New Preview Alpha 1804 system update includes new features fixes and known issues.Check out the full changelog below.

New Feature:


  • In this build we are enabling the Mixer – Enable share controller functionality.  This feature will be turned on 9.00am Tuesday March 6th to ensure users have the build.  Users will need to reboot after 9.00am 3/6/18 to use this feature.
  • This will allow a broadcaster from the console to be able to share their controller with a viewer on mixer. They can together play a game where the Synthetic controller created for the mixer viewer is co-piloted to the Hardware controller of the broadcaster.


Microsoft Edge

  • This build includes fixes for Microsoft Edge that resolve the missing cursor, blank tabs and performance improvements.


  • When browsing Add-Ons in the Store, the Show All page will no longer be blank.


  • Miscellaneous fixes and improvements.

Known Issues:

System Update

  • This build installation will take a bit longer than usual, as it will require the full update size of 3.5 GB. This update does not factory reset the console it is a large payload. Download times are dependent on your Internet speeds and can likely be improved by using a wired network connection.


  • If Microsoft Edge was pinned prior to downloading the 1804 update, attempting to launch Microsoft Edge from the existing pin will fail.
  • Workaround: Delete the old Microsoft Edge pin and re-pin Microsoft Edge.


  • When accessing the Language & location page in Settings, it may take a long time for the page to load


  • 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 to the Pi-hole allowed IP address list.

Audio Issues

  • We are aware that some Spatial Audio users will experience unexpected game volumes and are working on a fix.
  • We are aware that the Mono output feature is not working as expected in latest builds. The team has identified a fix and is testing. Please turn off the feature if you are using an audio receiver with less than 7.1 audio channels.
  • We have identified an issue with Dolby Atmos for Home Theater and certain AVR models that will result in random sound cut outs. If a sound cut out ever occurs you can change your audio format settings to something else and then back to reset it.

Now TV

  • In the Now TV app some UI elements are disappearing during playback.

Settings – Accessory app

  • Some users may experience a problem not being able to assign controller configurations in the Xbox Accessory app.

Wi-Fi Lag Issues
