Xbox Preview Update Fixes Various Issues

Xbox One

The latest update for the Preview program for Xbox One users has been released by Microsoft. Users can see a number of fixes for both Home and networking. Members of the program can check if the preview build is available by going to settings, system, and then Console info and updates

For those unaware the preview program is how Microsoft tests Xbox One software ideas and services, before they become available to anyone else. Users sign up for it voluntarily, and are not paid anything for testing out new features. However they do get to test out the new features that are being bought around by Microsoft. Here are the details of the fixes
