Xbox One

The July update for Microsoft's Xbox One video game console is set to roll out in the coming days, according to both Major Nelsen and the Xbox One update history page. This July update, as we previously covered, contains a bunch of new features to further enhance the user experience, including a Snap mode for Xbox Live achievements.

As well as enabling gamers to snap their achievements to the side of the big screen, the July update also brings the ability to double-tap the Xbox button on a controller to bring up Snap Center, which can be utilized to launch Achievements and other snap-able apps, all without leaving the current running app or game. Xbox One owners can also select their preferred spoken language in the main settings area for better voice control compatibility. It operates in addition to the region selection, just in case you're a Brit residing in America.

Other improvements includes the following:

  • Content publishers can create digital bundle and disc compilation offerings in the future
  • 'Like' Game DVR clips
  • Blu-Ray Player improvements (BD-R/BD-RE)

Not a bad update. As noted above, expect to see this update roll out to your console shortly so be sure to keep an eye out.
