The Microsoft Xbox One console is receiving a new system update today that features a new estimated Download Queue feature, as well as several fixes and improvements. There is no blog post announcing the update or detailed release notes on the Xbox support website, but Xbox Insider Program manager Brad Rossetti announced the public release on Twitter a few minutes ago.
Thank you very much to all the Xbox Insiders members that we sent 1908 to GA today. All users can now enjoy the estimated download queue feature and many fixes. Now in 1910 and beyond!

The new estimated download time feature that comes with this update will allow Xbox One owners to view the estimated time to finish downloads on My games and applications. This is a useful feature if you have many items in the download queue, as you can make an informed decision about which games and applications to download first.
This is the only new feature in this compilation, and the Xbox team did not go into details about the "many solutions" that Rossetti mentioned in his tweet. If you are an Xbox Insider, Microsoft sent the first preliminary version of 1910 to Preview Alpha Insiders yesterday, and this next update should be much more important. Microsoft has already begun testing a redesigned Xbox dashboard that will replace the top navigation bar with four buttons to access the Microsoft Store, Xbox Game Pass, Mixer and Xbox Community. Cortana is also being removed from the Xbox One operating system, as Microsoft will soon redirect users to the Xbox ability for Alexa and Cortana on other devices.
Microsoft is also expected to start testing the new console streaming feature announced at E3 2019 , which will complement Microsoft's Project xCloud service that will not require ownership of an Xbox console, Project xCloud is expected to undergo public testing in October, but Microsoft will offer public demonstrations at gamescom in Cologne, Germany, next week.
