XBOX ONE GETTING CUSTOMIZABLE THEMES, BACKGROUND PICS AND SCREENSHOTS
Spencer gets beat up on screenshots.
Microsoft is working on introducing customizable themes, background pics and the ability to take in-game screenshots to the Xbox One, head of Xbox and Microsoft Game Studios Phil Spencer confirmed.
“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 on a recent Inner Circle podcast episode. “The team has done a great job with the monthly updates, some of the things are just a prioritization and are a time in development.
"But I know that people like to customize the look of their dash," he added. "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 Microsoft spokesperson told IGN that the features will be rolled out in future monthly updates.
"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," the statement reads. "We look forward to sharing more details in the future.”
Microsoft has been rolling out monthly updates to the Xbox One, with each iteration introducing new features, changes and bug fixes to the system. For instance, the console received updates to the activity feed, profiles, new media app, the capability of playing 3D Blu-rays, the Snap Mode ability for achievements and more voice control commands.
