Last month, Xbox announced that it was starting to make changes to the console dashboard — or Xbox Home page — for folks in the Xbox Insider program. Since then, we've seen the dash in action ahead of its wider release in 2023. Well before we get to the full release, the team has already begun making more changes to the preview version.
In this new build, users can add 'top groups' to the home screen, to access their chosen games and apps faster and easier. This looks more like the current dashboard setup, where collections of games, and indeed individual game pages, can be pinned to the dashboard.
In the new version, these pins are mixed in more liberally with Xbox's new "discovery content", which includes things like latest Xbox Game Pass additions and top free games. Here's a look at the new preview build in action:
A few other small changes have also been made to the Xbox home screen with this update, which you can check out over at the official Xbox website. Remember, Microsoft is making this a collaborative process, and the team wants plenty of feedback before it introduces the new dashboard to all Xbox users in 2023.
Is this a good change to the preview dashboard? Let us know your thoughts on it down below.
