In addition to the Home screen customization, the Guide will be "faster than ever" when it comes to switching between tabs thanks to a new layout. Just do not forget to turn off the in-game music.

The app will let you play your saved music, search Spotify's full library of 30 million tracks, and browse "pre-curated gaming playlists" in the Gaming section using your Xbox One controller. For example, games added by the user to the home screen will also pull in content such as an Activity Feed post from its developer, suggested Achievements, and many more. However, for these updates, one will have to wait until the Windows 10 Fall Creators update, which will have an enhanced Game bar and Mixer broadcasting features, plus a new Xbox Live network troubleshooting area.

The streaming app joins Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, Pandora and other apps already available on Xbox One.
