[Xbox One Update] Dashboard Includes "Snap Mode" for Achievements
If you are an Xbox One user, and often find yourself wishing you could view your achievements while still playing a game, I have good news for you!
Microsoft announced a new update for Xbox One earlier this week, that will make it easier to reach your gaming goals. Xbox Live's Director of Programming, Larry Hryb (a.k.a. Major Nelson), posted a video on his website highlighting some of the more exciting changes.
The video mostly focuses on how "Snap Mode" is affected. "Snap Mode" already gives Xbox One users a variety of multi-tasking options. Players will now have the same options with achievements. The update also allows players another way of accessing "Snap," simply by "double-tapping" their controller's Xbox button. From there, players can view achievements to check their status, as "Snap" shows their "udpate[d] progress in real-time." Players will also be able to organize achievements according to their priority, and launch an internet search for help on specific achievements, all while still in-game!
There are a few other changes not mentioned in the video. According to Xbox's support website, there will also be changes for voice control and Blu-Ray.
With quite a lot to look forward to, you are probably wondering when to expect this update. Major Nelson's post promises the update "in the coming days;" however, some commentors on the post say they already have it.
Do you have it yet? If so, what do you think?
