Microsoft is forging ahead with the console launch despite Tuesday’s government announcement that the US software giant is the subject of an anti-monopoly investigation. According to Windows Central, the first version continually crashed and the version number was older than the stable old Xbox app. However, when Microsoft released an updated version of the first one, it seemed to correct its crashing issue.
The second added feature now allows users to search game demo titles.
Xbox users requested these two features, and Microsoft listened and delivered results. Everyone can express his or her ideas or vote up existing and interesting suggestions on the Xbox Feedback site.
The beta app can be understood as one working in a similar fashion as the Xbox One Preview Program which lets end-users become testers of new features prior to their larger roll-out by providing feedback for an improved end product. For consoles like the Xbox One, games are currency and Microsoft has enough Xbox One games to last them through the winter. One of the things that might surprise some people is that this display really doesn’t have anything in common with the Windows 10 display, other than a flat tile look that was already present in the previous Xbox One dashboard.
All in all, it appears the Xbox One Experience is going to be as big a change as advertised.
The firmware update for the Xbox 360 also made redeeming Xbox Live Marketplace codes easier.
