New Xbox One builds are rolling out to Beta and Ring 4 Insiders tonight. While Beta Insiders will get the latest 1705 update which includes features like chat overlay and social enhancements, Ring 4 Insiders will receive the old 1704 build with some bug fixes. It’s definitely a good day to be a Beta Insider. This latest update was quite problematic and it took Microsoft around 2 weeks to fix a lot of the issues. It’s quite a great experience now.
Aside from that, Beta Insiders should get custom gamerpics on Monday! Even though this is a tentative date, given the fact that Alpha Insiders have had access to them for many days, the chances are high that Beta Insiders will get access too. Microsoft hasn’t provided patch notes yet but we’ll update this story when they’re available. Until then, be on the lookout for updates later tonight at 2 PM PDT for Ring 4 Insiders and 6 PM PDT for Beta Insiders.
Update 1: Microsoft released the changelog for the Ring 4 update. It’s unclear what bugs it fixed but there are some changes. The changelog just says “Miscellaneous fixes and improvements.”
Update 2: The Xbox One build for Beta Insiders has been delayed. It looks like custom gamerpics may have been delayed too but it’s unclear at this point. Microsoft found a severe bug which caused Party Chat to keep on crashing. After Microsoft fixes the Party Chat issue, they’ll release the build next week. The bug also appears to be affecting Alpha testers so there won’t be any new builds until Monday or Tuesday.
Update 3: Today’s Xbox One build for Ring 4 Insiders contains various small fixes. It’s unclear when the delayed build from last week will roll out to Beta Insiders.
Update 4: It seems like Beta users will have to wait longer for their update. A new build is rolling out to Ring 3 Insiders tonight with “Miscellaneous fixes and improvements.” While it’s unclear what these changes are, it’s still going to be the old 1704 build which gets updated. We’ll let you know when Beta Insiders can expect their long-awaited patch.
Update 5: The long-awaited build which adds features like chat overlay and other enhancements finally rolled out to Beta Insiders. Microsoft didn’t provide a patch this time so be sure to report what’s different.
