Microsoft wants to improve the video capture capabilities on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One. As the feature becomes increasingly important, the Xbox brand has found itself playing catch up.
Modern gamers value the ability to record their sessions. Whether it is to upload to Twitch or YouTube or simple to share with friends, video recording is an increasingly important gaming tool.
Microsoft has not been a leader in the area. While video capture is on Xbox console, users complain of bugs such as lagging, trouble syncing, and problems with the overall quality. To remedy this situation, the company has improvements planned.
Jason Ronald, Xbox Director of Project Management, spoke with the Iron Lords podcast and promised a better video capture experience. In fact, he says it is “a priority” within the Xbox division.
“I will definitely say that Game DVR is the one area – the capture and share experience – that I wish we were able to make more progress [on] this year than we were able to,” Ronald explained. “It is definitely a priority for us.
“We definitely hear the feedback. We have made some changes and we have made some improvements to the reliability and the quality of the captures but we know we still have work to do here. So that is definitely a priority for us and something that we’re going to continue to iterate on.”
Ronald also said the best way to see what new features Microsoft has coming to Xbox is to sign up to the Xbox Insider Program.
