Talking Point: Almost A Year On, What Do You Think Of The Current Xbox Dashboard?

It was all the way back in September of 2022 that Team Xbox first unveiled a new dashboard interface that would be tested by Insiders over the next year, with the intention of incorporating feedback into the final, public version.

The feedback was mixed to say the least, with concerns around backgrounds being obscured, adverts taking up too much space, and a general feeling of crowdedness. As promised, that feedback was taken into account for the final version which arrived in July of 2023, but although it was an improvement, it still didn't receive unanimous praise.

At the time, we polled the Pure Xbox community on their thoughts about the new dashboard, with the majority of votes suggesting that it was "moving in the right direction, but needs changes". Some actually said they preferred the old dashboard, but plenty of others actually said they thought it was a huge improvement.

Clearly there were some varied thoughts about the new design back then, but now that we've had almost a year with this UI (with a few adjustments thrown in along the way), we're very keen to find out what you think about the Xbox dashboard as it stands right now. What are your likes and dislikes about it? Tell us in the poll and comments below.
