The Xbox One is an incredible gaming console with the capability to do all sorts of cool things, but unless you have your finger on the pulse of the latest Xbox news, you might be missing out on a few of its best features.
Here are nine especially great features of the Xbox One that you may not know about.
Any time you save your progress in a game on the Xbox One, a copy of that save file is automatically saved in cloud storage, too.
This means that if you visit a friend's house or buy a new console, all of your latest saves will be instantly accessible as soon as you sign in to your profile!
See how much data your console is using.
If you're in one of the unfortunate areas of the country currently experiencing caps on home data usage, you're probably trying to keep a closer eye on how much data your gaming habit is eating up.
In order to check your Xbox One's data usage, go to Settings —> Network —> Bandwidth Usage.
Continue your Xbox 360 games on your new Xbox One.
By now, you probably know that there are over 200 Xbox 360 games that are playable on your Xbox One, but did you know that you can start playing a game on your Xbox One right where you left off on your 360?
In order to make your Xbox 360 saves accessible on your Xbox One, you have to enable cloud saving on your Xbox 360. To do so, go to Settings —> System —> Storage —> Cloud Saved Games, and select "Enable."
Next, start the game on your Xbox 360. When you save your progress, select "Cloud Saved Games" as the desired save location. Once the upload is complete, this save file will be accessible when you start the game on your Xbox One!
Also, keep in mind that in order to enable cloud saving on your Xbox 360, you must be an Xbox Live Gold member!
