Xbox Knows It Needs to Improve Its Video Capture and Sharing Features

Jason Ronald, Xbox's director of project management, has both acknowledged that the Xbox Series X/S' video capture and sharing features still have a long way to go while also confirming it is a priority for the team to get them right.

As reported by VGC, Ronald was speaking on the Iron Lords podcast and was asked if the company was still focused on improving Xbox Series X/S' Game DVR/in-game recording capabilities.

“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 replied. “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 recommended that people check out the Xbox Insider program, as that is where the team tests out new features and improvements and is a great place to have their feedback heard.

“You know, the best thing I can recommend is if you’re not in the [Xbox] Insider rings, get on the Insider rings, so that as we bring new capabilities and improvements, we want that feedback to know where we’re meeting the bar, and where we’re not meeting the bar," Ronald said. “But definitely, message heard, and like I said, it’s definitely an area that I wish we're able to make more progress this year than we did but it will definitely be a priority for 2022.”

Ronald shared that the team had heard the complaints back in January 2021 and, as with many things, these problems can take some time to solve.
