If you’ve turned on your Xbox One since March 29, you’ve probably noticed that it feels snappier and looks a bit different. That’s thanks to the Xbox One Creators Update, a new version of the console’s software that overhauls the menu system while also adding some features.

But while the Xbox One Creators Update is a net improvement for Microsoft’s game console, it might take some adjustment. Some features have moved, shortcuts have changed, and a couple of features have disappeared.

Pressing the center Xbox button on your controller no longer returns to the home screen. Instead, it brings up a revamped version of the Guide sidebar, where you can quickly access recent and favorite games and apps. Pressing up or down scrolls through other menus, such as achievements, clubs/groups, friends, messages, notifications, Beam streaming, and settings. (Before this update, you could open the Guide by double-tapping the Xbox button, but now a double-tap doesn’t do anything.)

What happened to Snap?

With the Xbox One Creators Update, Microsoft has removed the Snap feature, which would run a second app in a sidebar along the right side of the screen. According to Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra, eliminating Snap makes the system faster, improves multitasking, reduces memory use, and will “free up resources going forward for bigger things.” In other words, the update’s snappier feel owes itself to Snap’s departure.

The demise of Snap means you can no longer monitor achievements in a sidebar while you play. But in place of this feature, Microsoft has added an achievement overlay, which you can position along any edge of the screen with adjustable transparency. To access the overlay, press the Guide button, scroll up to the trophy icon, and set the Achievement tracker to On. A menu will then appear for adjusting the tracker’s appearance.

Guess I better boot mine up today. When I have the time, I have been playing Horizon, Zero Dawn on the PS4, but it is about time that Bear returns to the wasteland for a bit of mayhem and settlement construction. Need my FO4 fix...

I installed the Fall Update yesterday. Boy, it's different from what I'm used to. It will take a little time to organize things so I can find them. Did you download the update yet? What do you think?

Microsoft announces what's in the new Xbox One update, which is rolling out now.

The next big Xbox One update of 2018 is coming soon, and now Microsoft has announced what to expect from it. One of the biggest new features is support for 1440p resolution for games and media. 1440p, also known as 2560x1440, has more than 1.5 million more pixels than 1080p, sitting between 1080p and 4K. Of course, you will need a supported TV to see the benefits.

New Xbox Update Details

The first info for the next Xbox One update came through yesterday, with features like Dolby Vision, new voice integration for Cortana and Alexa-enabled devices, and new details on Xbox Avatars. But in perhaps the biggest bit of news coming to Xbox…

Mouse and Keyboard Support for Xbox

Phil Spencer joined Inside Xbox for a very exciting piece of news: mouse and keyboard support for Xbox One. Soon, developers will be able to build mouse and keyboard support in their games if and how they choose — entirely at their discretion — and Xbox will support them in creating the right experience for their games to ensure an optimal and fair gaming experience. Warframe will be one of the first titles testing mouse and keyboard input when the feature arrives to Insider. We also announced that we’re partnering with Razer, a premiere peripheral manufacturer in the gaming hardware space, to bring you the best possible mouse and keyboard experience for this new functionality. We’ll have more details to share on mouse and keyboard support during our November episode of Inside Xbox.
