Xbox One update with voice messaging and improved party chat released

All Xbox One users can now send voice messages to their peers, as Microsoft has released its May system update for the console.

The update, which has been in testing with update preview members since late March, also brings improvements to the console's party chat function, as detailed in a post on Microsoft's official Xbox Wire website. With the update, dedicated servers will now be used for party chats, which will alleviate problems some Xbox Live users faced because of NAT issues.

Other changes and improvements include the ability to turn off a console via the Xbox One SmartGlass app as well as the addition of a choice screen featuring energy-saving options upon initial setup of an Xbox One console.

The May update for Xbox One is now rolling out to all consoles.
