    Xbox One March System Update Rolling Out Today

    How do you get the new update? For the vast majority of Xbox One owners who use “Instant On” (the low power state that allows you to instantly power up your console by saying “Xbox On”), the console automatically checks for updates when customers turn it off. This means that once we’ve made the March update available (late tonight, Pacific Time), the next time you turn your console off it will take the update during off-peak hours in your local time. Ultimately, you’ll see it sometime in the next day or two.

    For more information on this system update, click over to Xbox Wire. Here is a longer list of the features you’ll see in this update:

    Improved Multiplayer & Party chat

    Cross title party chat
    Party chat on by default
    Easier multiplayer invites

    IR blasting of power & volume to TVs/AVRs in all regions
    AVR setup maps to include model number for most sound bars or AVRs when setting up TV

    Improved Audio output support

    SPDIF (optical out) now supports 5.1 Dolby Digital – enabling devices such as sound bars with only Optical In to be able to receive 5.1 Dolby Digital from console over optical
    HDMI output now supports stereo uncompressed, 5.1 uncompressed, 7.1 uncompressed or 5.1 Dolby Digital live or 5.1 DTS
