Team Xbox is always looking for ways to improve your gaming experience, getting gamers what they want, games. We’re focused on making it faster and easier to play the games you love and find your next favorite game. And as Xbox Insiders, you play a vital role in helping us build the right experience for everyone.
We know the Xbox homepage is where our gamers spend a lot of their 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.
Starting this week, a random subset of Xbox Insiders in the Alpha Skip-Ahead ring will see some layout, design, and ease of access changes as we experiment with different approaches. In addition, we are also exploring options for new game channels and collections when you scroll down that include content that’s curated for you based on things like the games you’ve played or how to make the most out of your Game Pass subscription.
Key updates in this first round of preview updates:
- The new “Jump back in” row gives you quick access to your most recently played games and apps.
- Easily access important system apps like Settings, Store, Search and My Games & Apps with their own dedicated tiles on Xbox Home.
- Consistent design and visual identifiers with updated layouts to keep the experience familiar.
- When you scroll down, you’ll see curated categories and recommendations tailored to your gaming preferences.
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. Please share your feedback and be patient as we add, remove, and change features to optimize the experience.
