For several months, Microsoft will carry out tests around the interface of its Xboxes to improve its operation thanks to user feedback.
The first tests will arrive this week from certain Insiders.
While Sony has once again updated the interface of its PlayStation 5, Microsoft does not intend to be left behind for its consoles. The firm has just unveiled not an update, but its plans for the future of the UI of its Xbox Series X|S.
There is no question of deploying changes directly. The firm prefers to start by dribbling changes to certain Insiders in the circle Alpha Skip-Ahead to collect feedback. In a second step, a better experience refined by this collaboration will be deployed to all.
The general public will therefore have to wait until 2023, when some users ready to get their hands dirty (and randomly selected) will be able to see the changes in preview. Microsoft invites everyone to be patient and provide feedback so that the final experience is the best it can be.
