Xbox One Insiders Are Getting a New Update with Download Feature

Those in the Preview Alpha Skip Ahead part of the program can now try out a new feature that tells users how long it takes until whatever it is they’re downloading will be finished. It’s a feature the console lacked until now, and after the testing has completed, it’ll roll out for all the Xbox One users.

An image that shows what this feature will look like was also provided. If you’ve played on a PlayStation 4 or perhaps on the PC platform, you’ve already benefited from this feature and will know that it’s nothing very flashy. What it does do though is give users at least a general idea of when their products will be downloaded or at least have progressed enough so that they can be launched.
