You can add, remove or change the order of these blocks to suit your own personal requirements. For more on what's been added, head over to Xbox Wire for the full, exhaustive list of new content and features.

If you wanted some honest explanation for the absence at large of Japanese releases on Xbox One, the CEO of NIS America is ready to give you one. In the previous version, sometimes it was hard to find what you were looking for but now with the blocks, you can select content, games or apps whichever you want. Moreover, Microsoft has rearranged the Dashboard so that players can easily switch between the different sections. The screen is dimmed more effectively to combat screenburn, and the new Community feed provides a place to catch up on all the things your friends are up to.

Along with that, you are also blessed with in-game goodies such as new banners, stained glass, fireworks, armor stands, recipe books and host options as well. Blocks can be assigned to specific games, store pages, friends and more, giving you a bunch of information at a glance.

A new "Friends in games" flyout also lets you see who's playing the same game as you, while game invites show up in the Multiplayer tab of the Guide. With Halo Wars 2 bringing cross-play between Xbox One and PC players, this might be an opportune time for Microsoft to test the functionality and better its implementation.

Each Xbox update brings improvements and new features to the Xbox One's operating system.
