The Creators Update has launched on Xbox One, with all of the new features rolling out steadily throughout the week.

The announcement of the Xbox One was a disaster. It was seen as a predatory and out-of-touch approach to the future of the Xbox Brand, and it was universally rejected. Years afterwards – where the Xbox One has recovered entirely from that reputation, and enjoys a loving fanbase – Microsoft’s Yusuf Mehdi – Corporate VP of Xbox – pushed a post out to LinkedIn about the experience.It’s an interesting read, and it highlights Xbox’s intention in the future to “Do right,” “Make exceptional products,” “Create connection,” and “Surprise and delight customers.”

Xbox’s Mike Ybarra went on Twitter recently to confirm that they’re not currently working on bring a picture-in-picture mode to Xbox One.
