The picture above was recently spotted on Major Nelson’s Twitch stream by Reddit user mkmkd. The screenshot teases transparent tiles on Xbox One, which we have seen on the Windows Phone 8.1 update.
The tiles give a similar, yet refreshing look to the Xbox One “Metro” UI, which will modify the color of the background image through the tiles, instead of using a separate image primarily for tiles like Windows Phone does. Since the Windows Phone version has been quite popular with users, I can imagine that this will be a widely accepted update with many Xbox users.
What do readers think about this transparent tile design? Leave comments below.
