Microsoft releases another Xbox One Preview build - here's what's new

Microsoft today released yet another build for members of the Xbox One Preview Program, which includes mainly fixes. The news comes two weeks after the last update.

Here's the full changelog:

• Resolved an issue which could sometimes prevent the Store from launching.
• Certain elements of the Store have been streamlined for an improved user experience.
• Miscellaneous bug fixes.
• Users with consoles set to the Singapore region (zh-sg or en-sg) should now see all appropriate apps while browsing the Store.

Resolved numerous issues with unlocalized text (strange text characters) appearing in Guide.

• This build includes updates to the console speech recognizer for US and UK users, which reduces time to recognize commands like “Pause”, “Play”, “Mute”, “Yes”, and “No”. In addition, recognition has been improved for phrases such as “Watch NBC” “Watch FOX”, “Go to Netflix”, and “Open YouTube”, and should revert to web or marketplace searches less often.
• The See-It-Say-It timeout has been extended. This means users will have more time to make selections when saying “Hey Cortana, make a selection” or “Hey Cortana, select”.

• Resolved an issue which sometimes caused the "Connect to LIVE" section to not appear on Home when no network connection is detected.
• Uninstalled games and apps should no longer display in the most recently used section on Home.

• Fixed an issue which sometimes caused Clubs you're participating in to fail to display under "Your clubs".
• When attempting to set an image as a Club background, recently created Clubs should no longer fail to display under "Choose a Club".
• You should no longer encounter a "Something went wrong" or "That didn't work" error when attempting to access invitation requests or recommendations.

The build string is rs1_xbox_rel_1610.161021-1900, and given the version number of 1610, it's likely to be available to everyone this month. As we know, the Anniversary Update (AU) for the Xbox One is slated to arrive in two parts, with the first arriving in late July of this year. In case there is any confusion, this build is a preview of the second part of the AU, and it is not Redstone 2.

The Xbox One Preview Program is still invitation-only, so if you want in, you'll have to know someone that's already on it that can invite you. Windows head Terry Myerson had said back in March that the Program would merge with the Windows Insider Program once the Anniversary Update was released, but Dona Sarkar has since confirmed that that will not be happening.
