March Preview Update for Xbox1 now available

Post  mosher666 on Thu Feb 19, 2015 8:07 am

It's time for the March update preview! This month, we bring you some features that have been hotly requested by the community, such as screenshots, a setting for tile transparency level, and more!
 

Screenshots – New in preview is a highly requested feature by our community from the Xbox feedback site.  While playing a game, you can now 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 initial preview build, the sharing functions are not yet enabled, but you can start capturing screenshots and using them for your backgrounds. The Upload app will be 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. We'll share more detail as these features become available in the coming updates.
 
Suggested friends – With the suggested friends feature, the Friends area in home and your friends list will help you find and add friends. Suggested friends will include people you might know, so you add more friends to game with, and top community broadcasters and clip creators, so you can get more great content in your activity feed. We’re also adding a new suggested friends page to the Friends area.
 
Sharing your name – This month in preview, we’re 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.  The new name sharing options can be found under Friends > My profile > Name sharing settings.
 
Tile transparency – We continue to listen to your feedback and are adding a setting to enable you to vary the level of transparency for your background images, go to Settings > My Xbox > Tile transparency.
 
Privacy & online safety settings – we added a new setting for sharing voice search data to create an option for users to allow collection and analysis of voice data when they use Xbox – Bing to search.  You can go to Settings > Privacy & online safety > Share voice search data to change the setting.
 
OneGuide for Australia – Support for OneGuide will continue in preview in Australia for free-to-air TV listings.
Xbox One Digital TV Tuner in Australia – Xbox One owners in Australia with an Xbox Digital TV Tuner can now use it with the preview builds of this month’s release.

Doesn't double tapping the xbox button already have a function? It's either going to mess it up or hopefully just integrate into what is already there.

This update to be honest looks like they have picked stuff from the previous updates and just edited end it slightly. The only one I want is improved party chat. They should sort that before adding crap we don't need imo

It has the same functionality by bringing up the snap menu it now has a screenshot option on the Y button along with the Record that on the X button.

Completely agree with the party app needs improving, though I would also prefer that they get the Friends app working properly before adding features to it, it has gone down far too often in the last few months.

I'm not in the Preview, but have just noticed on the Xbox One dashboard the see new features link, and the new Update is now live, though i has to start it manually.

So mine is now updating.

Updated mine last night. The screenshot setting works really well. In Shadows of Mordor you can pause the game and enter a free roam camera setup and add filters/frames and other camera trickery, together with this you can take some really good screenshots to be used as wallpapers.

having to opt out of having more data collected really pisses me off

I wish these bods in charge would just fuck off doing anything else marketing/social media wise and focus on sorting the utter bollox of an interface. Finding anything on the bone is a cunting nightmare or a lottery

sort out the interface
sort out the party chat
stop trying to introduce me to more arse sucking fucktard suggested bellends from the world wide web of cunts
bin the pointless knobbery that is followers
give me the power to block any further scroats sending me friend requests accompanied by a message in Spanish
stop your shitty live service dropping causing me to be signed out of games oh and while you are there fix the 360 live service so I can actually download stuff I have bought.

but hey thanks for letting me set a background because that's the only reason I went next gen as games playing is so last gen

grrr!
