    Microsoft has been working on bringing Windows 10 to the Xbox One to address customer feedback about fans wanting the console to be faster. Mike Ybarra, Program Director for the Platform team, revealed the performance details in a recent podcast with Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb, which emphasizes changes to UI and speed. Their development team has been using spreadsheets to compare the speed and responsiveness of the update, and it will be 50% faster than it is now while doing certain functions. The team claims that customer feedback and fan suggestions have been a huge guiding process for them, and they plan to make it so you can interact with other players and access the UI in a seamlessly, which was a heavily requested feature.


    There is an exclusive preview program that they plan to extend over time, and it will give players in the preview program full access to the update and what it entails. The team also claims that it will be easier to communicate patch announcements and casting votes for features.

    Accompanying the addition of Windows 10, Xbox One will also be receiving Xbox 360 game playback with support for over 100 games, with more to follow after launch.

    Update Sept/16: The first wave of invites to the preview program have gone out today! Major Nelson has stressed that there will be more opportunities and an expansion to the program later on so if you did not get an invite this time, you will still have a chance in the future.

    Is there any info on when the preview program gets it? I read that it would be in September but we are halfway through September and there has been no other news.

      Listening to the podcast, the only thing I heard them say about that is it would start out small and be expanded over time. I don't recall them mentioning a start date for the preview program but I'll keep my eyes and ears open and let you know when that information is released.

      Scare Croe sorry for the lateness but the preview program invites went out yesterday. Major Nelson stressed that there would be plenty more chances to be in the program in the future if you didn't get an invite this time.

    Looks cool, but I will not be installing Windows 10 again so most features are useless I assume.

    Hopefully the update will deliver the speed they are currently announcing... though, can't wait to try out that Windows 10 game streaming feature to play on my computer as well.

    Xbox one has always been very slow for me. Hopefully this update will increase speeds.
