Microsoft today announced that the Xbox One will get the Windows 10 upgrade on November 12th. And here’s a look at some of what you can expect.

Microsoft today announced that the Xbox One will get the Windows 10 upgrade on November 12th. There are currently users who are testing out the new features via the Preview program, and it’s all coming together next month.

Windows 10 Coming to Xbox One

If you’re currently using Xbox One, you’re probably not too happy with the lag time when switching between apps or settings using the dashboard. This new upgrade promises to provide faster performance, an improved gaming experience, vertical scrolling instead of horizontal (which takes longer to get to items), and expanded social features.

Also, in what is arguably the biggest update: you’ll be able to play Xbox 360 games! This will be accomplished using the Hyper-V virtualization technology that’s built into Windows 10.

At first, the number of 360 games will be limited at first, though. Microsoft says: “Now you can play a growing number of your Xbox 360 games on Xbox One at no additional cost. With over 100 titles slated for this fall, and hundreds more in the months to come…”

Something else that’s interesting is that all 360 games you get for free with the Games with Gold subscription will be compatible, too.

Other improvements will be a new guide for notifications, friends, and messages, and optimized store, and much more.

Microsoft is taking another step in the right direction and getting Windows 10 on virtually every device including PCs, tablets, Xbox One, Windows Phone, tablets, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

For a quick look at what the new Xbox One experience will be like, check out the video below.
