Xbox One updates bring External Storage, Real Names, SmartGlass updates, and more!

Xbox One's next major update will be coming in June and apparently Xbox is excited to announce that the two most wanted features are coming to the Xbox One: External Storage support and real names to better identify your friends.

Something interesting to be noticed on the external storage is that Xbox is saying to "simply plug in your 256 GB or larger USB 3.0 external drive", can this mean you need a external supports that is USB 3.0? Aside from that weird very detailed explanation it seems to be just as simple as it was on the Xbox 360. The external storage will also allow full games to be stored which was a concern many folks.

The real interesting thing coming up here is the Real Names, so how does this work?
Well let's say you have a friend with the GamerTag "MasterChief2020" and another friend with "MasterChief2025". With this feature your friends can let you see there real name so you can distinguish that "MasterChief2020" is Roberto and "MasterChief2025" is Eric. Another useful feature aside from finding friends easier and seamless? Well you can hide your embarrassing GamerTag from your friends, Hey! We all know you blame that "Random Tag Chooser" but we all know that's a lie "1LoveHelloKitty".

Other features that are coming with update
One of the most wanted features is using certain apps like Netflix, Hulu and Internet Explorer without Xbox Live basically removing the paywall. Other things coming include SmartGlass Updates, OneGuide reaching more markets, Universal Remote Control, and the ability to reorder your Pins.
