Microsoft today released a new Xbox Insider Preview Build for insiders in the Alpha Ring. The Build has been updated to new version 16287 which is a preview of version 1710. The latest build contains some minor new features along with fixes for issues found in the previous build.

With the latest build for Xbox One users, the company is now enhancing the notification system which now keeps you updated with all what is happening with your friends, clubs, broadcasts and more even if your Xbox is idle.

The screen dimming functionality has also been updated which now prevents screen ghosting when the screen is dimmed and showing enhanced notifications. This feature if not available immediately, make sure to do a hard reset to get the feature.

The latest update also brings a bunch of fixes and some known issues for the Xbox One users:


  • Controller
    A new controller firmware update is available for Xbox One controllers with Bluetooth. You can manually download the update from Settings > Kinect & devices > Devices & accessories > Device info.
  • Games & Apps
    Fixed an issue which caused games to sometimes fail to appear in Ready to Install.
    Game Hub
    Fixed an issue which sometimes caused Game Hub to display inaccurate Gamer score or achievements.
  • Minecraft Better Together Beta
    Other games should no longer fail to launch after launching the Minecraft Beta.
  • Blu-Ray Player
    3D Blu-Ray content now correctly plays in 3D.

Known issues:

  • 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.
  • Home
