If you’re a member of the Xbox One Preview program, Microsoft has released another new preview build for you to test on your Xbox One (via Windows Central). This latest update comes just a few days after a previous release that brought a Paypal payment option plus various fixes to the Xbox One System software.

Yesterday’s update was once again announced by Microsoft’s Brad Rossetti on Twitter, and the latest preview build (rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160808-1700) should improve game stability, fix localization issues and bugs in the Groove UWP app. Here is the full changelog below:


  • Groove Music: Resolved issues which could sometimes cause Groove Music to crash.
  • Localization: Resolved an issue which could sometimes cause the titles of universal apps (Movies & TV) to not appear in the console’s selected language.
  • Miscellaneous: General stability improvements for games.

Current known issues

  • My Games & Apps: 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).

If you’re a member of the Xbox One Preview program, you can download this latest build on your console by heading over to All Settings > System > Console info & updates. Let us know in the comments if this latest build runs better than the previous one.
