A minor update is heading out for Xbox Insiders on the Alpha ring

The update contains "miscellaneous fixes and improvements," but sometimes, that's secret code for "behind the scenes improvements we will activate later." Microsoft recently unveiled custom gamerpics and other features are on the way for Xbox One, so it's fair to speculate that some aspects of this update might contain goodies for future functionality.

Here are the details.


OS version released: rs2_release_xbox_1703.170319-1800

Miscellaneous fixes and improvements.


  • Skate 3

Skate 3 may crash to Home after attempting to join a Quick Match.

  • Settings - Display & sound

The Audio output page is under construction and some of the new settings are not yet functional. New support is planned for Dolby Atmos for home theater, Dolby Atmos for headphones, and more in upcoming builds. An announcement will be made when these new features are ready to try out; enabling these settings now will have no effect.

  • Wireless Display

The Wireless Display app fails to launch and immediately crashes to Home.
