New in Xbox One build 16281 (1710.170831-1900)

Light and Dark Themes

Xbox One dashboard a light mode Sihmar (2)

  • Adding new themes to the dashboard. In addition to the current theme, you’ll be able to select a new light theme. Please note that this setting will not be enabled till 9.00am PDT 9/6/17 as we need all Alpha users to be on this new build. After 9.00am on 9/6 simply reboot your console to see the setting.
  1. Navigate to Settings > Personalization > System personalization > System theme.
  2. Select Light.

Notifications enhancements

  • Game invites are moving from Action Center to the Multiplayer tab of Guide and Recent Achievements will now be in the Achievements tab. This makes it easy to see at a glance if you have new invites or Achievements when opening the Guide, and makes accessing those notifications faster, now that other system notifications aren’t in the way

It also contains one fix for Movies & TV:

  • Movies & TV and Misc Media Apps
    Black screens during movie playback have been fixed as has Fast Forward.

known issues

Light Theme

  • There are some known visual contrast issues in messaging, the entertainment twist and the Mixer twist – you may see white one 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.

Minecraft Better Together Beta

  • Other games fail to launch after launching the Minecraft Beta.
    Workaround: This occurs if the Minecraft Beta is the first game launched after powering on the console; launch another game before Minecraft to avoid this issue. If you are stuck in this state, hard reset your console.

Blu-Ray Player

  • 3D Blu-Ray content plays in 2D.

Game Hub

  • Game Hub isn’t accurately tracking Gamerscore and achievement unlocks for certain games.

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 16281 or 1710.170831-1900 by going to Settings -> System -> Updates.

Also, If your console is in Instant-On mode and you have been selected to receive the update, it will download and install the update and reboot to standby.

  8. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to
    tell someone!
