Xbox One to get screenshots and dashboard customisation in future update

Microsoft is working on adding the ability to take screenshots on your Xbox One, as well as to customise the dashboard with themes and background pictures.

Speaking on the Inner Circle podcast, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer opted to share some of the features the company was working on for future Xbox One software updates.

“Themes and background pics are something that we are working on, and screenshots,” he said. He made reference to that fact that fans had been giving him a particularly hard time over the lack of a screenshot function.

Spencer was unable to give an estimated release date for these new features, but he did suggest that they would arrive as part of the company’s continuing monthly update efforts. “The team’s done a great job with the monthly updates,” he said.

While the Xbox One has had a tumultuous time of it since its launch – particularly in comparison to its great rival, the PS4 – the company has excelled at adding new functionality through regular updates.
