Skip Ahead Xbox Insiders get a new Surprise Me button along with a new build

Today, Microsoft released a new build of the Xbox One operating system to Insiders in the Skip Ahead subset of the Alpha ring, with a changelog consisting mostly of fixes for issues with Console Streaming, the Guide, and more. While no new features were mentioned in the changelog, Microsoft announced a couple of new changes coming to Skip Ahead Insiders in a series of tweets.

For starters, there's a new way to reorganize your dashboard by pressing the View button on the Xbox controller. The new interface should make it easier to add content to the dashboard, change the theme, and more.

There's also a new Surprise Me button in the My Apps & Games page. This will help users find what to play next, presumably by presenting a random suggestion from the user's library. This could be useful if you have a lot of games and just can't decide what to play.

For the rest of the Alpha ring, there's some news for the dashboard as well. After experimenting with two different designs for the dashboard, Microsoft is now bringing experiment number four to everyone in the Alpha ring. This version replaces the four tiles in the bottom left corner with a single button for My Apps and Games.
