Xbox One to get a Light Mode, coming soon to Preview builds

Michael Cottuli

Remember in the later days of the Xbox 360, when Microsoft introduced that white interface for the home menu? People like me who have some nostalgia for that experience are going to be happy with the new update for the Xbox One. In a talk about the Xbox One X during Gamescom, it was let loose that the new interface for the Xbox One X will be introducing a brand new Light Mode.

Just like you might expect, the Light Mode is going to be giving you the exact same experience as the normal interface, with the prime exception being that everything is white. Whether you like the look of white better than the default or just want to be a hipster, there’s no doubt that there’s an audience for this feature. You can expect to see this feature soon in an Xbox Insider preview build.
