    Select Xbox One owners will be invited to install and test system updates early starting Thursday.

    Xbox Live director of programming Larry Hryb announced that some users will receive an Xbox Live message which includes a code to register. Those who sign up will receive early access to the friends-focused March system update starting next week.

    Early access users can test out the March update's changes to friend and chat functionality, detailed below, and share comments and concerns on a private forum. Registered users will continue to receive early access to Xbox One system updates unless they opt out of the program.

    An Xbox One system update distributed on February 11 gave users the ability to manage storage, improved Kinect voice commands, and added several "behind-the-scenes updates." It also added a battery indicator for controllers.

    Xbox One March update features

    Get to your Friends List faster. The friends list will be front and centre on the homepage of the Friends app. Click the Social tile on Home, or say "Xbox, go to Friends" to see who's online and what they're up to. From there you can quickly send messages and get into a party.

    Party chat will be turned on by default: When you party up, chat audio will be turned on by default.

    Chat with friends playing different games: Party chat will be separated from people playing your game, so you can chat with your friends who are online or you can chat with everyone playing the game.

    We're adding an "Invite friends to game" option to your multiplayer titles moving forward: Similar to Xbox 360 titles, this will appear inside a game's menu and offer a simple and quicker way to set up your multiplayer battles. Selecting "Invite friends" will let you invite friends to your game and party.

    We're adding "Recent Players": This is a simple list that shows you Xbox Live members you've recently played with, making it easier to stay in touch with people, or add new friends after your multiplayer battles.
