Xbox One preview program members are now able to take screenshots and dabble with other features planned for the March system update.
As outlined on the Major Nelson blog, players can capture screenshots by double-tapping the Xbox button on the controller and pressing Y to save the screenshot. Xbox One users with a Kinect have the option to say “Xbox Take a Screenshot” to snap and save a screenshot.
Microsoft is also updating the Upload app so players can manage screenshots as well as gameplay clips. The app allows players to upload and share images to their activity feed, in messages and on Twitter. Screenshots can be set as backgrounds in the Upload app by bringing the image in full-screen mode and selecting Set as background in the menu.
The preview offers a suggested friends feature that includes people players might know, and top community broadcasters and clip creators. Microsoft is also opening up two options to share their real name, either with friends or to everyone in the Xbox Live community. Members can continue to share their real name with no one or with select friends.
The update introduces a report spam option in the Messages app and a new setting for “sharing voice search data to create an option for users to allow collection and analysis of voice data when they use Xbox – Bing to search.” New tile transparency options for background images are now available, and Australian preview members get OneGuide for free-to-air TV listings and Xbox Digital TV Tuner support.
Microsoft rolled out the first update of the year recently with the Xbox One February system update. It introduced controller improvements along with Game Hubs, pages where users progression stats, achievements, DLC details, leaderboards and Twitch videos for a given title are collated from their friends and the wider gaming community.
