Microsoft has let rip the next dashboard update for Xbox One users in an effort to repair the broken crap on the latest next-gen console. Posted on to the Xbox.com Preview Forums was a confirmation of improvements and fixes that you can download today on Xbox LIVE. Non preview users will receive the update in due course.
We have started to deploy the latest update for you to preview: 1405 (xb_rel_1405.140506-2200). Consoles that are in standby mode will be able to install the update starting at 6:00PM PDT on May 9th. If you want it right away, feel free to use the new System Updates button after 6PM! Simply check Settings>System, and if you see System update, click it to start your update. Consoles that have not received the update in standby mode or via the manual update button by 1:00AM PDT on May 11th will be prompted to install the update when they connect to Xbox Live.
Let’s take a look at some of the changes and fixes you’ll be seeing in this preview!
Improvements and Fixes
- Updates to help address issues where Game DVR clips may be recorded without audio.
- Underlying OS changes required to enable planned 1405 features.
- Get System Update button change. This update changes how the system update button works under Settings->System. Now the button will say “No update available” and be greyed out when there is no update, and it will say “Update console” and be active when an update is available.
- Update to address issues some issues users noticed where Party Chat would be quiet unless the Party App is snapped.
Hopefully at some point in the lifetime of Xbox One the return of being able to send users voice messages may make an appearance.
