    Question New Dashboard

    With impending new OS and dashboard mere hours away. I have some questions for people that already have the new OS for Xbox1. I've been told there are No Notifications...So if you don't hit the Xbox button on an invite where do you go to get in. Most time I get an invite when I'm in the middle of a hot lap and I never except the on-screen invite. Also multiple people that have the new Dash request you to resend invites after they get a Failed to Join message. Used to you could just got to the Notification section and accept the invite there usually successfully. Just looking to get some insight on this. I hate surprises

    There are notifications and if you don't open it when it pops you can press the home button twice and go to the notifications area of the guide. About the failed invite, it was always around and can happen with any game at any time. I had a lot with both the older and new dashboards when playing activision games, none with battlefield 4 and some with project cars. It's more about xbox live stability than system.

    That's thing though, If I'm in the middle of a lap I'm not going to press the Xbox button because its behind my wheel on the TX and the invite only lasts for like 5 seconds. There has to be another place to accept invites.

    that's what I've just said. after the lap you press it twice, the guide will open, go to the notifications tab and the invite will be there.

    As reaper said, double tap the Xbox button takes you to the guide, or you can tap the Xbox button once to go to the dashboard than go left to the guide, navigate down to notifications and select from there.

    The notification will last for a little while, though not forever. I have also noticed that once I click on the game invite, it goes away, so if it fails I have had to request a new invite. I have reported this, so hopefully someone at M$ will look into addressing it, as on the old OS, the notification used to remain so I could hit it several times before doing a manual delete of the notification. I've been away for a couple of days so not sure if any patches have addressed this yet.

    Not yet but I'm in the UK, so I assume it will be later this afternoon because of the time difference across the pond.

    It was available for me when I woke up this morning. About 8am.

    If its not automatically telling you to update........go settings > system > update console (bottom left)

    The new dash is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much quicker than the old one. It doesn't take 5 mins to read a message anymore.
