Get ready for another revamp.

Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are on the horizon (and less than a month away!), but the Xbox One is getting another UI update.

Microsoft has previously promised a unified UI across Xbox One, the new Series S and X consoles, and the Xbox app on PC.

As per a tweet from Harrison Hoffman, Product Manager at Xbox:

In an accompanying blog post, Microsoft revealed the tweaks made.

"We debuted the new Xbox UX look and feel back in August, and it’s been a big hit with our Xbox Insiders. Now, all Xbox products across your devices – console, mobile and PC – share the same visual style and design, making them feel more familiar and easier to use," it says.

"From Home to Guide, My Games & Apps, and even Settings, all parts of the UX have been improved. The new design includes changes to our tile shape, fonts, and focus indicator across the experience. The overall layout of most of the pages will not be drastically different, ensuring the new UI remains familiar and easy to navigate."

There are also new Profile Themes to help customise your Gamertag, with more to come.

Microsoft also notes that users should "stay tuned for more".

The console has had a whole host of revisions in this console generation, but hopefully Microsoft sticks to this one for a bit.
