First Xbox One Update for July Released in Preview, Prepares for New Features; We'll See More at E3

The first patch of July’s Xbox One update has just been released to preview members, and below you can find the patch notes directly from the private preview forums, apparently preparing for things to come:


OS version released: xb_rel_1507.150610-2200
Available: 6:00PM PT 6/12 (2AM GMT 13/6) 


  • Small tweaks under the hood to prepare for features to come.

Of course, there’s a reason why this release is small, and Program Manager Emily Hanson mentioned it in another post, explaining that at E3 we’ll get the actual meat:

“The July update preview is here! This first update is just getting ready for features to come, so if it feels like there’s nothing yet, don’t worry – E3 is just around the corner, and you’ll get to see what we’ve been up to!”

The insider preview of Windows 10 also got a small update at the same time, but it did not involve the Xbox App.

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.
