The wait is finally over, Microsoft has started rolling out the long-awaited Windows 10-inspired New Xbox One Experience update.
The update started rolling out earlier today at 12:01 a.m. PT (3:01 a.m. ET). However, Microsoft notes that not everyone will get the update at the same time, so don’t panic if you are still waiting.
Here’s how to get the update:
- If you use the Instant-on power mode (available via Settings ? Power & startup), your Xbox One will take the update in the background when you put your console into Connected Standby mode. As this is a global rolling launch, consoles in Connected Standby will be updated at various times throughout the day based on your time zone.
- If your console is in Energy-saving mode, your Xbox One will not automatically download and install the update. To initiate the download and update process, you can go to Settings ? System to manually check if an update is available and choose ?Update Now?.
To accompany this update, Microsoft will also start rolling out backwards compatibility for Xbox One at 12:01 p.m. PT (3:01 p.m. ET) today, November 12th.
“To start playing your Xbox 360 games on Xbox One after this time, refresh your Game Collection to see your pre-purchased, digital Xbox 360 titles from the Backward Compatible title list in your ready to install queue or simply insert the disc for a supported Xbox 360 title and download the game to start playing it on Xbox One,” Xbox Live’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb adds.
