Yesterday we’ve shown you how the custom background from achievement art included in the Xbox One November update preview look, but Microsoft did not rest on its laurels, and with a new update to the update they implemented the ability to use fully custom JPG or PNG pictures from an USB drive or from DLNA. .
Below you can see how 13 custom backgrounds look on my own Xbox One. And yes, some of the pics aren’t exactly Xbox-related, but hey, it’s my console. You can put what you want on yours.
In addition to that, I also added the background themselves, if you want to use any yourself. Alternatively, you can use any 1920×1080 picture.
Here’s how you activate them:
- Connect a USB to console / Connect a source through DLNA
- Launch Media Player (either directly or through Settings>My Xbox > My background > Custom image)
- Navigate to source of your choosing (USB/DLNA)
- Navigate to folder/file of your choosing
- Select the jpg/png image – see it full screen.
- Once you are viewing the image full screen, hit the menu button.
- Select “Set as background”
- You will be sent back to the full screen view of the image. Hit nexus, see the image on Home.
But without further ado, I leave you with the pics. Pretty spiffy, isn’t it?
In the gallery below you can find the wallpaper themselves. I’ll let you guess which one became my regular background.
