When Microsoft rolled out the new Xbox One dashboard, players lost a lot of room for PINS losing five from showing on screen at once. Now, Xbox One Update Preview Alpha Ring members have started getting a new version which gives more PINS on the Home screen. How many PINS do you get now? Up to 40 PINS can be shown on the Home screen now which is enough for video, streaming and a bunch of games.
With the current Home screen, the game icons are pretty large and had a lower maximum limit on how many PINS you could have compared to the previous Home screen. Now the icons are smaller and up to 40 PINS can be shown on the Home screen now which is enough for video, streaming and a bunch of games.
This is especially beneficial for Xbox One owners who buy a lot of games and buy them digitally like us. It meant juggling what game you wanted to PIN more and unpinning those you would maybe return to one day but never do.
The extra PINS functionality will be heading out to everyone later this year.
