Today's Xbox One Preview build is rolling out with further tweaks to Home, My Games and Apps

Over the past week, we've seen a continual chain of updates for Xbox One Preview members, with new builds of the operating system arriving almost daily.

As if it's a surprise now, another Xbox One update is on its way to preview members using the latest edition of the dashboard. With the update pushing closer towards its public release, it's paired with a brief list of bug fixes.

Unlike recent Xbox One Preview builds, tonight's release, titled rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160725-1822, will be rolling out slightly later, at 6:30 p.m. PDT.

Here are the fixes arriving as a part of today's update:

FIXES

  • My Games & Apps

Resolved an issue which could cause a blank tile to remain after uninstalling a universal app.

Resolved an issue which could sometimes cause universal apps to fail to launch.

  • Home

Universal app tiles should no longer show up as 0% installation progress on the Home dashboard.

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).

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.

  • Skype

You may be unable to answer calls through Skype notifications.

  • 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, uninstall Netflix, 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 when that app takes its new app update. 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.

Less than a week remains until the release of Windows 10's Anniversary Update, which shortly precedes the public release of August's Xbox One overhaul. If the current momentum continues, we can expect further tweaks and bug fixes up until the public rollout.

  • Why nobody talk about xbox UWP apps? Possibilties, type of apps, media center apps, server apps?, streaming apps, kodi?
  • Wow...yet again. I love the pace of this!
  • Here we go again lol
  • It's great the way things are going but the apps part not working well groove not installing Pandora and Hulu not installing
  • Groove UWP installs fine for me but it just shows me a message to say the UWP app is coming soon and to use the previous app for now. I can't launch the Weather app but it looks like that may be resolved in this build.
  • I managed to get Hulu installed. The new version's menu is waaay more fast. Pandora refuses to install though. Maybe next time.
