Xbox Insider Art

Starting at 2:00 p.m. PST today, members of the Xbox One Preview Skip Ahead and Preview Alpha Rings will begin receiving the latest 1904 Xbox One system update (19h1_release_xbox_dev_1904.190118-1520). Read on for more about the fixes and known issues in the latest 1904 system update.   For the next few releases we will keep Alpha Skip Ahead and Alpha builds in sync to test core functionality.

 

New Features:

 

Mini Keyboard

  • We are flighting a new Mini Keyboard and would love your feedback.  If you prefer or require the bigger keyboard for accessibility, it is still available in Settings -> Ease of Access -> Magnifier -> Larger Keyboard. This mini keyboard floats over the UI, so will position itself smartly around textboxes. If you see any positioning or general issues, please file bugs with as much detail as possible (app you were using, screenshot etc.) as we deliberately have minimal logging around text entry for privacy reasons.  Keep an eye out for a quest and survey!

Fixes:

 

Messaging

  • Framework enhancements to the messaging system to support future feature work.

 System – Home

  • Optimization fixes to the attract mode feature.
  • Localization fixes.

Known Issues:

 

Profile Color

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

Messaging

  • We are aware that when accessing messages in the guide the tab UI is not correct.

My Games and Apps:

  • We are tracking an issue with Borderlands 2 DLC not being recognized as owned with valid entitlement

Skype

  • We are aware of an issue with skype that when a user clicks on a conversation and/or pressing X to start a video call seem to freeze and eventually crash skype
