PSA: Xbox One August update now available

Microsoft has returned from Gamescom with a gift for its Xbox One users: the new August update. The update rolled out over the course of Sunday evening and is now available to all Xbox One owners. This month's update adds some much-requested UI updates, as well as support for 3D Blu-ray playback.

Major Nelson details the big changes in the video below. The activity feed has received somewhat of a visual overhaul, making it easier to follow. It's also getting some Facebook-like functionality in that users can 'like,' comment, and share certain posts.

The other big addition is the low battery notification for Xbox One controllers. Users will now see a pop-up notification whenever their battery is running low, giving them a chance to switch out batteries in-between gaming sessions.
