Xbox One’s March Update Gets Us Friendly for Titanfall
Sound improvements, stereo headset support, Twitch streaming and a revamped friend system highlight this month’s changes to the Xbox One’s user interface.
Just in time for the March 11 launch of Titanfall, the Xbox Wire has reported that the Xbox One’s system update for the month of March will try to optimize the multiplayer experiences of Xbox Live. This update includes the addition of the “Xbox, go to Friends,” “Recent Player” and “Invite Friends to to Game” voice commands, which gives players easier access to organizing their parties and adding new friends online. Twitch live streaming support can now be triggered by the “Xbox broadcast” command, offering the options for archiving your own broadcasts and for viewing live streams online. Also, the optical out cord of the Xbox One now supports 5.1 Dolby Digital.
Smaller changes to the system include the “Xbox volume up” and “Xbox volume down” voice commands to directly alter the Xbox One’s sound output levels along with the support of the new Xbox One accessories, such as the system’s new media remote and stereo headset. There have also been improvements made to the system’s overall UI and Internet Explorer. This system update will be going underway later this afternoon.
