Its been a long time since the Xbox 360 dashboard received any update because it really doesn’t really required but after watching the same thing for a long time we get bored so there are a lot of gamer waiting for something new. So for those news from Microsoft is that it is releasing a new dashboard update with new features and with more apps.
New Features Added In The Update
- Includes Internet Explorer for Xbox
- Xbox Music app including genre search and the extension of voice search for the YouTube app.
- Re sized font
- More tiles added to the screen, which means you can see more content on a single page.
But still then apart from all these changes the overall look of the Xbox 360 dashboard remains same. It still has the same Metro-like tile UI. However, one of the most-welcomed new features in the update is the ability to “pin” your favorite apps, TV shows, music or websites right to the Xbox 360′s home screen.
Internet Explorer is probably the biggest new feature besides Xbox Music. The new browser is based off of IE9, but is designed with a TV screen in mind, so text and windows are larger than the desktop version. Obviously, typing still sucks if you don’t have a chatpad for your Microsoft Xbox 360 controller, but that’s not uncommon. The dashboard update will be slowly rolling out today for all Xbox 360 users and will coincide with the release of Xbox Music.
