While we already knew aspects of what was coming in the patch, Microsoft has revealed even more features coming to Xbox One in the next planned system update.
The first part of the update focuses on Blu-Ray player support, and will see 50Hz video output support added for content recorded at 50Hz. The Blu-Ray app itself will receive an update to reflect these changes.
Other improvements include both the controller and headset adaptor firmware getting updated in a bid to reduce audio static and improve wireless connectivity.
Finally, a silent reboot function will be available once the system updates, alongside an update on demand feature. These will allow your console to automatically update if it's in Instant On mode, with the Xbox One returning to standby once it's done updating. You won't need to power on your console after an update in future. You'll be able to take future updates as they're available without waiting for the console to do it on its own, thanks to the new option in the system settings menu.
Microsoft has yet to announce a release date for this update, although they have promised it's "coming soon."
