For those who want to be more artistic or stylistic about their uploads, Upload Studio lets them use its editing tools to share that epic gaming recording as a masterpiece.
This new addition takes into account that the Xbox One gamers who have already shared over 500,000 clips, with the Upload community growing more and more, according to the Xbox Wire.
Because of this, Microsoft has launched a new way to share your videos, so more people can appreciate that winning gaming moment that you have captured on the Xbox One. There are three new feature additions coming to Upload Studio and Xbox One, namely the following features:
View: Keep tabs of your clips' views and see how many people have seen it.
Like: Find anything you like? Give it a nice feedback with a simple like anytime.
Trending: The newest section of Upload brings up all the popular clips that you may want to see.
Messaging and Sharing: The Xbox One Activity Feed and messaging system can now be used to share clips with friends and contacts.
Another addition to the Xbox One is the launch of the reddit app, slated to debut soon on Microsoft's next-gen console.
"At Xbox, community is a big part of who we are. And we know at reddit, community makes up the very core of the service there, too. The launch of ReddX on Xbox One is exciting because it combines the intense community involvement we've come to know on both platforms with the unique capabilities offered by Xbox One," Major Nelson said over his blog.
Major Nelson adds that the app will be like a merging of your Xbox One gameplay with Reddit, as you can now browse the reddit app through your television. Not only that, ReddX can also be used while you're in the game, and it can even be Snapped to the side of the TV.
This makes it accessible to you even when you're in another app or another game. Because of its media-centric experience, the Xbox One will also be giving some unlockable media achievements with ReddX featuring memes in the Internet, some of which have been tried and tested by Major Nelson himself.
ReddX pretty much has what reddit offers, including upvoting or downvoting, commenting, and even viewing images, texts and GIFs straight from your TV. More than this, ReddX also allows you to save a photo to your profile or set your own background for the app.
So far ReddX on Xbox One will be available to those in the U.S. and Canada.
