This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: Xbox Wire.

Starting at 6:00 p.m. PDT today, members of the Xbox One Preview Alpha Ring will begin receiving the latest Xbox One system update (1810.180708-1920). Learn more about the new features in development for 1810 here, and read on for a list of known issues in this 1810 system update.

Known Issues



  • We are tracking an issue with various headsets and mics not working in the build such as Turtle Beach wireless headsets. Connecting multiple headsets along with more than one input device on the system (physical controllers, game streaming controllers, wireless headsets), will cause headsets to no longer work.
    • Workaround: Disconnect all input and audio devices, including controllers, wired and wireless headsets, and game streaming controllers.  Once they have been disconnected, connect only one controller and one headset.


Virtual Keyboard

  • We are tracking an issue where users are reporting that various keys & controller shortcuts for the virtual keyboard are not being recognized. Certain keys (spacebar, @ symbol, – symbol) are not registering when being pressed on the keyboard (both the virtual keyboard and via a USB keyboard)



  • We are tracking an issue with users not being able to select/change options under Device power options in Device Control. When users are attempting to change their power toggle settings, no options are being presented.


Game Pass Tab

  • Preview Alpha – Skip Ahead users will notice that the Entertainment tab has been replaced on the dashboard with Game Pass content. This new tab allows for easy access to the Game Pass catalog and is only available in the US region at this time, so Preview Alpha Skip Ahead Insiders in regions outside of the US will continue to see the Entertainment tab.



  • You may see issues with Groups if you frequently switch between your non-Preview console and your Preview console.
    • Workaround: Reset your Groups locally on the Preview console through “My games & apps” > Groups, then using the “Delete all groups” button at the bottom of the page to resync from the service.


Microsoft Edge

  • The cursor may disappear when exiting and re-entering the app
    • Workaround: Press Y when re-entering the app to make the cursor re-appear


Profile Color

  • Sometimes users may encounter an incorrect Profile color when powering on the console.



  • When the console wakes from Instant on/connected standby with a wired connection, the console may not recognize that the Ethernet cable is plugged in.
    • Workaround: Please reboot the console via Guide -> reboot.
