The latest Xbox One system update is rolling out worldwide right now. Want to know which new features will be coming to your console shortly?

Whilst last month saw us get some cracking friend notifications and the suchlike, this months update will be a slightly less exciting affair with a sound mixer being the biggest addition.

The main features of the next update are as follows:

  • Sound Mixer for Apps with Snap and Volume Controls When Using Kinect with Chat
    We’ve received great feedback from fans asking for more control over audio levels and background sound. As a result, under Settings we’ve added two new features for controlling your audio options. With the new Sound mixer, you’ll be able to control the volume levels of two apps when you’re using Snap letting you decide which app is louder. In this same section, you’ll also be able to control the volume levels when you’re using Kinect for chat.
  • Opt-In to Help Improve Speech Recognition
    Being able to control your Xbox One with voice commands can be a magical moment and we want to continue making this great for all Xbox One owners worldwide. The more voice samples we have to input into our algorithms, the better and more responsive Xbox One can be to our fans. If you want to help us in our efforts to make voice and speech improvements for Kinect even better, you can opt-in to a speech data collection. Under Settings, then Privacy & Online Safety, go to Customizing privacy and online safety and set Share Voice Data to Allow. This is completely optional and all voice data shared via this setting will be used for product improvement only.
  • Take the Next System Update When You Want
    You’ll now also be able to take this next system update as soon as it’s available if you want. When this update is made available, you’ll find the option under Settings, then select System update as shown below.
