First Look at Next Major Xbox System Update

First Look at Next Major Xbox System Update

To celebrate Spotify coming to Xbox One Major Nelson himself has curated a playlist - mostly containing tracks from games such as Minecraft, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Portal, Mass Effect, and Skyrim among others.

Regardless, Spotify's here to stay on Xbox and while that probably doesn't spell the end of the console cold war, it's one step on the path of reconciliation.

In March, Microsoft baked some new features into the Xbox One dashboard, and now again, the company is making changes to the user interface. The controller now works quicker for the user when it comes to switching sections.

All this and more is available on the latest Xbox update released to Insiders yesterday.

Further, Ybarra said that fans have long asked about customizable features, and therefore, the new updates will give fans just that, notes Thurrott. For example, adding a game to your Home screen may pull in an Activity Feed post from the developer, show when your friends are playing that game online, suggest your next Achievement, and provide a quick shortcut to the Game Hub for that title. Users will also be able to customize the contents of the Community tab through filters.

Along with that, the Game Bar will receive other updates. Spotify and Xbox One are both known quantities, so this is largely a case of "two great tastes taste great together (finally)". The new app drops on Tuesday, Aug. 8, in 34 markets around the world.

The video at the top of the page details all of the changes and you can find the Xbox One Preview Update details/notes on the following page, as well as a look at how the "light" theme looks on the Xbox for Windows 10 app!
