Some details on the next major update for the Microsoft Xbox One game console have surfaced. The most important thing added in the update due to land next month is support for 3D Blu-ray discs. That means owners who have a 3D TV will get to enjoy 3D movies from the console.




Other improvements coming in the update include changes to the console Activity Feed and Friends section. Users will also gain the ability to automatically download new games and apps. That feature allows you to purchase content from via the web or Smart Glass connected devices and have the Xbox download it automatically.


Another nice update is a warning that will display when your controller is getting low. Xbox controllers will also get a vibration to acknowledge when input with a notification has been made. There will be other updates and tweaks made as well.
