Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One will add live TV-recording to its suite of capabilities in 2016
You will be able to schedule recordings from your Xbox One or other Windows 10 device, stream to other devices in your home or download to watch on a Windows 10 device while on the go.
I’ve been looking forward to this feature for a while, shame I have to wait a bit longer…
Tech blogger Paul Thurrott has revealed that the Xbox One will be getting the ability to record live television for later viewing at some point this year.
The report comes as Microsoft confirms that the Windows Media Center, used to play media from a computer to a television or large screen, won’t be coming to Windows 10.
As someone who is a big fan of the Digital TV tuner this is great news, hopefully we’ll hear more about this feature soon.
Finally, Xbox One gamers will soon be able to share those precious, special or down right embarrassing gaming moments captured from your console to your Youtube Channel. Xbox Wire has confirmed that an update to the Youtube App on Xbox One will start to roll-out from tomorrow, April 8th.
“Game DVR and Upload are among the most used apps on Xbox One. We know how important it is to be able to easily watch and share video clips, and starting tomorrow we’re rolling out an update to the YouTube app on Xbox One that integrates Game DVR and Upload with YouTube**, making it easier than ever to capture and share game clips with the world.
Now, use Game DVR to capture epic gaming moments, edit them in Upload Studio, and, with the simple click of a button inside the YouTube app (look for My Uploads – *Gold required), share them instantly to your YouTube channel. The updated YouTube experience also allows you to watch YouTube videos in Snap Mode, add individual YouTube videos to your Pins, earn Media Achievements, and add your YouTube channels to OneGuide for instant access to YouTube videos right next to your favorite TV listings or App Channels.”
So, if you’re not overkeen on the whole TWITCH experience at least the familiar Youtube service may be more to your liking from tomorrow.
Business Week has reported that Microsoft have been awarded a new patent for a game-playing console with an in-built digital video recorder that allows gamers to record content from their TV whilst playing games. Continue reading Next-Gen Xbox 720 Could Have DVR Functionality?
