Another update is heading out for Xbox Insiders in the Alpha ring

The update doesn't contain a great deal, but it does fix an issue with screen dimming during video playback, while acknowledging bugs with the store and the new party chat overlay.

Here's what's new.


OS version released: rs2_release_xbox_1705.170413-1824

Available: 6:00PM PDT 4/19 (1:00AM GMT 20/4)

NEW FEATURES: Welcome to 1705 on Xbox One! This month we're rolling out a new party overlay, more fan-requested improvements, and later this month…Killer Instinct and World of Tanks tournaments powered by Arena on Xbox Live!

NOTE: Not all planned features for this update are available at this time.


Screen Dimming

  • Fixed an issue which sometimes caused the screen to dim during video playback.



  • You will be unable to access the Store when the console is set to one of the following language and region configurations: English (Greece), English (Czech Republic), English (Hungary), English (Slovakia). This issue will be resolved in an upcoming update. Workaround: Set the console to a language and region configuration which is not one of the four mentioned above.


  • Overlay: Small black squares may be displayed on screen after using the party overlay. Workaround: Disable the party overlay when you are not in a party.

Stay tuned for all the latest from the Xbox Insider Program.
