Xbox One Insider Preview build 15058 brings a new update screen, other fixes

Xbox One Insider Preview build 15058 is now available to those users in the Preview Alpha Ring and it brings with it a feature that has been teased for a while now, an improved update screen.

Unlike the current update screen used when downloading and installing updates on Xbox One consoles with the normal/public operating system, this improved screen will provide more information on what’s included in an update as well as any important changes it will make to the system. In addition to the new written details, a link to a video containing more information on an update and its features will also be presented to users once their update is installed and their system restarts for the first time.

Also changed with this Preview build is fixes for the Xbox app to improve game streaming and several issues which you can read about here in the official release notes:

Controller: Upon resuming from connected standby, you may be prompted to update your controller firmware when no update is available.

Cortana: Cortana may take a long time to respond when activated while playing certain games.

Notifications: Some users may not receive certain types of notifications.

Game Clips: After capturing a game clip, the game clip fails to automatically post to the Activity Feed (if your profile is configured to do so). Workaround: Manually view game clips in Profile > Captures > Manage captures and post to the Activity Feed.

EA Access: The EA Access app may indicate you are not an EA Access subscriber when you are. This does not affect your ability to download or play games from the Vault, or receive discounts on EA titles.

Settings – Ease of Access: When enabling the Mono output setting in Ease of Access – Audio, Settings becomes unresponsive, crashes, and fails to launch on subsequent attempts. Workaround: To launch Settings, perform a hard reset (hold down the button on the front of the console for five seconds until it fully powers down, then power it back on).

Settings – Display & sound: The Audio output page is under construction and some of the new settings are not yet functional. New support is planned for Dolby Atmos for home theater, Dolby Atmos for headphones, and more in upcoming builds. An announcement will be made when these new features are ready to try out; enabling these settings now will have no effect.

Wireless Display: The Wireless Display app fails to launch and immediately crashes to Home.

Xbox One Insider Preview builds are available to Xbox One owners enrolled in the Xbox Insiders program, an opt-in service which help’s Microsoft test versions of the console’s operating system and features before rolling them out to the general public.
