Xbox Live is getting a new look.


														
							

Microsoft is rolling out a redesigned homepage for Xbox Live that gives users more control over what they see. It follows “Microsoft Fluent Design,” a new company-wide design approach Microsoft announced at Build in May that follows principles based on five core tenets: light, depth, motion, material, and scale.

“This update is all about personalization; we’re putting the control in your hands, so that you can decide what to see when you turn on your console,” Xbox exec Mike Ybarra wrote in a blog post.

With the new design, the new Xbox Live homepage can be customized with a variety of “content blocks” that let users easily launch games or apps. Xbox will show you related information based on those content blocks — for example, “adding a game to your Home screen may pull in an Activity Feed post from the developer, show when your friends are playing that game online, suggest your next Achievement, and provide a quick shortcut to the Game Hub for that title.”
