Xbox One Alpha Insiders are getting a new 'Entertainment' twist on the Dashboard
Xbox One Insiders on the Alpha ring might notice a small change to their Dashboard later today. Specifically, Microsoft has announced (opens in new tab) a new "Entertainment" twist will start showing up for Alpha Insiders in between the "Community" and "Store" options later today.
If that sounds a little familiar, it should: that spot on the Dashboard is currently occupied by the OneGuide twist, which performs the exact same media aggregating functions. It's a small change, but it raises the question of what will happen to the OneGuide branding. Is it being retired entirely, or will it remain in some capacity?
In any case, Microsoft is asking Alpha Insiders to test the new tab and report any feedback. A new 1706 build may also be on its way later today, according to Xbox's Brad Rossetti. If the Entertainment twist doesn't show up right away, you may need to hard reset your console, Microsoft cautions.

No point in tweaking it. Every single update since the Xbox One launch has made it worse instead of better.
Only salvation now is starting from scratch. The new Fluent Design would present a good opportunity to do that.
