The Xbox Wire site reveals that one of the improvements that's being previewed concerns how the Xbox One itself is being updated. The site states:

After this update, if your console is in Instant On mode, the update will happen automatically and return to standby upon completion. This means you won’t need to power on your console after an update moving forward.

In addition, Microsoft has added an option under the console's system settings that will allow users to go ahead and download any available updates for the Xbox One immediately, without having to wait for it to roll out to users.

Other parts of this preview update will include giving the console's Blu-Ray player 50 Hz video output for content recorded at 50 Hz. Finally there's been some improvements made to the Xbox One controller and headset adaptor that Microsoft says will "reduce audio static and improve wireless connectivity." So far, there's no word on when the update will be released beyond the beta testers.
