Xbox Game Pass is replacing Entertainment tab on the Xbox One dashboard today

A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft started testing with select Xbox Insiders a new Xbox Games Pass on the Xbox One Dashboard. The new tab replaced the “Entertainment” tab, which used to showcase content from Microsoft Movies & TV, Netflix, Spotify and other entertainment apps, and you may remember that this Entertainment tab previously replaced the “OneGuide” tab last year.

Well, after receiving “overwhelmingly positive feedback” from Xbox Insiders, the new Xbox Games Pass tab is rolling out to all Xbox One users today. “This new tab makes Xbox Game Pass even more discoverable to new members and will help our current members check out what’s new every time they turn on their console,” the blog post reads on Xbox Wire. “It also up-levels popular titles in the catalog, highlights newly-added games, spotlights the latest deals on games and DLC for members, and recommends games based on your interests so that you can easily find your next favorite game.”

Xbox Games Pass content was already accessible from the Microsoft Store and the “My Games and Apps” section, and some users may not be happy to be another “ad” for Microsoft’s game streaming service. For those of you who will miss the Entertainment tab, Microsoft says you’ll still be able to find entertainment content in the Store tab, Apps Category tab and Microsoft Movies & TV app. “These will continue to showcase the latest and greatest in trending and popular movies, TV and music across our Microsoft service, as well as our many 3P Partners,” Microsoft said.
