The Xbox Series X and Series S consoles are getting their first software updates today. In the first OS upgrade, Microsoft is bringing new features to the dashboard, including new dynamic backgrounds.
One of the biggest additions to the new dashboard is dynamic backgrounds. With the November update, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S owners will get a new set of six exclusive dynamic backgrounds. In future updates, Microsoft will add more styles, colours and designs to keep things fresh.
Next-gen console update:

Aside from dynamic backgrounds, this update also brings an ‘Auto HDR’ tag to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. This will let you know when Auto HDR is active for games that don’t support HDR 10 or Dolby Vision. This tag will pop up in the corner when you launch a game, similarly to the Quick Resume tag.
Unfortunately, those are all the details we have for now, but there will undoubtedly be some stability and performance improvements too, based on feedback from early adopters of the new console.
