New Alpha and Alpha Skip Ahead 1904 build coming today 2/20/19

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_1904.190218-1920). 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!

Media Remote Programmable Buttons

We are flighting a new feature that enables you to reprogram buttons on your Media Remote.  Choose your favorite app to launch when you press the OneGuide button on a media remote. You are able to access this via Settings>Kinect & devices>Media remote.

Console Restart

We are flighting a new feature that allows users to Restart the console from the Power Menu.  This is feature simply accessed by holding down the Xbox Jewell and selecting Restart Console.

Known Issues:


Disney Adventures

  • We are tracking an issue that this title is crashing on launch.


  • We are aware that some users with Xbox One X consoles are seeing graphical corruption on text fields when exiting a game and navigating back to home.


  • We are tracking an issue with the Netflix app.  When you are playing 4k content and then pause and place the console in connected standby upon relaunching the Netflix app when starting you console back up the Netflix app crashes.  Workaround:  Close and relaunch the Netflix app.  Some users have also found if they change the console display resolution from 4K to 1080p then launch the app.  After the app launch change the console display back to 4k.

Profile Color

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