Xbox One getting screenshot, themes, background pics features

Xbox One System

An interview with Xbox Head Phil Spencer reveals some new features for the Xbox One in the future.

Those monthly updates for Xbox One owners have been offering up plenty of new features this year, and in an interview on the TiC Podcast Xbox Boss Phil Spencer confirmed further features including screenshots, themes, and background pics are coming.

'I was told themes and background pics are something that we are working on and screenshots, you know people beat me up on screenshots,' Spencer said.

'But I know that people like to customize the look of their dash. 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.'

A spokesperson from Microsoft also issued a statement to IGN:

'We’ve been carefully listening to your feedback and look forward to delivering many of those features and more as part of our regular Xbox One system updates. We look forward to sharing more details in the future.'

Since rolling out the monthly firmware updates from February this year the Xbox One has received a number of bug fixes and tweaks to the system, as well as improvements to the Achievements and Friends apps, and more.
