Microsoft's next system update for the Xbox One, due for release in July for everyone who owns the console, will add the previously announced Snap mode for Xbox Live game achievements as part of its feature set.

The update, which will be released in an early beta form to a few Xbox One testers later this month, will also allow users to double tap on the controller to bring up the console's Snap Center that has all of its snap-based apps. If a user is already using an app in Snap mode, a double tap on the controller will switch in between a game and the snapped app.

Residents in New Zealand, Ireland and Austria will be able to use English or German voice commands, via the Kinect sensor, as part of the July system update. Indeed, anyone in an English speaking country will be able to choose from the console's English language options after installing next month's update.

It will also let users 'Like' any Game DVR clips, along with activity feed items, via the Xbox One SmartGlass apps. Finally, Microsoft says, "We're doing some work now so that publishers will have options for great digital bundle and disc compilation offerings in the future. As we test this feature, we'll be seeing more flexible combinations of game titles and game content."

If you own an Xbox One, what do you think of Microsoft's plans for the July system update and do you like the fact that the company has been adding lots of new features to the console on a monthly basis?
