Important Build Notes

 

 Avatars

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.

Fixes:

 

Groups

  • Fixed an issue in which some users have been seeing empty Context Menu when attempting to add pins.

Networking

  • Stability fixes to the wireless drivers to improve the stability of Wi-Fi.

 Notifications

  • We have fixed the issue that users have been seeing with Toast notifications not displaying correctly in the Guide.

 

Known Issues:

 

Avatars

  • 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

  • Microsoft Edge crashes for some users at random times.
  • 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

Oneguide

  • Sometimes users may encounter stuttering when launching straight into Oneguide after the console is turned on from Instant on. Please file feedback when you see this.

Profile Color

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