Following a few teases here and there, Major Nelson has announced that the Xbox One will be receiving a new update in its Preview program later today which should help prep it for its eventual roll-out in the near future.

Some of the features include the ability to see Party members before joining; a leaderboard for Gamerscore so you can compare your score to friends; the Activity Feed informing users when new news items emerge; the ability to join Twitch broadcasts; hiding titles like betas, trials, games and apps which are “Ready to Install”; and a New Friend Suggestions area in Community and a Friends list in the Xbox One Guide. Other updates will include the Avatar Store, improvements to Trending, a compact mode for the Xbox app and Xbox News.

It remains to be seen when the update rolls out for everyone but February doesn’t sound unreasonable. What are your thoughts on the new features for Xbox One? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.
