Microsoft Adds New Interface, Beam Streaming and More to Xbox One

Microsoft's next update to its Windows OS is set to be rolled out on April 11. One users can play, pause, change the volume and rewind songs, all from the guide menu. A single press of the Xbox button on the controller brings up the guide, no matter what you're doing. The company has even updated the navigation of the console through a new guide. Microsoft also mentioned that with the update, Edge is safer and a lot more secure. Microsoft announced that players will not be required to download any other app to enjoy the service, as Beam comes built into the Xbox One. During the Beam launch announcement for Xbox One, however, Microsoft did not mention this particular feature.

You may use a service like Adguard or Windows ISO Downloader for that once they are published by Microsoft. These not only lend a new lease of life to the hardware, it also helps to augment the capability of the hardware to boot.

Microsoft's next generation of Windows 10 is set to bring a wide range of new features and improvements when it rolls out on April 11th.

The new Beam dashboard allows PC players and console players to have a platform to connect with one another.

Brexit: Gibraltar outraged that Spain has veto power over its future
Gibraltarians want to stay British, as demonstrated in 2002 when they rejected a referendum on shared sovereignty with Spain . Despite its small size, Gibraltar is strategically important, standing only 12 miles from the north coast of Africa.

Other big new features include the new Home design, which is designed for improved performance, and which puts content related to the games you're now playing front and center.

Microsoft's goal with the Xbox One's new home screen is to simplify the system's UI and increase the overall performance of the console, according to Microsoft. It would mark the first cumulative update for the RTM build of the Creators Update, but there's just one problem: the firm never actually released an update.

The update is mainly focused on smaller, more art- and entertainment-focused features like a new settings optimization feature called Game Mode for Windows 10 PCs and a new 3D Paint app expected to integrate with Windows Mixed Reality-enabled headsets down the line. Numerous improvements in the new console update were created as direct responses to customer feedback. Installing the operating system update early basically turns you into a human (presumably) guinea pig willing to deal with any unexpected problems.

The series of changes and updates for Xbox One is started rolling out today and the entire players will be able to receive the updates. Head here to download that, so long as you're a member of the Windows Insider Program.
