Notoriously, many users across the internet hold some resentment towards Xbox. For one, the home dashboard for its consoles since leaving Xbox 360 has been on the top of its lists – and can you really blame the stack of complaints? While Microsoft did iterate on the dashboard, it can still be better. The Xbox firm was even late supporting 4K for the home menu as it was patched in nearly a year after release of Xbox Series X|S.
Additionally, Microsoft did address it plans to further improve the dashboard again. One of the biggest complaints is the little amount of room for the background is shown. And for Xbox Insiders in the past, the work-in-progress only made it worse as more ads took the dashboard over. But, it was told that it plans to dramatically reduce this for users come the full release across all systems.
On Wednesday, Microsoft rolled out the official update for the new Xbox dashboard. Along with it comes new organization & personalization features for users to make this new upgrade more of their own.
Starting today, a new Home experience is rolling out to all Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles. This update is designed from player feedback and makes it easier to discover new games, rediscover games you already love, connect with communities, and create a more personalized experience.Ivy Krislov, Xbox Experiences Senior Product Manager Lead
“Improving the Home Experience has been truly a Team Xbox effort —from engineers to designers to researchers and many more. We started by investing in infrastructure that would allow us to try different layouts of the page with different content for different situations and customers,” the post continues reading.
“We then evaluated many different elements of the design process including what people interact with in the experience, how easy it is for people to complete the action they want to take, and how satisfied they are with the overall experience. Once we had a version that was ready to share, we started to roll it out to our Xbox Insiders.”
Recently, Microsoft confirmed a new update will be rolling out for Xbox Insiders enabling the option to record audio in-game which can be submitted and used to report players. There is no word on when the feature will be fully released to all users. You can read the full report by heading here.
