Xbox is getting a new Dashboard

Xbox Insider update focuses on customizing home screen and getting to content quicker

The issue with making the Xbox Live profile as 'Home' on a particular Xbox One was that it was limited to just 3 activation per year. "Today, Spotify is coming to Windows 10 PCs and Xbox".

This update centers on getting to content quicker.

Notably missing in the Xbox One app compared to other Spotify versions is the ability to download music for offline playback, music videos, and full-screen visuals. Take listening to the next level with Spotify.

Fluent means that almost everything has changed. Given that Spotify has been on PlayStation 4 since 2015, it's about time that Xbox One users enjoy their favorite music while gaming. Sony sources reported that Spotify was an "exclusive partner" of the PlayStation gaming consoles.

"Microsoft also says it is 'modernising' the Community section of the Dashboard, which is now 'laid out for mass consumption". For other titles like racing, adventure and survival, cross platform play is much easier to implement. Groove can be accessed from the store or with a Groove Music Pass subscription.

It'll allow gamers to see what their friends are up to, what developers are posting and easily browse to DVR clips. Sign-in, achievements, parties / LFG, friends, Home, messages, broadcasts, and a new action center (with settings) now form part of the updated guide.

Traditional pins aren't going away, however. According to Microsoft, the changes were made specifically in response to user feedback to make the Xbox dashboard more, "fun, personalized, and social".

The Xbox Guide has also been tweaked to ensure speedy response times.

It will be interesting to see how well the Xbox One X does when it launches in November. Today, Alpha Ring users on console are being greeted with a new update including the long requested customizable Home feature. After all the features that top on XboxOne, there is Spotify which was left out.

I have been personally affected by this method when I moved to the Xbox One Slim. It's all down to personal preference. The folks responsible for the Xbox dashboard are a restless bunch.
