Major Nelson (Larry Hryb) announced updates coming to Xbox One for all players in the coming months. For now, Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Ring will be the first people to experience the new improvements. This update is quoted as “all about personalization.”
Customize Your Home:
On you Xbox One Home, you can now add your favorites right to it. Favorite game, favorite friend, favorite anything. Just select one, press the Menu button on your controller, and select “Add to Home.” It creates an entire block of content that can be moved up or down, or that you can completely remove altogether. These blocks will also show Activity Feed post from the developer, show when your friends are playing the game in that block, suggest your next Achievement, and provided a shortcut to the Game Hub for that title.
Effortless Guide Navigation:
There more changes made to the Guide, which is horizontal instead of the current vertical setup. This makes it easier to use the left thumbstick, d‑pad, or bumpers on the controller. Tabs in the new Guide include, Sign-in, Achievements, multiplayer (including parties, Looking for Group, and tournaments), People, Home and recent messages, broadcasts and captures, and a new action center (including settings).
The community section also got a revamp. Players can now see more content “at-a-glance.” When looking at a feed in detail, they get a full screen view. Comment windows are also expanded to full screen view. Game Hubs, Profiles, and Clubs are also refreshed, making it more interesting overall.
Windows 10 Game Bar:
Windows 10 also got a some improvements due to the Xbox update. Their Game Bar now has a direct switch that allows to enable or disable Game Mode on a per-game basis. Mixer broadcasting will now have more options; along with settings option to choose to broadcast game-only audio, or system-wide audio. Also, a new Xbox Live Network Troubleshooting option has been added to the Settings menu in Windows 10.
