Xbox One's New Dashboard is a Big Improvement

Updated Xbox Guide

Microsoft's new update brings Minecraft for Xbox, Windows 10, AR and also mobile, which is now consider dead.

It's also good news for Xbox One X owners, because the new update contains a host of new features to make the transition between consoles even faster. The Xbox One has now gone through three iterations of making their dashboard and general UI not feel like its losing a race to a bunch of snails, and the more streamlined third attempt is the best crack at it yet. Those using a controller won't be forced to go up against mouse and keyboard players in competitive shooters, but the option might be there for those who don't mind, as seen in Gears of War 4's separate mixed playlist.

Bulk transfer will allow you to select and transfer as many games as you want all at once. There is only one setting you can control as of now- pointer speed. Once you've added blocks, you can remove or change the order of the blocks as you see fit.

The Guide also has a new Tournaments section in the Multiplayer tab. Microsoft has made this menu faster by removing a lot of the automatic loading that was happening with each menu. Pinned games will show their activity feeds and indicate if you have any friends playing right now. It's a path to getting into more menus, but I'll take it if it means inputs are zippy and responsive.

Jones, who had 79 yards rushing and two receptions for 17 yards, scored a touchdown from scrimmage in his 12th straight game. Eddy Pineiro missed the first extra point of his career in the third quarter and never got a chance to atone for it.

The new Xbox One update also upgraded the notification system. The most powerful console on the market is a big push from Microsoft to reclaim a market that they lost early on in this generation, and only time will tell if it pays off. The update will also let you filter the game library to find just the Enhanced stuff.

Of course, Microsoft wouldn't do all of this without a new light theme for the dashboard. Sections of the new and improved guide include sign-in, achievements, parties / looking for group, friends, home, messages, broadcasts, and the action center. The update provides an easy way for gamers to transfer games to the Xbox One X either via an external drive or via your home network.

The new Xbox One dashboard is now available for all Xbox One and Xbox One S users, with "more great features" coming soon.
