Microsoft renovates Xbox Live dashboard

Tiles R us

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Microsoft has officially announced a significant overhaul of the Xbox Live dashboard, introducing a host of new content as well as voice control and gesture features for the Kinect peripheral.

Xbox Live Dashboard

The update, which adopts the tile-like design of Windows 8, tables cloud-storage functions for save games and profiles, Facebook sharing and "enhanced family settings". There's much deeper Kinect integration too, with the anticipated introduction of gesture and voice control.

Then there are additional customised apps for television, internet, sports and music and just as expected, services such as BBC iPlayer, 4oD and LoveFilm have been added to the roster.

The new Xbox Live dashboard will roll out on 6 December. ®
