By Andy Mills, 7 months ago
Microsoft has rolled out a new update to those in the Alpha ring of the Insider program on Xbox One. While it's not the biggest of updates, it does fix a few issues, as well as introducing one small new feature: Installation Progress in Guide.

The full update is as follows:

New Features
Installation Progress in Guide
In-progress installations are now visible from a tile at the bottom of the Guide. When selected, this tile opens a new interface showing items in the queue and their status, and allowing some basic functions like pausing or cancelling the installation.

Fixes
Profile
Fixed an issue which caused some elements in Profile to appear misaligned.

Home and Dashboard
Resolved an issue which sometimes caused unexpected crashes.

Miscellaneous
Miscellaneous fixes and improvements.

Known Issues
Games Installation
Games that are installed fail to launch. Workaround: If the games are installed to an external drive please copy the game to the internal drive or attempt to delete the title and redownload to fix the launch error.

Display
We are investigating the inaccurate RGB colors that have been reported when displaying in 4K HDR mode when playing a UHD disc.

Avatars on Home
Users wishing to represent themselves as an avatar can do so by changing their settings under My profile > Customize profile > Show my avatar.

Tournaments
  • The left and right navigation for selecting date and time during Tournament creation is currently reversed when the console language is set to Arabic or Hebrew.
  • Left and right navigation in Tournament twists is reversed when the console language is set to Arabic or Hebrew.
  • Left and right navigation in the bracket view of Tournaments is reversed when the console language is set to Arabic or Hebrew.
The update is currently in the process of rolling out, so if you're an Alpha Insider and haven't received it yet, it will be making its way to you sooner rather than later.
