A new video released by Microsoft highlights the Xbox One's dashboard, voice navigation capabilities and how users can switch between apps and games.
The video demonstrates how a user can turn the console on, run applications, record gameplay and call up menus using voice commands. It also offers a look at how players can switch between applications and games. For instance, the user is shown joining a Titanfall match whilst watching a movie, then calling up the TV application mid-game.
As highlighted during a TGS 2013 demo, the majority of Xbox One's main menu will consist of five icons displaying the last five games and applications used on the console. According to Albert Penello of Xbox One's planning team, the console's dashboard layout is an example of how Microsoft looked at Xbox 360 users' habits when designing the Xbox One's interface.
Xbox One users will be able to record the last five minutes of gameplay, and make edits and share the clips using voice commands. While users will be able to share gameplay clips via Xbox Live at launch, the ability to upload gameplay capture clips to social media sites won't be available until 2014.
