Microsoft’s Movies & TV app (also named, Films & TV, in many regions) which is used to consume media on Windows 10 devices and the Xbox One will soon be getting an update which will enable viewing of 4K content.

The app will first get an update for Windows Insiders (users who help test early versions of the Windows 10 operating system and its apps) before rolling out to the general public. The app will also gain some user interface changes as well which will make viewing between devices more convenient and streamlined. Here’s the official changelog:

It’s now easier to sync video you’ve purchased in the Movies & TV app across your devices with the introduction of your video cloud collection.

When there is a UHD version of a video in our catalogue, you’ll be prompted to purchase or rent the UHD version by default.

You can now purchase and rent UHD videos inside the Movies & TV app.

On Xbox One consoles, you can see how much of a movie you’ve already watched from your Homepage.

Are you excited for this update? Is there anything else you would like to see in future updates such as the ability to download media on the Xbox One? Let us know in the comments below.
