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.

Apparent UK Price Hike On The Beta Dashboard Is “Unintended Error”

Keeping in mind that there is an NDA on the new dashboard beta, however as soon as a purchase is made this comes under contract of sale law in the UK and it’s process of being tied to an NDA is questionable under the sale of goods act in the UK for consumers.  Those who attempted to make purchases from the beta dashboard in the UK have noticed a reported 30% price hike!

The good news is that Microsoft tells Joystiq. It’s just part of the beta process – so perhaps you should hold off your purchases until this error is sorted.

“We are aware that select regions experienced some incorrect game title pricing in the Xbox Live beta. This was an unintended error that we are in the process of fixing,” a Microsoft spokesperson said. “We’ll be reimbursing impacted beta participants for the difference in what was paid and what the price will be after the update is available to all members.

“Of note, beta programs give us a chance to test, fix and correct issues like this. As with all betas, we take the learnings from our program and make corrections and adjustments prior to the update being available to all members. As always, we appreciate the participation of our beta customers in helping us launch and build great products.”
