Microsoft Sends Out Xbox One Invites For Windows 10 Anniversary Update Preview
In Microsoft's ongoing quest to unify devices from different categories to a single platform, it's working on an update to the Xbox One that will prepare it for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. The Xbox One update isn't live yet, but Microsoft is currently sending out invites to select Preview members to sign up for the "Latest Xbox One Experience," as it's being called.
The update will eventually roll out to all Preview members, but at this early stage, Microsoft is inviting users who earned the most points by submitting feedback in the previous wave, according to a Twitter post by Xbox Preview Program Manager Emily Hanson.
Meanwhile, Preview members, check your Live messages! Those w/the most points after the last wave have a fun message waiting for them. ;)— Emily Hanson (@EmInterrupted) June 2, 2016
The update is also likely to introduce Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps and games, background audio playback, and (fingers crossed) mouse and keyboard support. These would be the big additions—you can also expect the usual round of performance and usability tweaks.
