The Xbox One will receive its first major dashboard in March addressing numerous issues with the Xbox Live service along with other unspecified system fixes. The update will introduce fixes for Party-chat problems as well as improving the usability and visibility of Xbox Live’s social features.
The latest news follows Xbox chief product officer Marc Whitten’s comments during CES 2014 where he said that the console’s next major update will focus on its social features, referred to as the “Live experience.” At the time, Whitten said that Microsoft aims to roll out Xbox One updates faster but the console will still receive the larger dashboard updates, with other upcoming improvements focusing on TV features.
