The Xbox One will soon see quite an improvement to the entire dashboard UI. Along with an updated look, it will be faster, sleeker, and more user friendly. You will be able to access all your most used features with lightning speed, including friends, messages, and achievements. You’ll be able to do all of this without ever leaving your game, seeing as how these apps now overlay on top of your game screen, instead of snapping it to the side and making it smaller.
Even better, is the addition of Cortana.
Ask her to do any number of tasks, all without ever taking your hands off the game.
Want to know if someone is online? What about inviting friends to a party?
Just ask Cortana and she’ll take care of it for you!
