Impressions of the upcoming Xbox One Fall UI update straight from a behind closed doors meeting at E3 2015. Going over the new vertical scroll design and redone snap mechanic.
So excited, glad I'm in preview!
Cant wait to start using Cortana.
Me neither being able to set up a party without leaving a game will be so useful for those Warzone matches in Halo 5 :P
I've ready to give it a try. Definitely an improvement.
Any rumors on when preview members get a hold of this?
How do you get to be in the revew.
Send me ur gamer tag and I'll invite you
R3forg3worg3n ty dude. Try with out cap first then without pls.
So basically you told us what we already know minus you telling people that snap goes over the game. Which is actually incorrect, the quick menu does, snap will still shrink the screen and stay static, just now on the left hand side.
From what I understand and what they had shown is that the quick menu is the snapping feature. Just over laying on the left hand side. They went through messages/party/notifications and everything though we didn't get to see them "snap an app". This is of course all the information I was given while at the meeting.
Looks a lot better! And thankfully so! The ui as it stands just sucks so the change is very welcome!!
Microsoft always make big UI changes, this new one looks much better cannot wait to try it.
Looks a lot similar to that of Ps4 than before
No it doesn't. In what way does it look similar to that long scroll bar of the PS4?
umm. it's minimalistic, with emphasis on the foreground image..... ?
Actually it does. They just flipped it and made it vertical with the quick menu icons on the left instead of the top. They took the best of the ps4 ui and the xbox one ui and combined them and made it better imo.
Faster UI is always welcomed.. MS kings of software !
honestly i don't know if i like it just yet. and pins should be at the top, not the bottom. thats why we pin things in the first place. for quick access.
Loving what I see, especially in terms of speed and that snapping no longer reduces the main picture size. However, I do hate that shortcuts are demoted the to the bottom of the vertical scroll!?! pins are suppose to be right there, for fast easy access. Otherwise why have them?
Sony need to step up their UI Update game!!!
So can i put a 360 disc on my xb1 ???
Only 22 titles at the moment will emulate on Xbox One. Over 100 planned by Fall 2015, you'll need to be preview at the moment though
I wish I was in the preview program. This update, to me at least, really improves the UI.
