New Xbox Insider update brings further fixes to Beta ring and Ring 3
A new Xbox One update is just around the corner for users enrolled in the Beta ring and Ring 3 of the Xbox Insider Program. With a public release seemingly on the horizon, today's build introduces various tweaks to existing features.
This build will begin rolling out to both rings at 6 PM PT/9 PM ET, like previous Xbox Insider updates. For those who use the Xbox One's Instant On mode, the update will begin automatically downloading to your console. If you choose to manually install the build, navigate to All Settings > System > Console Info & Updates and check for an update.
Here's a closer look at what's changed in today's release, following a changelog (opens in new tab) from Microsoft.
OS version released: rs2_release_xbox_1703.170323-1228
Available: 6:00PM PDT 3/25 (1:00AM GMT 26/3)
- Miscellaneous fixes and improvements.
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.
- The Wireless Display app fails to launch and immediately crashes to Home.

This update rolled to users previously excluded from the limited initial Ring 3 subset; turned my console on this morning to be greeted by the Xbox button rebinding notification... And yes, it is MUCH more responsive than the current anniversary update the public/Ring 4 are using. This update will be well received next month.
Yup I finally got it. I'll be sure to leave tons of feedback. Though it doesn't really make sense to me because if most bugs are found in rings 1 & 2 how are ring 3 and 4 users supposed to level up. Idk.

How do I find the wireless display app? Know a link was posted to insiders, but it's not in my news, announcements or quests. I didn't get it at the time - is it now too late?
On this build it just crashes when you try to open it. It hasn't worked for a long time in these preview builds.
I'm in Ring 3 and still have gotten nothing :'-(
Is ring 4 ever going to get a update?
The OS is way faster than before.
Nothing for months and then 2 updates in as many days. I don't know if I can handle this, man! =P
Is there a complete feature list of what the creators update (is that the name for it on xbox?) brings to the console? Will you publish an article with that feature list?
