It was on before so I don't know why it disappeared. I'm in the preview and I have that but I don't think they updated the other stuff mentioned in Major Nelson's blog - is it coming in parts?

We’re rolling out a new set of features to Xbox One Preview program members starting today and Mike Ybarra from the Xbox & Windows Gaming Platform team discusses what’s included in this system update. Read his summary below:


"In November, we transformed Xbox One to make it the fastest and most social Xbox experience ever. We continue to evolve the Xbox experience based on your feedback and I’m excited to announce the first of a set of new features releasing in 2016. This month, we’re focused on continuing to improve social features to help you stay connected to the Xbox Live community across console and PC, while bringing these experiences closer together.

Brand new experiences and updates which will start to rollout to Xbox One Preview:

See who’s in a Party: Xbox One Preview participants will be able to see who’s in a Party before joining. When you view the profile of a friend who is in a Party in the guide, you will now be able to see who else they’re playing with. Click the ‘Chatbutton which appears immediately below the user to jump in and see who is in the Party.

Gamerscore Leaderboard: In Xbox One Preview, go to the Achievements section of your profile by clicking ‘View Achievements’ through the sign-in tab of the guide to check out the revived Gamerscore Leaderboard. Through the Gamerscore Leaderboard, see where you stand relative to your friends by comparing total gamerscore, as well as biggest gains over a rolling 30-day period. Click on the Gamerscore Leaderboard to see the full list of all your friends.

Re-arrange Pins on Home and access them offline: Many of you have told us that you want Pins on your Xbox One Home to be easier to organize. In Preview, you will now be able to rearrange individual pins. We also made Pins accessible for launching when you are offline.

Updating Activity Feed in Xbox One: Your activity feed in Xbox One Preview will inform you when there are new items in your feed. Clicking the link will take you to the top of your feed where you’ll see a run-down of the newest posts, so that you always have the freshest content at your fingertips.

Joinable Twitch Broadcasts: You want it to be easier to watch your friend’s game broadcasts. In Preview, Game Hubs as well as the game tile will allow you to easily launch Twitch.tv broadcasts if friends are broadcasting.

Improvements to Suggested Friends: Looking for people who you might know on Xbox or top content creators to follow? Check out the new Friend Suggestions area in Community and the Friends list in the Guide on Xbox One. Friend Suggestions include the gamertag, real name (if shared), gamerpic or Xbox Avatar image, and the reason the suggestion was made to you. Click through from the suggestion to view the member’s full profile and choose to grow your friends list.

Hide games from ‘ready-to-install’ list: Fans asked that we re-enable the ability to hide content like betas, trials, games, and apps that they no longer want to install. Xbox One Preview members will be able to start using this feature again.
Updates coming to Xbox One Preview and the Xbox Beta app that make gaming on any platform better:

Avatar Store: Equip your avatar with the latest avatar items in the newly-integrated ‘Avatar Store’. On the console, the Store is built right into the Xbox Avatars app and on Windows 10 PCs and phones, access the Store through the Xbox Avatars app. Get access to the entire catalog of new and oldie-but-goodie items, including free items. As you’re perusing catalogs, enjoy the ability to preview the items on your avatar real-time before you buy.

Xbox News: Xbox News is a one-stop source for all the latest information about new hardware, console updates, game releases, tournaments like the Halo World Championship, breaking entertainment content, and more. This month, both Xbox Beta app and Xbox One Preview audiences will see Xbox News posts in their activity feed to make it easier to stay up to date on all things Xbox.

Improvements to Trending: Across Xbox One Preview and Xbox Beta app experiences this month for console and Windows 10 PCs and phones, you’ll notice a new access point for Trending items to the right of the Community tab on your console and in the left menu area of the Xbox app. This gets you to a dedicated Trending landing page with the most popular topics across Xbox Live surfaced at the top followed by an inspirational assortment of top videos, screenshots, achievements, and more that members across the community have created or unlocked. Consider friending or following publishers of content that you like.

Suggested friends: In both the Xbox One Preview and Xbox Beta app, we’re making it easier to get details on your suggested friends. Starting this month, if you click ‘see all’ or double tap on the shortlist of friend suggestions in any scenario, you will be pointed to a full-screen view of all suggested friends.

Across both Xbox One Preview and the Xbox Beta app, January brings the injection of Trending topics and friend suggestions into your activity feed.

Compact mode for Xbox App: With this update to the Xbox Beta app, we’ve moved additional functions to compact mode which will enable you to quickly switch between your friends’ view, your party, messages and activity alerts. A quick click allows you to keep an eye on what your friends are up to, while multi-tasking on your Windows PC!

As we commence our first update of 2016, I want to thank you for your continued support. The Xbox community cast over 6.5 million votes on Xbox Feedback in 2015, contributing to our system updates. 2016 is shaping up to be an even bigger year for gamers and we’re looking forward to bringing you exciting updates to continually improve your gaming experience.

Never should have got rid of it.

Now need to be able to separate stuff in A-Z and make the tiles smaller so you can have more on screen.

What do you mean? Like you can delete games on your account with 0 gamerscore again? That's good. I still say you should be able to delete a game even if you got a few achievements. If you have no interest in playing that game again, all it does is mess with your completion percentage.

No, you can remove any "uninstalled" games from the Games list. Since the Fall update/Win10/Dashboard change, that feature was removed (so if you scroll all the way right, you see all of the uninstalled/pending install stuff). Now it's back for preview members, so you can selectively hide stuff that is no longer relevant to you (i.e. demos/betas that you would never install again, etc.)

I really, really wish MS would ditch the crappy avatars. I'm not against avatars, but It needs to be far more robust than some Mii rip-off. We should be able to have a variety of options of artistic styles, to monsters, people, animals, etc. Otherwise don't bother, imo.

Avatars are pretty much invisible on the Xbox One. I would guess that at least 80% of people who own the Xbox One wouldn't even know where to go to see theirs.

I was becoming increasingly more nervous as I was reading that post but let out a huge sigh of relief when I saw that.
