Microsoft rolls out Xbox One October system update

Brings new Snap, Friends features, adds .mkv support.

October's Xbox One system update is now available to download, Microsoft has announced.

Previously available only to beta testers, the new firmware refresh brings with it a redesigned Snap Centre with quick access to revamped Friends, Achievements, Party, Messages and Game DVR apps.

There's also a new quick-launch menu, so you can jump between your last played game and last used app, plus snap and unsnap apps and record your last 30 seconds of gameplay.

Lost your controller? There's a new setting to help you find it by making it vibrate.

The console's media player has also been updated to support DLNA streaming and .mkv file playback via DLNA or USB.
