Performance and general improvements

Download performance

We’ve made several optimizations to game and app downloads on Xbox One:

  • Customers with high-speed connections (greater than 100Mbps) should experience up to 80% faster download speeds.
  • Customers with connections less than 100Mbps should experience more consistent performance that is up to 40% faster than before.
  • Additional optimizations have also made background downloads more resilient to intermittent connectivity issues.

Download speeds will be influenced by network contention within the home and at the ISP level. Download speeds will also be impacted when games are running on the console as system resources are prioritized for gameplay over background downloads.

Wireless controller

  • Firmware update to improve performance.

Background Music

  • General performance improvements for added reliability and consistent experiences across steaming music apps.

Miscellaneous

  • General stability and performance improvements.

THis is certainly a very welcome update, especially considering that we all need to download 22.43 gigabytes for our free digital copy of Lost Odyssey.
