A worldwide rollout has just started that will give Xbox One consoles new features like social features, party system updates, and the highly anticipated media player. That's right, the Xbox One September update is ready in August.

Here's what's new in today's update rolling out:

A new Media Player app: Play media files from an attached USB device with the new media player app – DLNA support for your home media servers is coming soon. Xbox One will support more formats than Xbox 360, including support for dozens of new file formats like Mpeg 2 TS, animated gifs and MKV, which will be added by the end of the year.
Party on in the new and improved Party App: Be the leader of your party with the new party leader setting. As the party leader, you can change whether the party requires invitations and you can remove others from the party. The updated app also lets you see what activities everyone in your party is doing and who is playing in the same game with you in addition to being able to quickly perform common actions like muting, joining, or sending game invites.
New features for SmartGlass: You can now post status messages from the Activity Feed and comments, or share items from both your Activity Feed and Game Clips. Along with the new comment and share features, a personalized Activity Feed has been added to your profile and messages have been updated to a new layout supporting a full conversation view. Additionally, we are adding the ability to record game clips directly from the Now Playing bar. Finally, for users who upgrade the app directly, we have introduced a What's New page highlighting the features of each release.
"Xbox On" capabilities in Australia, Canada (French), Italy, Spain and Mexico: New regions will have the ability to use the "Xbox On" Kinect voice command to power on their consoles when they're in connected standby (Instant On) mode.
OneGuide comes to Brazil, Mexico, Austria, and Ireland: The ability to configure live TV listings will be available to all customers in these four countries. Also coming to these markets is the ability to use OneGuide and the Universal Remote Control in SmartGlass.
Boot to TV: Now Xbox One owners will be able to set their console to boot directly to television when coming out of connected standby.
Bandwidth Usage Display: Bandwidth Usage will show users how much bandwidth their Xbox One is consuming over a period of time, a useful tool for those who want to track against bandwidth caps set by ISPs in certain markets.
Save your Avatar Gamerpic: A new option to save Avatar Gamerpics to users' OneDrive.
GameDVR deletes: Users will be able to choose multiple GameDVR clips to delete at once in the Upload app.
This is one of the best updates yet to the Xbox One. Which feature are you most excited for?

I'll have to get this when I wake up. I can't leave my system in low power state anymore on the count that my power kicks off a lot. I really do miss that feature a lot.

Thank you futiles for that link. I know about the battery backups already as I had one for my gaming pc back in 2007. The only problem is that when my power kicked off it issued a waring sound which didn't bother me. The other people in my house though got annoyed with it and always turned the backup off. I pretty much would be wasting my money on buying another one now. When I can get my own place I will be sure to get one.
