The Xbox One will be able to download content automatically while you are away from the system, according to a tweet from vice president of Xbox Marc Whitten.
“Yes! Of course you can download while you are away,” Whitten tweets. “#xboxone – Always up to date, always your console. The beauty of low power mode!”

This means that while you are away from your Xbox One, you can look up something on the Xbox Live marketplace on your web-enabled device and tell it to download directly to your Xbox One. It will begin the download immediately in “low power mode.”
The Xbox One is slated for release this November in 13 countries. Recently, it was revealed that eight of those countries would not have support for voice commands at launch.
