I wouldn't say that usability wise that UI is any worse than the one that was one the Xbox. they're both horrible waste of space using to much space on single items. personally I don't use voice commands so that won't affect me, but usability wise it seems to be the only change that actually has any real negative impact on the usability, I suspect this is because they changed app platform or changed to making the app in house so it'll probably improve.

 

I however want the old Xbox UI back, the one with all the categories in rows so you simply clicked down to skip to the next category row and clicked sideways to view the movies/series in there. much more content visible at the same time and MUCH more efficient to navigate, and you could actually semi easily get into the episode list of series there which was impossible on the X0 without first starting to play...

I like the new layout to be honest.

I by far prefer the new UI over the old one, it's a lot closer to the older 360 UI and the web UI, still wasting a bit to much space with the top featured items, whereas the old 360 UI have likes 4-6 or so rows visible at a time when you scrolled down.

 

the navigation and layout of this new UI is definitely better than the old which was a nightmare to navigate, also now when you click n a tv series you don't instantly start watching, but you're asked what do to, including viewing all episodes/seasons, which was terrible to get to in the old one.

That didn't happen in the old version unless you clicked one of the top 3 on the "Resume Playing" section. Everything else brought you to a screen that would let you either watch the first (or next episode if you have started watching it already) episode, rate it, add it to your list, or view more episodes.
