While Microsoft is testing the new Xbox Series homepage for the consoles, they have started testing the new layout with certain Xbox Insiders. The new dashboard for Xbox Series is scheduled to release next year in March.
Microsoft announced the test through Xbox wire, speaking about it. Ivy Krislov, Senior Product Manager Lead, says that random Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Skip-Ahead ring will see these changes. The new Xbox Series dashboard will get layout, design and ease of access changes. Additionally, Xbox is exploring options for new game channels and collections.
For the first round of previews, the key changes are:
- The new “Jump back in” row gives you quick access to your most recently played games and apps.
- Easily access important system apps like Settings, Store, Search and My Games & Apps with their dedicated tiles on Xbox Home.
- Consistent design and visual identifiers with updated layouts to keep the experience familiar.
- When you scroll down, you’ll see curated categories and recommendations tailored to your gaming preferences.
Xbox urges the insiders testing the new dashboard to share their feedback and be patient as they add, remove and change features to optimize the experience.
