Many think of gamers as loners who spend countless hours in the basement playing their favourite titles. Well, that may be true, but when we come across something beautiful - like the perfect goal in FIFA or a photo finish race in Forza Horizon 2 - we like sharing it with our friends as much as the next guy.
Microsoft may not have gotten around to adding screenshot capabilities to the Xbox One when it shipped, but a recent update brought this feature to the shiny gaming console. Here's how you can take a screenshot on the Microsoft Xbox One:
- While playing a game double tap the Xbox button on your controller to capture a screenshot and pressing Y to save the screenshot. Or if you're one of the rare few with Kinect plugged into your Xbox One, you can say "Xbox, take a screenshot" to take and save a screenshot.
- Go to the Upload app on your Xbox One and choose the screenshot you want to share from Manage Captures.
- Press the Menu button and choose Share.
- The screenshot can be uploaded to Twitter, OneDrive, your Xbox activity feed, private message, or your own personal showcase. Choose the service you want to upload it to.
That's about it - taking a screenshot and sharing it from the Xbox One couldn't be simpler, right?
- The first time you connect to Twitter or OneDrive on the Xbox One, you need to enter your username and password for services.
- Though Twitter lets you upload multiple pictures on other devices, on the Xbox One you are limited to uploading only one image at a time.
