Here’s another Xbox One feature that will not be available at the console’s launch in November this year.
In a demonstration of the console’s interface, which Destructoid labelled as ‘flawless’, Microsoft’s senior director of product management and planning Albert Penello revealed that Xbox One’s Upload Studio will only allow users to share their recorded videos over Xbox Live.
Previously Microsoft had promised that the video sharing feature would allow users to spread their content across Xbox Live and major social platforms like YouTube and Facebook. However, according to Penello that won’t be the case at the console’s launch. He did add that he “hoped” Microsoft would integrate other platforms through a patch next year.
There wasn’t mention of any significant time frame and Xbox One consumers can only wonder when that patch would allow them to share their content across other platforms.
Xbox One Upload Studio allows users to record the last 30 seconds of their gameplay with a simple Kinect voice-command. The video is recorded in 720p at 30 frames per second and saves almost instantly. It is then free to be quickly edited and shared.
The PlayStation 4 has a similar feature but allows users to record the last 15 minutes of gameplay instead.
