First lets start with the user interface updates, and in particular the new Guide. However, if you have the itch to get your hands on the creation and gaming-focused Windows 10 Creators Update, then you can manually download it on April 5. It has redesigned the layout of the home screen to show more content at once while emphasising community material such as screenshots and activity updates. Even Beam's test version allowed users to modify popular video games such as Minecraft with the help of a software development kit, notes Fortune.
Meanwhile, the Guide is also placed as an overlay on the left side of the screen. This new option is available for all the console players.
New features make it easier to access to the clubs, and message to gamehub.
Microsoft purchased Beam to integrate its own streaming service into the Xbox One and Windows 10 and it is now ready for everyone.
Microsoft is making an effort to ensure the update process allows for more customization options on the user end. The company is releasing a new update for the OneNote app to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring. Now, recently-used games or apps will not be spread over half of the screen.
The new Xbox One update further improves the cluttered overlays as well. Multitasking has been overhauled and the Xbox's old dual-app Snap view removed.
Multitasking is also getting a facelift and you'll be able to add an achievement tracker overlay while playing your game, and Cortana also appears as an overlay as well. You can keep playing while Cortana responds to your command. Copilot mode lets two controllers be combined as one which could be useful for gamers who aren't able to play with the regular configuration. More so, another change seems to be the quicker guide.
Of course, Microsoft isn't going to stop at bringing Beam to Xbox One.
Aside from the Boom dashboard, the Xbox One will also get new tweaks to its basic features. And tabs won't sync across devices.
However for those eager to jump the queue and get their hands on the new software early may be in luck, thanks to a new announcement from Microsoft.
Next up will be, well, up to Microsoft - based on the feedback the company receives from this first phase of rollout to those shiny, new devices.
Xbox One has just received one of its biggest updates since it launched back in 2013.
