The Creator Update from Xbox One is almost here, and it wants to update the players’ experience. While not everybody can tap into the new direction of Xbox One, the new update will be delivered to some of the Xbox Insiders. This is the latest version of the old Preview Program. The players that will be the first to try the new experience will be the top ones that were of great help during the old Preview Program. This means that people who have been actively written feedback for previous updates will be the first served. The Creator Update wants a streamlined gameplay, and this is why the focus is primarily on performance.
The new Xbox One update is one of the most massive ones in its history. It will bring hundreds of new features and improvements for people who play both on the console and on Windows 10 computers. The rest of the users in the Xbox Insiders will receive the upgrade sometime during the upcoming weeks. The fresh experience wants to revolutionize competition, streaming, and performance.
Among changes, the Home Screen was massively redesigned. The new update offers a simpler way to move around the interface. The most beneficial changes are a fewer number of buttons to navigate around the Home Screen and a faster experience. The developers listened to the feedback from Insiders and realized that the old format was a little too complex. Besides increased speed, the main tile of the active game looks different. It comes with a smaller game icon, yet with more options to enjoy Game Hub, Club, and LFG better.
The Guide will no longer need two taps, but one push of the Xbox button to open. Once players do that, they will receive an overlay on the left no matter where they are. The window comes with a new start page from where players can easily get to wherever they want, be it their top Pins or their recently opened games. Players will need one button to access music player, screen shots, and GameDVR.
Other new features regard the digital assistant, Cortana. Players can set up alarms to join important sessions with no clicks. Moreover, the system updates will no longer come up at inappropriate times, but players will be announced in due course whenever one arises. The streamlined gameplay will be possible thanks to an increase of audio quality with new audio settings.
