The dashboard has been tweaked on the Xbox One Preview, performance fixes coming

A very small (possibly the smallest) patch of this preview wave will be heading out shortly for Xbox Preview members.

This update is bringing performance fixes for the home dashboard, which received some visual tweaks in yesterday's update.

Yesterday's build segmented the recent apps list to highlight each app's unique functions. Games now highlight their respective Game Hubs, as well as their achievement score. There's quite a bit of empty space, but the game art makes the recent list look a bit more vibrant, almost resembling a populated Start Menu on Windows 10.

The details of this evening's upcoming patch are as follows (via Xbox):


OS version released: rs1_xbox_rel_1610.161105-1400

Available: 6:00PM PDT 11/6 (2:00AM GMT 7/11)



  • Performance fixes when navigating Home.

Hopefully, this update wave will hit public consoles sooner rather than later, bringing Looking For Group, Clubs, Arena, and much more to the community.
