Everyone on Xbox One Insider Preview Ring 3 can now get the Creators Update preview

Microsoft announced today that it is releasing a new Xbox One Insider Preview build to the Beta ring and Preview Ring 3. It's the same build that was released to Alpha last night, 15063.1003, but it's important for some members of Preview Ring 3 that have been left out so far, in that it will be offered to the entire ring.

Nine days ago, the first Creators Update build was released to Preview Ring 3, but it was only offered to a subset of Insiders in the ring. At the time, Microsoft said that the remaining Insiders would get it over the next month, which frankly, seemed a bit odd given that the update is slated to roll out to the general public within that time.

Tonight's build focuses on fixes, so here's what got fixed:

  • In-Game Purchases
    Fixed an issue which prevented users from purchasing in-game content in certain games (including Overwatch and Destiny).
    NOTE: This fix was applied on 3/22/17 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.

  • Miscellaneous
    Miscellaneous fixes and improvements.

And there are still a couple of known issues:

  • Settings - Display & sound

    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
    The Wireless Display app fails to launch and immediately crashes to Home.

The update will begin rolling out at 6pm PT tonight, so make sure to check your Xbox One console for updates after that time. If you're already on the Creators Update, you can get it by going to Settings -> System -> Updates, and if you're not yet, you'll find it under Console info & updates.
