Xbox.com Finally Adding a Way to View Xbox One Game Clips, Achievements

You'll soon be able to view Xbox One owners' profiles while away from the system without the need for the SmartGlass app.

by

Since the Xbox One launched, the kind of information about you and your friends you could see by going to Xbox.com was very limited. That will soon change, as Microsoft announced today that it's expanding the site's functionality to include a number of new features.

The new Xbox One Achievements view on Xbox.com

As demonstrated in the video above, Xbox.com is being overhauled to allow you to view your Xbox One profile, as well as that of other Xbox Live members. Additionally, you'll finally be able to watch recorded game clips, as well as view and compare achievements with others. You'll also have a way to access to the accompanying Xbox One achievement art, which you're free to save.

Previously, these sort of community-focused features were restricted to the system itself and the Xbox One SmartGlass app. Xbox.com itself was largely useless when it came to viewing Xbox One information; it was restricted almost entirely to displaying Xbox 360 activity only. It wouldn't even display what games friends were playing on their Xbox Ones (as it does for those on their Xbox 360s), instead simply saying that they are "online playing Xbox One."

These new features are described by Microsoft as among "the most requested community features." This is only the first of more improvements to come for Xbox.com--things like the activity feed "are on the way." In the meantime, Xbox fans are encouraged to continue submitting ideas for features they'd like to see through the Xbox Feedback site it launched earlier this month.

Xbox One is the coolest thing ever. Pretty disappointed with the Games with Gold this month though.

Ugh who cares. Where is the article about how XBOX Sold thousands of themes and now blocks you from seeing them and continues to still sell them but not refund them!

For the People who have an Xbox one, you should go Vote on my comment to bring MMO games to Xbox one on the Xbox feedback website. The more votes the bigger the chance Microsoft will bring MMO to the console.

I can always tell when I am reading a non-Eddie article because it does not read as if a Robot had typed it up.

Ah, finally... Hopefully this means I can also purchase Xbox One games through the website too... But for now, glad this has been implemented

Xbox is making some serious moves and at a rapid pace. I can't wait to see what my Xbox One can do a year from now.

Looks like MS is heading in the right direction.

@world4games Loads of fun. You obviously don't own an XB1, so how would you even know? I think their XBox Fedback site is great. They list the top requested ideas from gamers and then run with it. Sony doesn't take ideas from gamers and even if they did, they probably wouldn't rush to implement any of them.

@High-Res I didn't know the XB1 had themes. When did that start? All my theme for the XBox 360 work just fine.

@High-Res  Who cares about your comment ? You kind of sound like a whiney little bitch if you ask me.

@jako998 MMOs are awful. They ruin quality IPs (KOTOR, TES, Deus Ex...) and reduce them to shallow crap that people finish in days and start whining over no "end game" and other people mathematically breakdown the classes so if you don't have the optimal cookie cutter build nobody will team with you.


No. HELL NO!  MMOs can stay far, FAR away....

@jako998 Or we could just play them for free on our PS4's...ummm...like now.

@sammoth @High-Res No one asked, no one cares what either of you think, if they do then they`re pathetic fools with nothing better to do. I`m wasting enough time just writing this to say who cares about other profiles, I play the games for me, damn anyone else and don`t bother replying, you will not be acknowledged. BTW, curse like that in front of someone`s face, I dare u, KNUCKLE sandwich from me for sure.

@youmadd True...but so far it looks like he may be turning a new leaf under this new president. I would not wish anyone to be fired...just hope he doesnt give us a reason that deserves expulsion.

Judging by your name and comment intelligence is not your strong suit.

Not me. If you want them then stuck to PC. I've just had bad experiences with them trying to rip you off.

@rasterror lol!! I heard the beta was pretty bad. Glad I didn't wait my time with it.

@rasterror Can't judge them all by a bad few. Many of them are extremely fair. Rift. defiance star trek online, marvel heroes. Some of the best free to play experiences and they don't rip you off at all.

@rasterror  I mean they only have to bring F2P ones not subscription ones. I cant see how it would be a ripoff honestly

@blackace @rasterror  they Beta for ESO wasn't that ad IMO. I enjoyed it very much and its a MMO game im willing to buy for my Xbox one. I was going to get it this month but sadly they pushed the release date back so i gotta wait even longer.

@LatinproX @High-Res Can't wait to see this coming to Raptr. I mean come on. Raptr has been aroud for all my gaming needs. If Microsoft releases APIs or what's not for Raptr, then I'm excited.

@blackace Incorrect inference, I wrote I wasn`t going to reply to that individual who thought it`s cool to dis other people`s opinion with cowardly cheap shots. Don`t try to twist my words or you`ll just trip yourself up, mate.
