Xbox head Phil Spencer confirms Microsoft is working on UI changes

Xbox head Phil Spencer has confirmed that Xbox One owners will eventually be able to take in-game screenshots and customize the look of their console's dashboard. Speaking on the Inner Circle podcast, Spencer said that "themes and background pics are things we're working on," and also noted that the ability to take in-game screenshots, something he had been "beaten up over," will also be added in the future.

Microsoft's newest console has already received a number of monthly updates that have added a host of features that weren't present at the console's launch, including a new media player, better SmartGlass functionality, and external hard drive support. Spencer's planned UI additions would presumably be bundled as part of a future update, but he said Microsoft's prioritization and development time meant he was unable to lock down an actual date for their addition.
