatically first for those who have their Xbox One set to standby off status which allows for updates. Users who have their Xbox set to completely shutoff will have to wait until the Update becomes mandatory.

Below are all of the changes included with the update.

New/updated Features
  • Update to My Game & Apps to allow sorting of games and application lists, and separate queue lists for games, applications and installs
  • Ability to delete game and application save data
  • Improved installation and DLC management
