Microsoft Now Allows Screenshot Sharing Through OneDrive on Xbox One
Having just released the screenshot tool for Xbox One consoles, Microsoft is already issuing a brand new update for it- this new update allows users to share their screenshots using Microsoft’s cloud storage and sharing facility, OneDrive. After the screenshots have been uploaded, they can then be shared in an uncompressed, lossless PNG format, something that, it must be noted, the PS4 does not offer.
The full patch notes for this update are as follows:
OS version released: xb_rel_1503.150220-2200
Available: 6:00PM PT 2/23 (2AM GMT 2/24)
- Sharing Screenshots to OneDrive. You can now share screenshots direct to OneDrive from the Share menu in the Upload app.
- Enhanced Icons in the Party chat app. We’ve added new icons to the Party Chat app enhance the experience. Check back later for Quests that show you what’s new!
- Apps and games not launching upon waking a console from standby (Instant-on mode). A change is in this update that addresses an issue reported by users where apps and games would not launch when waking from standby (when in Instant-on mode).
- Display Resolution Reset. A fix for an issue reported by a small amount of users where consoles reset to a low display resolution (640 x 480) waking from standby.
So yeah, Sony. Time to step your game up. The one area where you had a lead, sharing, is an area you are gradually ceding to Microsoft as well.
