A hefty Xbox One update is rolling out to more gamers as the build becomes more stable.
Brad Rossetti of the Xbox team sent out a short tweet this morning letting preview members know they might soon be added to the latest update preview.
We are sending out new system messages to invite the next round of users to opt into the new experience via the dashboard later today!

The preview, which debuted for a select number of gamers a few weeks back, adds several new features and tweaks to the Xbox One user interface. First and foremost, the long awaited Cortana has at last debut. While it’s a little buggy in its current state, many will be happy to hear you can interact and ask Cortana questions whether you’re using a headset or Kinect.
Along with the digital assistant, the Xbox Marketplace has also been revamped to be slightly more efficient. The “My Games & Apps” folder has been moved from the bottom to the top of the Home screen. While its a minute improvement, it does make it slightly faster to browse your games. “My Games & Apps” has also gotten a face lift to make sorting and finding your things much faster.
Additionally, a new pre-order system has been put in place. Instead of charging gamers the second they pre-order titles, Xbox will instead charge accounts 14 days or less before the pre-ordered game launches.
There are plenty of other things in the latest preview build. For the full run-down, be sure to check out Xbox Live’s Major Nelson blog.
