Take a peek at Xbox’s next major system update
Microsoft released a video today providing a sneak peek at the next major system update for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. Speed and flexibility seem to be its main focus. The dashboard is getting a new look that includes a horizontal list of recently used apps similar to the PlayStation 4’s. But, the biggest change is to the Home interface. “It’s a complete redesign based on gamer feedback,” says Mike Ybarra, Xbox’s head of Platform Engineering. “We’ve heard for a long time now that gamers really want to customize Home. They want to make it more about them. And so we’ve embraced that in a very big way.” Many of the new features are rolling out to alpha ring Xbox Insiders starting today.
