According to a report today from GameSpot, Xbox One users who don’t utilize the console’s “Instant On” feature will have to wait until Thursday to download a mandatory system update addressing issues with the next-gen console’s multiplayer capabilities and dashboard performance, among other problems.

The update is currently available for the Xbox One owners using the “Instant On” feature, which allows for automatic update checks while the machine is in a low-power state, as of 8 p.m. EST today.

However, in an update to his blog, Xbox Live programming director Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb said those not using the Xbox One “Instant On” feature will be required to download the update after 4 a.m. EST on Dec. 12.

According to the Major Nelson blog, the update addresses issues including:

  • Users coming in and out of connected standby with SmartGlass
  • Multiplayer issues involving rejoining games
  • Inconsistent notifications
  • Dashboard performance
  • Improvements to Xbox One’s TV, system update, and content update services
  • Improving connectivity through an update to the wireless networking driver

Hryb also said Microsoft has “quite a few” updates planned for 2014 based on community feedback.
