If your console happens to be in the Insider Alpha enrolled group and you have installed the newest update, you may spot that your guide will now show an installation bar for any downloads in progress. You’ll also have some basic functions in this area like pausing and cancelling.

Which you know, it’s always good to have more functions and the ability to view this without having to go back and forth and scroll down to your queue can only be a speedy benefit and get you back to your gaming asap.

Further new features include:

New Features:

Installation Progress in Guide
In-progress installations are now visible from a tile at the bottom of the Guide. When selected, this tile opens a new interface showing items in the queue and their status, and allowing some basic functions like pausing or cancelling the installation.


Fixed an issue which caused some elements in Profile to appear misaligned.

Home and Dashboard
Resolved an issue which sometimes caused unexpected crashes.

Miscellaneous fixes and improvements.
