Xbox Extras bumped to version 2.0 fixes sign in issues

WP Central Xbox Extras bumped to version 2.0 fixes sign in issues

Microsoft recently updated Xbox Extras but unfortunately it created a severe issue where the user was unable to log into Xbox live.

Good news is here for those that like to play with their mini-me while on the move, the app has now been bumped to version 1.5 and we’re back on track.

In keeping with the new Xbox SmartGlass app that was recently released the Xbox Extras picks up a very green icon which looks nice. Other than that, it’s business as usual for the Xbox Extras app, you can edit your avatar, get things from the store and such.

We’re glad the app is back to working order on the eve of the launch of Windows Phone 8.

To grab the update just click on the marketplace link below and do let us know if there are any changes hidden away you notice.

Thanks, @JCinWinupd8, for the tip!

Still not working, get it sorted Microsoft. Can't open store on front page, rubbish!

mikeguinnes says:

Can't open the store on the front page either. But can if you go to edit style and select store from the subsections. Needs to be sorted.

Working great now (Sweden)

I haven't had any issues with the previous update. Not sure if I should update now or wait for the next. Sounds like this update is causing issues as well.
