Xbox Dashboard Adding New 'Friends & Community Updates' Section

Xbox has pulled back the curtain on a new feature for the "New Xbox Home Experience" - the name for the new UI being tested by various Xbox Insiders. It's called the Friends & Community Updates channel, and it begins rolling out today.

Basically, this new channel is a way to "bring together all the top things from your activity feed".

Here's what the Xbox team has to say about it:

"You will be able to see achievements, game clips, screenshots and text posts from your friends, official clubs, or games that you follow. To see everything in your activity feed, click into the “Friends & Community Updates”. You may also see “Got something to share?” to share your gaming moments or “Clubs on Xbox” to discover more on Official Clubs."

If you're interested in checking this new feature out, you'll need to already be part of the Alpha or Alpha Skip-Ahead rings in the Xbox Insider program, although everyone will be getting access to it eventually. The Xbox team says that more updates and builds will be rolled out over time as well.
