Visual improvements include more readable text and on-screen elements like tile shapes, fonts and so on being easier to understand. Though the layout of console pages is familiar, Microsoft describes them as being “faster and more focused.” Some other quality of life features include updates and game clips from one console being to the Xbox app on mobile, allowing them to share it online. Notifications on PC, mobiles and console are also being consolidated.
