Xbox One Preview Program Members Can Use New Version Of Dashboard
The update was unveiled earlier this week.
Members of the Xbox One preview program now have access to the newest update to the consoles dashboard. This new update has a number of changes, none of which are huge but plenty that will change the way the dashboard looks. Among the biggest changes to come in this update is the ability to actually moved pinned content around. This will allow users to have their favorite games front and center, even if they’re dealing with the 1TB console that will allow them to have a ton of games on the dashboard at the same time.
Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra announced the new dashboard was officially live for the Preview Program and once again detailed how the pins can be moved. “Highlight a pinned item and hit Y, or press Menu, then select Move,” he said. There are other features those who now have access to the new dashboard can try out, like the ability to hide games that are listed in the “ready to download” section. Considering these games can be ones that people have deleted and don’t want to see anymore, it would appear this feature will be able to clean up the look of the dash.
This new update was unveiled, with the feature of moving the pins earlier in the week on Twitter by Major Nelson. At the time, he didn’t say exactly how long it would take to get the feature to the masses. The fact that it’s already out on the Preview program, could mean it will be coming to the Xbox One dashboard sooner rather than later.
