Last week Microsoft revealed it would soon allow Xbox One owners to stream TV content to their mobile devices in select markets. While that change is still likely months out, a new update is rolling out today that does affect those Xbox One owners that also own an Android device.

With the latest update, Microsoft is introducing mobile purchases, allowing folks to buy games for their console using the Xbox SmartGlass app. While this feature probably won’t be useful for everyone, it could be ideal for those that are away when a new title comes out, as they will now be able to remotely purchase the game and it will automatically start downloading on the console, at least if you have auto-updates turned on.

Aside from the mobile purchases features, there are a few other changes in the update as well. You can read more about the update over at Major Nelson. Xbox One owners, glad to see more integration between your console and your mobile device? How to do you feel its mobile integration compares to other consoles like the PS4?
