Xbox One: themes, custom backgrounds, and screenshots are coming soon

Xbox Phil Spencer

Microsoft has been actively pushing updates and adding new features to its Xbox One game console, and now Phil Spencer, Microsoft’s head of Xbox, is announcing that the software giant is working to include customization to look and feel of the dashboard, and to allow gamers to take in-game screenshots.

Talking on the Inner Circle podcast, Xbox’s Phil Spenser said that “theme and background pics are things we’re working on”. He continue saying “I know some people like to customize the look of their dash. And think both themes, backgrounds and screenshots are things that I know people want.”

Thus far Microsoft has shown real interest on improving its game console, as every month the company releases something new, or at least some sort of update to improve performance. For example, in October, Xbox One received a system update that includes support for MKV files to play videos using the new Media Player app, and the “Friends” section has also been resigned.
