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.

  • On fire..
  • Wats skyrock
  • hopefully they get rid of the ads and replace it with recent apps so we can have more rooom for pin apps and then let us lable or group the apps in section   and replace my games and apps with file explorer so we can get games, apps, videos, music, picture and document folder    
  • Feedback Xbox via user voice. Better luck then commenting on wc. Fyi
  • He is sharing his thoughts with us. This is the comment section. Posted from PornHub.
  • Get rid of ads? I wouldn't hold my breath . . . . 
  • Updates are good
  • Go to user feedback and tell them.
  • He is sharing his thoughts with us.
  • I had a weird issue where I couldn't get to Home at all. It's like Home was locked or crashing. I had to unplug it to clear. I hope this build fixed it.
  • someone add me to this 'Preview Program'. pls. My GT is boss1307
  • add Why Logic & then ill invite you because you can only add friends.
  • What? This doesn't make any sense, I swear they released an update to the public so that's the final build? Are you telling me there's bugs in the final build
  • With anything, large scale release flags unintended problems. Also remember, the preview builds were stacked on top of one another, with each build being applied after the last. For consumers, they've jumped straight from the november update to the finished one, and that may have caused previously unseen problems.
  • While that is certainly true, the current known issues have been known for several builds already. I find it rather disappointing they would release such a buggy update to the public tbh.
  • Yeah, here's another bug in the final build: users with gray profile color schemes can't rate games in the new Store because it's impossible to distinguish the star values, since their backgrounds are also gray.
  • I've been playing Fallout New Vegas BC on the One for about 2 weeks now.  After today's update I am unable to play it :(  It stays on main menu saying "loading downloadable content. Please wait."   I already had/have all dlc installed!  I uninstalled and reinstalled them again and it still stays on main menu with loading....message.
  •   Is there anyone who would invite me to insider program? My GT is ESO RLMMER. Thanks :)
  • post reply in forums to get an invite
  • Heisenberg CZE and nmrajarajan I'll invite you guys to the program once I get in from work. But remember its all down to Microsoft if they let you in
  • Thank you Darren 4 your time :)
  • Ok I've invited you guys
  • Is it just me having freezes and not able to start games after Summer Update? Did an offline system reinstall from USB, no luck. Soft/hard reset do not help. Not an Insider, any hints, please?
  • OK, mystery solved. Faulty external HD. After moving games back to internal, everything works just fine. No complains toward SU anymore.  
  • Just about to play warzone firefight and boom update!
