Microsoft Again Updates Xbox Dashboard UI as Series X Launch Comes Close

Microsoft is launching further updates to its Xbox One dashboard, just months ahead of the Xbox Series X launch. The software developer is now improving the Guide part of the Xbox One dashboard, which provides fast access to content, mates, and even settings when one taps the Xbox button on a controller. A new default order now means you navigate by the tabs in a left-to-proper order and even fully customize how they’re ordered.

Microsoft Again Updates Xbox Dashboard UI as Series X Launch Comes Close

Party, messaging, and invitations are all combined into a new “Parties & chats” tab, while settings, audio, and power options have now been shifted to the “Profile & system” tab, which is displayed as Xbox gamerpic. App and system notifications are grouped under a bell icon with other Xbox alerts, and the common people tab now consists of searching for group choices.

The Guide now seems like it has a more structured and simplified interface than before. Simplification is something Microsoft has been working toward this year because it approaches the Xbox Series X launch. While the software titan hasn’t confirmed precisely what the software will appear to be on the Xbox Series X, Microsoft did tease that the Guide and dashboard look identical to the Xbox One throughout recent reveal videos.

Microsoft lately tweaked its Xbox One dashboard with a brand new residence display screen that higher organizes content material and gives extra customization choices. The Xbox One dashboard has undergone quite a few modifications in recent times, together with a Fluent Design replace again in 2017, a huge redesign in 2015, and tweaks that centered on pace.
