Recently, Microsoft launched the Summer Update for their latest console, the Xbox One. The update was very well received since it contained a bunch of useful updates. Among these is Background Music support for many apps such as Pandora, support for Cortana, a better interface for the Game Collection and many others. Perhaps the most useful addition is the merged Xbox Store and Windows Store, making it easier to search and download new apps.
Microsoft has been working hard on the newest features of the console. Mike Ybarra, who works at Microsoft, released a teaser about a very interesting feature that will come to the Gamerscore Leaderboard. With the new addition, you will be able to see the leaderboard for a certain month. Mike Ybarra exemplified this by showing the leaderboard for last month, July 2016.
Many people objected this was not such a major update and that it’s rather useless. Indeed, it’s not such a major update, but it could be interesting to those competitive gamers who want to see who the best in the game was. It is not yet official when this feature will be available to the public but it is expected to be released for the Preview program soon, with Microsoft including it in a future update later on.
Many people are complaining about the hard-to-use interface of the Xbox and recommended a better UI. Fans compared it to the PlayStation interface which is easier to use and has a cleaner design. However, it remains to be seen whether Microsoft will do something about it with upcoming updates or if they will stick to the classic Windows look they have already implemented in the Xbox One.
