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. For more information, visit Troubleshoot slow game or app downloads on Xbox One.

The Gamerscore leaderboard is now a monthly competition with your friends that resets each month. Compete right up to the very end of the month, and check to see who the previous months’ winners were.

On-screen keyboard

The on-screen keyboard supports predictive text, and emojis are making their debut as well.
