Microsoft Xbox Home Experience

Back in May, Microsoft started testing the new Home experience for all Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles. After testing it with gamers over the past few months, Microsoft is now rolling out this new Home experience to all Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles. Over the coming weeks, all users will have this new experience. This new Home experience makes it easier to discover new games, rediscover games you already love, connect with communities, and create a more personalized experience.

  • Adds an option to change your background to match the game you are highlighting in the recently played list.
  • Improves game discovery by introducing lists of games curated and personalized for you.
  • Allows you to customize your experience by pinning your favorite games, curated groups, and system groups like Quick Resume to Home.
  • Helps you find what’s going on in your community through the updated Friends & Community Updates row.
  • Shows you what media apps and content are available to you via a Watch & Listen spotlight and list of entertainment apps
