Members of the Xbox One preview program received a new update last weekend, and it contains some small improvements and bug fixes. In order to install this update, users must head to Settings > System > Console Info & Updates. There, they can check if the latest preview build is available for their console.
These are the details that were posted on the Xbox Preview Forum:
OS version released: rrs1_xbox_rel_1608.160901-1913
Available: 6:00PM PDT 9/3 (1:00 AM GMT 5/9))
With this update, Microsoft resolved issues with Background Music along with a problem that routed users back to the BDE after successful Xbox Live Gold purchases. Also, the performance of background music apps was optimized, and an issue that caused users to experience guide crashes was also resolved.
Soon, an important Xbox Preview update that will introduce new features such as Looking for Group, Clubs, and Arena will be made available, and these additions will improve the social aspects of the Xbox One console.
The Looking For Group feature was announced during Microsoft’s E3 press conference and will allow players to post and search for others. In this way, they will accomplish their goals in different games. Since each game has a hub on Xbox Live, LFG will appear as a new tab under a game’s hub and in that tab, ads will be shown as cards and they will contain unique backgrounds based on the game.
Clubs will also have its own tab and will allow players to find and join different groups. The Club owner and moderators will decide who will join the group as their job will be to prevent or remove trolls from the group.
Arena is a system-level feature that will allow gamers to create tournaments and challenges. Microsoft has already teamed up with eSports groups like ESL, FACEIT and MLG, with the first tournaments to be created will be first-party games such as Killer Instinct and third-party games such as FIFA.
