Details for the Summer Xbox One update have been released today in this latest video hosted by Larry Hryb (Aka Major Nelson) and guest starring Mike Ybarra Director of Program Management for Xbox. This is going to be a huge update and will incorporate many new features not only for the Xbox One but also for the Xbox app.
Cortana will finally be making her appearance on the Xbox One and will assist in gamers finding and communicating with friends more easily. Accessing Cortana is easy as ABC, to activate her just say ‘Hey Cortana’, she will even comply with commands via headsets.
There will also be changes to My Games and Apps with games now being displayed vertically rather than horizontally and will be able to be browsed through in alphabetical order. Gamers will also be able to change the order of their downloads. A new app called Pandora will also enable gamers to listen to their favourite music, ideal for those who want to chill while they play. Xbox are looking at a number of app developers who provide similar functionality.
