Microsoft is rolling out some new features for Xbox One owners today, headlined by the integration of the Beam streaming platform.

Another feature of the Xbox One update is a new user interface, tell us what the new interface looks like in the comment section below. No matter what you're doing, the new Guide experience puts the features and functionality that you use the most right at your fingertips.

Speed has to be the biggest complaint Xbox One owners expressed to Microsoft in the past and it's encouraging that the company finally address it.
