Microsoft releases a new 2408 update (2408.240331-2200) for Alpha Skip-Ahead XboxInsiders

Microsoft recently released a new 2408 update for Alpha Skip-Ahead XboxInsiders, bringing the version to 2408.240331-2200. The update included background improvements, ensuring a stable build for Xbox consoles.

Here are the System Update Details mentioned in the Xbox Wire post,

  • OS Version: XB_FLT_2408GE\26094.1507.240331-2200
  • Available: 2 p.m. PT – April 3, 2024
  • Mandatory: 3 a.m. PT – April 4, 2024

In the post, the Redmond tech giant mentioned that they also released a new version of Xbox Wireless Controller firmware, which introduced fixes, including improvements to thumbstick calibration and unexpected disconnections when using a wired headset.

If your controller needs an update, you will be prompted to install it when it is turned on and establish a connection with your console. However, if you don’t, you can launch the Xbox Accessories app and update it manually.

Here are the fixes included in the update:


  • Fixes to address an unexpected error when attempting to set a new dynamic background.

Game Clubs

  • Fixed an unexpected ‘Like’ tooltip that could appear in the Watch area when focus is on the filter.


  • Fixes to address some tiles on Home not navigating as expected, such as when trying to claim Perks.

Settings – Access Restrictions

  • Fixed an issue where disabling installing apps and games would not always behave as expected.


  • Various stability and performance fixes.
  • Various updates to properly reflect local languages across the console.

Microsoft also talked about the known issues related to audio & networking and assured that the team is working to find a fix for them.

If you encounter any other issues, you can use Report a Problem to mention them, which could help the Xbox staff better understand them. Microsoft also encourages Xbox Insiders to visit the community subreddit if they need support.

Also, to stay connected and informed about the Release Notes on Xbox Insider features, you can follow Xbox Insider on X (Formerly known as Twitter).

The Alpha Skip-Ahead ring on Xbox is an exclusive testing group; you have to enroll to get the pre-release versions. Given the potential for errors in these builds, Microsoft only restricts access to them by invitation.

However, if you are interested in joining the group, navigate to the Xbox Insider Hub> Activities > Available > Joining new rings from your console, then complete the survey.
