Microsoft recently announced a couple of new updates to Windows 10 and Xbox One, including refreshed functionality for its console’s Guide UI. Specifically, the new Xbox One Guide is being designed to streamline certain common tasks on the console, minimising the number of instances where players are forced to return to the Xbox One’s homepage.
Now, a mere four days after Microsoft’s blog post reveal, the new Xbox Guide has been spotted out in the wild – appearing for a single second (at around the 10-minute mark) in a livestream hosted by Mike Ybarra, Microsoft’s head of Xbox platform. If you don’t fancy digging through that though, you can also glimpse the updated overlay at the top of this page.
This new version of the Guide can be summoned into existence via a single press of the Xbox One controller’s home button, and incorporates both new and commonly-used-but-formerly-harder-to-access features; you can, for instance, now easily access video capture options through the overlay, plus previously played games.
