New Xbox One firmware update gets it ready for the big Windows 10 UI experience

Microsoft is rolling out a small firmware update for the Xbox One to all owners of the console. The update includes some small fixes to the Xbox One's party chat feature, but its main mission is to prepare the console for its big update later this year, which will include a Windows 10-based user experience.

The version number for the firmware update is 6.2.13326.0. Microsoft says:

"The Xbox team is hard at work building and fine tuning the new Xbox One user experience that will be unveiled to the preview community this Fall. This update will help us to get your console ready to receive the new experience."

Members of the Xbox One Preview Program are expected to test the Windows 10 Xbox One update sometime in September, before it is released for all Xbox One owners in November.
