New Features and Experiences

We have exciting news! Omega users can expect something new coming to their Xbox Update Preview.

Audio

We have added a new option which allows you to mute startup sounds. To use it, navigate to Settings > General > Volume & audio output > Additional options.

Controllers

A new version of the controller firmware is available to Omega users starting today! This firmware includes fixes to address an issue where putting your powered-off Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 controller onto its charging dock would erroneously wake the console.

Discord Voice – Krisp Noise Suppression (Xbox Series X|S consoles)

When connecting to Discord Voice on an Xbox Series X|S console, Krisp noise suppression will now be activated to produce clearer audio.

My Games & Apps

We have enabled a filter menu with a new look, which gives you more control over how you view your games and apps. You can now simultaneously apply multiple filters per category and clear all your filters with a single button press.

Settings – QoS Tagging

We have updated the settings page for QoS tagging to ensure users know what each setting does and when they can be useful. To learn more, navigate to Settings > General > Network settings > Advanced settings > QoS tagging settings.

Fixes Implemented

Thanks to the hard work of Xbox engineers, we are happy to announce the following fixes have been implemented for this build:

Audio

  • Fixes to address an issue where audio would stop working unexpectedly. If you continue to experience this issue, please file feedback with Report a Problem.

Controllers

  • Fixed an issue where controllers could become unresponsive in some games when using headphones with 4K, 120Hz, and VRR enabled.

System

  • Various updates to properly reflect local languages across the console.
    • Note: Users participating in Preview may see “odd” text across the console, for more information go here.

Known Issues

We understand some issues have been listed in previous Xbox Insider Release Notes. These items aren’t being ignored, but it will take Xbox engineers more time to find a solution.

Controllers

  • We’ve received some reports that users’ controllers are randomly losing sync or disconnecting from the console. If you encounter this behavior, please be sure to report this issue after reconnecting.

HDMI-CEC

  • We’ve received some reports that HDMI-CEC is not working correctly.
    • Note: Ensure that your TV supports HDMI-CEC and is also enabled before filing feedback.

Home

  • Some users have reported that the icon for a disc-based title is not appearing on the dashboard.

My Games & Apps

  • Titles in collection may incorrectly appear with a “trial” tag.

TV/Display

  • Some users have reported that the console is displaying at the incorrect resolution on boot.  We are aware and investigating.
    • Note: If you encounter this behavior, please ensure that you submit feedback via Report a Problem immediately. Please include the make/model of you TV/Display in the description.
    • Workaround: Restarting the console via the Power menu (Holding down the Xbox button displays the power menu) should resolve the behavior.  If not, ensure you are looking at the troubleshooting here, specifically the section about ensuring your TV firmware is up to date.

Make sure to use Report a problem to keep us informed of your issue. We may not be able to respond to everyone, but the data we’ll gather is crucial to finding a resolution.
