Xbox Lives’ Major Nelson has confirmed that the April update, which Xbox One Preview Program members started testing last month, has begun its formal roll out to all users.
Although this update rolled out to preview members in two waves it is just a single update for all consoles however, voice messaging and dedicated party chat servers are being held in preview mode while the Xbox engineering team tweak a few things.
So I guess that does make for a two wave update in the long run.
The features included in this part of the update are:
• Party chat improvements – Additional icons and notifications within the party chat experience to help you understand your connection and microphone status. The party app will help you get your microphone enabled and show you when privacy settings or networking issues are blocking communication with particular party members.
• Game hub links – You’ll see activity feed items when any of your friends follow a game, and you’ll also be able to get back to a game’s hub from activity feed posts related to the game – including feed items about the game’s achievements, game clips and screenshots.
• Achievement notifications – With this update, you’ll also see the achievement’s description in the notification so you know what you did to earn this achievement without having to open the achievements app.
• What’s On – The What’s On area is now available for Xbox One users in the U.S., Canada, and the UK. In it, you’ll find links to popular videos, games, movies, TV shows, game broadcasts and clips, along with Trending TV shows if you have configured OneGuide for your Xbox One console.
Here is a video review of all those features:
