    Default Multiplayer and Party updates for XBOX ONE - March

    Since we first launched Xbox One, we have been thrilled to see our fans spending millions of hours on Xbox Live. Your enthusiasm reinforces our commitment to making Xbox One and Xbox Live the best place for gamers and entertainment fans.This week marks a big week for Xbox One as we will start to roll out our first product update for Xbox One. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], this update offers many new improvements – including lots of behind-the-scenes updates for developers building apps and games for Xbox One, several new features we believe Xbox fans will love, stability and product updates to improve the customer experience, and continuous improvements to the quality of Kinect voice so commands become more fluid and responsive over time. This is step one on our journey and commitment to deliver continuous innovation to Xbox One customers.

    Xbox One is a platform designed to offer the best games and entertainment experience and we are committed to delivering more and more features to our customers. While we’re thrilled to launch the February update this week, we’re already looking ahead to March. We’ve prided ourselves on having the best multiplayer service for Xbox 360 and we’ve listened to your feedback about the features you want to see on Xbox One and Xbox Live. We’ve heard your feedback and the team has been working overtime to deliver updates that will significantly improve the multiplayer and party experience on Xbox One. Here are more details on what’s coming for parties and multiplayer in March:


    • Get to your friends list faster. The friends list will be front and center on the homepage of the Friends app. Click the Social tile on Home, or say “Xbox, go to Friends” to see who’s online and what they’re up to. From there you can quickly send messages and get into a party.
    • Party chat will be turned on by default. When you party up, chat audio will be turned on by default.
    • Chat with friends playing different games. Partychat will be separated from people playing your game, so you can chat with your friends who are online or you can chat with everyone playing the game.
    • We’re adding an “Invite friends to game” option to your multiplayer titles moving forward. Similar to Xbox 360 titles, this will appear inside a games’ menu and offer a simple and quicker way to set up your multiplayer battles. Selecting “Invite friends” will let you invite friends to your game and party.
    • We’re adding “Recent Players.” This is a simple list that shows you Xbox Live members you’ve recently played with, making it easier to stay in touch with people, or add new friends after your multiplayer battles.


    Our March Xbox One system update will start rolling out in early March. We’re excited to get these multiplayer and party improvements out in time for the March 11 launch of “Titanfall,” the highly anticipated team-based online multiplayer game.

    The March update includes many more great features. The improvements to multiplayer and parties are just a few of the features that will be included, and we’ll continue to share more details in the days and weeks ahead, including in-depth videos so you’re all ready to take advantage of the new features in March. We’re lucky to have a passionate community that shares feedback. Thanks for helping us make Xbox One even better.

    Old news everyone is already on it, think I downloaded the beta of the next one last night:

    According to Gamepur and this Reddit thread, Microsoft has notified selected Xbox One owners that an Xbox One preview firmware update will roll out in the next few days. The message also lists what changes users can expect in the next update, and some of them are ones we've been hankering for for quite some time now. Here's the full list courtesy of Gamepur:



    - Game and app saves and updates. A game save progress bar will show you the status of your game saves. You will also be able to easily tell what games and apps are being updated or have been updated recently.
    - Friends improvements. Notifications will be added to see when favorites and friends sign in to Xbox Live. This actually was one of the most frequently requested features from the first preview wave and we made it a priority to include it in the April update. Also, friends who are in multiplayer will be identified in the friends list. We'll also add the ability to view friends' most popular apps.
    - Blu-ray 50 Hz video output support for content recorded at 50 Hz will resolve video playback issues some Xbox Live members in Europe are experiencing.
    - Kinect voice and motion improvements will continue to fine tune the quality and reliability of Xbox One commands.
    - Improved Game DVR video quality through compression algorithm improvements.
    - Updates to Xbox One device management to address issues controlling TVs, set top boxes, and receivers that our customers have reported.
    - New audio settings to tune how much volume is lowered when Kinect is used in communications.

    Friend Notifications, eh? Huzzah! Unfortunately though, there's still no sign of external HDD support, but if Microsoft are making a habit of monthly updates, perhaps we won't have too much longer to wait.
