Xbox Insiders in Ring 3 and Beta are also getting an update today, here's what's new

While Xbox Alpha ring members are getting custom gamerpics and other features today, users in Ring 3 and the Beta ring are also getting some patch love.

This update contains fixes and other improvements, but it will also bring the entirety of Ring 3 into the fold. Previously, only a subset of Ring 3 was receiving builds. Here's what's changed.

DETAILS

OS version released: rs2_release_xbox_1703.170321-1800

Available: 6:00PM PDT 3/24 (1:00AM GMT 25/3)

FIXES:

Skate 3

  • Skate 3 should no longer crash to Home after attempting to join a Quick Match.

Sign-In

  • Fixed an issue which could sometimes prevent users from signing-in.

Miscellaneous

  • Miscellaneous fixes and improvements.

KNOWN ISSUES:

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.

As always, keep it locked to Windows Central for all the latest from the Xbox Insider Program.

  • Will they ever provide an opportunity for Insiders to get the Wireless Display app that weren't part of the program yet when it was being tested?
    Edit: Obviously, i know this says that the app crashes immediately so it'd be of no use right now, but I assume at some point it'll be fixed.
  • Who knows if it will be fixed. It feels like they are just letting it die. It never worked well anyways. Google Chromecast works SOO much better. MS needs to step it up for sure with that app!
  • The app its beta for ever, and i think that it will never gonna change.
  • Ring 3 JV squad, represent! lol
  • Have they finally put back the large active tile? Or is that just an old screenshot?
  • Old.
  • Shame.
    Thanks for clearing that up.
  • updates are good  
  • I have two Xbox Ones, how do I add a console to the preview? There is an option to remove a device but not add..
