Learn How to Enroll Your Xbox Series X|S in the Xbox Update Preview

As many Xbox Update Preview participants may have already purchased or else plan to purchase an Xbox Series X|S in the near future, we’d like to remind you how to enroll your new console in the Xbox Update Preview. We’re also happy to invite new Xbox Series X|S owners to participate in the Xbox Update Preview by following the steps below.

Here’s how to make sure your console is properly set up for Preview updates:

  1. Sign in on your new console.
  2. Navigate to My Games & Apps >Apps select the Search Icon and search for the Xbox Insider Hub app and select Install.
    • If this is your first time participating in the Xbox Update Preview, search for and install the Xbox Insider Hub app from the Store and accept the Xbox Insider Program Terms of Use.
  3. Launch the Xbox Insider Hub and navigate to Insider content > System > Xbox Update Preview.
  4. Select Join or Manage.
  5. Choose the desired Preview group (i.e. Xbox Update Preview Omega) from the list and select Done.

Xbox Insider System Update Selection

NOTE: You can enroll all your consoles in any Preview group you’re eligible for (i.e. a Preview Alpha participant can enroll all their consoles in Preview Alpha).

NOTE: You can unenroll a console you no longer own/can’t access in the Xbox Insider Hub by navigating to Settings > Manage devices.

Your console registration will be processed shortly after completing the steps above, and your console will prompt you to download a new system update (if a new system update is available to that Preview group) at that time.

Enjoy your new console, and we’ll see you on Xbox Live!
