Xbox One Insider Preview build 15023 is now available in the Preview Beta ring

Microsoft today is releasing the first Creators Update preview to Xbox Insiders that are in the Preview Beta ring. The build in question is 15023.1002, and it was offered to the Preview Alpha ring two days ago.

But while the Alpha ring only got a few fixes out of it, Beta ring members get quite a bit more, because as mentioned above, it's the first Creators Update build for them. This means that you'll get a whole new Dashboard.

Home has been redesigned, but perhaps the biggest change is that hitting the Xbox button on your controller no longer brings you to Home. It now brings up the Guide, which has an option to bring you Home.

The new setup is meant to allow you to get where you want to go in less time. In our hands-on with the Creators Update, we found it to be very useful.

The announcement listed some known issues to be aware of in the new build:

  • Cortana

    • Cortana may be too responsive to phrases which sound like “Hey Cortana”. The development team is continuing to tune and improve this.

    • Cortana may take a long time to respond when activated while playing certain games.

    • Scheduled Cortana reminders will not provide a notification if the user who created the reminder is signed in, but not the current active user.

  • Ubisoft Club
    When launching the Ubisoft Club app, the screen automatically starts scrolling down, and prevents the user from scrolling back up.

  • Sign-in
    With profile sign-in settings set to “Lock it down”, you may be unable to sign-in again after playing a game, then signing out.
    Workaround: Hard reset the console (hold down the button on the front of the console for five seconds until it fully powers down, then power it back on).

  • EA Access
    The EA Access app may indicate you are not an EA Access subscriber when you are. This does not affect your ability to download or play games from the Vault, or receive discounts on EA titles.

  • Guide
    Microsoft Edge webpages which have been pinned on the Guide tab fail to launch the webpage.

  • Screen Dimming
    The screen may dim after a short amount of time while viewing videos in certain apps (Hulu Plus).

  • Settings - Ease of Access
    When enabling the Mono output setting in Ease of Access - Audio, Settings becomes unresponsive, crashes, and fails to launch on subsequent attempts.
    Workaround: To launch Settings, perform a hard reset (hold down the button on the front of the console for five seconds until it fully powers down, then power it back on).

  • 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.

  • IGN
    The IGN app launches and immediately crashes to Home.

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

If you've been selected for the Preview Beta ring, you can get it through Settings -> System -> Console info & updates. If you haven't been selected for Alpha or Beta, you'll need to work your way up by completing Quests and Surveys in the Insider Hub.
