Xbox One Preview update

The next Xbox One update you get is going to bring better changes to the platform that at least some of the most recent ones that Microsoft has released.

Operating system version th2_xb_rel_1602.160125-1900 has been released to the preview program members today and it brings the talked about Moveable Pins feature alongside a couple of other changes like the return of the Gamerscore leaderboard, as well as the addition of sports in the OneGuide section.

The update went live precisely at 6:00PM PST on January 28 which translates into 2:00AM GMT on January 29 i.e. today i.e. my birthday!

In terms of fixes, the new Xbox One update attends to an issue where the console would incorrectly recognize Blu Ray Discs and DVDs as Audio CDs. After the update goes like you will not have to swear at your console for doing that.

Back to the new features, here is what the preview program members have got before everyone else:

  • Move Pins – You can now move and reorganize pins on your Xbox One dashboard. To do this, highlight a pin and press the Y button, or, highlight a pin and press the Menu button, then select Move from the app menu.
  • Gamerscore Leaderboard – The Gamerscore leaderboard is back! To access the Gamerscore leaderboard, launch the Quick Guide (navigate left on the dashboard or double press the Xbox button), highlight your signed in profile, select My profile from the dropdown, and navigate to the Achievements tab.
  • Sports in OneGuide – OneGuide now has its own dedicated Sports area! Sports is consistently one of the most watched type of programming on Xbox One.Consistent with our goal with OneGuide of enabling you to spend less time searching and more time watching, we’ve created a single destination for you to browse Sports video content. Dive into live sports events and programming from both apps and your cable or set-top box provider in the Watch Now and Trending on Live TV sections.
