    Welcome to the first 1710 Preview on Xbox One! We’re excited to release our latest System Update Preview to our Preview Alpha members. This update features some big changes to the way you’ll interact with your console. From the Home page to the Guide, Team Xbox has worked to make your console experience faster and more customizable.
    NOTE: Not all planned features for the 1710 update are available at this time. We’ll update as additional features become available.

    Customize your Home
    The look, feel, and movement of the dashboard has been updated to focus on speed, customization and expression. Now you can customize your Home screen to be uniquely yours and view all the things you love at-a-glance. Have a favorite game or friend? Add them to Home! Select the game or friend of your choice, press the Menu button on your controller, and select “Add to Home.” This creates an entire block of content that can be moved up or down—or removed altogether, should your interests or habits change. These content blocks will evolve over time based on the things you like to do. For example, adding a game to your Home screen may pull in an Activity Feed post from the developer, show you when your friends are playing that game online, suggest your next Achievement, or provide a quick shortcut to the Game Hub for that title.

    Get started personalizing your Home by following the steps in our “Custom Home Page” Quest, and don’t forget to return to the Xbox Insider Hub and provide us with your feedback!

    Effortless Guide Navigation
    With this update, it’s faster than ever to switch between tabs in the Guide so you can join up with friends, broadcast, switch between apps, and get back Home. New tab flyouts make it easier to see more content quickly, too. The new guide layout quickly gets you to the thingsyou care about, so you never miss a moment. It’s now even easier to switch between apps or get back to Home, and the new layout will enable you to quickly jump to different tabs using the left thumbstick, d-pad, or bumpers on your controller. Sign-in, Achievements, multiplayer (including parties, Looking for Group, and tournaments), people, Home and recent, messages, broadcasts and captures, and a new action center (including settings) also each have their own tab in the new guide.

    Complete the “New Guide Experience” Quest and let us know what you think about the speed and organization of the updated Guide.

    Copy and Move Content with Ease
    We've made it significantly easier to copy and transfer games/apps between external hard drives! All you need to do is follow these simple steps: 1. Navigate to Settings > System > Storage 2. Select a connected hard drive 3. Use the "Transfer" option to move content between hard drives.

    Using this feature you can move games and apps one at a time or in bulk using the "Select all" option. But don’t take our word for it: Try it out for yourself by completing the “Transfer Your Games” Quest, and don’t forget to provide feedback on your external hard drive use in the accompanying survey, titled “Hard Drive Use.”

    • “Custom Home Page” Quest – Customize your Home and let us know how it goes.
    • “New Guide Experience” Quest – Use the New Guide to navigate the console and provide Team Xbox with feedback related to the speed and efficiency.
    • “Transfer Your Games” Quest – External hard drive users can test the new transfer options and tell us what they thought of the process.
    • “Hard Drive Use” Survey – Let us know whether you use an external hard drive or if recent updates impact that use.
