Today, two new features are rolling to all Xbox One owners. A new "Game Pass" tab is available on the home screen which shows you all of the titles available through the subscription service. However, it goes above and beyond because now games are categorized according to their genre. If you're a member, be sure to check it out for the latest additions to the service.

Apart from that, "Official Clubs" are also available for select titles. According to Larry Hryb, Xbox Live's Director of Programming, if you want to stay up to date with your favorite games and developers on Xbox One, then you should join an Official Club. You can easily find them because they have a badge and placement within the "Guide" and menus.

While both of these additions aren't revolutionary features, they do make discovering games easier. Official Clubs have to be the highlight because they easily let you access information from the developer. For example, let's say there's an important patch which fixes a game-breaking bug. Now you can know the minute it's deployed.

Hopefully Microsoft will continue to tweak the Xbox One interface going forward in order to make it even easier to use. Maybe in the future we'll get the ability to completely customize the home page and move certain sections around. What changes would you like to see implemented? Let us know.
