Screenshot Support And Spam Reporting Coming As Part Of Xbox One's March Update

Microsoft has fully detailed Xbox One's March update, and it includes screenshot capabilities, the ability to report spam messages, and more.

You can find the full list of upcoming updates here (the update is available now for preview participants). The biggest update is the ability to save a post screenshots to social media. To take a screen you just double tap the home button. It automatically takes a screen when you do that, but you will have the option to save the screen after the menu comes up. You can also take screenshots with voice commands. From there you can pull it into the recently updated Upload Studio to take advantage of a number if different options, including sharing your screen on social media, or setting it as your background image.

Other updates include the ability to report spam (something I have personally been experiencing lately), the ability to share your real name with everyone if you choose, an automatically curated list of suggested friends, and settings for how transparent you would like your tiles to appear.

Our Take
I am a big fan of tweeting out screenshots, so this is actuallt a pretty big deal for me. It was one of the reasons I would typically go PlayStation 4 over Xbox One. Glad to see it's finally coming to Xbox One, though I am surprised it took so long.
