What’s New in the latest update?

The new update changes a lot of the dashboard of Xbox One. The UI changes of the dashboard allow quicker access to frequently used applications/features and improves the overall look of the Xbox dashboard.

The icon of the game that is currently being played is now a lot smaller. Below that, there are buttons that act as a shortcut to other related areas, such as Game Hub or sharing features.

Thanks to the new update, access to the Guide screen is now easier than before. Instead of two presses, you can now access the Guide screen by a single press of the Xbox button. The guide screen makes navigation to different areas such as GameDVR or background music selection a lot easier. The latest Xbox One update also introduces Beam live streaming service.
