Send us notifications via SmartGlass when a system update is available, that way we can download remotely

I think it'll be great to download system updates when away from home. Smart glass should send a notification to our smartphone.

    Can we have the ability to see when a console update is in progress via smart glass when we are away from home outside of our WiFi signal. Getting a notification of when our console is updating and a message letting us know if the update was successful or not.

    yes the xbox os gearing to auto update but how about it sending a notification once the update is complete so we know what is going on

    what about when game updates or app updates become available can we see them through the smart glass

    Yes, as the other comments stated your xbox one is geared to automatically update..that was all set up through a quest in the preview program..

    This is a valued idea for me, I would love more Info on when Microsoft are updating certain apps and such, especially smart glass. I find smart glass is very slow and outdated when it comes to content and add on releases. Fable anniversary through smart glass was horrendous and barely worked, compared to a 3rd party app like assassins creed companion app , the store and relevant updates on dlc and news was tied in very well when it comes to developers making it, smart glass should be like this tailored to each game and more in sync.

    Set your console to autodownload updates.

    I haven't manually updated in months, I just turn it on sometimes and there is new stuff. Why not do that instead?
