xbox one hands on review 02 640x406If you happen to own the Xbox One from Microsoft, then you might want to take note that the console’s September update had started to roll out already – never mind the fact that there are still a couple of days left to go through after today before September comes a-knockin’ on our doors. This particular system update for the Xbox One would see the introduction of a new media player app for the console, and should roll out gradually in the course of the coming days.

Microsoft started to test the most recent update earlier in August, where apart from the brand new media player app that is capable of supporting the likes of the MKV format, animated GIFs and DNLA, there will also be the inclusion of new party features, new SmartGlass features, and the ability to boot straight to TV, among others.

Not forgetting”Xbox On” capabilities rolling out in Australia, Canada (French), Italy, Spain, and Mexico, where these newly mentioned regions will now allow Xbox One owners to make use of the “Xbox On” Kinect voice command to turn their consoles from being in connected standby (Instant On) mode. It is not one feature that will get old easily, this I can attest to! Have you received your Xbox One system update already if you happen to reside in a country that supports it? If not, just play the patience card for the moment. [Press Release]
