The Social UI On Xbox One Is Terrible

What happened to the social interaction menus with the Xbox One?

The 360 completely blows the Xbox One away. 

The party system has gone far backwards. 

1. When you join a party it should automatically enter you into party chat.

2. The auto invite feature absolutely has to go.. no more manual invites!?... wow.

3. Show everyone in the party without having to click on the party to bring up and extra menu that shows everyone in the party.

The friends list is a joke, i've got to go to the dashboard now, click my profile, wait for the annoying feed to load, click friends, then i can see my friends. Also the "favorites" tab isn't even real-time rendering it pretty much useless.

and also the achievements are much more of a hassle to get as well. Again, it used to be such a simple task to look at an achievement while in-game, now it takes twice as long.

There should be an update to have either the simple and streamlined original UI, or if you want all of the new features like feed, followers, extra screens for simple tasks, then you can select the current UI. 

I understand the Xbox One is supposed to be "innovative", but certain things that made Xbox Live blow the competition away shouldn't be changed. It's a huge cluster right now.
