Social and Mobile features heat up this summer with next Xbox One update

Larry Hryb, Xbox Live's Major Nelson, chats with Richard Irving from the Xbox Engineering team to discuss the updates coming in August. New updates include the ability to Like, Share and Comment on your Activity Feed.

Also coming in August is Mobile Purchase, where you can use Xbox One SmartGlass and the web to purchase Games and Add Ons with the option to have them download immediately to your Home console. (Xbox One)

I like it. now give me my pre order and pre load option

The updates are amazing!
XB1_PS4  +   105d ago
The updates are one of the best parts about owning an XB1 at the moment. They're taking the input, and making progress. The new achievement snap feature is quickly turning into my most used feature.

xbox got bluray 3d faster than PS4. WAttt!!
Mr Pumblechook  +   105d ago
Yes the updates are regular but a part of that is including features already on PlayStation 4 including Activity Feed. I want to see Microsoft develop their own unique features.

I love the new achievement leaderboard wish they done that a lot sooner and finally 3-D

@Pumblechoock
The Activity Feed has been present since launch for the X1. The comment and like functions are new.

@Gozer. I don't have an Xbone yet so thanks for clarifying that.
DLConspiracy  +   105d ago
Yeah I think these are great. They are making it more social than it already is. I love it.
4Sh0w  +   104d ago
Damm microsoft are doing an excellent job supporting their console since launch. They have been very responsive when it comes to acting on feedback. I like it, my X1 has really taken over my living room.

This. I struggle to understand why that's not on there already. It seems painfully obvious to me that it should be there. I would've given them at least $180 for Sunset Overdrive, Halo, and Destiny already... If my attention sways to another game, they might not get that money from me.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   105d ago
One of THE most significant updates since the March update.
nicksetzer1  +   105d ago
I gotta say, every single part of this update looks amazing, and soo much of it was directly from user feedback which is great that they are listening. The new leadership (no don, no balmer, etc) and direction that MS has taken is really impressive, especially in such a short time.

@pumblechook ps 4 has features? like what name them please. i have been using mine wrong.
The_Infected  +   105d ago
This is one great thing about Microsoft they really do a great job with the dashboard updates. I really like all these new features. The new leaderboards on the dashboard are great.

AngelicIceDiamond  +   105d ago
The leaderboards on the dashboard is very nice feature.

I also find it funny because Peter Moliuneux didn't want the new consoles to focus on "a new way to integrate Facebook on console"

Like, comment, and send game clips to friends sounds very facebooky to me lol hes mad.

Peter probably wants an indie store front more than anything that's probably why hes been complaining.
Dontworrybhappy  +   104d ago
Riiiight. Totes ma gotes want the preload feature.
XiSasukeUchiha  +   105d ago
Enjoying it !
TRD4L1fe  +   105d ago
no your not, i strongly believe you dont even own an XB1
nicksetzer1  +   105d ago
I don't think he owns any next gen consoles at all, to be perfectly honest.
JBSleek  +   105d ago
Also there is finally 3D bluray playback.
SlavisH2  +   105d ago
Really?
JBSleek  +   105d ago
Yes. If you want to know all the feature coming in August.

Volkama  +   105d ago
Oh! I can finally say farewell to my PS3!

Well, when I get my xbox fixed anyway.
Bonkerz  +   105d ago
Damn good update, MS! The mobile ordering, the friends list thing looks awesome way better then it was. 3D support is quite cool i know alot of people been asking for it. A lot of nice features, the console truly just gets better every month. So does this verify that preloading, preordering is coming next month? Im sure they are gonna wanna test it before launching it since we already know its definitely coming before sunset overdrive.
SteamPowered  +   105d ago
I hope MS takes a page from the Steam App. You can purchase and download games right to your PC and have them ready by the time you get home. You can also chat your friends on the Steam App. This is so handy and I would love being able to remotely download my new purchases for consoles.
Volkama  +   105d ago
I want steam's wish list. And prices obviously, but that's less likely :-(

KNWS  +   105d ago
Best month update for a while.
xxx_Solid_Snake_xxx  +   105d ago
finally ..I can download remotely.... nice update
HugoDrax  +   105d ago
Exactly! one of my personal requested features. Good to see that MS is taking the customer feedback and implementing the most requested features ASAP.

Now when's DIGITAL GAME SHARING coming back? :-), I will jump for joy when that feature is implemented. As for now keep the updates coming.
Ksar  +   105d ago
XONE got 3D bluray support before PS4. impressive
Cherchez La Ghost  +   105d ago
SAAY WHAAAT?!!! #3Dbluray
IrishSt0ner  +   105d ago
Awesome guna try this out tonight :)
gamertk421  +   105d ago
Update for August, not quite out yet.
Volkama  +   105d ago
Got my notification message stating I will have the update within a few days.

