  • The Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles share an interface with a large button on the dashboard dedicated to bundling your digital games.
  • The Xbox Insider Program allows Xbox users to try out upcoming versions of the Dashboard and other apps.
  • The latest build of the Xbox Insider Program has made some improvements to the games and apps library and added a tabbed interface that separates content by source.

The Xbox dashboard has seen some interesting updates lately, perhaps most notably the inclusion of Discord as part of the Xbox Insider Program. This latest Xbox Insider Alpha Ring build has made some notable changes to the Games & Apps section, where you normally browse all of your installed content and available games to download.

The new UI overhauls the “Full Library” section of the dashboard, which was admittedly a bit cluttered in the previous incarnation. Now it has a fast UI with tabs and horizontal labels for different content pools, separating “My Games” that you bought directly from Libraries Xbox Game Pass or EA Play.

Each tab section has a theme with specific features for that content pool. For example, the full My Games list doesn’t necessarily need to show the “Recent Additions” or “Leaving Soon” filters, which is exactly what the Xbox Game Pass tab has instead. You still get the regular filters, with the ability to resize the tiles to fit more content into a single screen.
