Earlier this week, Microsoft released the first set of features coming to the Xbox One with the Windows 10 Creators Update. The company introduced a bunch of new features for the Xbox One to those part of the Xbox Insider Program. The improvements include a slightly revamped dashboard, a new design for the Guide, an improved Cortana features, removal of Snap Mode for better performance, and much more.
Today, Microsoft released a new update for the Xbox One to those on the Xbox Insider program’s Alpha ring. If you were one of the Insiders in the Alpha ring, you will be able to grab the new update on your Xbox One. However, do keep in mind that the latest update is only a bug-fixing update meaning that it doesn’t include any new features. The update does fix some issues related to audio and the Windows Store, so you want to install the update on your Xbox One as soon as you can.
Here’s the changelog:
