The Xbox One September update has released a bit early, quite soon after the August update launched. This brings a host of new features including a media player for playing all of your files and changes to the party system.
The Media Player will allow you to play “dozens” of file formats – with more coming later this year such as GIF and MKV – including music, movies and even photos, directly from a USB stick plugged into the machine. This is something the PS4 doesn’t yet have, and something people desperately want. There’s no DNLA support just yet, but that’s coming later this year.
Party leaders can now kick others from the party as part of an upgrade to that system, and SmartGlass has some social networking features, where you can post status updates direct to your feed, and you can now use SmartGlass to record game clips. There’s also an option for the console to boot directly to television rather than the home screen.
Finally, you can delete multiple clips in upload studio and even check your bandwidth usage for the console every hour, which should be useful for those with download caps on their broadband.
