Microsoft’s April system update for the Xbox One is live and has issued several improvements in the form of better Kinect voice and gesture commands, progress bars for save files and apps, and improved Friend notifications. It seems the company is gearing up for its next system update fairly soon though, as a letter was sent out to previous participants for the next preview. Check out the letter below.

Program manager Emily Hanson had written that, “The next system update for previewing will be starting soon, and you’re already registered. Come to the forum anytime, tell us new features you want to see, how to make your engagement with us better, or invite your friends.”

The May system update should be interesting since it’ll be arriving before E3 2014 where Microsoft will be showcasing its next wave of Xbox One titles. What new features are you looking forward to seeing? Let us know in the comments.

    External hard drive support 1T… or more……. please…….

    • Jay Rivera

      They said that the external support is coming soon. Everyone just has to have some patience. It sucks waiting, I get that, but these things take time and don’t happen overnight. At least Microsoft is actually listening to us and acting on their feet, unlike their competition.

    • You are flat out wrong

      You mean like the incoming 1.70 update?

      At least the PS4 doesn’t need dragging out of beta.

    • Blaze Blue

      there’s nothing wrong with having a beta. The same month that the beta is released it’s also released that same month to everyone. On top of that at least Xbox getting new features every month instead of waiting or wondering if you are getting one any time soon unlike the other system.

    • Mark Gibson

      Right on Jay you understand just like me. Yep they are listening to us, and that is good. I know the external will come soon…. yes some new guys they got aboard the Xbox team want to see it succeed after a bit of a slow start. They are working hard on updates, and listening. Very good idea to Beta test they release a solid update. Looking forward to the next update…..

  • Reddz Foxx

    Fixes for performance issues related to opening apps while games are running. Viewing gamercards most of the time never happens after asking the system to do so or you have to keep asking it to do it 7-10 times before anything happens.

    Separate volume controls for multitasking apps would be nice. Voice input for internet textboxes would be very cool too. Cortana integration would be awesome.

    • Psionicinversion

      think the main problm with cortana is that it needs to send that info off for processing and gets sent back i dont think its local… the same as my lumia 800 i say somethign into the microphone for a website the it has to send it off to a server and retrive it… no server no luck. whic is prolly why the local voice is a bit dodgy

    • incendy

      Not a problem for me, I am online.

    • Psionicinversion

      i m to till casp run out out hha

  • Joe

    No volume reduction when you enter a party.

    • Blaze Blue

      When have you seen that on any system.

  • You are flat out wrong

    A couple of bug fixes? Big whoop. More system updates, no games.

    Oh look, MrXBot leaked this. I can’t stand that simpering turd.

    • Psionicinversion

      giving you a false sense of security then bam… lands somethign awesome

    • You are flat out wrong

      MS’ announcement they’re pulling out of the console market, one hopes.

    • Psionicinversion
