It seems like the folks over at Microsoft are hard at work to get the Windows 10 Anniversary Update out for the Xbox One. Microsoft has been releasing quite a lot of updates for the Xbox One Preview lately, and the company has just pushed yet another update (Build 14393.1008) for preview members today. If you are an Xbox One preview member, you’ll now be able to get the new update (rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160720-1942). Just like most of the recent releases, the latest update for the Xbox One Preview doesn’t introduce any new features, and it only comes with some bug fixes, which are listed below:

  • DLC – Resolved an issue which could cause games with a large number of DLC (Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, Rockband 4, Rocksmith 2014) to take a long time to load.
  • CAST – Resolved an issue which could cause the Guide to crash while CAST is being used in the background.
  • Installation – Installation progress for universal apps should now always display on the Home Dashboard. We also resolved an issue which could sometimes prevent universal apps from being installed.
  • Guide – Resolved an issue which could sometimes cause a user in party chat to show as offline after closing the Guide. This build contains a fix to address a Guide and party chat crash while broadcasting with Twitch. The Guide should no longer fail to launch by navigating to the left on the dashboard or double tapping the Xbox button.
  • Localization – Localization fixes for universal apps and Home.
  • Power & standby – Resolved an issue which could cause the console to crash when entering connected standby.
  • Apps – Resolved an issue which could cause a low-resolution splash screen to display when launching universal apps.Profile – You should now be able to purchase a Gamertag change on the console.
  • Cortana – When using Microsoft Edge in full screen mode, saying “Hey Cortana, go to ” should no longer cause Microsoft Edge to become snapped. Also, parents should now be able to adjust Cortana (speech) settings for child accounts.
  • In-Game Purchases – When launching an in-game marketplace, a progress spinner will now appear while the in-game marketplace is loading.
  • Game DVR – Resolved an issue which could prevent users from creating new game clips.
  • Destiny – Resolved an issue which could sometimes cause Destiny to fail to launch.

The latest update still includes a few known issues, which are listed below:

  • Skype – You may be unable to answer calls through Skype notifications.
  • Netflix – You may experience a “Do you own this game or app?” error when launching or using Netflix if it was installed by another user on the console. Workaround: While signed in as the primary user, uninstall Netflix, navigate to the Store, search for Netflix and select Free to download and install it.
  • Profile – Purchasing a Gamertag change on the console is not functioning in non-US locales at this time. Also, when selecting “Add new” to add a new profile, the add profile interface may take up to 30 seconds to appear.
  • Cortana – When using a language Cortana does not support, you may still see references to Cortana in text.
  • Pins – If you have pins on your Home to movies, TV shows, or music, they will disappear from Home when that app takes its new app update. The pins for the apps will stay on your Home, easy to get to.
  • My Games & Apps – You may encounter an error when attempting to load Ready to Install with a large number of digital games and apps. Additionally, if a universal app version of an app is available, the version which is not currently installed may appear under Ready to Install (causing what appears to be the same app both installed and in Ready to Install).
  • Community Calendar – Links to the Store in Community Calendar event details do not currently function.

If you are an Xbox One Preview member, you can get the latest update for your Xbox One by heading over to All Settings > System > Console info & updates. If the update isn’t available yet, just check back in a few hours and it should be available to download.
