The new Xbox One experience is coming soon. This is a completely new dashboard redesign, and it’s already releasing to preview members.
Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb and Xbox Eningeer Richard Irving sat down to scour over the new dashboard. That’s what you see in the video above, and this is the first time we’ve seen such a vast preview for the new UI.
Things look completely different. The UI looks faster, content is more quickly accessible, navigation is smart and the screen appears to have even more information on it than before.
The new Xbox One UI also features the Guide. The Guide existed on the 360, too, and it let players quickly navigate while in-game. That’s back, and it’s only a double-tap of the Xbox button away. This will bring up an instant glance at things like your friends list, party management and more rather than burying them in the main UI.
The new dashboard doesn’t have a public release date just yet. As that’s announced, we’ll have the news for you.
