Microsoft has shared further details on its April system software update for Xbox One. 

Members currently beta testing the update will soon receive the following new features:

  • Blu-ray player supports 50 Hz video output for content recorded at 50 Hz. We’ll also be updating the Blu-ray Player app in the coming days to round out these improvements.
  • Controller and headset adaptor firmware updates will reduce audio static and improve wireless connectivity.
  • Silent reboot after system updates and system update on demand now available. After this update, if your console is in Instant On mode, the update will happen automatically and return to standby upon completion. This means you won’t need to power on your console after an update moving forward. If you want to take future updates when available without waiting for your console to do it on its own, we’ve added this option under system settings. It will only show as available when there is an update to take.

Microsoft notes that these features may take “several days” to fully roll out to the testing audience, and that it’s possible “some features previewed won’t always make it to launch right away.”

A release date for the larger Xbox One community has not yet been announced.
