New in Xbox One build 1710.170916-2000

FIXES: 

Games & Apps

  • Fixed issues which sometimes caused games and apps to fail to appear in Ready to Install.

Home

• Fixed issues which could sometimes cause the dashboard to load to a black screen.

• Fixed images on the Mixer tab appearing clipped or duplicated.

• Fixed issues which could sometimes cause Home or Guide to crash.

Light Theme

  • Fixed numerous user interface issues which occurred when using Light Theme.

Virtual Keyboard

  • The virtual keyboard auto-suggests feature now functions correctly.

KNOWN ISSUES: 

Blu-Ray Player

  • 3D Blu-Ray content may not correctly play in 3D.

Profile

  • You may be unable to scroll sideways in the Welcome and Social tabs.

Game Hub

  • The focus may get stuck when navigating between tabs in Game Hub.
  • The tab buttons in Game Hub may have a black glow.

Light Theme

  • There are some known visual contrast issues in messaging, the entertainment twist, and the Mixer twist—you may see white on white. Fixes will be coming soon.

Sign-in

  • When using Arabic or Hebrew language and signing in with a profile using the “Lock it down” security preference, the sign-in screen which requests Microsoft account e-mail address and password is distorted. This does not affect the profile if it is set to use the “Ask for my passkey” or “No barriers” security preferences.

Workaround: Set the console to use another language, sign-in, and set the profile’s security preference to “Ask for my passkey” or “No barriers”. Alternatively, you can still type in your password as normal using the virtual keyboard though the screen is distorted.

Netflix

  • When using Hebrew language, Netflix fails to launch.

Note that not all planned features for this update are available at this time. If you’re on the Xbox Preview Alpha ring, you can check for the latest Xbox One Insider build 1710.170916-2000 by going to Settings -> System -> Updates.
