Party Chat and Wi-Fi fixes coming to Xbox One Insiders for Alpha/Beta builds starting today

If you’ve been having some issues with staying connected with party chat or to your WiFi network in general, there’s good news coming. Brad Rossetti of the Xbox Insiders Program has announced via Twitter the Xbox One Insiders will be receiving a series of updates this week.

Today, the first Preview Beta Ring will be introducing a new 1706 build that fixes the party chat issues, rolling out around 2pm PDT. Tomorrow, we’re looking at seeing a WiFi fix rushed through the Alpha Ring with a projected Beta release on Friday.

As you may recall, Microsoft recently rebranded the Xbox Preview Program as the Xbox Insider Program. Just like in Windows 10 Mobile and on Windows 10 PC, there are several “Rings” which are based off how fast, or how slow, features are rolled out on a weekly and monthly basis.
