We’ve heard your feedback, and we’re happy to announce the following fixes have been implemented for this 2004 build:

Known Issues for Alpha Skip Ahead
We understand some issues have been listed in previous Xbox Insider Release Notes. These issues aren’t being ignored, but it will take Xbox engineers more time to find a solution. We appreciate your patience at this time!
- Users who have Dolby Atmos enabled and console display settings set to 120hz with 36 bits per pixel (12-bit) are experiencing loss of Dolby Atmos audio in some situations.
- Workaround: Disable 120hz or set Video Fidelity to 30 bits per pixel (10-bit) or lower.

- Note: This is an issue with the Dolby Access app and the app developers are aware and investigating.
My Games & Apps

- Note: This app will be used to experiment with a new Events experience to showcase in-game events. We’ll have more to share when the feature is ready for Preview.
- Some users may see a different Store icon on the dashboard than what normally appears.
- Some users may see their content blocks reset randomly during the experiment.
- Some users are reporting issues making in-game purchases in Fortnite.
- Workaround: Reboot the console and then attempt to make the purchase. If you still see the behavior, make sure and report it from the console.
