Xbox is getting new Home UI Update in 2023
Testing has already started.
Microsoft is apparently tasting whatever’s the Xbox developers have been working on in the past period. There is a new Home UI update that will introduce quality of life improvements, and more. The next major Xbox update is scheduled for 2023, and it’s supposed to include a lot of tweaks to its layout that will provide much more robust navigation.
As revealed by The Verge, the update will focus on making it easier for users to find Xbox Games and Apps. But before it arrives, Microsoft is going to conduct a variety of Xbox Home experiments before the update rolls through in 2023.
“We know the Xbox homepage is where our gamers spend the most time, and it’s a space that’s very personal. We also know we can always be listening and learning how we can do better here while keeping your experience fast and familiar. With that, we’re kicking off a multi-month series of experiments to learn how to create a more personalized home screen experience and address some of the top trends and fan requests.” says Ivy Krislov, senior product manager lead of Xbox experiences.
It’s good to know that Microsoft hasn’t forgotten the player outcries. Xbox users have been wanting such change, with a strong desire for a more sophisticated and approachable home interface with a plethora of customizable features.
“We want to ensure this experience is the best it can be, and we know getting it right will take some time which is why we will be rolling it out slowly and iterating throughout the process. With your input, we’re looking forward to launching this new, better Home experience in 2023.” Krislov further says.
