The next generation of Xbox Live made its debut with the Xbox One. Confirmed features include an expanded Friends List of over 1000 players — up from the Xbox 360's 100. Xbox Live will be compatible across the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, including support for cross-generation chat. Existing subscriptions will carry forward, and will be usable on both systems.

The new controller is similar to the design of the Xbox 360 controller with some slight alterations. The controller features area specific rumble feedback at the triggers (one motor per side), in addition to the two "normal" rumble motors as used in the 360's controller.

The D-pad has been changed to the cross designed as Nintendo's patent has expired in 2005.

The two face buttons on the Xbox One (back and start on the Xbox 360) are functioned as view and menu.


The Xbox One originally came bundled with version 2 of the Kinect sensor. The sensor features a 1080p camera, a time-of-flight depth camera, and an array of microphones. Originally, the new Kinect had to be connected to the Xbox One at all times for the console to function. It was later revealed by Marc Whitten that the system would work without the Kinect, but certain features would be disabled (such as turning off your TV), as the TV integrations would not work without the Kinect's infrared interface. The Xbox One S, a mid-cycle upgrade for the Xbox One, launched on August 2nd, 2016 and has a built-in infrared interface, bringing the TV functionality back to the console without requiring the Kinect.

The Kinect sensor motors have been removed and the field of view increased to detect users 3 feet away from the sensor. The increased tracking resolution allows the sensor to detect your heartbeat, facial expressions, fingers, weight on joints, and movement speed.

On June 9, 2014, a cheaper Xbox One version was introduced, which does not include the Kinect.

To use the Kinect sensor on either the Xbox One S or X models requires an additionally purchased adapter. The reason being is the proprietary Kinect port was removed on the back of the Xbox One S and X models to save on space and price as the console becomes smaller.


Heavily media based, the new Dashboard includes features such as Snap screen (though this feature is being removed in 2017), existing voice commands and new gestures based on the Kinect. A "trending" feature is in place to allow users to see the most popular content in use by other users, and to allow for more tailor-made media and gaming consumption. A Pin system, similar in look and feel to Microsoft's Windows operating system, was added to allow users to select games or apps to appear on the home dashboard for quick access.
