    I am curious how one who is in the preview update can refer a friend. I’m in the Beta but none of my friends are and would like to invite a few of them.

      It’s on the forums – they have a place where you can create a thread and give gamertags you’d like to have invites sent to.

    off topic…i got the update and i wanted to let microsoft know about my thoughts. I went to the xbox private forum..but i couldnt find out where to leave the message so i will just say i gotta say here. I like the update.. i think its the right path. Only minor problem to me is on the friendlist. I think the Green light that shows your friends online should be bigger…it should stand out. To me its to small….its hard to tell from glance of who is online. Also, the party system is still a bit hard to get to. I think the party option should be where the friendslist is at to. Becuase if you think about it… the 360 had like a couple of ways to party…it will only be right if you put the party button there also.

    Notifications for your favorite friends should be added as well.

    the next project should be wallpaper and themes for the dashboard. maybe let us use our real pictures and bring back the avatar store and avatar. These thing made the xbox live……. allowing use to be animated was so kool.

    So how do we get the BETA update? Do I need to put it on stand-by or by turning my X One on?

  • Scott Daylor

    DO NOT join the beta! I just did it and now it wont let me sign back into my system.

  • therevolvingmonk

  • Derek

    When I joined the beta, I can’t even play game with my friend and it is boring to play alone. I decide to unregistered the beta to see if I’m able to join my friend party and the new party already struck into my system. I can’t play with my friend :-( sucks.
