Xbox Insiders in the Alpha ring are now testing version 1908

It's been 10 days since Microsoft released the July 2019 Xbox Update, and while most suspected that Xbox Insiders would be on to 19H2 now, that's not the case. As it turns out, there's yet another monthly feature update before that happens, and the version number is 1908.

There are also no new features for the update yet, and the blog post for today's build doesn't even say that there are new features on the way. Microsoft's Brad Rossetti did, however, say that today's build 18362.6039 "has fixes we need asap to measure build quality."

The only fixes actually listed in the changelog are, "Various stability fixes to the system."

There are also a couple of known issues to be aware of:


  • 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.

Profile Color

  • Sometimes users may encounter the incorrect Profile color when powering on the console.

As of right now, the only people testing 19H2, or version 1910, of the Xbox One Experience are those on the Skip Ahead subset of the Preview Alpha ring. At least for the next month, the regular Preview Alpha ring will be on version 1908.
