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.



  • Fixed an issue in which some users would receive and error when deleting Local Groups.


  • Fixed an issue in which Pinned content blocks overlapped with the Most Recent App on dashboard on console boot.


  • Fixed an issue in which some users with Auto sign-in would still see the sign in screen when booting to live tv

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.
