Microsoft’s Major Nelson has tweeted details regarding a much awaited upcoming Xbox One firmware. Linking to his official blog, Nelson revealed that Xbox One firmare will feature 50Hz Blu-ray support, controller and headset adapter, firmware updates and option to update the console automatically when in stand-by mode.
Nelson wrote: “We’re committed to delivering innovation through system updates, and on behalf of the Xbox team, I can’t say enough how integral fan feedback is to this process.”
About the release date of this firmware, Nelson tweeted: “I’ll let you know when the next Xbox One System Update is available…no firm date yet.”
Adding on his blog, he wrote: “Some features previewed won’t always make it to launch right away because we want to help ensure the best experience for our fans before pushing a new feature. Also, these features may roll out over several days to this audience.”
You can read the changelog below.
- Blu-ray player supports 50 Hz video output for content recorded at 50 Hz. We’ll also be updating the Blu-ray Player app in the coming days to round out these improvements.
- Controller and headset adaptor firmware updates will reduce audio static and improve wireless connectivity.
- Silent reboot after system updates and system update on demand now available. After this update, if your console is in Instant On mode, the update will happen automatically and return to standby upon completion. This means you won’t need to power on your console after an update moving forward. If you want to take future updates when available without waiting for your console to do it on its own, we’ve added this option under system settings. It will only show as available when there is an update to take.
Here is what the button looks like,which will let Xbox One owners check to see if there is a new Xbox One system update available.
