Microsoft continues to roll out new firmware features for its Xbox One console, with the latest August update now available. A new trailer has been released courtesy of Major Nelson and it explains some of the new features. Check it out above.

The August update will feature a good range of functionality for users including support for 3D Blu-Ray discs, an improved Activity Feed that lets you post your own status update, comment on others’ statuses and much more. You can also purchase digital content when away from your Xbox One and queue it up for download the next time you turn it on. Convenient, no?

The Xbox One will be experiencing a crowded release schedule from September onwards with Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizon 2, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Project Spark, the Fable Legends beta and much more arriving in the next few months. Look forward to another update or two before then.
