Known Issues

We understand that there are ongoing issues mentioned in previous Xbox Insider Release Notes. Rest assured, our Xbox engineers are actively working on finding solutions, but it may take some time.


  • We have received reports of intermittent audio issues across the dashboard, games, and apps. If you’re experiencing these issues, make sure you have the latest firmware updates for your TV and other equipment. If you’re unsure, reach out to the manufacturer for assistance.
    • Note: If you continue to experience audio issues after updating the firmware, please provide feedback via “Report a Problem” with the “Reproduce with advanced diagnostics” option. Select the category “Console experiences” and “Console Audio Output Issues”. Include as much information as possible:
      • When did the issue start?
      • Did you lose audio in the game/app only or system audio as well?
      • Does changing the audio format resolve the issue? If yes, what was the format before and after?
      • Does rebooting the system resolve the issue?
      • What equipment and setup do you have?
      • Any additional information you can provide to help reproduce the problem.


  • We are currently investigating reports of connectivity issues upon booting the console. If you encounter this problem, please report it immediately via “Report a Problem”.

Remember to use “Report a Problem” to keep us informed of any issues you encounter. While we may not be able to respond to everyone, the data we collect is crucial for finding solutions.

What Happens to Your Feedback

If you’re an Xbox Insider seeking support, be sure to reach out to the community subreddit. There, you can connect with official Xbox staff, moderators, and fellow Insiders who are ready to assist you with your concerns.

Before posting in the subreddit, we recommend checking recent posts to see if your issue has already been addressed. It’s best to add to existing threads rather than creating a new one. This allows us to provide you with the best support possible. And don’t forget to use “Report a Problem” before posting. The information shared in both places helps us understand your issue better.

Thank you to all the Xbox Insiders in the subreddit for your contributions. We appreciate your friendly and community-driven conversations and support.
