I went ahead and signed up. About a day later I was accepted as a beta tester. I suspect there shouldn't be any major issues for my wife and daughters when they're using the One for movies on Netflix or disc.

Well the preview video looked very nice. I can't complain about any of the changes they are making. The improved friend experience is a big deal. Looks like a nice series of UI updates to add functionality.

Its nice to see them leverage the context sensitive menu that you get when you hit the menu button for more options that make sense and add convenience.

Looks like MS are sending out registration invites again as I just got mine in the UK.

I am stuck at 'Loading. Please wait...'

 

What to do?

 

Xbox forums is slow ... is taking forever to load it up.

I had the same problem, quit out of the app and load it again, it worked for me.

It does not have to be snapped. You can unsnap and be in full screen.

I don't think it has to be pinned.

 

Have they changed it so I can play Xbox Music in the background without keeping it pinned?

I don't think the beta update has been pushed out yet.  People are talking about the invitation which is an app.

When it does go out I don't think you can talk about it anyways? Isn't there going to be a NDA? Not that that's really stopped anyone before.
