  3. Look for ‘Microsoft Flight Simulator Beta’ and select ‘Join’ or ‘Manage’.
  4. From the list of Groups, select ‘Microsoft Flight Simulator – Sim Update 10’ and click Save.
    • Note: Depending on the platform, you may automatically join the correct group.
  1. Wait for the registration to complete, then restart your Xbox console or PC—this prompts the Store to refresh and get the update.
  2. After restarting, launch Microsoft Flight Simulator and you’ll be prompted to update.
  3. If you don’t wish to restart immediately after joining, you can wait a few hours for the Store refresh and get the update, then launch the game.

If you would like to leave the pre-release test before it ends and re-install the live build, follow these instructions:  

  1. Open the ‘Xbox Insider Hub’ app.
  2. Navigate to ‘Previews’ > ‘Microsoft Flight Simulator Beta’ .
  3. Select ‘Manage’.
  4. On the left side, select ‘Leave preview’.
  5. Wait for the unenrollment to complete, restart your Xbox or PC, then launch the game.
