Xbox Preview Alpha Ring 1908 update brings minor improvements

Home » News » Latest Xbox update stills breaks Dolby Atmos audio for many

Microsoft released the latest 1908 Xbox One system update for the members of the Xbox One Preview Alpha Ring. Along with it also comes the 1910 Xbox One system update, but for the Skip Ahead Ring.

Both updates include some stability and localization fixes, but there are no notable changes or new features.

Also, there are no new bug fixes, as the known issues remain the same:

  • Users who have Dolby Atmos enabled and console display settings set to 120hz with 36 bits per pixel (12-bit) are experiencing loss of Dolby Atmos audio in some situations. Workaround: Disable 120hz or set Video Fidelity to 30 bits per pixel (10-bit) or lower.
  • Sometimes users may encounter the incorrect Profile color when powering on the console.

These updates succeed the freshly released July 2019 Update.

The Xbox development team was pretty quiet and didn’t disclose too much information about the updates, but seeing how in the past couple of months they’ve tested new features with the insiders, the official 1908 update may bring interesting things.

It seems like these minor upgrades just prepare the ground for much bigger things. Hopefully, Microsoft is working on some new features that will shake up things a bit.

Maybe we’ll finally see some clues about project xCloud in the official update, next month.

If you’re one of the lucky Skip Ahead Ring insiders, share your experience with the new update in the comments section below and we’ll continue the talk.

UPDATE: Starting July 23rd, members of the Xbox One Preview Beta Ring will begin receiving the latest 1908 Xbox One system update. My Games and Apps receives some download queue improvements:

We are adding a new feature in this build to the Download Queue in My Games and Apps today based on User feedback.  You will now see the Estimated time to finish downloads appears in queue. Please test out the new feature, provide feedback, and complete the survey in the Xbox Insider Hub.

The already known issues remain the same.
