Xbox One’s First Update to Fix Live Experience


Xbox’s chief product officer, Marc Whitten gave some insightful information regarding the upcoming update to the Xbox One that fixes some of the “Live experience”. According to Whitten in an interview with Engadget,

The feedback we’ve gotten is pretty valid; some of the social stuff is hidden or harder to use than it was on the Xbox 360. So you’re gonna see us come out with an update where, well, we’re going to fix those things. As a person who’s been pretty involved in building Xbox Live for the last decade, I take it pretty seriously when people say it’s harder to get into a party, and the defaults aren’t right, and I don’t like the model. So what I’m trying to do with the team is kind of theme some stuff up. Let’s take an update and really go through a big list of what we’re hearing from customers, what we know is broken with the architecture, areas that we want to improve or complete. I think that’s a theme you’ll really see us push on — that Live experience.”

So fixes to the social functionality are coming soon, but it looks like streaming still might be a few months out unfortunately.
