Microsoft is looking into reports of the Xbox Guide button lagging behind when used by players.
Right below, you can see a tweet from Eden Marie, Engineering Lead at Xbox, which was published yesterday, Jan. The engineering lead acknowledges that there have been cases of Xbox Guides reporting buttons lagging when used by Xbox Insiders, and so Marie encourages affected users. To immediately file a bug report for Xbox for further investigation.
Xbox Insider, if you notice a slow response to the Guide button, please file a bug immediately using the Guide -> Guide Performance category. We’ve added more logging to try and see what’s going on.5 January 2022
However, it is not guaranteed that the situation around the Xbox Guide button will be resolved immediately. While Xbox is officially asking users to report bugs for investigation, it’s always worth remembering that only people around the world are returning to work, including those dealing with bugs on Xbox console software. Huh.
Nonetheless, this is a positive sign that Xbox is acknowledging the problem, and is actively investigating it. If you’re unfamiliar with the Xbox Insider Initiative, it’s a program that allows some Xbox owners to preview upcoming content and software updates ahead of time, before they’re officially released to all Xbox owners around the world. Go live for a later date.
While we’re seeing specific members deal with bugs, we’ve seen previews of several features on the Xbox Insider Program over the past year. Last April, for example, Xbox Insiders sampled a feature that notified users which games were currently ready to pick up where they were last played via the Quick Resume feature. before it rolls out to all Xbox console users later in the year.
