NEW FEATURES: 

Download 4K Game Content

We’ve added a great new setting that’ll help you get ready for Xbox One X by downloading available 4K game content ahead of time. Download 4K content on your external games & apps storage device and plug the device into your Xbox One X to play right away! If you don’t have an external storage device, you can also download 4K game content directly to your current console, then transfer your games & apps to your Xbox One X using network transfer to get started faster.

NOTE: This feature was enabled via live setting and is currently available without downloading this system update.

 

Backup Settings

Streamline setup on a new console by backing up your account and key system settings to an external games & apps storage device. Plug the storage device in your new console before setting up to transfer your backed up settings. To access these features, open the Guide and navigate to System > Settings > System > Backup & transfer.

NOTE: This feature was enabled via live setting and is currently available without downloading this system update.

so happy you guys decided to fix ALL of the party bugs with ONE patch. props.

• You may notice stuttering or decreased performance in games and apps while the guide is open or the console is downloading content in the background.

This bug is terrible, crashing my console all the time. I can't open notifications while playing Destiny 2 or another heavy game.

Yes i agree everything is slow my console didn't update overnight but wouldn't turn on this morning so i knew there had been a new alpha released. I updated manually with no problems but the system can't seem to do anything without stuttering. I use headphones alot and the audio is appalling rebooted without any success. The audio through the tv speakers seems to be ok with little or no stuttering


I like the new backup settings option that will help alot once my pre ordered xbox scorpio arrives although probably won't attempt that for the moment if its going to cause further problems using the xbox one. 

Party chat issues are still there. Although it doesn't disconnect anymore. There is still very heavy stuttering when people talk. Can only hear like every 5th word. Also Destiny 2 Is still very laggy when trying to use party chat.


At last that's how it still is for me..

Report was sent in anyways.

4K Download feature is activated but no game currently listed on the webpage as XboxOneX enhanced is updated, also in MyGames&Apps, when filtering games enhanced for XboxOneX, none are listed ... is this already activated or not yet and the patches and games will be listed soon ?

if I recall the one S will not show the 4k content. I presume it will download and sit there ready for the One X.

mines all backed up and the external drives will just (hopefully) have everything ready for the X. Doing so hasn't caused any issues.

What is the point in having 4k downsampling on the Xbox One S if it hasn't got any 4k content to downsample?

it's so you're ready for the one x, straight plug and play, no waiting for content to update. 

Clearly says that in the update notes

Ah so pretty much useless for anyone using the S then if it's not going to use any of these native assets? Well with this new dash my Xbox One S doesn't even upscale to my 4k tv anymore, it seems to be the same resolution dash whatever resolution I set it at. They keep removing things on each dash update it seems.
