As seen above, Xbox's Major Nelson first mentioned the update in a Tweet. This time, however, the update does not just smash the usual bug fixes, but rather brings support for redeeming a code. The feature, which was long requested by users of the app, and can now be accessed (along with search) from within the app via the Store link.
So, if you're using the Xbox App, be sure to head over to your app store and press the update button! Even if you're not using the app, we have done you favor and included download links for you below. As always, though, please be sure to come back to WinBeta and drop us a comment with your thoughts on this new update below!
