Xbox One users can look forward to a gigantic update this month. Microsoft is bringing a ton of new features to the console in one nice package. Cool upgrades like 16-person chat and the ability to add party chat to a Twitch stream are part of the update, but the biggest story involves backwards compatibility. Players will soon be able to purchase Xbox 360 titles on the Xbox One marketplace. The system already downloaded Xbox 360 games instead of reading them off their discs, but soon those downloads will be available to buy without the need for a physical copy of the game.
Here are all the features of the update.
– Purchase Xbox 360 Backward Compatible games on Xbox One
– Include Party Chat in Twitch broadcasts
– Output your Party Chat to headset and speakers simultaneously
– Customizable Game DVR recording length
– Gamerscore Leaderboard
– An Updated ‘Featured’ section
– 16-person Party Chat
– Xbox 360 Achievements in Xbox One and Xbox app Activity Feeds
– Follow web links and YouTube videos from Game Hubs
– Compare your Avatars
– Reputation rating interface changes
