Xbox One Getting Custom Themes, Backgrounds, and Screenshot Feature.. at Some Point.


One thing Xbox One fans have been requesting for a while now is the ability to take screenshots, similar to what the PS4 currently offers through its Share feature. Now that we’re all getting comfy and cozy with our new consoles, head of Xbox Phil Spencer wants to give the fans the screenshot feature we’ve all been asking for, as well as including the ability to customize the Xbox One dashboard with themes and backgrounds.

When? That’s a good question.

“And I think both themes, backgrounds and screenshots are things I know people want so we are going to deliver on them. But we can’t give a when yet.”, Spencer stated in a recent podcast with Inner Circle.

Microsoft has been consistently updating the Xbox One on a monthly basis, but we’ll just have to wait for Spencer to give the green light as to when we can expect these new features. The October update will improve the Xbox One‘s Snap feature in a few different ways, as well as updating the console’s Achievement app, Friend section, OneGuide, and SmartGlass support. You can check out the full list of updates here at Total Xbox.

What else would you like to see in a future update? I know we’ve been asking for Xbox Live Party Chat to be integrated in to the Twitch app so we can live stream games with our friends and have their voices heard as well. This would be a nice feature for both current-gen consoles as well, not just the Xbox One.
