Starting at 6 p.m. PDT today, members of the Xbox One Preview Update Alpha ring will begin receiving the latest Xbox One system update (1804.180308-1900). Read on to learn more about new features, fixes and known issues in the latest system update.


Audio Issues Dolby Atmos

    We have resolved an issue with Dolby Atmos for Home Theater and certain AVR models that will result in random sound cutouts and the setting for Atmos will no longer revert to PCM.

Plex App

    In the Plex App we have mitigated the issue in which some users are experiencing buffering.

Known Issues:


    When accessing the Language & location page in Settings, it may take a long time for the page to load.

○ Pi-Hole

    Pi-hole users may encounter issues signing in, creating, or recovering accounts upon downloading the 1804 update. This is due to a new configuration file which is downloaded from a URL Pi-hole blocks by default.

    Workaround: Add to the Pi-hole allowed IP address list.

Audio Issues

    We are aware that some Spatial Audio users will experience unexpected game volumes and are working on a fix.

    We are aware that the Mono output feature is not working as expected in latest builds. The team has identified a fix and is testing. Please turn off the feature if you are using an audio receiver with less than 7.1 audio channels.

    We have identified an issue with Dolby Atmos for Home Theater and certain AVR models that will result in random sound cutouts. If a sound cut out ever occurs you can change your audio format settings to something else and then back to reset it.

    Some users have reported that HDMI in volume is lower for TV Input and some media apps.  We are actively investigating.  Workaround: Start Background Music and goto the Audio Settings and set the volume slider to 50% rather than 0% and the volume issue is fixed.

Now TV

In the Now TV app, some UI elements are disappearing during playback.

Plex App

    In the Plex App, some users are experiencing buffering.  We are actively investigating this issue.  Workaround You can back out of the Plex app to home then go back into the Plex app and playback continues.

○ Netflix

    The Netflix team are updating the app as it is crashing for some users.  Workaround Please check for an update for the Netflix app.
Netflix on Monitor only works at 1080p and does not support 1440p Netflix is aware of the issue.  Workaround: If watching Netflix on a Monitor/LCD please set the display output to 1080p.


    We are investigating an issue in which some users are experiencing the console shutdown after you turn it on.  Workaround Simply turn the console back on.


    We are investigating why some users are unable to play 4k content in the Vudu app.

Virtual Keyboard

    The virtual keyboard disappears randomly when inputting text.Workaround Plug in a wired or wireless keyboard

HDR Issues

    Some users are discovering that some games are not showing in HDR Please file feedback when you encounter this to help in the investigation and please provide the make and model of your TV and the firmware version.

Game Install Progress

    We are aware of an issue in which the Game Progress status shows over 300%.  Please note that this is a different scenario to the fix in this build referenced above in fixes.

Spotify Search

    Some users are discovering that the search function in Spotify is not working. Please file feedback when you encounter this to help in the investigation.

Store app

    Some users are experiencing a problem in which the Store App is failing to update. Please file feedback when you encounter this to help in the investigation.


    We are aware that the Schedule details is missing after you re-select your schedule from Dark or Light in Theme.

Settings Accessory App

    Some users may experience a problem not being able to assign controller configurations in the Xbox Accessory app.

Casting from the Xbox Apps such as YouTube

    Automatic discovery over WiFi is currently not working correctly. The YouTube app relies on this to make pairing seamless (Link with Wi-Fi). There is a known issue with uPnP and state separation that is being investigated. In the meantime, please use the second pairing method in the YouTube app. Launch the YouTube app then go to Settings > Link TV and Phone > Link with TV Code. Follow the directions on screen.
