New Xbox One update lets users buy Xbox 360 games

A new Xbox One update allows users to purchase backwards-compatible Xbox 360 games and chat with up to 16 players at once.

Sony has already announced that Remote Play will soon be making its way to the PC and Mac, and now Microsoft has fired back with a new Xbox One update that expands chat capability and lets users buy backwards compatible games.
Microsoft introduced its backwards compatibility feature last year, which allows users to insert compatible 360 discs into their console and trigger the download of a compatible game.

Now, users will be able to access lists of older-generation titles as they do digital Xbox One titles.
Further, the console’s Party Chat feature has been expanded to not only allow players to listen to conversations as through headphones and speakers simultaneously, but further allows for a chat group to include 16 players instead of the standard 12.
Gamers will now be able to access their Xbox Achievements from the Xbox One Guide, while the limit on Game DVR recordings has been upped from 30 seconds all the way to 5 minutes.
Users who are members of Microsoft’s Xbox One Preview Program can access the update today, while the final update will roll out over the coming weeks.
