Xbox One System Update available to Preview Program members; Details here

Snap has been fixed!

If you are a member of Microsoft's Preview Program for the Xbox One, there's a new system update for you to try out! The update won't bring major changes, but it does address some annoying issues.

First and foremost, the Snap feature should be fixed with this update. Previously, the Snap feature could cause some stuttering when playing a game with a snapped app. In addition to that, voice message notifications will show up and description tiles for recently used games/apps will appear solid instead of transparent.
