A complete overhaul of the Xbox One dashboard is releasing worldwide this fall.
The look and layout of the dashboard is completely new and Microsoft has unveiled some of the changes:
- There will be a new Community section that features an upgraded Activity Feed and Trending on Xbox Live section. It is possible to browse and explore the most popular topics on Xbox Live.
- There will also be a new Watch section that will be available in select regions. All movie and TV apps will be in one place including Netflix, Hulu Plus, and HBO GO.
- The OneGuide is going to be updated based on feedback from users. It will be faster and the full screen mode will show more channels at once. There will also be picture-in-picture while browsing the guide.
- The Store is getting updated as well, so it should be easier to find games. There will be four areas in the store - Games, Movies and TV, Apps, and Music.
The Xbox One is also getting a Chatpad that will attach to the bottom of the Xbox One controller. It will work on the Xbox One, as well as Windows 10.
A new feature that will be available on the Xbox One only will allow two buttons to be programmed. It will give the user access to features like Game DVR, screenshots, or apps.
The Xbox Chatpad will be released on November 3rd for $34.99.
