Xbox One Receives Party Chat, Game DVR And System Update Tweaks
Also addresses Game DVR and Update Console issues.
Microsoft have released a small patch for the ongoing May beta preview for the upcoming software update. The preview fixes a number of issues including party chat and several system updates. The following patch notes were released by Microsoft.
“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,” reads the note on the preview forum.
The entire list of fixes can be found below:
- 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.
Microsoft has been consistently pushing to make Xbox One a better console by releasing these previews. Hopefully this will continue throughout the life cycle of the Xbox One.
