Microsoft: Xbox One Getting Screenshot Feature Next Year

No Comment 56 Views

Xbox One is planning to add a screenshot feature next year. The announcement was made yesterday by Microsoft Head of Xbox Phil Spencer. He explained that probably this new feature will be introduced with some of the updates expected in 2015. In the beginning of the year, Microsoft announced that the new feature was on its way, but now it is cleared up that there will be some delay in its release. The delay is due to the fact that the new feature has turned to be more tricky and difficult for integration than expected.

"We can do video, how hard can it be to just grab a frame of the video? It's a little more technically challenging than I thought. Two weeks ago, they think they've found a good solution for screenshots. They're working on it. They know people want it. The team has a path to getting it done, and now it's just prioritizing," Spencer commented for IGN. In an earlier interview, he said that Microsoft has this feature as its number one priority, because the company understands how cool it would be for players to be able to make pictures of their screens and capture a certain moment of the game or video.

Xbox One update

Unlike Xbox One, PS4 has this functionality since its launch in November last year.

As for the December update of the console, it seems that it will not come with many new features as the previous monthly updates of the platform. “In December, it’s probably a time for us to pause for a little bit and settle just as all the new consoles are coming online,” Spencer said. However, next year sreenshots are not the only new feature included in the developers' plans. Microsoft is also working on improving the installation times for Xbox One games, as well as adding some other new stuff and features.

With the October's update of the platform already launched, players can now enjoy some new features such as custom backgrounds and Tweets of video clips.
