The latest system update for Xbox One is currently rolling out to all users, Microsoft has announced.

The August update adds support for 3D Blu-ray playback, adds a low battery notification pop up when the controller is low on power, the ability to see the last time a friend was online, and the ability to turn off notifications while watching videos.

As well as this, the update enables mobile purchases from Xbox Live via SmartGlass and Xbox.com. “No more waiting to begin downloading when you get home,” Microsoft explains. “If your console is set to automatically take updates, your console will begin downloading your purchase.”

Finally, the August update makes changes to Xbox One’s Activity feed. “We’re adding new ways for you to interact with friends in the activity feed. The interface will change to a single column scrolling list that is longer and includes more content. We’ll add the ability to post text to your feed, and to “like” and comment on feed items. You can share game clips and anything else in the feed with friends either publically (to your activity feed) or privately (as an attachment to a message). You’ll also be notified when anyone likes, comments on or shares your items. Each user will get a personal feed on their profile, so you can see what specific friends have been up to. And, with SmartGlass, you can see what your friends have shared to their activity feed and “like” specific posts (additional activity feed support coming in future SmartGlass updates).”

Last week, Microsoft announced that Xbox One’s September update will make changes to parties, add a new Media Player app, add a new Friends section, and more. You can check out all the details here.
