Xbox One RS4 update: Hands-on with Microsoft Edge, new sound effects, and more (Video)

Recently, Microsoft updated the Xbox One's Alpha Ring for Insiders, granting access to a few new features. We now have the UWP version of Microsoft Edge, bringing improvements to video playback on certain websites, and file uploads and downloads. We also have new sound effects which support surround sound set-ups, and some other refinements and improvements across the board.

While there's no sign of some of the older promised features, like the new Avatars system, they could be activated as we head closer to general release, expected some time this Spring.

  • I like the new sound effects. They seem more lighter, or mellow. I hardly ever use the Edge browser on the X1S, but I do use it on the PC along with Opera.
  • I'm down with the new sound effects, the moment I first heard them I was quite taken to them. I do like change especially on the little things.
