Here are the known issues in the Xbox One Creators Update preview release

Just yesterday, it was announced that some Xbox Insider Program members would begin receiving the first wave of redesigns and new features which would eventually be seen for the rest of the public in the Xbox One Creators Update. While the new build delivered a redesign of the home hub, increased system performance, improvements for Cortana and much more, Microsoft has finally officially pushed out a changelog for the known issues with the update. As is usual, we’ve included the details for you below!

OS version released: rs2_xbox_rel_1703.170118-1900:

Known Issues:

  • Controllers & accessories: When a steering wheel accessory is connected, the console interface may freeze and become unresponsive. Workaround: Disconnect the steering wheel accessory, and hard reset the console (hold down the button on the front of the console for five seconds until it fully powers down, then power it back on).
  • Sign-in: With profile sign-in settings set to “Lock it down”, you may be unable to sign-in again playing a game, then signing out. Workaround: Hard reset the console (hold down the button on the front of the console for five seconds until it fully powers down, then power it back on). 
  • VUDU: VUDU may fail to launch or videos may fail to play due to a connecting to network error.
  • Apps: You may be unable to fully navigate in certain apps due to the lack of a cursor. The affected apps include, but are not limited to: Baconit, British Radio, American Radio, UrzaGatherer, and MSN Weather.
  • EA Access: If you have an EA Access subscription and own a large number of digital games or apps, you may have issues installing or playing EA Access content.
  • Jump Guide: Microsoft Edge webpages which are pinned in the Jump Guide fail to launch the webpage.
  • Screen Dimming: The screen may dim after a short amount of time while viewing videos in certain apps (Hulu Plus).
  • Settings: Ease of Access When enabling the Mono output setting in Ease of Access – Audio, Settings becomes unresponsive, crashes, and fails to launch on subsequent attempts. Workaround: To launch Settings, perform a hard reset (hold down the button on the front of the console for five seconds until it fully powers down, then power it back on).
  • Settings: Display & sound The Audio output page is under construction and some of the new settings are not yet functional.

An announcement will be made when these new features are ready to try out; enabling these settings now will have no effect.
