Microsoft has announced a redesigned dashboard for Xbox Insiders in Alphascape-Ed and AlphaRing. The latest version addresses feedback collected during Microsoft’s months-long experimentation with the home screen, such as space issues with the new dashboard variant and excessive UI layout.

Here’s what the revised variant will offer this week to those testing early Xbox updates:

  • Easier navigation with better access to Microsoft Store, Xbox Game Pass, Search and Settings. All those options are now available at the top of the home screen.
  • A decluttered dashboard layout with more emphasis and space for your backgrounds. Some tiles are now smaller, while others have moved to the bottom of the Microsoft screen.
  • A new responsive art feature will change the background of your dashboard to display the beautiful art associated with each game.
  • The “My Games & Apps” tile can now tell you if an app or game needs your attention.

Microsoft adds that the announced changes do not represent the final experience, so Xbox Insiders can expect more tweaks and optimizations before the public rollout. You can learn more about the latest dashboard changes in the Xbox Insider program. In a blog post on the official website.
