Xbox One’s February Update Rolls Out Tomorrow


Xbox One owners can look forward to Gamerscore leaderboards, new party chat functions and more with tomorrow’s February update. There’s simply too many new features to list them here, but you can check out the full list of changes by heading over to the announcement page on Microsoft’s Xbox Wire blog.

The February update isn’t making any drastic changes to the user interface of the Xbox One like last year’s November update, but there is a huge list of usability changes to improve gamers’ quality of life when using the console, including the ability to see who’s in an existing party chat group without having to join it yourself.


Besides that, other big changes include the ability to – finally – move around your pins on the Xbox Dash to suit your own personal tastes and the ability to redeem promotional codes quicker without having to navigate multiple windows to do so.

The biggest part of the update though, is bound to be the return of Gamerscore leaderboards. Number junkies will undoubtedly be happy to once again directly see who has the bigger score between you and your mates.

If you’re only interested in changes to the counterpart Xbox App, you’re in luck – similar wide-reaching changes have already gone live as of today.
