Xbox One Gets New Firmware Update This Week; Full Changelog Revealed

Xbox One's update in August all set to release tons of goodies for gamers

Xbox One users have already seen the February update for their console but it seems like Microsoft is releasing a small firmware update for the console ahead of its March firmware update.


Microsoft’s Larry Hyrb, also known by his nick Major Nelson, tweeted about this new system update news today.

For list of changes in this firmware update, you can check out the official changelog below along with a changelog for the preview updates, that were a part of this new firmware update.

Official Description

  • This additional update fixes a couple of minor issues some users have experienced including video playback issues with some media applications.

Preview Update Description

  • A fix to address an issue where some videos would not play in the Comedy Central app.
  • A fix to address an issue where videos would not play within the MTV app.
  • A fix to address an issue in the Upload app where “Watch all” videos generates an error.
  • A fix for an issue where even though your console is in Instant-on mode, it requires a full boot including green Xbox screen.
  • A fix to address an issue for users who find their controller will no longer connect via a wireless connection, and only works over USB. If this has occurred to you, after taking this system update, you will be able to connect your controller via a USB cable and wait a few seconds before unplugging it. This will recover your controller and you will be able to connect wirelessly. It is expected that subsequent controller firmware updates will fail. This will be addressed in a later system update.

This new update weights in at about 270 MB and should be downloadable this weekend.
