    The Xbox 2017 fall update is here, bringing tons of new features.

    Now that it's out to the public, what do you think? Improvement or downgrade?

    I'll forward the feedback to Microsoft too. :))
    Absolutely awful, bad enough for me to Google it, read a post online and then join this forum just to moan about it.

    What were they thinking?

    Everything takes longer to do. Recording clips of a different length now takes longer and more clicks, which is something nobody wants to do in the middle of a game.

    If you're signed in to multiple profiles you have to swap to the profile that's in the party to see who's in the party which takes longer.

    Randomly parties can't hear if you're signed in to other profiles and sometimes they can.

    When I first got the update it swapped my right and left headphones so enemies on my left would appear on my right. This seems to have sorted itself out.

    My turtle beach volume controller now works as 2 volume controls rather than a volume control and a chat/game mixer.

    Some games such as Rocket league are now unplayable. Since the update many times I have tried to play rocket league but it won't recognise my controller in the game. I can bring up the dashboard and play other stuff fine but that game is unresponsive. Either that or it let's me play a game and then after 5 seconds after each kick off, I can't turn left or right.

    As I'm typing this my Spotify just crashed.

    I can see absolutely no positives to this update.

    To me it seems like they're trying to break everyone's machines to force them to lay out loads of money on the new Xbox.

    Locks up everything. The Xbox One is practically unusable now.

    Good responses all, will forward this to MS. I kinda feel like the fluent design implementation needs work, but that's true across all of Windows 10. Not a fan of it atm.

    I'm actually surprised how good looking the light theme looks for the Xbone dashboard.

    I don't use it though because I play in a dark room so it may hurt my eyes.

    Hello, this new update caused my Xbox to show a dim setting on my dashboard and even when I'm playing a game. I've don't the 10 second reboot, I've changed the wiring, I even raised the brightness of my TV but it doesn't look right. Any idea on why this is happening? How can I fix this?

    It's dim even on the dashboard? What is your TV model?
