While Microsoft continues to test the next Xbox One update among select Xbox Insiders, a new batch of changes is rolling out to consoles worldwide. The latest build, now available to the public, delivers a range of fixes upon last year's fall update to all Xbox One owners.
Although no new major additions are making a debut with this update, fixes are being deployed across several console features. Among the highlights are fixes to Party chat, Dolby Atmos and the Microsoft Store, alongside wireless fixes across the console family.
