A brand new Xbox 360 update was released recently by Microsoft and it brings you a number of new features; some of them were announced while others weren’t. For instance, it was revealed by Major Nelson that you will now get an additional 2GB of cloud storage on your console.

Larry Hryb, the Director of Programming for Xbox Live announced that the feature will go live today:

Starting today you will now be able to use up to 2GB of Cloud Storage on your Xbox 360. Use your Cloud Storage to save the game saves you want to bring with you to Xbox One for Xbox One Compatible games.

Moving on, he also revealed that the Xbox 360 update is going to allow you to “connect your Xbox 360 to a network that requires a Terms of Use acceptance.” This will only work with the latest version of Internet Explorer though.

Last in the list of newly announced features was the ability to Redeem Codes right from Messages. For instance, when you are sent an Xbox Live Marketplace code to Messages, you will not have to go anywhere else to make it work.

Other features that were already announced for the Xbox 360 update include a slew of changes to the activity feed. the ability to see what your friends are doing, access to movies and TV through Microsoft Movies & TV and Groove Music, and a display of your Microsoft account balance while you are in the Marketplace.
