Xbox One gets major update, quicker dashboard

There is only one setting you can control as of now- pointer speed.

The new Xbox One update is now rolling out and basically gets you read for Xbox One X, letting you transfer your games and get 4K stuff ahead of launch.

There's also more choice when it comes to the colour scheme of the user interface, offering new light and high-contrast options alongside the dark colour scheme utilised by the company until now.

Microsoft has released the Xbox #One Fall #Update on October 16 with cool new features.

The Mixer tab now has previews so you can see more before joining. Just unplug the drive from your current console, plug it in to your new one, and you're ready to go.

If you're purchasing an Xbox One X when the thing lands on 7th November, then the Fall Update is mainly for you. Pins - the ability to add tiles of games and apps to your homepage - have been around for a long time, but I've never bothered to use them until now. In the previous version, sometimes it was hard to find what you were looking for but now with the blocks, you can select content, games or apps whichever you want. This enables players to get into touch with the official and community tournaments that they have already joined.

Broadcasts at 1080p will now happen automatically if your network can support it.

The main thing you will notice immediately is the design change to the main dashboard. Still, as he correctly says, "it's a chicken and egg problem", meaning that Japanese companies don't find an audience on Xbox, but in order to attract one there needs to be Japanese titles coming for it. The Xbox One S is capable of streaming in 4K, and the included HDMI cable does support 4K, so if you are looking for a gaming console and something to stream 4K content, this is definitely a good one to pick up - the PlayStation 4 Pro does also do 4K.

You can also change your console language to select right-to-left languages - Arabic & Hebrew - in the Xbox Settings menu.

This was released after a lot of testing from the insider team. Xbox One console owners can now personalize their #Home Screen better with new options.
