When Xbox updates arrive, they typically roll out in waves.

If your console is set to download updates automatically, it should happen within the next day or two after the updates have been announced. However, if you want to check for updates manually, here's how to do it.

  1. Tap the Xbox logo button on your controller. Or, if you're using a Kinect just say "Xbox, go to settings" and skip to step #3.
  2. Select Settings. It is the gear icon.
  3. Select All Settings.
  4. Select System.
  5. Select Console Info & Updates. Then it will inform you if there's an update available.
