New Xbox One System Software Update Hits Preview; Brings Minor Changes and Fixes

Microsoft has released a new Xbox one system software update for preview members. The update brings some “non-user facing” changes to the platform and fixes for a handful of known issues.

Patch notes are posted below for OS version xb_rel_1508.150714-2200:


  • Minor changes (non-user facing).


  • Mass Effect Backward Compatibility: When streaming Mass Effect using Twitch through Snap, a black bar is output on the stream output (both in the browser and through the Twitch app).
  • Turtle Beach Elite 800X Headset: Participants using this headset are unable to hear the host when moving from one party to another party.
  • Xbox Fitness: When resuming from Instant-On mode and with Xbox Fitness suspended, you may encounter a frozen Kinect preview image, and Kinect interaction will not resume.Workaround: Hard reboot the console.

Microsoft has also enabled Xbox One game streaming for Windows 10 and players can now use this feature via the Xbox App. Windows 10 will soon be released publicly, but for now it only available for preview members.

For gamers, we also have a list of all known Windows 10 compatible games, including Arma 3, Batman Arkham Origins and many more.
