Microsoft details November’s redesigned, backward compatibility-adding Xbox One update

Pretty slick.

Your Xbox One is going to have a lot of new features soon.

Microsoft detailed on Xbox Wire everything it’s adding to the console via a November system update. Notably, the Xbox One will support backward compatibility with over 100 Xbox 360 games. You’ll be able to use Xbox One features like live-streaming and screenshot-taking while playing the older titles.

The update will also redesign the system’s home screen and interface in an attempt to make it easier for users to find the apps they use the most. The Xbox One will now have a Guide overlay, similar to what the Xbox 360 had, that users can access by double-tapping the Xbox button. Additionally, the update will bring a new Community section to the Xbox One that will let players see what others, including their friends, are up to.

Microsoft says that those in the Xbox One Preview Program will soon receive invitations to test out the new update, starting with those who have submitted the most feedback in the past.
