New Xbox One System Software Update in Preview Fixes Headset Issues, Brings More Minor Changes

on July 24, 2015 5:42 PM

Microsoft made a new update to the Xbox One’s system software available for download to preview members, continuing on the track of implementing minor, non user-facing changes with a quick iteration, and fixing an issue with the Turtle Beach Elite 800X headset.

Below you can read the patch notes, courtesy of Program Manager Emily Hanson on the private preview forums:

DETAILS
OS version released: xb_rel_1508.150719-2200
Available: 6:00PM PT 7/22 (2AM GMT 23/7) 
       

CHANGES

  • Turtle Beach Elite 800X Headset Fix: Participants using this headset may have been unable to hear the host when moving from one party to another party. This update contains a fix for this issue.
  • Minor changes (non-user facing)

KNOWN ISSUES

  • Xbox Live Disconnection Issues: We are aware a small number of users may be experiencing disconnection issues, requiring a hard-reboot to reconnect. The team is working on a fix for a future update.
  • Xbox Fitness: When resuming from Instant-On mode and with Xbox Fitness suspended, you may encounter a frozen Kinect preview image, and Kinect interaction will not resume.Workaround: Hard reboot the console.

As usual, if you’re not part of the preview program, but would like to be, you can mention it in the comments (including your gamertag), and another reader might be able to send you an invite.

Just remember that this is a beta testing program, so you understand and accept the responsibility for any issues caused to your console, since preview members do it to make the launch of each patch smoother for everyone else, and not just to get a sneak peek on future updates.
