Xbox One Update: an entirely new user experience

Xbox One Update- an entirely new user experience

Good news for all the Xbox lovers! Microsoft announced a new Xbox One update that will launch this fall. It’s going to be a brand new user experience that will make gaming even better. This update is based on the feedback given by Xbox fans. Xbox said the following: “We’ve released more than 130 new features on Xbox One since launch and our update coming this fall will be our biggest one yet’’. As it is the biggest update yet, we have very high expectations! While we wait, let’s take a look at some of the biggest changes.

  1. Your redesigned Home

First of all: Home is redesigned. The main section of Home will be the same, but there are a couple of new options. The new update allows you to scroll vertically to see your recently played games with more information about those games. You also have quick access to DVR clips, achievements and add-ons for your games.

  1. Your new guide

Thanks to the new update you have direct access to the guide without leaving your game. This means that, when you are in the middle of a quest or chapter, you can easily switch to your notifications, messages, settings, snaps, friends and parties. Once you’ve finished checking everything, you can easily go back

  1. Stay in touch

Through your guide you can go to the Friends section. You will have access to the Activity and What’s Trending feed. These allow you to easily stay in touch with your friends and game developers. Next to that, you will be up to date about the latest improvements.

  1. Your personal gaming assistant: Cortana

Cortana is your personal gaming assistant on the Xbox One. She works across all Windows 10 devices and gets smarter over time. When you give Cortana all the information she needs (like your location or apps), she can assist you wherever you are. Are you scared to forget about something? Or do you want to reply to your friends as soon as possible? Say it Cortana and she will help you out. She also helps elevating your game. Prompt her to find new challengers, friends, games and she will!

The members of the Xbox One Preview Program are lucky, because some of them already have access to the new update. How about you guys, do some of you already have access to this new update? If so, let us now what you think!

The rest of us will have to wait until November. When it’s that time, the update will be free to download. In the meantime you can still play and buy new games. Of course it’s also possible to play online with your friends. Therefore you go to and buy an Xbox Live membership!
