Latest Xbox One Preview build fixes game installation issues

Xbox Insiders may have previously noticed a problem when downloading updates that entire games would then re-install upon the update’s completion. This issue along with a few others has been fixed in the latest Xbox One Preview build for Alpha, Beta, and Delta members. The full changelog can be read below.


My Games and Apps

• Fixed an issue in which Games on external HDD that are not registered on a new console that have updates do not show in the Updates section of collection.

• Fixed some graphical artifacts, textures, occlusion and compression for certain titles at the platform level.

• Implemented updates to the 4k video pipeline for Netflix and key partners to support 4k VP9 video playback
