New Features and Experiences

We have exciting news! Beta and Delta users can expect something new coming to their Xbox One update preview.

Introducing the Game Activity tab!

The Xbox team is ready to preview a new experience that makes it easier to discover game related activities around the game you are currently playing or the last game you played.  We want users to know what is happening around their favorite games, hunt for achievements, and discover new ways to engage with liked minded gamers. With this goal in mind, while this feature is active, a random subset of users in Preview will now see the Game Activity tab in place of the Achievement tab, which includes:

  • Achievements: Achievements are here to stay! Your top option on the tab is still the list of Achievements for the game you are playing or your most recently played game. We have added new sorting and filtering options to the list.
    • Notice the new shortcut to turn the Achievement Tracker On/Off
    • You can view the list of your Recent Achievements in your notifications. From the Home tab in the Guide, scroll down and select the notification bell icon to see them.  
    • You will find your next achievements and the monthly Gamerscore leaderboard by selecting your Profile in the Guide, then scroll down past “My subscriptions” to locate both options.
    • Of course, you can still find and compare your achievement history, Gamerscore leaderboard, and Game Pass quest progress on your Profile.
  • Friends playing: See which friends are playing, or have played, this game.
  • Looking for group: See LFG posts for this game to find new people to play with.
  • Events: See Suggested Events that are happening in-game or access the ones you have expressed interest in!
  • Official club: Check out updates from developers and see posts from the Xbox Live community.

We want to gather initial feedback and analyze usage to evaluate these changes, and adjusting this experience based on your reports. Achievements are a pillar of the Xbox ecosystem, and we want to support them alongside promoting different ways to engage with your favorite games!

Home – Content Blocks

Two new content blocks have been added and will now be made default for most users. For those of you who already have these content blocks enabled, nothing will change.

  • The Entertainment block will showcase the latest content in movies, TV, and music across popular entertainment apps.
    • If you want to see all Entertainment options currently available, you can launch the application by clicking the Entertainment button in the block.
      • Note: This block will only be available for users located in the US, UK, Germany, France, Canada and Australia
  • The “Events” content block will display the top four most recent events rotating through the block.
    • If you want to see all Events currently available, you can launch the Events application by clicking the Events button in the block.

If you don’t see either block for some reason (and are in a supported region), simply scroll to “Add more” at the bottom of Home, click See All Suggestions then select the block you want and press A to add it.

Profile Themes

Profile Themes, currently available in the Xbox (Beta) app and Game Bar on PC, can now be displayed on console! View your own theme, and view themes other users have chosen on their profiles. You will be able to see these themes both in the user’s full profile as well as the mini profile in the Guide.

Themes are still a work in progress, so pardon our dust!

  • As the on-console theme picker is still being finished, please use the Xbox (Beta) app on PC to set a theme via the following process:
    • Download and install the Xbox (Beta) app from the Windows Store.
    • Once signed-in, click on your Gamerpic in the upper right and choose “View profile.”
    • Click on “Change background,” then choose from one of the themes available.
    • Once set, the theme should now show up on your profile in the Xbox (Beta) app, in Game Bar, and on console.

Sign in

  • To make it easier to choose an account when booting up your console, you will now be prompted with a full screen sign in experience before landing on Home. Customers with auto-sign in or using a linked controller will not see this screen.

Fixes Implemented

Thanks to the hard work of Xbox engineers, we are happy to announce the following fixes have been implemented for this build:


  • Fixed an issue where navigation would be unresponsive when viewing a video thumbnail.


  • The Delete button in the Share menu should now work correctly.


  • Various updates to properly reflect local languages across the console
    • Note: Users participating in Preview may see “odd” text across the console, for more information go here.

Known Issues

We understand some issues have been listed in previous Xbox Insider Release Notes. These items aren’t being ignored, but it will take Xbox engineers more time to find a solution.

We’re still tracking these known issues:


  • Some users have reported that Dolby Atmos for Headphones audio setting changes when the console is rebooted/updated.
    • Note: If you attempt to set the audio to Dolby Atmos for Headphones and see a message advising you to launch the Dolby Access App, please file feedback before launching the app.


  • Some users have reported that the audio mixer cannot be used to adjust chat/game audio levels.
  • We’ve received reports of the Guide not launching or loading.

My Games & Apps

  • Users have reported seeing black tiles instead of game artwork when browsing their collection.
    • Note: We are still investigating the issue, please report the issue again from the console if you have done so with a prior update and are still seeing this behavior.
  • Some titles in collection may appear with a “trial” tag incorrectly in collection.

New Store Experience

  • Some titles may display a “Not currently available” message on the product page and will be unavailable to purchase
    • Note: Users can use the Microsoft Store on the web or Windows to complete purchases for these items.
  • Users will not be able to use the “gifting” option for both Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles at this time.
  • Users will not be able to use the “Build a bundle” functionality at this time
    • Workaround: Create the bundle via the Microsoft Store on the web or Windows.
  • Xbox Design Lab customization is not currently supported.
    • Workaround: Use the Microsoft Store on the web or Windows to purchase.
