Microsoft rolls out new Xbox One system update, Windows 10 build 14393.1040

Last month, before it had even begun the rollout for PCs, Microsoft released the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for the Xbox One - although, confusingly, in addition to referring to it in various places as the Anniversary Update for the console, it also called it the 'August Update' and the 'Summer Update'.

Whatever you want to call it, it brought a wide range of exciting new features to the Xbox One, and today, Microsoft is rolling out a further system update to the console.

The update will bump the OS version up to 10.0.14393.1040 (rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160816-1851) fre, and the full list of new or updated features can be found below:

Startup Chime

  • You can now modify, turn on, or turn off the startup chime! You’ll find three new options in Settings > Power & startup > Power mode & startup.
    • On (startup chime plays anytime the console is powered on).
    • Only with power button or voice (startup chime plays when console is powered on via the power button or voice; does not play when powered on with the controller).
    • Off (startup chime never plays).
