Xbox One NXOE update now rolling out worldwide

The New Xbox One Experience update is now rolling out to Microsoft's latest console, clocking in at 1.1GB. If you've selected the Instant-on option on your console, the update will download automatically in the background. Else, you'll have to manually head into Settings – System – Update Console to initiate the download.

If you're not willing to install the update right away, Microsoft has mentioned that it will roll out the new interface as a mandatory update on November 23. The update brings a new UI that's twice as fast, along with a laundry list of features and improvements, most notably backwards compatibility.

As a reminder, Xbox 360 backwards compatibility will go live at 12:01PM PT, 3PM ET, 8PM GMT, or 1:30AM IST on Friday.