I'm on the Xbox support live chat with "Antoinette" right now arranging a repair for my Xbox disc drive so I can actually use the 3D blu-ray playback :|

And I tell you, the conversation is painful. Actually physically hurts.

Yea jumped the gun a bit there, thought the preview was rolling out.

@Volkama - Coincidentally I'm waiting on EA live chat right now, 45mins still not connected, my lack of conversation is getting painful lol
AngelicIceDiamond  +   105d ago
Here's hoping the September updates brings back Themes.
HaydenJameSmith  +   105d ago
oh yeah, if the custom UI was anything like this it'd be awesome:

I would love it if there were better implementation of Avatars too...

DLConspiracy  +   105d ago
Yeah themes would be really nice. I anxiously await that. I think they are just doing so much for the look of it they may be waiting.
Ihatetrolls76  +   105d ago
Finally 3D and the low battery indicator nice. I have been waiting for 3D support from day one since I have a big collection of 3D movies and now I can get rid of my 3D bluray player and make some more room on my shelf.
Rocky5  +   105d ago
Ah pish, I just spend £130 on a fancy bluray player & a week later there enabling it :-/

Wonder if I can return it :-/
Dontworrybhappy  +   104d ago
Lol that sucks man. You can probably return though.
jcole97  +   105d ago
Awesome update! Is he saying the friends update is coming later?
Dothraki  +   105d ago
Loving all the new updates, ive been on the fence about going ps4 (i can only afford to own one console) and with all the news about microsofts restructuring and money poured into games, i think they may do very well for themselves and for us as gamers. Id have loved to have played some of those sweet looking ps4 exclusives, and i really hope Microsoft have more up their sleeves than halo and gears this gen. Its Forza that's keeping me in check at the monent.

The 3D fad peaked 3 years ago. Congratulations MS for finally supporting it.

I hope Sony doesn't waste time on it.
christocolus  +   105d ago
Lol. Is that all you had to say? You guys amaze me. It was one of the most requested features by xbox one owners. So why do you even care if its a fad or not?you obviously don't own the console&MS didn't add the feature cos of you.

OT: great job MS.

I know right, its not like Sony have made up a marketing campaign to sell you 3D products and services .. oh wait
Dontworrybhappy  +   104d ago
So... you follow fads?
kurruptor  +   104d ago
No. 3d is stupid. I'm just making fun of MS for being 4 years late.
FayZ_  +   105d ago
SHARE VIDEO GAME CLIPS BY MESSAGE OMG MS IS AWESOME AT SOFTWARE!!! THANK YOU i will keep my xbone now lol
kennyg3739  +   105d ago
Finally, 3D
Ginesis  +   105d ago
This is what I figured XBL could potentially become...its own social network platform. I'm excited at what this could potentially do! Here's an idea, bring the ability to have clubs or groups with people who have shared interest in games.

hasj1990  +   105d ago
And me PS4 only owner, is still waiting for Sony to pull their finger out and give us the ability to use external HDDs.

There must be some conspiracy here, PS3 was loaded with so many multimedia features, its unbelievable they just left it all out of PS4.

And so did Microsoft with the XB1, but atleast they have now added it, c'mon Sony!

Outstanding..
Gamer666  +   105d ago
Three consecutive months of very strong updates...

June = External HDD
July = Achievements App
August = 3D Blue-Ray

MS is doing a very impressive job at adding features.

When the update happens, my stand alone blue-ray players go in the garbage!
DJustinUNCHAIND  +   104d ago
Xbox has the best post-launch support I've ever seen.
LAWSON72  +   104d ago
I am very happy with these updates but I want more radio apps with ability to play them in background, DLNA, and button shortcuts for friends list (like the 360).

Eventually it would be nice to see them attempt sharing digital library and Xbox 360 originals.
HugoDrax  +   104d ago
Regarding DLNA support, my work around is to just upload my video/audio files to my ONEDRIVE account. Then watch my films and listen to music from the ONEDRIVE App on my xbox one.
LAWSON72  +   103d ago
My problem with this is wasting my network bandwidth. I have a pretty great cap but still sometimes I manage to get pretty close to it
HugoDrax  +   103d ago
@LAWSON72

That's understandable! My brother has the same issue, and he uses upwards to 350-450 GB of DATA a month. I'm not exaggerating either, he literally uses that much data and he is complaining about better DLNA support as well.
