Xbox Insider Release Notes – Omega (2310.231018-2200)

Upcoming Xbox Update Preview for Omega Ring Insiders

Hello, Xbox Insiders! We are excited to announce that a new Xbox Update Preview is on its way to the Omega ring. While the noticeable changes to the UI may be minimal, it’s crucial to remember that these preview OS builds include important background improvements to ensure a high-quality and stable build for Xbox consoles.

System Update Details:

  • OS version released: XB_FLT_2310ZN25398.2538.231018-2200
  • Available: 6:30 p.m. PT – October 19, 2023
  • Mandatory: 6:30 p.m. PT – October 20, 2023

Note: It’s important to know that this update may not occur automatically before it becomes mandatory. You can always find the most current update as soon as it’s available by opening the Guide > Profile & system > Settings > System > Updates.

Remember: Although newly enrolled users in this ring are not guaranteed to receive all early updates, they will receive the update prior to the GA release. Additionally, a small subset of users may remain on their current GA build until the next system update becomes mandatory for the public. For more information, visit the Xbox Insider Program FAQ.

Known Issues

We understand that there have been some issues listed in previous Xbox Insider Release Notes. Rest assured, these items are not being ignored, but it may take Xbox engineers more time to find a solution.


  • We have received reports of users experiencing intermittent issues with audio across the dashboard, games, and apps. If you have encountered these issues, please ensure that you have the latest firmware updates for your TV and other equipment. If you’re unsure, you may need to contact the manufacturer for assistance.

Keyboard Button Mapping for Xbox Controllers
