New video demonstrates Xbox One's multitasking 'Snap' feature

A new video examines how the Xbox One's "Snap" feature allows players to multitask while they game.

The video stars Xbox marketing lead Yusuf Mehdi and shows him playing Forza Motorsport 5. Mehdi uses the Xbox One's voice controls to pause the game and quickly access whatever he told the console to snap to: his friends list, the internet or live TV.

Though the game pauses when the Snap function is first used, when play is resumed both game and multimedia run simultaneously.

Xbox One launches on Nov. 22 in North America.
