Microsoft released today a new preview build of the Xbox One’s system software for those who are part of the preview program. The new build is numbered th2_xb_rel_1603.160311-1900, and comes with a few fixes.

You can read the full patch notes below, directly from the preview forums.


OS version released: th2_xb_rel_1603.160311-1900
Available: 6:00PM PST 3/14 (1:00AM GMT 15/3)


• Party Chat
Fixed an issue which caused navigating the party menu in the Guide to not correctly update the party state.
• Graphics
Additional fixes for graphics and DirectX.

New Feature:

• Feedback Notifications
You’ll now periodically receive notifications asking you to rate certain experiences on Xbox One. These notifications, when acted upon, will launch a new lightweight app where you can supply a rating and optionally input text to further explain your score.

Too busy to give feedback when you get the notification? No problem! Just ignore the toast and you can access it under Notifications in the Guide when you’re ready. You’ll also find a new Setting for this feature under Preferences.
