Microsoft is rolling out a new software update for Xbox One today.


Microsoft is seemingly close to deploying its new UI for Xbox One. All Xbox One owners will get an update today that will make the console ready to receive the major overhaul when it becomes available.

Official word is still fall 2015 for a public release, but this could mean that Preview Program members won’t have to wait long before they can try it.

The only other notable fix the new firmware, version 6.2.13326.0, brings, is a fix for party chat issues.

Xbox One’s upcoming UI overhaul is said to be 50% faster than the current one. At gamescom 2015, Microsoft showed off the most recent build and it looked very promising.
