Microsoft’s August Xbox One update brings with it a long awaited feature for Xbox owners, the ability to wake your console to automatically download games, addons and DLC when you aren’t in proximity to it.
This feature means you can buy a game on Smartglass or Xbox.com while your are at work and have the game downloaded ready to play by the time you get home. Once the game/content has downloaded the console will switch back to instant on mode to save power.
The ability to start a download going remotely comes just in time for the Destiny Beta which starts next week and weighs in as a 12GB download.
The August update which is available for those within the consoles Beta program also brings a new low battery notification, which will appear on screen when your controller’s power is close to running out.
