The Controller Battery Indicator is the Best Thing About Next Week's Xbox One Update

By Gerald Lynch on at

It's hard to believe that some of these "new features" weren't included in the first iteration of the Xbox One interface, but Microsoft's finally starting to plug the gaps in its next-gen system, with the first major update set to land next week.

Why the hell was the controller battery power indicator ever left out in the first place? Or the ability to view and manage the amount of storage space used? Crazy. Both features will thankfully now be present after the February 11th update, as well as the ability to manage the pending downloads queue, letting you split downloads between games and apps and prioritise each download type individually. USB keyboards will also be supported following the update. [Microsoft]
