Microsoft says that it has begun sending out the new Xbox One update in advance of its September debut.

The update features a new media app that lets you play content off of a USB device, and which supports a variety of file formats (with DLNA support and MKV support due later in the year).

It also allows you to designate a party leader, boot the Xbox One straight to TV, enables new features for SmartGlass, and more.
