Report a problem/Feedback Hub FAQ

When is the best time to use the Report a problem feature?

Immediately after a problem or unexpected behavior occurs. This ensures the diagnostic data you send us is relevant to the problem.

Can I review the video capture or screenshot I’ll be sending with my problem?

Yes, before you submit your problem, you’ll be able to preview your video capture or screenshot. If you decide not to send either media, just clear the checkboxes and they won’t be included in your report.

I selected “Include video capture,” but I don’t see a video. Why not?

Video capture is available only for problems reported with games.

Can I use something other than my controller to type the description and title for the problem?

Yes, you can use:

However, use Report a problem to report problems or unexpected behavior encountered on the console, as that will help us investigate the problems much faster.

Will I be contacted about problems I’ve reported?

Ideally, we’d follow up with you individually, but because of the amount of feedback we receive, this isn’t always possible. If we have any additional questions about your feedback, we’ll reach out to you via Xbox Live message or on the Xbox Insider Subreddit.

The problem I reported still isn’t fixed. When will it be fixed?

We try to fix all problems in a timely manner, but there are inevitably some problems that require a greater level of investigation and investment. If you reported a problem in a previous update and it’s not resolved in the subsequent update, be sure to use Report a problem again and let us know the problem’s still occurring. Be sure to include all the relevant details that we’ve outlined above.
