New Insider build (1802.180129-1625) adds download progress to Xbox One’s Guide

A new update has begun to roll out to Preview Alpha Xbox Insiders. This latest build, 1802.180129-1625, fixes a range of bugs involving UI glitches and crashes but it also adds something that a few gamers might find useful; a download/installation progress bar in the Xbox One’s popup Guide that also acts as a shortcut to the installation queue. Here’s the full release notes.

New Features:

Installation Progress in Guide

In-progress installations are now visible from a tile at the bottom of the Guide. When selected, this tile opens a new interface showing items in the queue and their status, and allowing some basic functions like pausing or cancelling the installation.

Fixes:

Profile

Fixed an issue which caused some elements in Profile to appear misaligned.

Home and Dashboard

Resolved an issue which sometimes caused unexpected crashes.

Miscellaneous

Miscellaneous fixes and improvements.
