The Xbox July system update has been detailed, offering confirmation of the new features coming next month – or in a matter of days if you're part of the early access brigade.

July Update includes:

Snap Mode for Achievements: An easier way to track and view your Achievements in the moment. With Achievement Snap, you can track your achievement progress in real time without ever leaving the game. You can also 'Get Help' on any Achievements you're struggling with. Xbox will scan the web for you and deliver relevant tips and strategy content right to your TV.

Double-tap to Snap:  Double-tap the button on you controller to bring up Snap Center, where you can launch Achievements or any other snap-able app, without leaving your game.

Choice of Spoken Language: Xbox One users in New Zealand, Ireland and Austria can now enable voice control using the English or German voice models from other countries.  If you're an expat in an English-speaking country, you, too, can choose any of the other English language models that fit you.

Future Digital Bundles and Compilation Discs: Xbox is doing some work now so that publishers will have options for digital bundle and disc compilation offerings in the future. There's the promise of "more flexible combinations of game titles and game content". Let's hope we see publisher and themed bundles similar to Steam sales and the Humble Bundle.

'Like' Game DVR clips: Adding the ability to 'Like' all your favourite Game DVR clips as well as activity feed items in SmartGlass.

There's no confirmed release date for the July system update.

I like a lot of the stuff the Xbox One does. Snap seems like a great feature for someone that is frequently multi-tasking.

When they've ironed out all the niggles come the start of 2015 I may definitely consider getting one, especially as their game library picks up with more titles I have an interest in.

This is all good and well but where is the ability to play media from a USB? Is that ever coming?
