Microsoft’s new Xbox One dashboard now available

Microsoft is rolling out its new Xbox One dashboard design to all consoles this week. The new design focuses on overhauling the home page of the Xbox One dashboard, with frequently used games and apps available immediately. The new Home design also includes the ability to add or remove rows to customize it further, and quick access to Xbox Game Pass, Mixer, and the Microsoft Store.

Xbox One Home gets a new look
Xbox One Home has been redesigned to feel more responsive, keep your favourite content front and centre, and get you into gaming experiences faster than ever. Featuring dedicated rows for Xbox Game Pass, Mixer, Xbox Community and the Microsoft Store, the new Home also includes added flexibility to add or remove rows for a customised experience.

Updates for your games & apps library
With the February update, we’re giving you more ways to organise your stuff. Content grouping makes it faster to find and launch what you want, while new icons on game trials and demos make them easier to distinguish from full games. What’s more, we’ve put top games & apps settings right in your library to simplify updates, remote installations and more.

Image support in conversations
Images and animated GIFs sent from the Xbox mobile app (iOS or Android) or the new Xbox (Beta) App for Windows 10 PC can now be viewed in messaging conversations on your Xbox One console. Images can be opened in full screen, and you’re able to control the content shown in your message safety settings.

Xbox Game Pass: View and install individual bundled games
Xbox Game Pass members now get extra control over what to install from bundled games such as Shenmue I & II. Our new chooser lets you pick which game to download and launch first.

Preferred location for notifications
Now you can decide where you want notifications to appear on your screen. Go to Settings > Preferences > Notifications and select Default notification position to choose from six locations on your screen. (You can move them out of the way if they block something in a game or app.) Be aware that certain games may change this location based on the gameplay experience.

Even more Mixer viewing improvements
Thanks to your feedback, we’ve made a number of improvements to your Mixer viewing experience on Xbox One:
We’ve given you the option to switch your chat mode to “classic chat”, which displays chat messages in their own dedicated space beside the stream video.

Now you can manually select the video resolution you want to use to watch content, based on your preference.
See more information about streamers you’re interested in, browse their VODs and clips to watch, and host their channel on your own, making it easier to support your favourite streamers and keep up with all their content.

Storage management suggestions
When you run out of space on your Xbox One, it makes space-freeing suggestions by showing you which games, apps and other content is taking up the most room on your hard drive. With this update, we’re introducing a “Move” option for people with external storage attached to their console, giving you the choice to move items to external storage or remove them completely to free up space.

The new Xbox One dashboard update is available immediately, and consoles will receive the 10.0.18363.9135 update automatically.
