I am currently experiencing not being able to either update apps or to download them is there a bug in either this update or the last one that would be the cause of said issue ?

Sorry for the strange post, but I just wanted to offer that I'm taking my XB1S to a hotel this Thursday and Friday night, so I'll be able to test Captive Portal if it is live by then.  😁

Thanks for all of your hard work, Preview Team!

Since the update Im getting a weird graphical issue on the dashboard. There is in the top left corner a black square that appears. I've done a hard reset, changed HDMI cable and it still comes back. Not appearing on my 360, Apple TV nor Sat TV. I was playing Forza Horizon 3 when it popped up and wouldn't go away until I hard reset but it appears after a few minutes.
