Xbox One's July system update introduces 'Achievement Snap'

The next Xbox One system update will enhance achievement tracking and the console's Snap feature, among other upgrades arriving in July, Microsoft said on Friday.

Achievements now get a Snap Mode (pictured above), as was mentioned before Microsoft's E3 news conference on Monday. "Achievement Snap" allows the user to track his or her progress in a separate window without leaving the game. A "get help" option will send the Xbox One searching for tips and strategy content for achievements a user hasn't completed.

Additionally, the option to double-tap a controller button to bring up Snap, or to switch between Snapped applications, also will be introduced.

Other features include support for New Zealand and Ireland in English-language voice control, and Austria in the German language option. Users also will be able to register their "like" of a game DVR clip.
