Cus­tomize Your Home:

On you Xbox One Home, you can now add your favorites right to it. Favorite game, favorite friend, favorite any­thing. Just select one, press the Menu but­ton on your con­troller, and select “Add to Home.” It cre­ates an entire block of con­tent that can be moved up or down, or that you can com­plete­ly remove alto­geth­er. These blocks will also show Activ­i­ty Feed post from the devel­op­er, show when your friends are play­ing the game in that block, sug­gest your next Achieve­ment, and pro­vid­ed a short­cut to the Game Hub for that title.

Effort­less Guide Nav­i­ga­tion:

There more changes made to the Guide, which is hor­i­zon­tal instead of the cur­rent ver­ti­cal set­up. This makes it eas­i­er to use the left thumb­stick, d‑pad, or bumpers on the con­troller. Tabs in the new Guide include, Sign-in, Achieve­ments, mul­ti­play­er (includ­ing par­ties, Look­ing for Group, and tour­na­ments), Peo­ple, Home and recent mes­sages, broad­casts and cap­tures, and a new action cen­ter (includ­ing set­tings).

Com­ment win­dows are also expand­ed to full screen view. Game Hubs, Pro­files, and Clubs are also refreshed, mak­ing it more inter­est­ing over­all.
