Microsoft began rolling out the Xbox One's April system update today, Xbox director of programming Larry Hryb announced on his blog.

This month's update delivers troubleshooting features to the party chat app; game hub links within items in the console's activity feed; revised achievement notifications; and a new What's On section in the dashboard. What's On, which is available in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., highlights popular videos, game broadcasts, games, movies and more. It also lists trending TV shows for users who have configured their OneGuide.

Hryb noted that voice messages and dedicated servers for party chat — two features that Microsoft was testing in the Xbox One preview program for April — aren't included in this month's update; they will remain in the test phase for now.

"We continue to fine-tune them based on feedback from preview program members," said Hryb.
