<p class="article-body__drop-character article-body__first-paragraph">During <a href="/missed-day-1-build-keynote-you-can-watch-entire-show-right-here">Build 2016 Day 1 keynote</a> -- Microsoft's annual developer conference --, the company unveiled its software roadmap for the rest of the year and beyond. The software giant introduced new features coming to the next update of Windows 10, which is branding as <a href="/windows-10-anniversary-update">"Anniversary Update"</a>, and it also talked about the changes the new update will bring to Xbox One.</p>
<p>Among the all the new changes, the Anniversary Update will bring support for Universal Windows Apps to Xbox One. Also, to help developers get those new apps ready in the Store, Microsoft is introducing the new Dev Mode, which turns any retail <a href="/xbox-one">Xbox One</a> console into a development kit. The mode is in a preview, but the company expects to have a final release in time for the roll out.</p><div class="article-body__suppl_content article-body__suppl_content--inline article-body__suppl_content--inline-cta-ad internal-cta no-amazon"><p><a href="https://www.androidcentral.com/best-online-learning-tools-kids" class="cta" data-link-type="Limited Time Offers">Best online learning tools for kids: ABCmouse, Reading IQ, &amp; more</a></p></div>
<p>In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to activate the Dev Mode on your Xbox One to start building new and exciting apps for the game console. Additionally, we'll also show you the steps to deactivate the developer mode and safely go back to retail mode.</p>
<h2>What you need to know before moving to Dev Mode</h2>
<p>Before you make the switch to the new mode, there are a few things to keep in mind. For example, Xbox One now has two modes <strong>Retail Mode</strong> and <strong>Developer Mode</strong>, and depending on which mode you choose, the console will have access to a different set of features:</p>
<ul>
<li><strong>Retail Mode:</strong> This is the state of any consumer Xbox One console, which allows anyone to play games and apps from the Store.</li>
<li><strong>Developer Mode (Dev Mode):</strong> This is the new state that developers can use to create new applications, but you can't run retail apps or play retail games. However, you can always switch between the two modes if you want to team up with friends to play games on Xbox Live.</li>
</ul>
<p>If your console is part of the preview program, you can't activate the Dev Mode on your Xbox One. In this case, you will need to use the Xbox Preview Dashboard app to leave the program, which will reset the console to the factory default settings, and you will have to reinstall all your games and apps.</p>
<p>Once, you're back in the Retail Mode. You will be able to activate developer mode in your game console, which will trigger a new system update with the necessary components to test and help you build apps. However, the update includes experimental and pre-release software, as such features not working correctly, crashes, and data loss are expected scenarios.</p>
<h2>How to activate the Dev Mode on your Xbox One</h2>
<p>To enable the developer mode in your retail console use the following instructions:</p>
<ol>
<li>Open the Xbox One Store and do a search for the <strong>Dev Mode Activation</strong> app.</li>
<li><p>Click on <strong>Download</strong>.</p>

<h2>How to deactivate your Xbox One from the Dev Center</h2>
<p>If after deactivating, you cannot access your console, you may also want to deactivate your Xbox One from the Dev Center.</p>
<ol>
<li>On your PC, open your web browser, and go to http://<a href="https://developer.microsoft.com/xboxactivate" title="" rel="nofollow">developer.microsoft.com/xboxactivate</a>.</li>
<li>Sign in with your Dev Center credentials.</li>
<li>Click the <strong>Deactivate</strong> link for the console you want to remote.</li>
</ol>
<h2>Wrapping things up</h2>
<p>While Microsoft is allowing anyone with a Dev Center account to turn their Xbox One console into a development kit, developers building new apps should be the only ones using the Dev Mode. Regular users making the switch won't get any benefits. Instead, they won't be able to play or run retail games or apps, and it will force them to reset their console to deactivate that specific mode.</p>
