Microsoft today released a new Xbox One video showing off the next-generation system's Snap functionality, which allows users to do two things at once.
In the video, Microsoft executive Yusuf Mehdi is shown playing Forza 5. He says "Xbox, Snap Activity," which brings up a friends list on the right hand side of the screen, showing games his buddies are playing, achievements they have earned, and videos they uploaded.
Mehdi then demonstrates Internet Explorer running simultaneously alongside Forza 5. He says, "Xbox, Snap Internet Explorer," which brings up the browser. Mehdi said players can use this functionality if they become stuck in a game or want to read up on tips without exiting the title.
Lastly, Mehdi demonstrated Snap functionality for TV. He says, "Xbox, Snap TV," which then launches live TV, in this case ESPN. Mehdi then goes on racing in Forza 5 while an episode of SportsCenter runs in a smaller window.
The Xbox One launches next Friday, November 22, for $500. GameSpot will have more on the next-generation console leading up to launch.
