  1. Xbox One Auto downloading games and apps!


    My Xbox One every so often will auto download game demos and apps and even games with gold without my knowledge!

    My Xbox is set to 'Instant on mode' and sometimes I will go on after work and have 2,3 or even 4 things downloaded on my Xbox!

    A couple of times I have been playing a game and got notifications saying that things are ready to play or open.

    No one else has access to my Xbox so I know its not that, I did however buy the Xbox second hand. The Xbox is set to my Home Xbox.

    I am pretty sure I factory reset the Xbox when I got it, so just a guess that the previous owner, if had now got another Xbox, that one would be set as his Home Xbox, ruling out the auto download to my Xbox as if we were 'sharing'.

    Any help would be appreciated as I would rather not factory reset my Xbox unless I absolutely had to.

    :)

    Xbox One doesn't auto update games or apps

    My x1 has never auto updated games or apps can someone please help?

    It's a launch edition x1, instant on is setup and the auto update downloading box checked. Firmware is up-to-date.

    Unfortunately my x1 has never auto updated which is real annoying

    It does sound as if the console is still set as the previous owner's Home console. That is the only way you would be downloading anything you haven't set to download yourself. He may not have gotten a new console and changed that.

    My Xbox downloads the Games for Gold on its own too. I got my Xbox new so I doubt it has something to do with the previous owner

    Add on purchased from xbox store didn't download

    Hi DamonS1,

    Sorry to hear you're having troubles with the Store Purchases.

    Normally the Games/APP's should auto-download, but you can maybe double check your settings to make sure the remote install option is enabled, and that your Xbox is set up to auto-download updates and games.

    These settings are done under the Xbox Settings.

    I hope your game downloads and your daughter enjoys many hours playing.

    Have a good one.

    I've activated my Titanfall Beta though Xbox Live, but it didn't say it was queued to download...

    just fyi, there is no auto download for Xbox One. you can queue it up but it will not begin to download until you physically tell it to. not even when you power your console on. you'll still have to go into your My Games & Apps to start the download.
