A new Xbox One Preview build should be landing soon to provide fresh fixes

The Xbox One Summer Update has rolled out to the public, but those of you in the Xbox One Preview still have new builds to look forward to.

This latest update, set to arrive at 6 PM PDT and 1 AM GMT brings some fixes to payments, USB keyboards on the Xbox One S and repairs an issue with Party Chat while using Kinect.

As usual, to force this update go to All Settings, then System, then select Console Info & Updates. As noted by the official Xbox Forums (opens in new tab), the full details are as follows:

DETAILS

OS version released: rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160730-2312

Available: 6:00PM PDT 8/1 (1:00 AM GMT 2/8)

FIXES

Payments & Billing

  • When adding a new payment method, the "View terms" button should now function correctly.

USB Keyboard

  • Resolved an issue which caused the Xbox One S to fail to recognize USB keyboards after powering on.

Party Chat

  • Resolved an issue which could cause party chat to crash when using the Kinect.

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 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.

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.
