Xbox One News: Major Nelson reveals that Xbox One’s first system update will be available beginning later today.



Xbox One

Xbox One has been on the market for a few weeks now and later today we will be receiving an update which will usher in some improvements to some of the launch issues people have been having. At approximately 5pm pacific today, an update will be sent out, however, it will work a bit different then you might be used to if you are used to the Xbox 360 update process. According to Major Nelson’s blog, this is what you can expect:

If you are using the Xbox One “Instant On” (the low power state that allows you to instantly power up your console by saying “Xbox On”), your console automatically checks for updates when you turn it off. Once the update is available the following will happen:

  • Your console will automatically download the update after you turn it off. Once the update has been downloaded in the background, your console will power completely down. Please note: You will need to manually power your console back on after the update has been downloaded. Because the update will power your console completely down, the “Xbox On” voice command won’t be available until after the update is fully installed.

  • When you turn the console on you’ll see the update being applied. After that, your Xbox One will reboot. You’ll know the update is installing when you see the Xbox logo on the green background. This can take anywhere from 2-5 minutes. Once the update has finished installing, you’ll boot to the Home screen and you’re all set.

  • Don’t worry, if you are out of town for the holidays, your console also does regular checks for updates and will download it in the background even if you have not used your Xbox One in a couple of days.


  • If you are not using the Xbox One “Instant On” feature, you will be required to download and apply this update after Thursday, December 12th at 4pm, pacific. This new system update for Xbox One will address the following:

  • Addresses SmartGlass issues for some users when coming in and out of connected standby

  • Addresses multiplayer issues for some users when re-joining games

  • Addresses issues with inconsistent notifications for some users

  • Addresses dashboard performance for some users

  • Offers improvements for Xbox One’s TV, system update and content update services for scaling over time

  • Updated wireless networking driver to improve connectivity issues for some users


  • In addition to this new update Major Nelson has stated that they have “quite a few” updates planned for 2014 based on community feedback. Have you had any of these problems with Xbox One? Tell us about your experiences below.
