You may encounter an error when attempting to load Ready to Install with a large number of digital games and 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).

With under two weeks remaining until the update's expected release to the public, we can anticipate further refinements over the coming days. A number of new universal apps are also expected to appear on the console, including Microsoft's reworked Groove application for the Xbox One.
