Microsoft rolled out a new Xbox One system update preview yesterday, and members of the private tester forum have posted the patch notes for all to see.


It follows this previous batch of Xbox One system update preview features, which will make up Microsoft’s May update, along with this week’s new additions.

DualShockers was tipped off about the new preview, along with the following patch notes:

We have started to deploy the latest update for you to preview: 1405 (xb_rel_1405.140506-2200). Consoles that are in standby mode will be able to install the update starting at 6:00PM PDT on May 9th. If you want it right away, feel free to use the new System Updates button after 6PM! Simply check Settings>System, and if you see System update, click it to start your update. Consoles that have not received the update in standby mode or via the manual update button by 1:00AM PDT on May 11th will be prompted to install the update when they connect to Xbox Live.

Let’s take a look at some of the changes and fixes you’ll be seeing in this preview!

Improvements and Fixes

  • Updates to help address issues where Game DVR clips may be recorded without audio.
  • Underlying OS changes required to enable planned 1405 features.
  • Get System Update button change. This update changes how the system update button works under Settings->System. Now the button will say “No update available” and be greyed out when there is no update, and it will say “Update console” and be active when an update is available.
  • Update to address issues some issues users noticed where Party Chat would be quiet unless the Party App is snapped.

We’ll have more on the Xbox One May updates as they drop.
