First 1706 build for Xbox One Alpha Ring brings Mixer co-streaming & other features.

Microsoft has pushed the first 1706 Build to Xbox One insiders in Alpha preview Ring. The build version is rs2_release_xbox_1706.170526-2218. This build brings some new and interesting features like Mixer Co-streaming, email Id in Profiles, and controller linking.

Apart from these features, there are some major improvements and fixes too. Ready to install section in apps and games now loads much faster now as per information provided separately by Xbox Team.

There are some known issues too that you may like to read. Read the full official changelog and known issues below.

Build 1706.170526-2218 Changelog:

Profile

When a signed in user is selected in the Guide, the e-mail address associated with their account will now display under their profile, as well as on Home. This feature is enabled by default for adult accounts, and disabled for child accounts (child accounts will never see the e-mail address associated with their account displayed).

Adult accounts can disable this feature by navigating to Settings > Account > Sign-in, security & passkey.

Co-streaming

You can now invite a friend to combine their game broadcast with yours! Sign in with an account that has an Xbox Live Gold subscription and invite a friend to your party. Once you’ve begun broadcasting your game from the Guide, you’ll be able to select “Invite party to co-stream” from the Party tab. Co-streaming is currently available only to Alpha Insiders, so we’d suggest using the Insider forums to sync up with other Alpha Insiders to test out this feature.

Controller Linking

Signing into your Xbox account can now be done with a click of the Xbox button thanks to the new controller linking feature! You can now link an account to a specific controller by opening the Guide, navigating to Settings > Account > Sign-in, security & passkey and selecting the “This controller signs in…” option followed by “Link controller.” From there, test the feature out for yourself by signing out of your account and then turning your controller off and then back on. Find more detailed steps and provide your thoughts on this feature by accepting the “Link Your Controller” Quest in the Xbox Insiders Hub!
