Here is how things work updating your Xbox One game console:

Scenario #1:

If you’re using Xbox One with the “Instant On” feature, the console will check for updates as soon you turn it off. When the update is available the following will occur:

Xbox One will download the update after is turned off. Once the download completes the console will shut down completely, therefore voice commands won’t work — you’ll need to physically turn on the console. When you turn the system back on, the update will install, and a reboot will happen — If you see the Xbox One logo with the green background, this means that the update is installing –. The installation could take up to 5 minutes, once the Xbox One update is applied, you’ll see the dashboard again.

Now, don’t get scared if you were not home for a few days and then you say “Xbox: On” and nothing happens. You now know that it is possible that the console automatically shut down after downloading the update. SEE ALSO: How to check Xbox One operating system version number

Scenario #2:

If you’re not using the Xbox One “Instant On” feature, you’ll need to manually download and install the update.
