Video games are, at their heart, a social activity. Even when you’re playing solo, you often want to share your epic gamer moments with friends on social media.
It makes sense, then, that capture functionality would be important to players.
In a recent Iron Lords podcast, Jason Ronald (director of program management at Xbox) spoke about the company’s plans for Game DVR on the consoles. Ronald said that Game DVR “is definitely a priority” for the team and that it’s “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.”
However, that doesn’t mean improvements are not already well on their way. Ronald explains in the interview that the team “have made some changes” and “some improvements to the reliability and the quality of the captures” but adds that they “definitely hear the feedback” and “know we still have work to do here.”
Ronald also recommends that listeners join the Xbox insider program for up to date news and access to new features. “Get on the Insider rings,” he says, “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.”
We have heard the feedback and working on a number of improvements to the capture and share experience. Nothing to share yet, but a priority for the team.

It’ll be an ongoing process to fix issues that have been occurring with capture share, but it seems Xbox is committed to rectifying this.
