Xbox One Insider Preview build 15058 is now available in the Alpha ring - here's what's new

After releasing a new Windows 10 for PCs Insider Preview build earlier today, Microsoft is now offering an Xbox One build to the Preview Alpha ring, bringing the build number to 15058.1000, or rs2_release_xbox_1703.170313-1900.

Unlike previous builds over the past couple weeks that focused on fixes, this one actually has a new feature:

  • New Update Screen
    When your console downloads a system update, a new update screen will pop up the next time the console is powered on. This update screen has some basic details about the update, as well as a link to a video (for more information) or the option to go to Home. Please provide us your feedback to this experience via Report a Problem and the Preview Forums!

There's also one issue that's been fixed:

  • Xbox App

    Fixed an issue which would cause game streaming to stop when launching a new game.

And of course, there are known issues:

  • Controller

    Upon resuming from connected standby, you may be prompted to update your controller firmware when no update is available.

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

  • Notifications
    Some users may not receive certain types of notifications.

  • Game Clips
    After capturing a game clip, the game clip fails to automatically post to the Activity Feed (if your profile is configured to do so). Workaround: Manually view game clips in Profile > Captures > Manage captures and post to the Activity Feed.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

Build 15058 is most certainly not the RTM build, as 15060 was the build number for the Windows 10 preview that was released today, and these numbers will most certainly line up when the Creators Update is finalized. It's actually rumored to be happening this week, so an RTM isn't far off.

If you're on the Alpha ring, you can get the update by going to Settings -> System -> Updates. If not, you can work your way up by completing Surveys and Quests in the Insider Hub.
