How to Customize the Xbox One Interface

When Microsoft initially showed off the Xbox One, many users balked at its footprint and cheered its cloud-related gaming features. They also flocked to messages boards and comments to learn about what Microsoft calls the Xbox One Dashboard. The Xbox One Dashboard is the layer of software that users interact with the most. It’s the Xbox Dashboard that opens entertainment apps and games. Many of these users commented on how stark and impersonal the Xbox One Dashboard is. Thankfully there are few software customizations users can enable to make the Xbox One feel more like it’s theirs. Here’s how to customize the Xbox One.

Currently, more customization than PS4, but sadly, not nearly enough for true customization. AT LEAST LET US USE PICTURES IN THE BACKGROUND!

Thats for Sony as well.

never understood the huge desire to customise the home screen... how long do people spend on the home screen that it matters that much?

Its about personalising the experience, could you imagine not being able to personalise your phone?
Not to mention the xb1 dash gets old very quick with that black background.


What? We can personalize phones???

I think the X1's UI is pretty slick. Now on the other hand, the PS4 needs some help. I can say that, cause it's my opinion, and I own both consoles.

Completely agree. I love both my consoles, but I think the ps4's UI is a bit weak.
They BOTH need more customization though!!!

Thats it, colors and pins? Hope they add more features such as backgrounds and themes in the near future. While they are at it how about more options to customize profiles. Unlike the 360 there is no option to add a motto or bio to your profile, adding a little personality to it.

Kinda sucks actually... I purchased some pretty sweet themes for my 360, but unfortunately I can't use them on the X1. You would think a simple picture in the background wouldn't be too difficult for MS to include. Not a deal breaker by any means... but it would be a nice feature.
