Another Xbox One Preview build is rolling out, one day after the console's Summer Update

The Xbox One Summer Update only rolled out to the public yesterday, but that hasn't stopped the Xbox team dropping yet another build to members of the Preview Program.

Despite only delivering one fix, today's update is notable due to the small window between the previous build's public release and the announcement of today's Preview build. The update, titled rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160729-1700, will begin rolling out to Preview Program members at 6 p.m. PDT.

Here is the changelog for today's update:


  • My Games & Apps

Resolved an issue where Skyrock app was unusable after updating.


  • 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).

You may encounter an an installation error (0x800700002) when attempting to install or update universal apps. Workaround: Uninstall and reinstall the app. If you have the app installed on both the internal hard drive and an external hard drive, be sure to uninstall from both.

The following games may appear under Apps instead of Games: Kinect Sports Rivals, Kinect Sports Rivals Hub, Nutjitsu, Threes, Voice Commander.

  • 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, navigate to the Store, search for Netflix and select Free to download and install it.

  • Profile

When selecting "Add new" to add a new profile, the add profile interface may take up to 30 seconds to appear.

  • Pins

If you have pins on your Home to movies, TV shows, or music, they will disappear from Home. The pins for the apps will stay on your Home, easy to get to.

  • Community Calendar

Links to the Store in Community Calendar event details do not currently function.

It's interesting to see another Xbox One Preview build dropping so soon after the public roll-out of the Xbox One Summer Update. It's still unknown whether this regular pace will continue going forward, with another major Xbox One update scheduled to arrive later this year.
