A new Xbox One Preview build is going live shortly with fixes for UWP, Game DVR and more

A fresh build will be heading out today for those of us in the Xbox One Preview at the usual time slot of 6 PM PDT / 2 AM BST.

The information comes from Xbox's Brad Rossetti on Twitter, who notes the update will include various fixes.

Here are the patch notes, as detailed by the Xbox Forums.


OS version released: rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160805-1737

Available: 6:00PM PDT 8/8 (1:00 AM GMT 9/8)


  • Payment & Billing

You can now add PayPal as a payment option on Xbox One! To add PayPal:

1. Navigate to Settings > Account > Payment & billing and select Add a payment option.

2. OR when purchasing content from the Store, on the purchase confirmation screen select Change > Add a new payment method > PayPal.


  • Universal Apps

Resolved an issue which could sometimes cause universal apps to crash when launched for the first time.

  • Game DVR

Resolved an issue which prevented users from capturing or editing clips in certain apps.

  • Pins

Resolved an issue which could cause unsupported media pins to remain on Home after an app updates to a universal app.

  • My Games & Apps

This build contains a fix to address an issue in which certain games (Nutjitsu, Threes, Voice Commander) appeared under Apps instead of Games.


  • 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).

Microsoft is putting the finishing touches on various aspects of the Xbox One Summer Update, beyond the OS itself. Background music has been implemented, but Groove Music is still in preview as of writing. The Universal Windows Platform is fully live on Xbox One, but only a few select developers can push their apps to the console. Cortana has also injected some extra functionality into the Xbox One, but she's missing key features such as reminders, and she can't tie into apps like she can on Windows 10.

Windows 10 convergence is here, and while there's still work to be done, the pace of updates is very encouraging.
