July is upon us and that means we’ll begin rolling out the next system update for Xbox One around the world in the coming days. Last month, we announced the new features coming in this update and since then, the team has been working hard to bring you a new and enhanced Snap mode for achievements, double-tap to Snap, and more voice control choices in select regions.

We’re continuing to gather your suggestions and recommendations on our dedicated channel called Xbox Feedback, so keep it coming. Thank you for taking the time to help us make Xbox the best place to play.

Just updated

The next update should include the ability to listen to music in the background, full dlna support, blu ray 3d and a system video player instead of opening Xbox video with a wider range of codec support for both music and video.
Used snap achievements last night, much better than the previous way.

Yup.
I actually like the snapped achievements for tracking purposes. My tv is probably too large for my bedroom so giving up the extra space doesn't bother me (most people's main complaint with snapping). Hell I grew up watching tv on the 4" scree in my radio then I played games on a 13" tv as a teen. So yeah, giving up a small slice for info I care about I have no problem with.

My problem is, when I want to go look in greater detail it's so hard to find how to make them full screen now! And it seems like snapping them is the default.

Hmm, I'll have to try that when I get home. I don't usually hit the menu button except when I'm either in games or hovering over tiles. Going to definitely check it out.

I double tap the guide a lot, to toggle between the two things running, but when I pop over real quick to see an achievement, then double tap to go back I often end up back on the dash like it was a single tap. It could be me doing something wrong, but I know how to double tap and it happens so often I have to believe it's something else with the timing.
I haven't fired up my box since the Hurricane (been about 5 days) now I really need to tonight because I was very much looking forward to snapped achievements.
My favorite part is the progress bar for achievements. Now it doesn't work for a few games but I love being able to gauge my progress.
I really want a way to take screenshots. I like that about the PS4, I can screen cap anytime. It's the photographer in me. I just like taking screen caps.
Video games are like life, difficult, frustrating, but most of all, they're fun and rewarding when you slow down and enjoy them.
I like the achievements feature but its slow loading up.
