New Xbox Home UI from Microsoft looks significantly better with more room for backgrounds

The Xbox Home UI has been reworked by Microsoft to make it easier to access key parts of the Xbox dashboard and better accommodate background images. Last month, the software giant halted a test of an upcoming Xbox Home UI to rework it, and the outcome appears to be a significant improvement for Xbox owners.

The new Xbox Home UI moves the tiles of apps and games down further, so there’s significantly more space to see a background. Additionally, the tile sizes have been reduced, and there is now responsive game art that changes the background when you hover over particular apps and games.

A brand-new floating user interface can be found at the top, providing quick access to the settings, search, game, and app library, Microsoft Store, and Xbox Game Pass. You can quickly access your entire game library without even having to go into the usual parts of the Xbox dashboard thanks to this quick access menu.

Microsoft is testing this new Xbox Home UI with Alpha Skip-Ahead and Alpha Xbox Insider testing rings this week, and it will probably carry this out to Xbox consoles in the coming months. “We designed hundreds of options, then refined with prototypes and finally user-tested in our Research labs until we found one we hope you’ll love,” says Ivy Krislov, senior product manager lead for Xbox experiences. “It balances the experience, accessibility, function, and the needs of our community.”
