    Before we dive into the update bit, you should know that you will be able to play your Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One console, thanks to the recently announced "native" backwards compatibility, at E3, something many have wished for. Excited? Xbox One owners can look forward to receiving a major update for their consoles this fall. It might not have a dedicated Cortana button like maybe your next PC, but there are a lot of exciting things on their way to look forward to.

Chances are that your Xbox One has already downloaded the update (should your power settings be on Instant On), and you're already noticing some changes.

    There's a new Xbox SmartGlass app available for Windows Phone that's made for the Xbox One. It's kind of strange that you need a completely different SmartGlass app for the new Xbox One vs. the old app for the Xbox 360, but it makes sense that the new version is completely redesigned to offer many more features.  We don't have an Xbox One to test it on just yet, but according to the screenshots, it looks like there's some great new functionality such as volume control.  Having to pick up a TV remote with the Xbox 360 in order to control the audio volume or turn off the TV was so ...
