Microsoft today released a new Xbox Preview build with bug fixes related to Store, Guide, Cortana, Home and Clubs. Last week, Microsoft released a preview build with new features such as support for text suggestions in virtual keyboard while typing and changes to Arena gameplay.

Full change log of this preview build below.

DETAILS

  • OS version released: rs1_xbox_rel_1610.161021-1900
  • Available: 6:00PM PDT 10/24 (1:00AM GMT 25/10)

FIXES:

Store

  • Resolved an issue which could sometimes prevent the Store from launching.
  • Certain elements of the Store have been streamlined for an improved user experience.
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes.
  • Users with consoles set to the Singapore region (zh-sg or en-sg) should now see all appropriate apps while browsing the Store.

Guide

  • Resolved numerous issues with unlocalized text (strange text characters) appearing in Guide.

Cortana

  • This build includes updates to the console speech recognizer for US and UK users, which reduces time to recognize commands like “Pause”, “Play”, “Mute”, “Yes”, and “No”. In addition, recognition has been improved for phrases such as “Watch NBC” “Watch FOX”, “Go to Netflix”, and “Open YouTube”, and should revert to web or marketplace searches less often.
  • The See-It-Say-It timeout has been extended. This means users will have more time to make selections when saying “Hey Cortana, make a selection” or “Hey Cortana, select”.

Home

  • Resolved an issue which sometimes caused the “Connect to LIVE” section to not appear on Home when no network connection is detected.
  • Uninstalled games and apps should no longer display in the most recently used section on Home.

Clubs

  • Fixed an issue which sometimes caused Clubs you’re participating in to fail to display under “Your clubs”.
  • When attempting to set an image as a Club background, recently created Clubs should no longer fail to display under “Choose a Club”.
  • You should no longer encounter a “Something went wrong” or “That didn’t work” error when attempting to access invitation requests or recommendations.

Once the update is available, you can update by launching the Guide and navigating to All Settings > System > Console info & updates.
