Alpha, Beta and Ring 3 members received a new Xbox insider builder bringing many fan-inspired features such as arena and custom gamerpics. New feature and issues of Build rs2_release_xbox_1704.170321-1900 are given below :

FEATURES

Xbox Live Arena

  • World of Tanks fans will be able to participate in new tournaments on their Xbox One, created by ESL and powered by Arena on Xbox Live.
  • Discover tournaments from your Xbox One or Xbox app on Windows 10, get notifications when your match is ready, jump directly into your match on the Xbox One, enjoy automatic results reporting, and show off the results on your activity feed.

 Profile and Activity Feed

  • Custom gamerpics are finally here! From your console, Windows 10 PC, or mobile phone, update your gamerpic with a custom image. Expect it to be in preview longer than other features to ensure it’s great for everyone when released.
  • New Join broadcast button in your profile, one of the many ways to access the game stream of someone broadcasting their gameplay.
  • Your profile will display your Arena tournament history and upcoming tournaments.
  • In your Activity Feed, they’re adding the ability to hide individual posts, pin posts to the top of your feed, and filter posts by friends, games or Clubs.

Clubs and Looking for Group (LFG)

  • When you create an LFG post, as the owner you will be able to see new vetting cards that include hero stats from gamers interested in joining your party. Hero stats are contextual to the game you’re playing, showing you relevant stats like kill to death ratio, rank, or score.
  • Achievement hunters, this one is for you! You will be able to search LFG posts from the Achievements tab, related to the Achievement you’re trying to finish.
  • They’re adding the number of open LFG posts to the Game Hub and Club Hub headers.
  • Have you made a successful LFG post that you want to create again? Now you can see previous LFG posts that you have created, participated or shown interest in, and can copy them to create new posts.
  • When creating an LFG post, see all the recent tags you’ve used and easily select them.
  • Club owners can upload custom images for their Club logo and Club background. Just like custom gamerpics, we expect this to be in preview longer than other features to ensure it’s great for everyone when released.
  • Club owners and admins will be identified and labeled in their text posts to better help them stand out and manage their community.
  • Club owners and admins can pin a post at the top of their Club feed.

My Games & Apps and Settings

  • In My Games & Apps, they’re adding the ability to filter your game library by platform–Xbox One and Xbox 360.
  • Captive Portal support for wireless internet is coming to Xbox One, which allows for Wi-Fi authentication through a browser. Great for colleges, hotels, or public Wi-Fi locations.
  • In the Settings, they’re adding the ability to select Kinect auto-zoom for Beam and Twitch broadcasts, as well as for the Skype app.
  • On the Xbox app for Windows 10, they’re adding the option to select the audio input and output sources for Party chat.

KNOWN ISSUES

Audio

  • The Audio output page is under construction and some of the new settings are not yet functional. New support is planned for Dolby Atmos for home theater, Dolby Atmos for headphones, and more in upcoming builds. An announcement will be made when these new features are ready to try out, enabling these settings now will have no effect.

Wireless Display

  • Wireless Display still fails to launch and immediately crashes to Home. This is quite a significant issue for people who beam their devices to Xbox One.

As started earlier, build rs2_release_xbox_1703.170321-1800 went out to members of the Alpha Ring last night. While the download didn’t add any new features, it fixed some aggravating issues. It’s coming to Beta and Ring 3 testers today. If you didn’t get the update automatically, you can always go to System in the Settings menu and download it manually. The changes and known issues are as follows:

FIXES

In-Game Purchases

  • Fixed an issue which prevented users from purchasing in-game content in certain games, including Overwatch and Destiny. This fix was originally applied on March 22 and should now be resolved for all affected users. You do not need to download the latest system update to resolve this.

Skate 3

  • Skate 3 should no longer crash to Home after attempting to join a Quick Match.

Sign-In

  • Fixed an issue which could sometimes prevent users from signing-in.
  • Update also corrects other minor problems and contains some behind-the-scenes improvements.

KNOWN ISSUES

Audio

  • The Audio output page is under construction and some of the new settings are not yet functional. New support is planned for Dolby Atmos for home theater, Dolby Atmos for headphones, and more in upcoming builds. An announcement will be made when these new features are ready to try out, enabling these settings now will have no effect.

  • Wireless Display still fails to launch and immediately crashes to Home. This is quite a significant issue for people who beam their devices to Xbox One.
