There is another major update for the Xbox One planned for October and today Major Nelson walked us through it.  Most of the planned updates have to do with the console’s Snap function, in particular a Snap tab for messages.  The developers specifically mentioned they have many requests from Xbox 360 players who enjoyed the ability to navigate the Xbox 360 Home Screen when tapping the Xbox Guide Button on their controller and want them to bring in similar functionality to the Xbox One.  They think they can accomplish this by improving the system’s Snap functionality.

You can take a look for yourself if you want to see these new features in action, however Microsoft says that this video may not be fully representative of what ends up in the final version of the update when it is released.
