    The new Xbox One summer update has already started to roll out to it’s users this weekend. Its biggest new features being that cortana has been added, and background music is now supported. Background Music means you’ll be able to listen to your favorite tunes while playing your favorite games on your favorite console! Pandora will be added to the Xbox store soon, and iHeart Radio and Groove Music will be added as well. Sadly, Spotify has an exclusive deal with PlayStation, so will not be available on Xbox One.

    Cortana will be joining the Xbox One to help you initiate voice commands, perform searches, and broadcast your voice during multiplayer. Cortana can hear you through the Kinect, or through a headset microphone connected to your controller.

    There is also another updated featured, the Game Collection Window. Microsoft added 2 new tabs to the window, a “Ready To Install” tab, and an “Updates” tab, for gamers who would like to view those.

    Another highly requested feature, Language Independence, has been added as well. This means you can set your Xbox One to a language that isn’t commonly used in the region. For example, if you live in Spain, setting you console to French even though that’s not what is commonly used in the region.

    This new Summer Update will make way for the new Xbox One S, that launches on Tuesday. The model that launches on Tuesday will only be available with 2TB of memory. The 1TB and 500GB models will launch 3 weeks later. Other Xbox features announced at E3 will be added via updates around the holiday season.

    The games app is an excellent update!! Personally I think this is the best update so far :)

    I now can see what needs to be updated and no longer have to insert the disc for disc based games. Before I was starting every app and game to see if they needed updating and then inserting the disc to complete the update. Its a huge time saver now, good job MS!
