New Xbox One Preview build fixes billing and chat issues

A new update has just rolled out for Xbox One owners enrolled in the Xbox One Preview Program. This preview operating system (version rs1_xbox_rel_1608.160730-2312) fixes several issues with billing, party chat, and USA USB keyboards but there are still some bugs to be ironed out.

Here are the release notes:


Payments & Billing

When adding a new payment method, the “View terms” button should now function correctly.

USB Keyboard

Resolved an issue which caused the Xbox One S to fail to recognize USB keyboards after powering on.

Party Chat

Resolved an issue which could cause party chat to crash when using the Kinect.

Current Known Issues

My Games & Apps

If a universal app version of an app is available, the version which is not currently installed may appear under Ready to Install (causing what appears to be the same app both installed and in Ready to Install).

You may encounter an installation error (0x800700002) when attempting to install or update universal apps.

Workaround: Uninstall and reinstall the app. If you have the app installed on both the internal hard drive and an external hard drive, be sure to uninstall from both.


If you have pins on your Home to movies, TV shows, or music, they will disappear from Home. The pins for the apps will stay on your Home, easy to get to.

The Xbox One Preview Program is used to test certain features and versions of the Windows 10-based operating system with a small group of users before rolling them out to the general public. While being a member can be a good way to try features unavailable to most Xbox One owners, its main aim is for testing and experiencing bugs and glitches is a common experience for most.
