Xbox One Achievement Snap Feature Previewed

Post  KENT HAMMER on Sun Jun 15, 2014 4:49 pm

Microsoft has previewed its July update for Xbox One, discussing a number of upcoming features including the ability to Snap achievements.

"We can’t wait to dig into your ideas and explore what may be possible for the future of Xbox," said Major Nelson. "What better way to keep this momentum going than to share what’s coming in July? Here’s a shortlist of features rolling out in the next few days to folks getting early access to the Xbox One system update."

Snap Mode for Achievements. As we showed at our E3 Green Carpet event before the show, we’re offering an easier way to track and view your achievements in the moment. With Achievement Snap, you can track your achievement progress in real time without ever leaving the game. You can also ‘Get Help’ on any Achievements you’re struggling with. Xbox will scan the web for you and deliver relevant tips and strategy content right to your TV.
Double-tap to Snap. Double-tap the button on your controller to bring up Snap Center, where you can launch Achievements or any other snap-able app, without leaving your game. Already have an app snapped? Double-tap quickly switches between your game and the snapped app.
Choice of Spoken Language. Folks in New Zealand, Ireland and Austria, with this update in July, will be able to select voice control using the English or German voice models from other countries. And if you’re an expat in an English-speaking country, you, too, can choose any of the other English language models that fit you.
Future Digital Bundles and Compilation Discs. We’re doing some work now so that publishers will have options for great digital bundle and disc compilation offerings in the future. As we test this feature, we’ll be seeing more flexible combinations of game titles and game content.
‘Like’ Game DVR clips. We’re adding the ability to ‘Like’ all your favorite Game DVR clips as well as activity feed items in SmartGlass.
In addition to this, a short video was also released, showcasing achievement Snap on Xbox One. Looks handy, don't it?

FUCK YEAH! They finally figured out that we actually know how to speak English in Ireland. In fact the Brits beat it into my ancestors so well we speak it better than them half the time Razz just don't ask me to speak anything else though like French Laughing

Tried the achievement snap feature last night, it's great. It's nice to see the progress bars going up rather than hoping that you are working towards an achievement hoping it pops.

Tried the new snap feature and while I do like the idea of seeing how far off some of the achievements you are I didn't like the fact that it didn't pause my game when I was playing Tomb Raider and I ended up getting killed but apart from that it's good.
