Microsoft also aimed to make the Guide easier to use with horizontal tabs that can be navigated via the bumpers or the left thumb stick. With the new software, you can copy all your games and settings to an external hard disk.

Starting with the new ability to connect to vast community servers with other players moreover, if you ever thought of leaving the game from one device and again wanted to start from the same place, on another device, now you're able to do that with this update. This is something the community has asked for during Microsoft's Xbox Insider testing periods. You can see the full changelog here, and download the update now.

Have up to 40 pins! In the Multiplayer tab of the Guide, you will find game invites from friends as well as a Tournaments section for official and community tournaments. Guide will also be contextually aware, so if you are in an active party or broadcast, Guide opens right to the party or broadcast sections for quicker access to the controls for those sections.

The Guide has changed significantly as well and works in an overlay flyout format which works rather well when on your Home screen or in a game or app.

Although a minor change, this provides quick access to menu options during timely activities. Just unplug the drive from your current console, plug it in to your new one, and you're ready to go.

Microsoft has been gradually improving its Xbox One dashboard to make the experience a lot faster to use.

Existing Xbox One owners can back up their games and console settings to an external drive so that they're ready to be applied to the new console during setup. With the blocks, you can select what content-games or apps-show up where you want them to. As one of the biggest changes to the console's operating system since release, the update focuses on delivering a fresh new look, speeding up everyday activities and laying the foundations for the upcoming Xbox One X console.

One of the main reasons for this update is in preparation for the Xbox One X launch on November 7.

Crazy Justice, a cel-shaded third-person-shooter from developer Black Riddles, will be the second game to offer cross-play between Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

Xbox One will also let you use a USB webcam to broadcast yourself in Mixer, their online broadcasting service, and if you're into using Skype on your Xbox, you can use the webcam for that as well.
