We know that a screenshot feature has been slated for the Xbox One in one of its upcoming monthly updates for a while now. That’s good, because it’s really the last remaining platform to not offer what’s become standard for social sharing in the gaming world.
In the coming months, we will see screenshots. Phil Spencer, the head of the Xbox division at Microsoft, tweeted out a screenshot of him taking a screenshot late last week. Here that is.

You’ll be able to snap screenshots (we assume by voice or controller, depending upon your preference and the presence of a Kinect) and upload them to social networks for quick sharing. It’s great to see Microsoft adopting and supporting this heavily requested tool.
I’ve said this for a few months now, but I stand by it. Say whatever you want about the current consoles and the way they’re shaping up alone and against one another; but, I think Microsoft has done the best job of listening to the community and quickly adapting. The updates are constant and sweeping. Kudos to them.
