Xbox One March system Update Preview Includes Screenshots and Suggested Friends

by on February 19, 2015

Earlier this month, Microsoft added a host of new features and improvements on Xbox One.
Starting today, members of the Xbox One preview program will get to check out even more new features – some of which are planned for the March system update.

As part of the March System update preview, you can expect to see the following.

Screenshots – New in preview will allow you to take screenshots on your Xbox One console by simply double-tapping the Xbox button on your controller to capture a screenshot and pressing Y to save the screenshot. You can also say “Xbox Take a Screenshot” to take and save a screenshot in the same way.

The Upload app is being updated so that you can manage your screenshots in addition to your game clips. You can use a screenshot as your background, by viewing the screenshot in full-screen mode from the Upload app, then, press the Menu button and select Set as background. In coming preview builds, you will be able to use Upload to share screenshots to your activity feed, attach to messages, add screenshots to your showcase, and eventually share to Twitter. Also, your screenshots will be visible in your profile alongside your game clips.

Suggested friends – With the suggested friends feature, the Friends area in home and your friends list will help you find and add friends.

Sharing your name – This month in preview, Microsoft are rolling out two new ways to share your real name; with all of your friends or to everyone in the Xbox Live community. You can also continue to share your real name with select friends, or with no one, if that’s what you prefer. Gamertags are still the primary method of identifying yourself on Xbox Live, but sharing your real name helps people recognize you who might not know you by your gamertag.

Tile transparency has been improved to allow various levels of transparency.

Privacy and online safety settings – Microsoft have added a new setting for sharing voice search data to create an option for you to allow collection and analysis of voice data when using Xbox – Bing to search.

Report spam – The Messages app has an added option to allow you to notify Xbox when you receive spam.

All in all, the Microsoft Train of Xbox One features just keeps on trucking..
