Snapping screenshots is on its way to Xbox One
Phil Spencer tweeted the above image, saying, “Nice to finally be doing this on my Xbox One dev kit.” You see that itty bitty text in the center that says “Press Y to save the screenshot?” That’s probably what he’s talking about.
Last October, Phil Spencer promised to let you save screenshots on your Xbox One in a future update, and it looks like it’s coming soon. We only just got the February update that brought Game Hubs, custom backgrounds, faster controller connectivity, and other things, so he’s keeping his team busy.
It also looks like this feature will be accessed the same way you do many Kinect-less tasks: double-tapping the Guide button. Chances are there will be a voice command to go with it, too. And wouldn’t it be awesome if you could directly share these to social media?
