Posted on February 13, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Games, Xbox One with 4 Comments

Microsoft is rolling out a new update for the Xbox One system. The company started rolling out a new version 1902 update to Xbox One systems yesterday. And although there’s a major bump in the version number, there aren’t any notable feature changes with the latest update.

In fact, the Xbox One 1902 update only focuses on bug fixes and minor improvements. The update, build 10.0.17763.4085, comes with a bunch of fixes for the Xbox One system and some game-related fixes (via OnMSFT).

Some of the notable fixes include reliability improvements to Cortana, improved 4K visual performance in games, improved installation experience for FastStart games, and improved performance of the My Games & Apps screen.

You can find the full changelog below and check for updates on your Xbox to install the latest update:

    My guess is they are shifting resources over to Scarlet consoles. This is definitely a maintenance mode release. Although I would suspect that more new capabilities will be added to the Xbox One consoles prior and after the Scarlet releases, it just won't be as many new feature/enhancement releases.

    Nice to see they fixed the issue with the Avatar Editor and Rewards not launching, that was one that affected me when I bought a One X during Black Friday sales week. I hope they fixed the issue with the controller not turning the console on as well, the Xbox Reddit was filled with people experiencing that issue throughout the Holiday season as they setup their new consoles. I worked around the first issue (Avatar Editor) by using the Windows 10 app which ran fine, and resolved the controller problem with a full power cycle of the console (unplug/plug back in.)

      I love the new Xbox avatars, but I've been rather disappointed by how little they've been used in the system thus far. I can make a really slick avatar with gestures and props...then what? I can see my friends avatars. OK, so?

      Given the richness of the avatar platform, I'd love to see a real interactive social experience where you could walk around in a virtual space and have conversations, etc., with each other's avatars. Remember Xbox 360 arcade games like Motocross Madness, where you could even use your avatar as the main character in the game? How cool would that be?!
