February Xbox One update features details

Microsoft has detailed the February Xbox One update features that are coming to all users next month.

Although we’re not that far into 2016, Microsoft has taken it upon itself to kick its monthly Xbox One updates into gear.

The Xbox One February update drops today for Preview members, whereas everyone else will get it in a couple of weeks.

This time around there are no major new features, just a few heavily fan-requested additions.

For example, your Pins can now be reorganised without having to use the Smartglass app, and can finally be used when the console is offline.

Microsoft has also restored the Gamerscore leaderboard, which was lost in the massive November update last year – and integrated into your Profile app instead.

This update also marks the return of the Avatar Store and has been redesigned so you can access it from the app on Xbox One or Windows 10.

There’s thousands of items of clothing and accessories to buy too, if that’s your thing.

Other features inbound also include the ability to see who’s in a party before you join it and hide unwanted content from your library (apps/betas/demos/games).

There’s a tonne of smaller features too, but it’s another update that’s improving the Xbox One experience.
