November 5th: New Preview build available (1610.161103-1900)


• If your console is in Instant-On mode and you have been selected to receive the update, it will download and install the update and reboot to standby. 

• NOTE: Once the update is available to you, you can manually begin the update by launching the Guide and navigating to All Settings > System > Console info & updates. 

• If you have been selected to receive the update and your console hasn’t downloaded and installed the update by 2:00 PM PDT 11/6/2016, you will be prompted to do so at that time. (We are shortening the time on this build to get wider coverage quicker!)


OS version released: rs1_xbox_rel_1610.161103-1900

Available: 6:00PM PDT 11/5 (1:00AM GMT 6/11)



• Messaging

When a user attempts to send a message and cannot due to low reputation, that user will now see a dialog informing them of the reason they cannot send messages, and direct them to Xbox Support.

• Cortana

• Speech recognition for France, Italy, Germany, and Spain has been updated in this build to better recognize your voice commands. If you are located in one these locales, we encourage you to opt in to Cortana via the Cortana app in My games & apps. As you use Cortana we collect field data, allowing us to improve the Cortana experience for everyone.

• Groove Music should no longer crash when launched via Cortana. 

• Narrator

Resolved an issue which caused OneGuide to crash if launched while Narrator is active 

• Virtual Keyboard

Resolved an issue which could sometimes cause the virtual keyboard to stop recognizing input. 

• Settings

The Detailed Network Statistics page should no longer appear blank if Xbox Live is experiencing an outage at the same time.


can we turn off receiving invites from random people to join their clubs? im already sick of it, lol.

Please also note if you are still on 1608 build you aren't getting it yet. Also there is no timeline as to when you'll get it. 

Which may actually be a good thing if you'd get annoyed but spamming of club invites.
