This new update fixes bugs.


If you're in the Xbox One preview program, there is a new update waiting for you. Microsoft has announced that preview alpha version 1705.170505-1900 is out now for testers.

This update fixes a number of problems, including one where the console would sort titles alphabetically when you selected "Sort by last used" or "Sort by last update." Additionally, the update fixes a problem where, sometimes, uninstalled games would show up as installed.

One big new feature coming to Xbox One soon is the Game Pass. This Netflix-style offering costs $10/month and provides access to a catalog of 100 games (Xbox One and backwards-compatible Xbox 360 titles) for Xbox One.
