Xbox One's New Dashboard is a Big Improvement

Xbox One's New Dashboard is a Big Improvement

Have up to 40 pins!

Games can be added to home, which turns them into blocks (not just pins).

Aspects like Friend Activities, Leaderboards, and group messages are going to show up at the top of the Home Screen.

New "Friends in games" flyout informs you of friends playing the same game.

Nothing is more exciting than updating your Xbox and using a new dashboard. OLED TV players will be glad to know that Microsoft is working on the screen-dimming feature to avoid the much despised screen ghosting.

The newly redesigned Game Hub Welcome tab now features a summary of all the great content around the game on one page.

Japanese developers have taken note of this and spoken out on why consumers don't see very many Japanese games on Xbox.

The new Xbox One update also upgraded the notification system. With Halo Wars 2 bringing cross-play between Xbox One and PC players, this might be an opportune time for Microsoft to test the functionality and better its implementation. And, if you don't have an external HDD handy, you'll be able to do it via a network transfer when you have both machines connected.

This week's Xbox One sale will be available until Tuesday, Oct. 24, 6 a.m. EDT. Do you find this feature useful? This enables players to get into touch with the official and community tournaments that they have already joined. Once you start a Broadcast, a new flyout will appear that includes your profile stats. You can now also choose between different themes for the Dashboard. The Xbox One S is capable of streaming in 4K, and the included HDMI cable does support 4K, so if you are looking for a gaming console and something to stream 4K content, this is definitely a good one to pick up - the PlayStation 4 Pro does also do 4K.

So, how do you get access to the latest, and possibly greatest, Xbox software update?

You can also change your console language to select right-to-left languages - Arabic & Hebrew - in the Xbox Settings menu.

Microsoft has rolled out this year's Xbox One Fall Update, providing gamers with more ways of customizing their console.
