The new Xbox One dashboard ditches Kinect gestures
You can forget about using Kinect gestures to navigate the new Xbox One user interface.
There will be no more swiping left or right to move between tiles, because not enough people use the feature, apparently.
Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra confirmed as much in an interview with Windows Central.
“On gestures, when we looked at the New Xbox One Experience we wanted to prioritize features that customers were asking for, plus areas of improvement from the existing Xbox One UI,” he said.
