    How to Check for and Install System Updates on Xbox One

    information   Information
    The Xbox One console features updatable software. This software includes the operating system as well as many system, game, and media apps for the Xbox One. During a system update, the software on your console is updated through a download-and-install process. The system software updates may sometimes update the systemís firmware, but this is not common for most updates.

    System updates help improve your experience with the addition of new features as well as improvement of existing features. The updates will be downloaded from the Xbox Live service directly to your Xbox One and subsequently installed.

    There are two types of system updates youíll see: available system updates and mandatory system updates.

    For more details, see:


    This tutorial will show you how to manually check for and install system updates on Xbox One.

    Note   Note
    If you want to play or communicate on Xbox Live, you must have the latest console software.

    Kinect games might not play properly if your console software is not up to date.
