The New Xbox One System Update Is Rolling Out Today

As previously reported, the latest update for the Xbox One has started to roll out today, and brings with a number of fixes for the Xbox Store, the controller as well as customization features for the start-up chime.

The biggest changes are for the start-up chime, which not only allow the chime to be turned off completely, but will also allow the option for it to play when the console is turned on with either voice commands or through pressing the power button. This update also changes the OS version of the console from 10.0.14393.1027(rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160801-1743) fre to 10.0.14393.1040 (rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160816-1851) fre.
