Xbox One Preview System Update Addresses Some Issues With Cortana and Messaging
Plus other housekeeping stuff, too.
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.
