XBOX One Dashboard

During the XBOX One preview event that Microsoft held weeks prior to e3, one of the most talked about features was the new XBOX One Dashboard. The dashboard demo clearly explains why Microsoft decided to call their latest next-gen console the XBOX One. With the new dashboard and it’s integration with Kinect, the XBOX One can act as you one central hub for your home entertainment system. The XBOX One can integrate with your paid television provider, play DVDs and Blu-ray movies, play XBOX One games, surf the Internet, Skype and much more.

Switching between whatever you are doing on the XBOX One is extremely simple and blazing fast. With the Kinect everything can be spoken to the XBOX for instant switching. If playing a game, and someone wants to watch a movie, the game will pause where you left it when you command the XBOX to switch to a movie. When switching back to the game, you are exactly where you left off, with no reloading anything into memory. One of the coolest voice features of the XBOX One dashboard is the ability to search for programming using your voice. As the XBOX One integrates with your television provider, it can search the guide for whatever you’re looking for. If you know you want to watch a specific channel, you can tell the XBOX this as well.

Chatting with friends on your television has never been easier with Kinect and the XBOX One. Utilizing Skype, people can now easily communicate and see one another off of computer monitors and on today’s large screen televisions and projectors. The webcam has come a long way over the years in bringing people closer, but no longer will we need to be tied to a laptop or desktop computer. The XBOX One will help bring friends and families into our living rooms with Kinect and Skype.

Taking from some of Microsoft’s Windows technology, the XBOX One dashboard also utilizes Snap Mode, which allows for multitasking on the XBOX One. With Snap Mode, different applications can be pinned to different areas of the television screen. This will allow users of the console to utilize applications with playing a game, or surf the internet while watching a movie. Picture in Picture just got taken to a whole new level with the XBOX One dashboard.

Check out the video below for some of the content from the XBOX One reveal event that shows how amazing the new XBOX One dashboard truly is.
