Xbox Insider Release Notes – Alpha Skip-Ahead (2408.230920-2000)

New Xbox Update Preview for Alpha Skip-Ahead Insiders

We have an exciting new Xbox Update Preview coming to the Alpha Skip-Ahead ring. This update focuses on background improvements to ensure a quality and stable build for Xbox consoles.

Even though there may not be noticeable changes to the UI, we still believe it’s important to keep you informed about updates to your device. Here are the details:

System Update Details

  • OS version released: RS_XBOX_DEV_FLIGHT25957.1001.230920-2000
  • Available: 2 p.m. PT – September 22, 2023
  • Mandatory: 3 a.m. PT – September 23, 2023

Fixes Implemented

Thanks to the hard work of Xbox engineers, we are happy to announce the following fixes have been implemented for this build:

My Games & Apps

  • Fixed an issue where some installed titles could display as not installed when viewing the Manage page.


  • Various updates to properly reflect local languages across the console.
  • Note: Users participating in Preview may see “odd” text across the console, for more information go here.

Known Issues

We understand that there are ongoing issues that have been listed in previous Xbox Insider Release Notes. Our engineers are actively working to find solutions, but it may take time.


  • We have received reports of users experiencing intermittent issues with audio across the dashboard, games, and apps.
  • Note: If you experience audio issues, please submit feedback via Report a Problem immediately with the “Reproduce with advanced diagnostics” option, then select the category “Console experiences” and “Console Audio Output Issues”.
  • Make sure to include as much information as possible, such as when the issue started, whether you lost audio in just the game/app or system audio as well, if changing the audio format resolved the issue, if rebooting resolved the issue, details about your setup, and any additional information to reproduce the problem.

Keyboard Button Mapping for Xbox Controllers

  • If you change your keyboard language settings while the Xbox Accessories app is open, the change will be reflected after quitting the app or rebooting your console.

Manage Queue

  • We are aware that recently installed titles may wrap to a second row unexpectedly, and we are working on a fix.


  • We are investigating reports of an issue where the console may not connect to the network as expected on boot. If you experience this, be sure to report the issue via Report a Problem as soon as possible. A temporary workaround is to wait a minute for the connection to establish, or restart your Xbox from the Power Center.

Upload your Captures to OneDrive

  • If you are backing up a large collection of captures (1000+) to OneDrive, it may take a while for everything to appear.

Remember to use Report a Problem to keep us informed of your issue. Your feedback is crucial in helping us find solutions.
