Seventh Xbox One Preview build of the week brings even more bug fixes

A new update is scheduled to roll out to Xbox One Preview members tonight, with a range of fixes ahead of the update's upcoming public release. As with the majority of recent updates, no new features have been introduced alongside today's build.

Here are the details of the latest update titled rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160718-1902, which should start hitting Xbox One consoles from 6 p.m. PDT.

FIXES

  • Xbox Universal Store

The Terms of Use should no longer appear again after backing out of the purchase interface.

  • CAST

Resolved an issue which could cause the console to crash in response to using the media remote with the CAST app.

  • Home

Resolved an issue which caused a white flash to appear when launching the context menu (pressing menu button) while a game or app is minimized in the large tile on Home.

  • My Games & Apps

Games should no longer appear in the Apps category. Pressing the Xbox button after a game or app finishes installing should now correctly launch the game or app.

  • Localization

Numerous localization fixes for Home, Sign in, and Settings.

CURRENT KNOWN ISSUES

  • Guide

The Guide may fail to launch by navigating to the left on the dashboard or double tapping the Xbox button.

  • Netflix

You may experience a "Do you own this game or app?" error when launching or using Netflix if it was installed by another user on the console. Workaround: While signed in as the primary user, uninstall Netflix, navigate to the Store, search for Netflix and select Free to download and install it.

  • Profile

Users are able to select their own Gamertag at no charge once per account. After this you will be charged for future Gamertag changes. In the current update, any free Gamertag changes will complete successfully. Attempting to purchase a Gamertag change will charge your account, but will not change your Gamertag. Please avoid purchasing a Gamertag change on Xbox One at this time. To successfully change your Gamertag, visit https://account.xbox.com/ChangeGamertag.

When selecting "Add new" to add a new profile, the add profile interface may take up to 30 seconds to appear.

  • Cortana

When using a language Cortana does not support, you may still see references to Cortana in text.

  • Pins

If you have pins on your Home to movies, TV shows, or music, they will disappear from Home when that app takes its new app update. The pins for the apps will stay on your Home, easy to get to.

  • My Games & Apps

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

  • Community Calendar

Links to the Store in Community Calendar event details do not currently function.

In total, this makes the eleventh update to hit the Xbox One Preview Program this month as we gear up for the August 2 Anniversary Update release for Windows 10. With the Xbox One update releasing shortly after, these updates continue to beat out issues ahead of launch.

  • Seriously. Add a "update later" option. The stay offline alternative is retarded.
