Microsoft Is Thanking Players For Reporting Xbox One Issues

Microsoft is sending out emails of appreciation to three specific Xbox One owners to thank them for influencing the latest Xbox One update. The three players, which the emails name their gamertags, reported to Microsoft that “when a disc was ejected, the drive tried to pull it back in,” “the new SmartGlass update for Android had text too light to see,” and “the 50Hz setting wasn’t saved after an update.”

Through these reports and findings, Microsoft was able to fix issues within the newest update before it launched and told the recipients they are automatically signed up for the next update preview.

The latest April system update improved Blu-ray video and audio quality, and added the silent reboot function that allows users to have their system update and reboot by itself when it’s on Instant On Mode. The system’s controller and headset adapter also received updates that removed audio static between them.
Microsoft announced yesterday that it has shipped 5 million Xbox One consoles since the system’s release in November. This feat has the console performing about 60% better than its predecessor, Xbox 360, in the same allotted time period. But the console is still being outperformed by PlayStation 4, which has sold 7 million consoles to consumers.
