Microsoft's Xbox development team is working hard on a number of improvements to the capture and share experience on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles.

For many years, Xbox's gameplay and screenshot capture system was inferior to PlayStation 4. Sony's console offers several features that Microsoft never implemented and many were hoping to see some fresh additions to the system with the release of Xbox Series X|S.

Unfortunately, once again, Xbox team did not deliver but it seems the big update is currently in the works and more importantly, it's a priority for the developers. Responding to suggestions and criticism regarding the capture and share system, Xbox's Director of PM Jason Ronald responded that the team hears the feedback and are working on a number of changes to the system.

"We have heard the feedback and working on a number of improvements to the capture and share experience. Nothing to share yet, but a priority for the team," Ronald tweeted. 

Better late than never, right? While Xbox should have a smooth and easy to use capture and share system by now, fans will certainly appreciate that the devs are listening and trying to implement these, much-requested features. 

At the moment, we do not know what exactly will be coming in this major update, but it's safe to expect that clip trimming, HDR capture and uploading should be much better. Currently, some things do not work at all, and we also hope to see major changes to that.
