Latest Xbox One builds for Beta, Ring 3 and Ring 4 Insiders fix numerous issues

Update 3: New 1706 Xbox One builds will continue to roll out to Beta and other Xbox Insiders until the 1710 build is good enough for other rings. So don’t expect to get the latest build but improvements of 1706 for at least the next week.


A new Xbox One build is rolling out to Alpha Insiders tonight which adds Mixer co-streaming, controller sign-in and fixes a lot of bugs. We haven’t had many builds recently so it’s great to see Microsoft back on the bandwagon. If this Xbox One build is well-received, then it’ll even roll out to Beta Insiders later this week. If not, then expect a barrage of patches to fix basic problems. We suspect the latter because whenever they add new features a lot of problems arise. Microsoft hasn’t shared patch notes yet but we’ll keep you posted if they reveal some earth-shattering new features. If you’re in the Alpha Ring, be sure to download the update later on today.


Update 1: Microsoft shared the changelog a few hours before the update will roll out.

OS version released: rs2_release_xbox_1706.170526-2218

Available: 2:00PM PDT 5/30 (9:00PM GMT 30/5)

NEW FEATURES:

Welcome to 1706 on Xbox One! This month we’re rolling out more fan-requested improvements, new features for Mixer, and much more!

NOTE: Not all planned features for the 1706 update are available at this time.

• Profile

When a signed in user is selected in the Guide, the e-mail address associated with their account will now display under their profile, as well as on Home. This feature is enabled by default for adult accounts, and disabled for child accounts (child accounts will never see the e-mail address associated with their account displayed).

Adult accounts can disable this feature by navigating to Settings > Account > Sign-in, security & passkey.

• Co-streaming

You can now invite a friend to combine their game broadcast with yours! Sign in with an account that has an Xbox Live Gold subscription and invite a friend to your party. Once you’ve begun broadcasting your game from the Guide, you’ll be able to select “Invite party to co-stream” from the Party tab. Co-streaming is currently available only to Alpha Insiders, so we’d suggest using the Insider forums to sync up with other Alpha Insiders to test out this feature.

Learn more about co-streaming and other features new to Mixer here, and be sure to complete the “Invite to Co-Stream” Quest and Survey in the Xbox Insiders Hub to provide your feedback!

• Controller Linking

Signing into your Xbox account can now be done with a click of the Xbox button thanks to the new controller linking feature! You can now link an account to a specific controller by opening the Guide, navigating to Settings > Account > Sign-in, security & passkey and selecting the “This controller signs in…” option followed by “Link controller.” From there, test the feature out for yourself by signing out of your account and then turning your controller off and then back on. Find more detailed steps and provide your thoughts on this feature by accepting the “Link Your Controller” Quest in the Xbox Insiders Hub!

Update 2: New 1706 Xbox One builds are rolling out to Alpha, Beta, Ring 3 and Ring 4 Insiders. Features like Arena changes and Mixer co-streaming rolled out to everyone a few days ago but there were some bugs. For example, there were issues with the Xbox Store loading content and Ready to Install not working properly. The preview builds mostly address these concerns and implement other behind-the-scenes changes. Skype, Mixer and other programs also received numerous fixes. Expect new updates through the week of July 31 because the build needs a lot of work.
