Xbox live not updating 2016
Routers at the ready: the next major Xbox One dashboard update is on the way, and it's shaping up to be a big one.
We're talking a lot more than skin-deep tweaks: Windows 10 and Cortana are both set to land on consoles this summer, which should be the biggest overhaul since Microsoft unleashed the console back in 2013.
If you are a member, you will already know that there is a new Xbox One Preview Program Update on the table now. July 2, 2016 and not only does it bring in a number of fixes but also new features.
Let’s look at the singular addition that has been made to the Xbox ONe features.
You'll also be able to use Cortana to set up parties through Kinect or via a headset, see what friends are playing, and control media playback.
Cortana replaces the old Xbox voice commands with "Hey Cortana," but Microsoft is keeping them available if you disable Cortana.
All the top Windows 10 PC games will now show up on Xbox Live, meaning you'll be able to see what your friends are playing on their PC, chat with them over Xbox Live parties, and see and share PC game clips.
If you want to change the volume or pause the music then there are quick controls available from opening up the Xbox dashboard guide.
The Xbox One store wasn't exactly user-friendly at launch, but that's all set to change with the Summer Update.
It now looks a whole lot cleaner, with a simplified design and a re-ordered games catalogue that makes a lot more sense.
Microsoft is starting to merge its Xbox and Windows Stores with this update, allowing you to get access to some Windows 10 apps on the Xbox.
It's still early days so not many are available, but Microsoft will be opening the store up to more and more developers in the coming months.Microsoft is also tweaking the game collection layout, so you can access a "ready to install" section and not have to scroll horizontally for your games.
