Xbox has revamped the Games & Apps library with a new interface


What you need to know

  • The Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles share an interface, with a large button on the dashboard for pooling your digital games.
  • The Xbox Insider program allows Xbox users to test upcoming versions of the dashboard and other apps.
  • The latest version of the Xbox Insider program has some refinements to the Games & Apps library, with a tabbed interface that separates content by source.

The Xbox dashboard has been getting some interesting updates lately, most notably perhaps the inclusion of Discord as part of the Xbox Insider program. This latest build from Xbox Insider Alpha Ring has made some notable changes to the Games & Apps section, where you usually go through all your installed content and available games to download.

The new interface refreshes the “Full Library” section of the dashboard, which was admittedly a bit cluttered in the previous version. Now it has a fast interface with horizontally labeled tabs for different content pools, separating “own games” purchased directly from libraries like Xbox Game Pass or EA Play.

Each tab section has a design with specific features for that content pool in mind. For example, the full list of “own games” doesn’t really have to show filters for “recent additions” or “leaving soon,” which is exactly what the Xbox Game Pass tab has. You still get the regular filters as before, with the option to resize the tiles to fit more content on one screen.
