If you been waiting for the external storage on the Xbox One then you don’t have to wait to much longer, the update coming next month will add external storage support, allowing users to connect up to two 256GB or larger USB 3.0 external drives to the system.
The new update will also adds automatic sign-ins upon booting the system and the option to display your real name to select friends. Now not just the USA, now Canada and Europe can look forward to finally receiving access to OneGuide and its live TV features.
About the external storage support, Microsoft says Xbox One owners can choose which of their drives, including the internal 500GB drive, is the default location for new game installs and so on.
Microsoft also notes players can install games to an external drive, plug that drive to another Xbox One, and sign in or insert a disc to start playing there.
If you want to you can display your real name to friends. On Xbox One you can select which none, some, or all of your friends can see your real name. You can extend that to include friends of those friends, but followers who aren’t your friends will only be able to see your gamertag.
The June update brings tweaks to SmartGlass too, including Twitch notifications for friends’ broadcasts, pin-reordering, and fixing the activity feed to the home screen. With OneGuide coming to the app as well as to Xbox One owners in Canada, UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy, SmartGlass is also getting a virtual universal remote that you can use to control your TV. Presumably that’s with those daily hunts for slippery real-life remotes in mind.
