New Preview Alpha 1804 System Update – 3/26/18

Starting at 2 p.m. PDT today, members of the Xbox One Preview Update Alpha ring will begin receiving the latest Xbox One system update (1804.180323-1922). Read on to learn more about fixes and known issues in the latest system update.

Fixes:

 

Network

  • When a user loses XBL internet connectivity for any variety of reasons (ISP issues, home router issues, XBL service issues, cable pull tests, etc.) the console will now recover its connectivity a lot quickly.

Party Chat

  • Stability fixes for Game chat.

Broadcasting

  • Resolved stability issues with the continuous broadcasting feature when users would pause and restart the broadcast.

My Games and Apps

  • Fixed issues when updating games.

Settings Display

  • Fixed an issue in which some TV devices would not show correct color and/or luminance for XBOX HDR GameDVR recordings.

Blu-ray App

  • We resolved an issue when some users would receive an error when Inserting a blu-ray without having the app installed.  The fix now takes the user to the store PDP (Product display page) to download the app.

Mixer

  • Resolved an issue in which resulted in all mixer audio streams being muted when the user simply wanted to mute the mic.

Store

  • Resolved issues in which Store purchase flow is broken for some users.

Microsoft Edge

  • We fixed an issue in which after opening several tabs, particularly if they are resource intensive, opening new tabs, typing in the address bar, or anything that causes a new process/component to be created can hang and eventually crash the browser.

Miscellaneous – Xbox App

  • We resolved an issue in which the Xbox App (PC, iOS or Android) was unable to wake the console if it was in connected standby mode.

 

Known Issues:

 

Pi-hole

  • Pi-hole users may encounter issues signing in, creating, or recovering accounts upon downloading the 1804 update. This is due to a new configuration file which is downloaded from a URL Pi-hole blocks by default.
  • Workaround: Add clientconfig.passport.net to the Pi-hole allowed IP address list.

Netflix

  • Netflix on Monitor only works at 1080p and does not support 1440p – Netflix is aware of the issue.  Workaround : If watching Netflix on a Monitor/LCD please set the display output to 1080p.

HDR Issues

  • Some users are discovering that some games are not showing in HDR – Please file feedback when you encounter this to help in the investigation.

Spotify Search

  • Some users are discovering that the search function in Spotify is not working. Please file feedback when you encounter this to help in the investigation. Workaround – Type in a search hit enter and nothing happens. Click the left stick twice and it searches properly.

Controller sharing/ Co-pilot vibration issues

  • Some users may experience a problem with a controller vibrating non-stop when using the share controller or the co-pilot feature.

 

Profile Color

  • Sometimes users may encounter the incorrect Profile color when powering on the console.
