The Xbox Two podcast is an informal show all about the week's news in Xbox and the games industry in general, and we just crossed our twentieth episode. Ybarra graciously offered to jump into the show and answer some of our questions on the Xbox dashboard, which has been updated with Fluent Design Elements for Xbox Insiders on the Alpha Ring.
During the 90-minute long show with myself and Mr. Rand al Thor (with a million gamerscore), Mike Ybarra talked to us about the new dashboard, the Home screen, the future of "Content Blocks," feedback over Suggested Friends, and more.

The show with Ybarra lasted for almost 90 minutes, and a huge range of topics was discussed. Be sure to have a listen to the full show right here.
Big shout out to Ybarra who simply jumped on to take questions from fans and address the feedback over the dash, which has been a little mixed thus far. Mike really slammed home the idea that these are simply the early stages of a long journey towards refinement for the Fluent Design System on Xbox One, and in November, the Xbox One X.
