Friends’ notifications, game save progress bar and more will be added to Xbox One in April

The next wave of features for Xbox One will be available in April, and will include notifications so you can see when friends and favorites sign into Xbox Live, a game save progress bar, Kinect voice and motion improvements and improved GameDVR quality.

The friends notifications feature “was one of the most frequently requested features from the first preview wave and we made it a priority to include it in the April update,” writes Major Nelson on his blog. “Also, friends who are in multiplayer will be identified in the friends list. We’ll also add the ability to view friends’ most popular apps.”
