To access the menu, double-press the Xbox button in the middle of your Xbox One controller. To go to the “Snap an App” menu at the bottom of the home screen, press down on the directional pad or left stick.

(Alternatively, hit the X button to return to the dashboard and then push left on the directional pad or left directional stick on the main dashboard screen to access the sidebar menu.)

Snap AN Apps

Select one of the available apps by pressing the A button (or pressing left again). If you want to install another program, go to the App Store by selecting “Get More Apps” here. To pick an app, press the “A” button on the controller.

Open the OneGuide app to record snap live TV.

Press the Xbox button on your controller again to return to the dashboard and alter focus between snapped applications. Switch between the snapped app and the main app using the directional pad or the left stick. To begin using the app you selected, press “A.” You may also choose “Unsnap” to bring your snapped app back to life.

Double-tap the Xbox button, and you may return to the “Snap an App” option. You’ll notice thumbnails to the right of the “Snap an App” icon for fast navigating between snapped apps and unsnapping an app. You may also snap another app to replace the one you’ve previously snapped on this screen.

Using the Kinect Command to Snap Apps

Let’s imagine you’re playing a game and want to start broadcasting it to your pre-configured Twitch account as soon as possible. Follow the instructions below:

  • Xbox Snap Twitch.
  • It will put the switch into snap mode and bring it to the front of the screen.

To begin, launch the primary game or app. You may accomplish this by saying “Xbox, Go to [Name of Game]” or simply pressing the “X” button on your controller to start the game.

Xbox, Snap [Name of App],” says the user. It’ll show up on the right side of your screen as if you snapped it from the “Snap an App” option.

For instance, you might say “Xbox, Snap Game DVR” to launch the Game DVR program, which lets you capture pictures and record your games.

To switch focus between the two apps on your screen, say “Xbox, Switch”.

For example, you can be playing a game when you say “Xbox, Switch,” interact with the Snapped app, and then return to your game by saying “Xbox, Switch.

Say “Xbox, Unsnap” to uninstall an app. The app that has been snapped to the right side of your screen will shut.
