The update may not appear to be much when Xbox One owners download and install it, and that’s because all of the updates are taking place behind the scenes. “There are no new user-facing features in this release as the team focuses on the New Xbox One Experience that will be available later this year,” Xbox Live director of programming Larry Hryb wrote on his Major Nelson blog.
The New Xbox One Experience Hryb mentions is the one that many understandably overlooked during E3 as Microsoft didn’t officially unveil it during its press conference, but instead showed it off in a video.
The Xbox One’s ability to stream games to Windows 10 devices will begin on July 29, which is when Microsoft’s new operating system releases. As for its backwards compatibility, that feature is currently available for a handful of games for Xbox One Preview Program members and is expected to be widely available later this year.
