A new Xbox One update is coming, bringing changes in from the Xbox One Preview.

The biggest features of this update include the ability to modify the behavior of the Xbox One console's start-up chime, an avalanche of fixes for Universal Windows Platform apps running on the console, and miscellaneous improvements to various aspects of the Xbox One experience.

The new version should bring your OS version to 10.0.14393.1040, updating from 10.0.14393.1027. It should appear on your console some time today.

What's next?

The Xbox One Preview has indeed become more Windows Insider-like in its approach to development. We see builds hit Preview more frequently than we have previously, fixing minor problems while responding to the continuous stream of feedback the Xbox team receives via the Preview Dashboard app.

There are perhaps still a few minor issues with the Xbox One Summer Update, but for the most part, Microsoft is likely looking ahead to the next big update which will bring Looking For Group, Arena, and Clubs to the console.
