Xbox One May Preview is Live, Includes TV Channel Scanning & Voice Messages

by AOTF Staff

Xbox One has been trying to get voice messages right for a few months now. This time they have tried to perfec the art leaving voice messages, while in a party.

The recent Xbox One May preview update is live and includes a few fixes including TV channel scanning for United States and Canada, as well as voice messaging recording while in a party as well as a few fixes and mentions of known issues. Check out the update notice below.


  • Voice Messages while in a Party. With this update, you can now leave voice messages while in a Party. Previously, you had to leave a Party to leave a voice message.


  • US/CA USB TV Tuner Channel Scanning. We received reports that the US/CA Digital TV Tuner would not correctly scan for channels. This has been resolved in this update.


  • Party app Voice Commands (initial screen only). When launching the Party app, voice commands will not function on the Party app’s first menu screen (ie. saying “Xbox Select”, followed by “Start a party” or “Learn more”).

Normal Xbox One users whom are not in the preview program will be seeing these changes make their way to the platform early May. Until then, if you have it, get on the preview for the upcoming Xbox One May preview and try out the new features.
