New Xbox One System Update for Preview Members

New Xbox One System Update in Preview

Microsoft have released the second iteration of the Xbox One August system software update, and like the first it comes with non user-facing changes, A new update for the August preview is being released to all Preview participants beginning yesterday.

You can see the patch notes as posted on the private preview forums:


If your console is in Instant-On mode, it will download and install the update and reboot to standby.

NOTE: Once the update is available to your wave (Today is only available to the initial wave), you can manually begin the update by navigating to Settings > System and selecting System Update.

If your console hasn’t downloaded and installed the update by 1:00AM PT 07/19/2015, you will be prompted to do so at that time.


OS version released: xb_rel_1508.150714-2200
Available: 6:00PM PT 7/17 (2AM GMT 18/7) 


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.

If you’re wondering what all these small updates are for we are to, I’m sure we might hear some more about the August update at Gamescom.
