Microsoft is preparing to launch the “biggest update in the history of Xbox One”, by introducing a completely redesigned user interface. In posting on Xbox Wire yesterday, the company says the new “experience” as it is being called, will be based on Windows 10, using the speed of the system as the main focus and players will be able to access certain features up to 50% faster according to Microsoft.
It will be possible to create groups of instant form, see what friends are playing and updates on games without any waiting time.
The launch of the new interface also marks the beginning of long-awaited console backward compatibility function that will allow you to run games on Xbox 360 without additional cost. Beginning more than 100 games will be compatible with the new feature and other hundreds should arrive in the next few months. The interface will include a new option called “Community” where you can easily see what friends are doing, check out the latest news from your favorite games and stay on top of what is on the rise in the Xbox world.
The OneGuide is also being refurbished, showing list of featured shows on TV and new social options, all instantly and in full screen. The Xbox Store also receives new developments that make it easy to find the desired content. Microsoft has not given an exact date when this new update will come to the Preview Program members.
