Xbox One September update preview

Microsoft announced details regarding the September system update coming to the Xbox One next month earlier this week at Gamescom 2014 in Cologne, Germany.

On Friday, Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Herb gave fans a look at, as well as went into detail about, the brand new features and updates coming to the Xbox One in September.

The media player has been updated to allow users to play files on the Xbox One via either a directly plugged in USB drive, or by way of streaming through another device via DLNA.

The video shows just how users can open their music and movie files on the Xbox One using a DLNA connection. A rundown of some of the supported file formats was also discussed.

The update is available now for preview members, but only files on a USB device are supported at this time. Support for DLNA will arrive as the update is rolled out to the rest of the general public.

Other updates included a revamped party app and changes to the friends section will also be included in the September system update. European users will also have the ability to stream TV to their SmartGlass app for even more portable viewing.
