Xbox One February update gets detailed, includes controller and party chat updates

After a short hiatus over the Holiday Season, it appears the Xbox team is ready to roll out their first system update of 2015, the Xbox One February update. In it looks like only a handful of minor changes, but for those who use an Xbox One day-in and day-out, these changes are likely to make a world of difference. Check out the video of Major Nelson detailing the new updates:
Probably the biggest of the updates relate to the controller updates and the transparency of the home screen tiles. The controller updates should now allow gamers to connect to the Xbox One in “about two seconds”, a marketed improvement over the previous 4-5 seconds you would normally have to wait. Also, the transparency update should pair nicely with the custom background update that was dropped late last year, and allow you to see those backgrounds that you painstakingly earned. And interesting update that didn’t get mentioned in the video, but I feel is significant, is the party chat updates, which now includes new indicator icons to help diagnose network issues and changes to invites and connectivity in parties.
