Xbox One June 2014 update adds external storage, real names and more

Microsoft has revealed that the June Xbox One system update will add the capability to increase your storage via external storage devices, as well as adding real names for your friends and allowing you to now sign in automatically when you boot up your console. Users will also now be able to take advantage of new SmartGlass features including OneGuide and Universal Remote Control. However if you wish to add extra storage for your Xbox One, you will need to use a USB 3.0 drive which must be at least 256GB in size.

Speaking on Xbox Wire, Major Nelson stated, “Since our launch of Xbox One last year, we’ve been hard at work to continue making Xbox One the best destination for all your gaming and entertainment experiences. Because of the way we’ve designed the Xbox One platform, we’ve been able to continually improve the product for you with a more regular cadence of system and app updates. Your feedback for what you want most has been our guiding light for these updates, and will continue to be as we work to bring the fan-favorite features you want most.

Here is what you can expect from the update:

Easily Increase Games Capacity with External Storage Support

Real Names Makes it Easier to Identify Friends

SmartGlass Provides Access to full OneGuide and Universal Remote Control, Pin Reordering and More

Expanded TV and OneGuide Soon Available in More Markets
