· Faster, more intuitive Guide – An updated Guide adds new features and functionality such as a new start page designed to display the content you care most about and gives you quick access to media controls when playing Background Music.
· Improvements to multitasking – We’re making improvements to multitasking features such as discoverability and also enabling quick access for features such as screen shots and GameDVR with the push of a button.
