The July update has just been released for all members in the preview program and the video below shows all the new features in action
Cool feature though!
I know it's just a little thing, but the one thing I hate and can't stand is the fact that everything needs to load first. I mean you open a message, view your friends list.. it's loading screens even though it's for a second or less, it just grinds on me. anyway, will see what else they can bring with this update.
Smh....yet I agree.
The long install times need to be fixed. Ryse took me 3 1/2 hours from inserting the disc till I could play it
"3 1/2 hours" yeah, uh no. Lie harder bro. If your install for that game even took '1' hour, something is wrong with your Xbox One....or You.
Then it must be my system. When I talked with Microsoft they said it was normal.
Ryse took about an hour for me to install from disc. It is the only disc game I have, so not really anything to reference it against. But Ryse is a pretty big game, and blu-ray is a pretty slow media format. They cannot increase the read speed so big games are just gonna take a long time to install. The only reason I bought Ryse on disc was so that I had something to play straight away when I set up the XBox. 1 hour install was not what I was looking for! I am sure both Sony and MS will continue to allow playing during installation and they will get better at it, but some games lend themselves better to it than others.
It's actually possible it took that long. But you would have to have a horrible internet connection. A lot of times the XBO has horrible install times because it's actually installing the updates at the same time. For the fastest installs disconnect the console from the internet before installing the game.
Was probably downloading and installing the update first before the game. If your internet speed is slow then its possible it could take that long if not longer. Without updating first install time are typically much shorter. Mine average anywhere from 15 mins to 30 mins before I can start the game
I hate the fact you can't return the main screen back to full screen without backing out to the "desktop" first :(
press B while snap mode is highlighted
Sounds like you do not have one or you are not to good at using tech! Pick one
Multi-apps running at the same screen should be a standard feature this gen.
I didn't know you could bring up IE to help you with the achievements, that's pretty cool
danowat + 21m ago I hate the fact you can't return the main screen back to full screen without backing out to the "desktop" first :( just say xbox unsnap
I should have said using the controller, rather than voice controls
Like dude said above.. Hit b if the snapped screen is in focus.. Or double tap the Xbox button to switch focus if it isnt
You don't have to use the "xbox unsnap" voice command if you don't want to.. Just press "B" from within the snapped app and the app will close.. It's literally just one button press to unsnap an app and to return the main app to full screen..
Apparently 'Threes' is coming to XB1. I wouldn't care that much accept they have apparently figured out how to have it run in the snapped app (games are usually only on the full screen) so you can play it in the small window while you are watching something else.
Thanks for that, I'll give it a try tonight :D
Really handy, I've already been using it a lot... it completely fixes the horrible system they had from launch, with 'progress', and a few button presses to read/watch guides.
That's such a great and useful feature. I think as time goes by ppl will start to appreciate what the xb1 can do besides games, everyone is caught up on resolution right now... I think ms is going to do some truly amazing things with the os, the damn thing has it's own dedicated side! I'm really bored of the bland interface though, those tiles have to go... No reason why I can't completely customize my very own interface. We have seen some cool videos on it already!
