Xbox One S

A new update for the Xbox One has been released in Preview, and this one seems to be fairly substantial, addressing a good number of long standing bugs and glitches in the console’s OS. To be fair, none of the issues that the update fixes are actually deal breakers. They were actually specific enough that most people probably never ran into most of them.

Which, in my books, makes it that much more commendable that Microsoft are trying to address them all. Among the issues that the system update resolves are issues with messaging when you have a low reputation, with the keyboard, and the introduction of Cortana to more regions.

You can check out the full list of updates for yourself below. If you are an Xbox Preview member, you should be able to download the update now.

OS version released: rs1_xbox_rel_1610.161103-1900

• Messaging
When a user attempts to send a message and cannot due to low reputation, that user will now see a dialog informing them of the reason they cannot send messages, and direct them to Xbox Support.

• Cortana
• Speech recognition for France, Italy, Germany, and Spain has been updated in this build to better recognize your voice commands. If you are located in one these locales, we encourage you to opt in to Cortana via the Cortana app in My games & apps. As you use Cortana we collect field data, allowing us to improve the Cortana experience for everyone.
• Groove Music should no longer crash when launched via Cortana.

• Narrator

Resolved an issue which caused OneGuide to crash if launched while Narrator is active.

• Virtual Keyboard
Resolved an issue which could sometimes cause the virtual keyboard to stop recognizing input.

• Settings

The Detailed Network Statistics page should no longer appear blank if Xbox Live is experiencing an outage at the same time.

    No fix for the UHD Blu-ray drive then?

      The best solution is to pack it up in the original box and return it with the purchase receipt where it will be exchanged for a newer one suffering from a different problem altogether. Meanwhile the returned one will be resealed and resold as new to the next customer. The next customer will then wonder how his brand new console got all these free games that he didn’t pay for. Hilariousness!

      You will laugh at this. My sister bought the Xbone S last night and bought some UHD-Blu-rays that was part of a store deal. Got home and setup the console.

      Last night she sat down to watch a film with her partner only to see the light bleed problems and heard a grinding noise while playing the disc, and then within nearly an hour of watching the film the drive failed.

      She took it all back today and got a full refund.

      Oh wow. That’s not good at all. Quality control has never been a strong point with these Xbox branded electronics. Sorry to hear she had to go through all that.

      They just gave her a full refund so it wasn’t that bad, but to setup the console and plan your night in to watch a film only to be left with a faulty console and no film must have been gutting.

    • crazy_black_man-

      It’s absokutely unacceptable with today’s solid state electronics. But it IS an Xbox console just the same. The Xbox circlejerk community would say “how dare you blame the Xbox One, blame the movie industry!
