Select participants in the Xbox Insider programme will notice some fairly large changes to their Xbox One’s home screen. The latest update makes tweaks to the appearance of several menus, easily surfaces features players are likely to use, and allows for more customisation.
“This update is all about personalization; we’re putting the control in your hands, so that you can decide what to see when you turn on your console,” wrote corporate vice president Mike Ybarra on the Xbox Wire. “The new look and feel is part of a design system called Microsoft Fluent Design; the look, feel, and movement of the dashboard has been updated to focus on speed, customization and expression—for you. “
The home screen has four new hubs on the dash; the first lets you resume what you’ve just played/watched, the next two surface recommendations based on your activity (friend suggestions, etc.), and the last offers you store deals based on what you’ve been playing.
For the full run-down, and to see the UI in action, check out the video above. The update is slated to go live for all Xbox One users in the coming months.
