NEW FEATURES:

You asked—we listened! We’re excited to announce that we’ve added the ability to put your themes on a schedule. In addition to choosing either the light or dark theme, you can now schedule a time to automatically switch between them. Simply follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to Settings > Personalization > Theme & motion.
  2. Select Scheduled from the “System theme” dropdown.
  3. Select the times at which you want the light theme to start and end.

• Guide Enhancements

A new icon will appear in the Guide. The Guide Game Pass Discovery Tile (the “Surprise me with a random Game Pass Game tile”), now shows in Guide.


FIXES:

• Screenshots

Fixed an issue which sometimes caused screenshots to fail to display in Report a problem or on the console.

• Party Chat

Party chat is now fixed to not crash when in the Guide.


KNOWN ISSUES:

• My Games and Apps

When downloading and installing games the progress bar and the percentage complete are not in sync and show inaccurate data. The games and apps do install correctly.

We are aware of the Guide and Home crashing and determined the root cause. A fix is being worked on. Workaround: In the interim please HARD Reboot (Hold the power button for ten seconds)the console to fix this issue.
