New Build 1704 for Xbox One out for Alpha ring Insiders

Insider Program, Xbox

Microsoft’s Xbox team has released yet another update for Xbox One insiders this week. This update is out for alpha ring insiders right now. The update brings in a whole new build for Xbox One, version 1704. This preview build includes a single bug fix and some known issues. This build was originally supposed to have the support for custom gamerpics, but it has been delayed to the next week.

The changelog and the news of the release were posted on the reddit by Brad(/u/workwombat), Head of Preview Program at reddit /r/xboxone. The news reads :


Preview ALPHA Ring – new build available at 6.00pm PDT today.

Welcome to 1704 on Xbox One! Here is all the new features coming

An ETA on Custom gamerpics being turned on for the Alpha ring is now next week as we work through some fine tuning.

We have just posted this to the Xbox Forums (restricted access via Xbox Insider membership) and I wanted to share here.

NOTE: Preview Alpha consoles in certain locales (JA-JP, ZH-HK, ZH-TW, JA, ZH-SG, ZH-HAN) which were excluded from receiving the last Preview Alpha update (1704.170328-2321), will receive this update (the underlying issue has been resolved).


• If your console is in Instant-On mode and you have been selected to receive the update, it will download and install the update and reboot to standby.

• NOTE: Once the update is available to you, you can manually begin the update by launching the Guide and navigating to All Settings > System > Updates.

• If you have been selected to receive the update and your console hasn’t downloaded and installed the update by 1:00 AM PDT 4/5/2017, you will be prompted to do so at that time.


OS version released: rs2_release_xbox_1704.170330-1900

Available: 6:00PM PDT 4/3 (1:00AM GMT 4/4)


• Language Settings

Fixed an issue which could cause Home to crash when the console is configured to certain locales (JA-JP, ZH-HK, ZH-TW, JA, ZH-SG, ZH-HAN).


• 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.
