These are the changes coming to the Xbox One interface soon


Microsoft isn’t slowing down on its promise to deliver monthly updates to Xbox One

The team in Richmond has cooked up an extra set of feature updates called the Creators Update that will offer a new look for the home screen, improvements to Cortana and accessibility updates that’s going to greatly improve the Xbox experience for gamers with special needs. 

The update is rolling out first to members in Microsoft’s Insider program starting this month, and then to the larger Xbox One community sometime down the road.

Spearheading the update are the changes to the Xbox One home screen. This area saw some major improvements when Microsoft switched over to the New Xbox Experience (NXE) last year, and will now offer better access to the games and apps section, as well as to Twitch and Game DVR.

According to the Xbox Wire, the changes were made to reduce complexity and require less button presses to get where you want to go. Specifically that will mean smaller game icons and more room for the title’s Game hub page. You’ll also be able to quickly reach a game’s Looking for Group section. 

Press the center jewel and Microsoft says that Insider members will be greeted to “a faster and more intuitive guide”. The guide will open with your recent games and apps, a set of controls for background music and any pins you use.
Here’s a video that walks you through all the changes.
