A new update for Xbox Insiders running the Preview Alpha & Alpha Skip Ahead 1806 System has begun to rollout. This new update fixes a bug that was affecting the ability to pause an app or game installation and also has some minor general system improvements as well.

Here’s the full release notes.


My Games and Apps

  • Fixed an issue with the Pause function when installing an App or Game.
  • System Performance
  • Misc. performance fixes in the platform.

Known Issues

Game Pass Tab: Preview Alpha and Alpha – Skip Ahead users will notice that the Entertainment tab has been replaced on the dashboard with Game Pass content. This new tab allows for easy access to the Game Pass catalog and is only available in the US region at this time, so Preview Alpha and Alpha Skip Ahead Insiders in regions outside of the US will continue to see the Entertainment tab.

Groups: You may see issues with Groups if you frequently switch between your non-Preview console and your Preview console. Workaround: Reset your Groups locally on the Preview console through “My games & apps” > Groups, then using the “Delete all groups” button at the bottom of the page to resync from the service.

Profile Color: Sometimes users may encounter an incorrect Profile color when powering on the console.

Networking: When the console wakes from Instant on/connected standby with a wired connection, the console may not recognize that the Ethernet cable is plugged in. Workaround: Please reboot the console via Guide -> reboot.
