To navigate between these tabs, simply use the left thumbstick or press "LB" and "RB" on your controller. Sign-in, achievements, parties / LFG, friends, Home, messages, broadcasts, and a new action center (with settings) now form part of the updated guide.
Talking to GameSpot during the ongoing Brazil Game Show, Spencer was asked if it ever crossed their minds that they might have "pushed too far ahead" with the making and release of the Xbox One X. Microsoft has been battling poor performance on the Guide for the last couple of updates, and this update should fix most of those performance issues.
Along with that, you are also blessed with in-game goodies such as new banners, stained glass, fireworks, armor stands, recipe books and host options as well.
Microsoft has also included a new light theme with this new dashboard. Whether it's about bringing up the Guide during active gameplay, seeing what your friends are up to, or receiving invites to the new Tournament section, expect all of these to be snappier than before.
The Guide has changed significantly as well and works in an overlay flyout format which works rather well when on your Home screen or in a game or app.
Upon opening the Guide, players will now be greeted by a "Home" tab, which houses shortcuts to your most recently played titles, alongside "My Games & Apps", Pins and the Microsoft Store.
Profiles now enable faster access to recent activity. Microsoft already has this kind of technology for desktops, and you'd think it would be fairly simple to implement on Xbox One. You can now transfer games quicker from your internal hard drive to an external, or copy games from a home network to another console.
Crazy Justice will be coming to the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and PC, and is expected to be released by Q2 2018. If you were a fan of the Xbox 360 style of UI, then this brings back some of those lighter elements.
Bulk transfer will allow you to select and transfer as many games as you want all at once.
Transfer your games to an external drive so you can connect it to your new console and play immediately. From here, you can start and manage broadcasts, access advanced recording options and configure a webcam for use with Mixer.
