Microsoft details October's major Xbox One update with a video preview

Microsoft has a huge array of features and additions planned for Xbox One in the future, and the latest wave of updates brought a new media player, additional SmartGlass features, and even a Boot to TV mode. But Microsoft isn't done yet: dozens more features are being added over the next month, and Xbox's Major Nelson has released a teaser video detailing a few of the best additions.

In addition to improvements on existing features, the October update will bring multiple new features, including:

  • An entirely revamped friends' section, with a Gamerscore leaderboard and the most popular games your friends have been playing.
  • New features for the Achievements App, including a list of friends who have unlocked specific achievements, and an updated landing page.
  • Support for DLNA and MKV streaming via the Media Player app.
  • The Xbox One Digital TV Tuner, available in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, which will allow users to watch live TV on their Xbox One, and pause shows for up to 30 minutes.

Several features are also being added at the behest of users who have requested them, including an updated devices and accessories page, and even a 'find controller' feature that will allow you to locate your controller by making it vibrate via the Xbox One.
