While there's much to enjoy about the Xbox One, there's no doubt that there are some places in which the console could stand to improve some. In fact, not too long ago, we detailed
a few of the items we'd like to see improved on the Xbox One going forward. Today, Microsoft has revealed that two important updates will be delivered in the coming weeks.
First, there is a set of updates coming on February 11th
. Along with some general information regarding updates to assist with app creation as well as stability updates and Kinect improvements, several items were detailed that we believe readers here will be happy to see.
-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. We’ve separated My Games and My Apps 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 we’ve 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.
-And, you will be able to use your USB keyboard with your Xbox One.
In addition to that update, there is another updated schedule to land on March 4th
, in anticipation of Titanfall
. Once again, details are rather scarce, but Microsoft has promised the update will include "many new features and improvements, most significantly to our party and multiplayer systems
Microsoft promised that further details about these updates, and further planned improvements, will be revealed in the near future.
