Microsoft has begun rolling out previews of Xbox One’s April update, following the successful implementation ofMarch’s updatewhich brought improvements to party chat, friends lists and more.
This round of previews for the latest Xbox One update will run for longer than the March preview, and will allow users to sample the following improvements and additions to the console:
- Game and app saves and updates– A game save progress bar will show you the status of your game saves. You will also be able to easily tell what games and apps are being updated or have been updated recently.
- Friends improvements– Notifications will be added to see when favorites and friends sign in to Xbox Live. This actually was one of the most frequently requested features from the first preview wave and we made it a priority to include it in the April update. Also, friends who are in multiplayer will be identified in the friends list. We’ll also add the ability to view friends’ most popular apps.
- Blu-ray 50 Hz video output support– for content recorded at 50 Hz will resolve video playback issues some Xbox Live members in Europe are experiencing.
