The Xbox One isn’t capable of saving multiple Wi-Fi passwords right now but that’s going to change after an upcoming firmware update for the console. Microsoft continues to address software pain points that customers bring to its attention by releasing software updates that take care of the problem. Its latest Alpha build addresses two such concerns that Xbox One owners have been complaining about basically since the console was launched.


One of those pain points is the inability to save multiple Wi-Fi passwords. The Xbox One has been unable to save settings for more than one Wi-Fi network since launch.

When console owners wanted to move the Xbox One from one network to the other, they had to remove the old settings and start the Wi-Fi setup from the beginning. It was unnecessarily time consuming and something that doesn’t even make sense for a modern device.

Microsoft’s Larry Hryb has now confirmed that Preview Alpha users will now be able to save multiple Wi-Fi passwords on their Xbox One. The update addresses another pain point by upgrading the system’s Pins options with Groups, allowing users to organize apps and games into sets for quick access. These features should roll out to the public in about a month.
