Xbox One Update: Here’s Your First Look at Screenshots and Custom Tile Transparency

on February 19, 2015 5:05 PM

Yesteray Microsoft made the first iteration of the Xbox One March system software update available to the members of the preview program, and it came with the much requested screenshot feature.

While for now you can only set screenshots as backgrounds (the ability  to actually share them will come in a future iteration before the update is rolled out to the public), the feature is definitely spiffy.

If you’re curious on how it looks below you can see a few examples, photographed directly from the screen of my Xbox One (since there’s still no way to transfer the screenshots to a PC). They also showcase the different transparency settings.

Personally, I can’t wait to see the full fledged feature. Of course you can expect to hear about it here on DualShockers as soon as it’s implemented.
