Always good to hear, I'm loving these monthly updates for the Xbox. I'm not seeing any downside lol. I just wish they would bring back the ability to hear game chat through both your speakers and through your headset. But great job Microsoft, keep the updates coming

Yeah the speed of the interface definitely needs to be improved. Good news.

Bring on those updates. Now for external Hdd support for next month.

The update does absolutely nothing to fix game recordings. I am seeing recordings not recording despite my HDD being empty of all old recorded gameplay. I have seen corrupted recordings that skip during playback, and random recording times from 1 second, to one minute! I even had a recording say, -1 minute and 27 seconds! I am in the beta preview program, and I already have informed Microsoft like six times about this, I was told they are looking into it. Numerous others are reporting the same issues along with error codes.

Um that's why it's called beta... they should find a better way to screen testers.

First off high-speed, this recording issue has been going on for a while. As in last year. It is not a recent issue. Second, the last update is almost a four days OUT of beta that will explain your disagrees. Run along now.

Have you tried deleting and redownloading Upload Studio? I was having a problem where sound was muted in my recordings, but after I did that, it was fine. Maybe it will work for you.
SITH  +   256d ago
No, I have not. I will definitely do that. Thanks. But I solved the sound not recording issue which I had also. I did it by pushing and holding the power button on the xbox one, then unplugging the power cable for one minute. But I will definitely delete upload and reinstall it.

Microsoft is on it when it comes to updates

I haven't had the recording problem. I have had the issue with notifications lagging or taking forever. Like in game I'd say Record That and the notification wouldn't pop up till way later.......

Off topic but I have a question. I'll be getting my XB1 this weekend and Ik the controller has a micro USB port at the top. Can I just play wired instead of buying batteries ? And do the rumble triggers work for any game ? Because I want to try them on Wolfenstein The New Order. Thanks.

"Can I just play wired instead of buying batteries ?"

Yeah, you can. But longterm you should deffo get a play and charge kit ;)
n4rc  +   256d ago
Yup.. Plugging it in turns it into a wired controller..

And no.. Rumble triggers need to be implemented by devs on a game by game basis.. No idea if wolfinstein is using them
marlinfan10  +   256d ago
id recommend the play and charge kit, i get about 15-20 hrs of play time off a charge. but yes, you can just play wired the whole time if thats what you choose

May update also seems to have removed my console's capacity to read any discs. That or it's a hardware problem.

Returns are such a chore :|

Everything feels a bit snappier : ). Snapped apps definitely seem to load quicker, especially internet.

It is much, much faster now. Audio controls are as advertised. Thank you Microsoft.
