We understand that some issues have been persisting from previous Xbox Insider Release Notes. Our team is actively working on finding solutions, but it may take some time. Here are a few known issues:
- Intermittent audio issues have been reported across the dashboard, games, and apps.
Note: If you experience audio problems, please submit feedback via Report a Problem immediately, select the “Reproduce with advanced diagnostics” option, and choose the categories “Console experiences” and “Console Audio Output Issues.” Be sure to provide detailed information about when the issue started, whether audio loss occurred only in the game/app or system-wide, any changes in audio format, the effectiveness of rebooting, your setup details, and any additional information that can help reproduce the problem.
Keyboard Button Mapping for Xbox Controllers
- If you change your keyboard language settings while the Xbox Accessories app is open, the change will take effect after closing the app or rebooting your console.
- We are currently investigating reports of connection issues on boot. If you encounter this, please report the issue via Report a Problem as soon as possible.
Workaround: Wait for a minute to establish the connection. If your console still doesn’t connect, restart it from the Power Center by holding the Xbox button, selecting Restart console, and then choosing Restart.
Upload your Captures to OneDrive
- If you are backing up a large collection of captures (1000+) to OneDrive, it may take some time. Please allow a few days for everything to appear.
Remember, using Report a Problem is crucial in helping us address your issues effectively. While we may not be able to respond to every individual, the data we collect from your feedback is vital in finding a resolution.
