Xbox One’s November System Update Adds Custom Backgrounds and More
Xbox has launched November's big Xbox One system update, adding customized backgrounds, new Gamer Profile features, Twitter integration and much more.
Xbox's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has announced that November's big Xbox One system update has gone live. This marks the last big update going into the system for 2014, and it's a doozy. The update will let you choose a custom background for your system, whether it be a theme, achievement art or any kind of JPG or PNG image you can implement via a USB drive. Your Xbox Live Gamer Profile will be able to share your location and bio if you'd like. You can also customize six game clips or achievement videos to be displayed with your profile in a carousel format.
Twitter will now be integrated so you can Tweet your favorite game clips on your account. Watching TV will also have Twitter integrated into it as well, so you can see what's trending, read Tweets people are saying about the show you're watching and much more.
Internet Explorer is now a Snapable app. The SmartGlass app now lets you browse the Xbox Store and buy/choose titles to download onto your Xbox One straight from your mobile device. We're already loving these new features implemented into the Xbox One.
