As huge of a fan as I am of both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, I spend more time with the former. There are many factors for that, but one is that I just choose the PS5's UI to that of the Xbox Series X. The user interface on the PS5 is far from perfect, but I spend less time browsing the house screen and more time playing when I turn on my PlayStation. Thankfully, Microsoft has actually fixed the problem with this week's Xbox Home update.

" Starting today, a new Home experience is rolling out to all Xbox Series X [and S] and Xbox One consoles," composed Xbox's Ivy Krislov in an article. "This upgrade is designed from player feedback and makes it much easier to discover brand-new games, rediscover video games you currently love, get in touch with neighborhoods, and produce a more customized experience."

As you can see in the screenshot above, the Xbox's Home UI now features a long row of little, rounded video game icons in the middle of the screen. Let's take a glance at the PS5 house screen to see if we can find any similarities in between the two:


Moving on, one way that Microsoft has in fact surpassed the PS5's UI is by putting a fast gain access to menu at the top of the screen that can take you to your Library, the Microsoft Store, Xbox Game Pass, Search, and Settings with a single tap.

Microsoft mentions that the brand-new UI likewise produces more area for your customized background to shine through, gives you the alternative to alter your background to match the picked video game, presents lists of curated video games for each user, adds an improved Friends & Community Updates row, and features a separate list for home entertainment apps.

The new Xbox Home experience is presently rolling out to "a subset of all Xbox consoles," so you might not see it right now. Everybody with an Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One should move to the brand-new Home UI within the next few weeks.
