Xbox One November update detailed, Twitter and custom backgrounds incoming


We may be just getting used to the October Xbox One update but as another month approaches it’s time to start talking about what we will see in the next update. Major Nelson has told fans that they have delivered yet again with what they say the community has been asking for and it seems they have as custom backgrounds and extra details for profiles are set to arrive in the update. Xbox One users will be able to utilise a custom colour or achievement art as their background with the ability to set custom backgrounds arriving with the media update later in the month. Your profile will see some returning fields like location and custom bio’s included as well as the ability to show off your custom game clips and achievements. Speaking of clips, if you love to show off your skills to the world then you will be happy to know that you will be able to easily share them directly to your Twitter account.

The fun doesn’t stop there tho as the Twitter integration has more to offer. The OneGuide will feature trending lists for what other Xbox One users are watching on live tV, what they are tweeting about and what they are watching the most. If you want to see what tweets are going out about a specific show before you get into it you can even have a look in the MiniGuide itself. Internet Explorer has also been updated  and can now switch from full screen to snap mode at the touch of a button on the address bar. Users will also notice a new number icon that will let you know when your “Featured Sites” have an update for you. The SmartGlass app will also been updated with more support to see what’s going on in store and what your friends are playing. We have attached the video below with all the details you need. Let us know what you think.

BeginnersTech was an idea I had one Sunday when I was bored. It is now not only a website but a successful YouTube channel that takes me all over the world. Don’t ever let anyone discourage you. Chase those dreams.
