Learn more about the new features in development for 1810 here, and read on for a list of fixes and known issues in this 1810 system update.

Important Build Notes



We’ve received feedback that the integration of Avatars on console has been a bit confusing due to the use of phrases like “Avatars on Home” and “Avatars on Dashboard,” so we wanted to clear up a few things. Currently, Avatars are visible to Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Skip Ahead and Alpha Rings in the following places: the Avatar Editor, activity feed, leaderboards, and the Profile.



  • Resolved the error message that Something Went Wrong Try Again Later when recording Game Clips.


  • Fixed an issue in which some users would encounter the game not being added when adding a game to a group while installing the game.

 My Games and Apps

  • Users should no longer experience Various Games and Apps failing to launch with no error code which required a title uninstall and reinstall.  This fix will resolve the issue when you launch the title.
  • Users should no longer experience an issue with the Store app erroring out with the (0x80070bfa) error when browsing/launching the Store.


  • Fixes to resolve the issue with Wireless and Wired networks failing to be detected when the console wakes from Instant on/connected standby.


  • Users can now save profiles in the Xbox Accessories app.
  • The settings for Blu-ray player audio passthrough is no longer broken when Dolby Atmos bitstream out is enabled.

 Virtual Keyboard

  • The Virtual Keyboard will no longer auto close before the user can enter in their password when adding new accounts.
  • We have resolved the issue where users experienced various keys & controller shortcuts for the virtual keyboard are not being recognized. Certain keys (spacebar, @ symbol, – symbol) were not registering when being pressed on the keyboard (both the virtual keyboard and via a USB keyboard)

Known Issues


  • It can take up to 10 seconds to view an Avatar on the profile screen the first time after your console has flashed.

Microsoft Edge

  • The cursor may disappear when exiting and re-entering the app
  • Workaround: Press Y when re-entering the app to make the cursor re-appear

Profile Color

  • Sometimes users may encounter an incorrect Profile color when powering on the console.
