First Look at the New Xbox One Store and Twitter Video Share; Now Available to Preview Members
Microsoft has rolled out a new version of the November Xbox One dashboard update preview, and this time it included some quite interesting additions. Here are the patch notes:
- OS version released: xb_rel_1411.141026-2100
- A fix for an issue some users noted with using OneGuide and OTA (Over the air) SD Channels
- The new Xbox One Store experience is available. Be sure to check it out!
- Share to Twitter Upgrades: Sharing to Twitter will now result in a link to your account and video shared, rather than a link to Xbox.com. Try it out and show off those videos!
- Game invites between 1411-1410 builds will show as the Store icon when the invite is received.
- The invite functionality should still work as expected. The teams are aware and working on a fix.
- You cannot join games in progress between 1411 and 1410.
- The icons in Friends, Party, and Profile to join games in progress with users on the General Public Release (1410) will be greyed out or missing. As a workaround, please have your friend on 1410 send you a game invite.
- As a special treat, all Xbox One Preview members have received guaranteed access to the Evolve Big Alpha on Xbox One! Be sure to check out the Evolve Big Alpha thread for the details.
- The Xbox Preview Dashboard got an update! In My Stats, you’ll now be able to toggle the Preview Points Leaderboards between Friends (People you are friends with who are in the program) and Global (the entire program – EVERYONE!). Keep taking surveys, completing Quests, Quick Polls, and rating updates to climb the leaderboards!
If you’re not a member of the update preview, here’s how the new sharing to twitter looks like, going directly to the video.

It’s a bit spartan, but definitely more functional.
As for the new Xbox One marketplace experience, below you can see quite a few pictures taken directly from my console to give you a glimpse on what’s to come.
