Microsoft Corporation released a new Xbox One update to its preview users. The new update, dubbed rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160714-2120, includes fixes to My Games and Apps. Earlier, the company released an update allowing gamers to disable Cortana voice commands and use basic Xbox voice commands, according to a report published on MSPoweruser. The new update focuses on fixing known issues and doesn’t have any new features.
The new update is related to My Games and Apps. It is designed to resolve an issue which sometimes caused purchases not to appear in games until the title was restarted, Microsoft said in a statement.
My Games & Apps: Resolved an issue which sometimes caused purchases not to appear in games until the title was restarted. Performance improvement when scrolling with large collections (no focus loss, no excessive load times)
In addition, Microsoft is trying to fix some known issues. Here is the company’s announcement:
Xbox Preview Dashboard: You may encounter an “Unexpected error” screen when attempting to launch the Xbox Preview Dashboard app or Report a problem. Blu-Ray Player: When watching a video with the Blu-Ray Player, the screen may dim after a short period of inactivity. Payment and Billing: You may be unable to add PayPal as a payment option. Cortana: When using a language Cortana does not support, you may still see references to Cortana in text. Pins: If you have pins on your Home to movies, TV shows, or music, they will disappear from Home when that app takes its new app update. The pins for the apps will stay on your Home, easy to get to.
