Make Update Sizes Known Before Updating
Yes. I will skip huge updates to single player games due to not having good internet available in my area. It is horrible to want to play a game but be unable due to the download being over 20gb and taking months to download.
It does that you have to turn automatic updates off to see how big the update is. doesnt it?
It already does. Maybe its a setting that you dont have, but on my console it shows the size of the update and asks if youre sure you want to update the game
This would actually be really handy. I've had to stop a couple of updates in the past 6 months, and move entire games over to my external drive, because the update made the game larger than I had space left on the internal HDD.
WITH 4K Enhanced patches for the X these can often sneak up on you...
This HAS to be a feature, I've started downloads just for it to tell me it's like 30Gbs. It's soo dumb
I’m pretty sure this used to be a feature, dunno y they removed it.

This is my number one annoyance with updating games. It seems like such a common sense feature to disclose the size of an update without having to initiate it first . Especially since once you start you cannot play the game or use the app until the download is complete. ALSO, I cannot count how many times I've had to stop a download because it was some insanely large gigabyte size and I didn't have the data allowance on my plan to complete it.
"Download, cancel, uninstall, reinstall-- rinse and repeat." Gets very old very quick.
This already exists - "the size of the update is around ... mb/gb". At least as far as I remember, that's a standard feature for games etc, though I could just be thinking of console updates.
Absolutely! Makes no sense that we can't see the size of the file before update. Annoying as well that there is no simple way to cancel the update if you see that it's gonna take a couple of hours and you want to play the game right now
It tells u on xbox one once it starts u can pause it on the update part of games and app off home page

Agreed! Currently the only way to see update filesize is by starting the update, so that it appears in the download queue, and then you're forced to pause and update at a later time. It's an annoying step that could be easily avoided by providing the filesize beforehand.
