After several delays, Microsoft finally started rolling out Xbox One’s February update over the weekend.

The update adds the ability to manage stored data, allows users to prioritize downloads, adds a controller battery indicator the dashboard, and significantly improves the console’s overall stability. You can check out the patch notes below (via Major Nelson):

  • The ability to delete game & application save data, and to see & manage your storage space
  • Improved installation and DLC management, including the ability to control your install lineup and prioritise certain downloads over others
  • Improved UI for accessing friends, achievements, messages, and party chat
  • Game DVR app to be included in the Xbox OneGuide as an app channel
  • Update to the boot progress indicators for system update
  • Improve consistency of UX for update & install progress
  • Separate game, application, and install queue lists
  • Addition of USB keyboard support
  • Improved NAT detection
  • Network Troubleshooter improvements
  • Blu-ray quality improvements
  • Significant performance and stability improvements

A second update for the console is due next month, shortly before the release of Titanfall, that will see party chat automatically selected upon entering a party, adds a “Recent Players” list, moves the friends list to the front page of the Friends app, and more.
