Which is pretty much the same as the current dashboard found on the Xbox One -- but improved. Arriving this month to all Xbox One systems, the latest UX update for the console is also being touted as the Xbox Series X dashboard.

Billed as the the August Xbox 2020 Update it's one that focuses on improving the current experience whilst also paving the way for new Xbox members in the form of the Xbox Series X (and presumably Xbox Series S).

Which means things will look very familiar when you fire up Microsoft's next-gen consoles this holiday season. And with backwards compatibility that supports current controllers you might need to look next to your TV to get that visual confirmation you're actually playing on a Series X. That is, when browsing your library.

Here's what the update entails... the most notable change being subtle changes to fonts and sizes and the long-awaited ability to adjust the volume for each member in your Xbox Live Party.

Improved Landing Page

The new Guide landing page is designed to be cleaner and easier to read at-a-glance. The layout makes it easier to navigate between the most recent things you were doing, the Dashboard, and My Games and Apps. For those of you who want to customize the Guide, you’ll have the option to change the order of the tabs that show up. We’ve also added buttons to the bottom of the page for important utilities like notifications, search, and audio settings, making it easier to access them from wherever you are.

Connect with your friends

Speaking of notifications, the August update includes a new notifications inbox, easily accessed by clicking the notification bell on the bottom of the Guide. This inbox combines all your alerts, game invites and message notifications into a single feed. Best of all, the inbox includes notifications from across all Xbox apps, including the new Xbox mobile app that we’ll introduce into beta soon. Acting on a notification in one place clears it everywhere, meaning you’ll always be up to date!

Parties and Chats made easy

In June Parties and Chat were combined into a single tab, making it easier to communicate with your friends and fellow gamers. We’ve continued to improve this experience to make it more useful, with the addition of a preview of the text in your new messages. We’ve also added a frequently requested feature – individual volume controls for each party member!

New Activity Feed look

With the new Xbox experience we also set out to rethink how community and game developers’ content is displayed on Xbox. We want the focus to be on the content being shared and highlight the awesome screenshots, videoclips and posts players create. You will notice all posts shared on Xbox are now the same size: no more guessing on how they will show up in the Community or Club pages. We have made improvements in the Game, People and Community Content Blocks on Home, videoclips auto-play, reduction of metadata over posts and display of engagement counts. We have also introduced shortcuts for easier engagement with the post and for easier discovery of players and games the post relates to.
