The Xbox One’s second major update is scheduled to release on March 4th, a week before the release of Titanfall. This update will improve many features with the systems party chat and invitation features. Microsoft is sending invitations to select Xbox Live members and they will be receiving their dashboard beta tokens via the Xbox Live message system.
However, there is a minor stipulation that users should be made aware of before accepting this invitation. In the past with some of Xbox 360’s dashboard updates users participating were isolated from the general population. Since the new update focuses on the party and notification systems users won’t be able to receive party chat invites, use party chat, use party matchmaking, and party visibility will be unavailable as well.
The Xbox One dashboard preview program will be available next week. Users will also have access to a private forum on the Xbox website. If you get invited to the dashboard update, it’s worth checking out, even if you have to be separated from your friends for a week. You’ll be reunited with your friends and the general population in early March before the release of Titanfall.
The Xbox One dashboard update will launch March 4th. Titanfall will release on Xbox One on March 11th.
