Known Issues

We understand that some issues have been listed in previous Xbox Insider Release Notes. These items aren’t being ignored, but it will 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 experienced issues, be sure to have the latest firmware updates for your TV and other equipment. If unsure, contact the manufacturer for assistance.


  • We are aware that the Share button may not behave as expected, and we are working on a fix.


  • We have received reports of issues with in-game party management in some titles, and we are investigating.

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.


  • 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 you’re able.

Make sure to use Report a problem to keep us informed of your issue. We may not be able to respond to everyone, but the data we’ll gather is crucial to finding a resolution.
