Xbox One Insider Preview build 15061 is now available in the Alpha ring

Microsoft released Windows 10 build 15061 for PCs in the Fast ring on Friday, March 17. Last night, the company made available Xbox One Insider Preview build 15061, or, to call it by its less glamorous name, rs2_release_xbox_1703.170316-1901, to devices in the Alpha ring. This new build arrives just two days after build 15058 was released to the Alpha ring, and comes full of fixes, but lacks new features.

Here are the bug fixes:

  • Game DVR: Fixed an issue which would cause two notifications to pop (instead of one) when uploading a Game DVR clip or screenshot.
  • Localization: Miscellaneous fixes to localized text and content.
  • Audio: Fixed an issue which would sometimes cause audio to stop playing after plugging in a headset.
  • Fixed an issue with Dolby Atmos for headphones that would cause audio to sto
  • p playing if headphones were plugged in or unplugged while using the Blu-Ray Player app.Resolved an issue with Dolby Atmos for headphones where apps would play no audio.
  • Blu-Ray Player: Fixed an issue where the Blu-Ray Player app would incorrectly indicate an audio format is not supported, and fail to continue without closing and relaunching the app.
  • Games & Apps: Resolved an issue which could sometimes cause newly installed apps to fail to launch, if launched while another app is in use.
  • Beam: Pressing X while the virtual keyboard is open should no longer quit the stream.

Also, here is the list of known issues:

  • 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.

If you're on the Alpha ring, you can get the update by either going to Settings -> System -> Updates, or by allowing the device to download and install updates while on standby, which can be done by activating the Instant-On mode and selecting to receive updates. If you are not on the Alpha ring, you can work your way up by completing Surveys and Quests in the Insider Hub.
