7, 2017

Microsoft today released a new Xbox build to the Alpha Ring users. This build includes improved automatic updates feature, and more. Read the change log below.

OS version released: rs_xbox_dev_flight.170201-2341

New Features:

  • Automatic Updates: You can now enable automatic updates independently from your console’s power mode (Instant-On or Energy-saving). To enable automatic updates, navigate to the new updates interface in Settings > System > Updates. Consoles in Energy-saving Mode will download any available updates at shut down. For consoles in Instant-On mode, the experience remains the same.
  • Achievement Tracker: You can now control the transparency level and number of achievements in the achievement tracker.


  • Cortana Resolved an issue which caused Cortana to fail to select a profile for sign-in.

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. Once the update is available to you, you can manually begin the update by launching the Guide and navigating to All Settings > System > Console info & updates.
