Xbox One update with double-tap snapping to begin rolling out soon

Last month, Microsoft promised its July update for Xbox One would add the ability to double tap the Xbox button to snap an app as well as a new snap mode for achievements, and now that update is about to begin rolling out.

The update, which has been in testing via Microsoft's Xbox One preview program, will begin rolling out worldwide "in the coming days," the official Xbox Wire website announced. In addition to the snapping enhancements, the update will also bring "more voice control choices in select regions."

Microsoft's new console has seen consistent updates since it launched in November, eschewing the Xbox 360's typical annual or biannual update model. Several capabilities that were dropped to remove restrictive DRM prior to the Xbox One's may eventually make a comeback in updates, such as Microsoft's game-sharing plan, which supported up to 10 people.
