Xbox One fireplace

If you fire up your Xbox One right about now you should be seeing an icon on the dashboard to turn your console into a roaring fireplace for the festive season. Or a snowy forest. Or a beach front with rippling water. Microsoft has added the trio of ambient themes to the console for you to use at your leisure. Or if you don't have a real fireplace.

It's not the first and only place Microsoft has done this either. The Bing homepage can also be turned into a flickering fire to brighten up your seasonal searching.

Happy holidays!
