Microsoft has released an update for the Xbox One family of systems, focused on fixing issues with Party Chat, Dolby Atmos, Wi-Fi, and more. Though it does not bring any new features, this update is the first Xbox One update for all users since November of 2017, and it definitely will help make things much more stable (via Windows Central.)
As always, if you’ve set up your Xbox to run in Instant On mode, the update should have automatically downloaded to your console. If not, you can head to Settings, System, Console Info and Updates, to manually download the update. See the changelog below for more on the fixes in this release.
