Major Nelson has long been the spokesman for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One and in that role he’s shown off his fair share of new features. That was the case earlier this week when the man, who’s real name is Larry Hyrb, showed off what he called a “future Xbox One system update.” Hyrb showed off the feature on Twitter and it turns out that sooner or later users will be able to move their pinned items around the dashboard.

The use for this particular feature is rather obvious, as it will mean you can actually bring the games and applications that you like the most and use to the most to the front of the line. It’s kind of surprising that such a feature hasn’t been available for the Xbox One for quite a while. It’s certainly a feature that will be well received, even if it’s not exactly a game changer.

Showing off that you’ll be able to move your pins around was actually just a way to herald a bunch of the new changes that are going to be coming with the next Xbox One system update. Hyrb said on Twitter that the company hoped this update was going to be able to roll out in the next few weeks. Among the other features that will allow users to have more control over what they see on their dashboard is the ability to hide games that are “ready to install.” Among games that have this status might be titles the users has uninstalled, such as game demos and they have no interest in being reminded the game demo even exists. Hopefully this new update will come during or before the planned Xbox One and Windows 10 event in February.
