The update every Xbox One user have been waiting for is finally hitting consoles today after months of waiting as Microsoft teased and beta tested the update. The new update will be bringing a new dashboard UI experience, a focus on speed and backwards compatibility with some Xbox 360 games. Major Nelson confirmed in a blog post that, Xbox One owners will start seeing the new software roll out at 3AM ET. In the usual update fashion, this will be a staged rollout, so I’ll advise you to just get your beauty sleep and install the update when you wake up or after work.
It’s also worth to note that, the backward compatibility feature that gives users the ability to play 104 old Xbox 360 games will begin rolling out at 3PM ET.
Xbox One users will be losing the Kinect gestures from the system menu only. Overall, the new update is a welcomed one, just that you’ll have to learn a few new shortcuts (like pressing right trigger to jump to Games & Apps on the home screen).
