Xbox Insiders on the Alpha ring to get a new build with fixes for reported issues

The Xbox team are releasing a new build to Xbox Insiders on the Preview Program. Those in the Alpha ring will receive this build 2AM GMT (2PM PST) that delivers fixes for a number of issues.

Here is the changelog:

• My Games and Apps

  • Fixed an error that resulted in content that was installing/downloading not resuming after a reboot.
  • Certain games when installing had been failing to run on first launch until a reboot – this is now fixed.

• Party Chat

Reliability fixes to improve the time it takes for users to join a Party Chat session who had been experiencing long join times.

• Pseudo Localization/Language Translation String Fixes

Users will no longer see incorrect language translations in the build. If you do encounter any incorrect strings please report a problem.

• Profile

Fixed an issue which caused the incorrect profile color to display after powering on the console.

There are also some known issues (and workarounds) to be weary of too:

• Games Installation

Games that are installed fail to launch. Workaround: If the games are installed to an external drive please copy the game to the internal drive or attempt to delete the title and redownload to fix the launch error.

• Display

We are investigating the inaccurate RGB colors that have been reported when displaying in 4K HDR mode when playing a UHD disc.

• Tournaments

• The left and right navigation for selecting date and time during Tournament creation is currently reversed when the console language is set to Arabic or Hebrew.

• Left and right navigation in Tournament twists is reversed when the console language is set to Arabic or Hebrew.

• Left and right navigation in the bracket view of Tournaments is reversed when the console language is set to Arabic or Hebrew

• Avatars on Home

Users wishing to represent themselves as an avatar can do so by changing their settings under My profile > Customize profile > Show my avatar.

Hopefully this build will deliver a smoother experience to those in the Alpha ring. Let us know in the comments below once you’ve had chance to give the build a run!
