The Xbox Insider Program creates a chance for Xbox fans to try out the latest Xbox One System updates, and give feedback on features and games still in development.

Recently, Microsoft released a new Xbox Preview Build 1804.180328-1922 which fixes two annoying background audio issues. Also, this Preview Build received the latest Xbox One system update (1804.180329-1920).

The new Xbox Preview version brings the following fixes:

  • Black screen or a console crash when the default audio is set to Dolby Atmos.
  • Low audio volumes some users have been encountering in various apps and games.
  • Failure notification and tracking of achievements in real-time.

Known issues and possible fixes:

  • 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 URL Pi-hole blocks by default.
    • FIX: Add clientconfig.passport.net to the Pi-hole allowed IP address list.
  • Netflix on Monitor only works at 1080p and does not support 1440p – Netflix is aware of the issue.
    • FIX: Set the display output to 1080p if watching Netflix on a Monitor/LCD.
  • Some users are discovering that some games are not showing in HDR – Please file feedback when you encounter this to help in the investigation.
  • Some users may experience a problem with a controller vibrating non-stop when using the share controller or the co-pilot feature.
  • Sometimes users may encounter the incorrect Profile color when powering on the console.
  • Some users are reporting when quitting a game or app via the guide Home is not loading and you see a black screen.
  • Hulu app volume is lower and being investigated.

Microsoft should roll our these fixes to the general public in the coming days.
