    Like Taking Screenshots?

    One of my favorite parts of Clubs and the Community tab is being able to see what my friends and fellow clubmates are up to by checking out their screenshots and video clips. I'll definitely be requesting to join up so I can share and appreciate what others
    have to show!

    Screenshot and video clips

    Hey there!

    If you feel as if there should be a different way of taking screenshots and recording game clips you can visit the
    Xbox Feedback site and you can submit your idea there.

    I also want to mention, you can purchase an
    Xbox One Kinect
    and you can give voice commands such as "Xbox, record that!"

    Best Regards,

    Which is the greatest feature for you on xbox? Just games or....

    Clubs were a nice addition. I think being able to capture screenshots/video clips is my favourite feature of the console along with broadcasting gameplay. Longer recording time options would be very useful.

    Happy Gaming!
