Xbox One Dashboard Uncovered

Posted by Mike Zatorski

Finally, some more details.

Larry Hyrb (Major Nelson) has posted a new video with Yusuf Mehdi (VP of Marketing and Strategy, Microsoft) and Marc Whitten (Chief Product Officer, Microsoft) showing off the new dashboard and just how easy, or so it seems to be, to use. You can view the 12 minute video below:

In short, they show off voice and facial recognition and seamless switching between apps, games and TV without any delay. They do a nice demonstration of the new Game DVR and Upload Studio functions which seems like it will be a winner. You can run multiple applications while playing a game or watching a movie as well, which we knew about already, to an extent.

They also do a Skype call, and detail how Kinect functions with it. Kinect automatically tracks you no matter where you are and also zooms and pans out automatically. Finally, they cover the new Guide feature to use with your cable provider and also cover the SmartGlass functionality. It's quite an interesting demo, so take a look and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Very cool. This looks much better than I had ever expected. The fast app-switching seems to work really well and I absolutely love the idea of suspending games without exiting out of them.
