Several app fixes rolling out with the latest Xbox Insider Alpha ring build

A new build is on its way to select Xbox One consoles – affecting users enrolled in the Alpha ring of the Xbox Insider Program. Although no new features have surfaced as a part of today's update, fixes are being deployed for numerous applications and system-level features.

Like usual, today's update will begin rolling out to applicable Xbox Insiders from 6PM PST/9PM EST over Xbox Live. 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 been changed in today's update (via Microsoft):


OS version released: rs2_release_xbox_1703.170210-1900

Available: 6:00PM PST 2/13 (2:00AM GMT 14/2)



  • Fixed an issue which caused the IGN app to crash to Home upon launch.


  • Resolved an issue which caused audio to drop out for a few seconds when viewing a Beam stream.

Ubisoft Club

  • Fixed an issue which caused the screen to automatically start scrolling down, preventing the user from scrolling back up.

Backward Compatibility

  • Resolved an issue which caused newly purchased or disc downloaded backward compatible games to fail to launch.


  • With profile sign-in settings set to "Lock it down", users should now be able to sign-in again after playing a game, then signing out.



  • Cortana may be too responsive to phrases which sound like "Hey Cortana". The development team is continuing to tune and improve this.
  • Cortana may take a long time to respond when activated while playing certain games.
  • Scheduled Cortana reminders will not provide a notification if the user who created the reminder is signed in, but not the current active user.

EA Access

  • The EA Access app may indicate you are not an EA Access subscriber when you are. This does not affect your ability to download or play games from the Vault, or receive discounts on EA titles.

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. 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.
