  • Have they fixed the cluster fkcu UI yet?
    Can we search by genre yet?
  • I presume you've left feedback on user voice?
  • I hope the put a patch out to optimize Forza Horizon. It gets some terrible lag that makes it almost unplayable.
  • I think they're working on that.
  • My groove is just not working after our last update. I hope this fixes it.
  • Have you made sure you don't have too many devices attached? That caused me problems before.
  • I have four devices. I checked.
  • Hmm, some of my uwp apps won't open too. I'll look into it.
  • Thanks. I reported it, but you know how that goes.
  • wow. need to lay off the red bull dude
  • When they will finally lift the credit card requirements on x360 games. Voted on uservoice, called friends to vote, lots of votes already accumulated and still nothing. Instead Dona Sarkar boasts how they listen to feedback and changed the icon for explorer... Cool...
  • I don't think Donna has jack all to do with this.
  • All I want is my KSP game saves to actually save and play without the game crashing....
  • Is anyone else getting the license check failure when launching a disc based game immediately after the update install? I've had this for the last three updates.
  • Hopefully this will improve the slow UI of the store and stop it crashing, MS should never have shipped it in that state. Playstation/AppleTV would never have allowed such a thing to go live, it was clearly Win10 team ready to push update so must xbox team even though they weren't ready.
  • I'm still waiting for the update that will give us 'Background Music', in an actual USABLE form, because this pathetic excuse for it they've implemented is an absolute joke.
  • Still waiting for "tons of uwp apps" they teased.
  • Hence the term "tease."
  • This update caused issues with my TV. When running cable through Xbox it freezes...running straight to tv it works perfectly Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Can they update it to make it work like it did on the 360, ie. properly.
  • I hope they fixed the external HD issues that were a result of the last update. I just want to be able to use an external HD again so I can back up all my stuff and gtfo of the preview program.
