Xbox One

I have been invited to get the latest update to xbox, and after installing it I kind of like it. Specially the new side menu and home screen.
Anyone else that has it and what do you think of it?

I have it, I like it. Seems a little slow, but if you ever think this is slow, go fire your Xbox 360 back up. Then go get a sandwich and some coffee because it's going to take awhile.

Can you buy games with the MS$ from your wallet for Win10 games, I've been looking to get a Win10 PC? Might change my mind if I can't use the $ in my wallet.
Yeah in some sections it's slower but I'm others faster. And atm you can't snap a app either, not what o have seen atleast. But I rarely use that anyway. But I do love the new achievement tracker that we have gotten. Let's see what the next few updates will bring to the insider update

There have been loads of threads in the official insider forums regarding this, but I know it will come back since if you check the video on Major Nelsons website regarding the update. There they show twitch snapped on the side

They're supposedly replacing the Snap with something else.

There is new app called File Explorer and you can use it on USB devices that you have connected to the xbox. But only those that aren't used for games. And it's part of the dashboard.

So the only thing I used snapped regularly was for achievements, there is now an overlay you can pick where on the screen you want it displayed. It is pretty useful even though it only shows 3 achievements. So if there is one you are tracking and keep opening the guide to see how you are doing, you can favorite it (so it goes to top) then put it in the overlay. I put mine in the middle right side and there ya go.

I used to use the Snap to watch Netflix or Hulu while playing a 360 game (really, while grinding achievements), but the streaming services have been phasing out snap functionality. ;(
