We’ve brought a few new updates to Preview Alpha this week, and now Preview Beta Insiders are getting the chance to try out a new build (1802.180121-1921). Beta Insiders can expect to receive this update starting at 6 p.m. PST today and can learn more about the Fixes and Known Issues involved below.

- When configuring a Kinect during the initial console set-up experience, the process no longer fails when attempting to tune audio.
- The network transfer no longer fails when initiated from a console on 1802 (this update).
