As revealed back at E3, Windows 10 will be making its way to the Xbox One in a few months and Microsoft gave us a look at the kind of additions and changes we can look forward to at Gamescom 2015 earlier today. For starters, the console will have an entirely new dashboard that’s powered by Windows 10 and will bring a bunch of performance and speed-focused improvements. One of the more notable additions will be the integration of Cortana, which will require users to have a Kinect hooked up to their Xbox One in order to work.
Xbox opened gamescom 2015 with highlights that will make the greatest lineup in Xbox history even better – including updates to the redesigned user experience coming this fall, more details on the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller, and the unveiling of the new Xbox Chatpad. Both the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller and the Xbox Chatpad are available to pre-order today and will be released in November. As we announced at E3, gaming will get even better on Xbox One with a completely redesigned user experience launching globally this fall. The update will make it faster to get to your content and complete must-have tasks on Xbox One. It will also be easier than ever to find the games you love on Xbox One. Among the new features available this fall is the new Community section we revealed at E3 that makes it easier to discover what your friends and others have been up to on Xbox. This section includes an upgraded Activity Feed and Trending on Xbox Live, a new area which allows you to interact with the most popular content, games, and people on Xbox Live. You can explore top posts, browse popular topics and view the game hubs of the most-played games, helping you more easily discover the top content within the Xbox Live community. You can also find interesting content creators and friend suggestions.
