The new Xbox One experience is rolling out now for owners of the console, with the big update being backwards compatibility. You can read the full list of the titles in the article here, and for a limited time Xbox One owners can play the multiplayer of backwards compatible games without a Gold subscription. On top of that the Home menu on the Xbox One has been revamped too, making it easier to share achievements and clips, as well as seeing what games your friends are playing.
There’s a new overlay guide as well which can be accessed by pressing the left button on the d-pad in the home menu, or double pressing the Xbox button while in game. This overlay lets you access your friend’s list, profile, settings, view messages, notifications, snap applications and also the ability to start a party. A Community section has also been put in that has a Trending part that lets you see popular posts on the Xbox One. OneGuide puts all the TV and movie features together under one area, making it easier to navigate between the various entertainment apps.
The Store has also been revamped and as dedicated sections for games, movies & TV, apps, and music. Categories under these headers include top rated items, staff picks, coming soon, and recommended. Avatars are also now available on Xbox One, as well as the ability to remap buttons. There are game hubs too, a narrator to read text on screen, a magnifier to zoom in on items, and a high contrast display setting.
