During Build 2016, Microsoft made plenty of announcements, with one of them centered on releasing a big update for the Xbox One sometime this summer. Microsoft named it the Anniversary Update and it’s slated to come with lots of cool stuff.
Here are some features bundled in Xbox One’s Anniversary Update:
Cortana is finally coming to the Xbox One console in countries like Germany, France, U.S., U.K., Spain and Italy first. Gamers should expect similar a Cortana experience as on Windows 10 devices and thanks to this feature, they will be able to issue Cortana voice commands on Xbox One via their headsets or Kinect. The search command on Cortana can be used to find some new games, to see what your friends are doing, start a party, and complete all kind of tasks on your Xbox One.
Microsoft is promising that it will keep updating this feature to make sure it gets better and better so that gamers will enjoy using it.
A New Game Collection Interface
Microsoft promised that it would update the Game Collection interface in order to make it easier and faster to find and launch the games you want to play. In addition, you will be able to see more of your Game Collection by accessing your own “Ready To Install” tab.
Facebook Friend Finder
It seems that Facebook Friend Finder is expanding from the Xbox application to Xbox One. This means that you will be able to find and add friends from your Facebook on your Xbox One console and start playing with them as soon as they are online. However, keep in mind that the gamers will need to link their Xbox Live and Facebook accounts or else this feature will be useless.
According to Microsoft, you will be able to share screenshots, achievements and GameDVR clips with ease on Xbox One. Also, you will be able to share your most epic captures with the community by following some simple steps.
