Microsoft is set to release a new major update for the Xbox One, dubbed as the “New Xbox One Experience (NXOE)” on November 12. Ahead of the official rollout, the company has started giving us a closer look at the new features and improvements that are getting delivered with the NXOE. Today, the company published two new videos giving us a closer look at OneGuide and Avatars.
First up, is the new Avatars app — which is pretty much like the Xbox Avatars app on Windows 10. Microsoft states:
Of course, the core Avatar experience on your Xbox One is exactly what you’d expect. You can create an Avatar, change his or her look and clothing style, and browse all of the items you’ve already earned or purchased. If you choose, your new and awesome Avatar will show up in multiple locations across the New Xbox One Experience, including your Profile, your Activity Feed, the Compare Achievements section in Game Hubs, and more.
Here’s a video of the Avatars app:
Moving on to the OneGuide app, things get really exciting on the NXOE. Microsoft has fully revamped OneGuide and improve most of the features. Microsoft states:
Xbox One is also getting a totally revamped OneGuide. With the rapidly expanding selection of video content from apps on Xbox, OneGuide makes it easier than ever to find something to watch, quickly. The new and improved OneGuide gets you to all of the content that you own and have access to watch via apps while providing access to featured and recommended content that you may not already know about.
Both the Xbox Avatars app and the new OneGuide on the NXOE is looking pretty sweet. As we have previously stated, the NXOE is coming to Xbox One owners next week. Until then, tell us what you think of the new OneGuide and Avatars app in the NXOE in the comment section below!
