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. New Wi-Fi firmware updates have also been deployed for the Xbox One X and Xbox One S, promising improved performance and stability.
For those who use the Xbox One's "Instant On" mode, the update will begin automatically downloading to your console when ready. If you choose to manually install the build, navigate to "All Settings > System > Console Info & Updates" and check for an update.
