The Xbox One launched back in November, but there were some very simple features that were found on the Xbox 360 that the next generation console seemed to be missing. Luckily, it sounds like we are getting a couple of those back in the upcoming February dashboard update that rolls out on February 11.
While this isn’t the full rundown, Microsoft has revealed a few of the standout features in this first update.
-The ability to see and manage your storage space. With this update, you will find it easy to find how much space your content takes up and better manage your content. You can also control your install lineup and more easily manage your download queue. We’ve separated My Games and My Apps into separate lists, so you can easily create separate queues for both. Now you can pick the order in which you want your content to load and we’ve added a boot progress indicator so you can better track updates while they load.
-The battery power indicator is back! You can see it right on the home screen, so you can easily track how much battery life is left on your controller.
-And, you will be able to use your USB keyboard with your Xbox One.
March will also see an update for the console as a leadup to the launch of Titanfall on March 11. Due to the online nature of this game, the new update will include “many new features and improvements, most significantly to our party and multiplayer systems.”
