This is the first episode in a video series titled “5 Things You Didn’t Know About Your Xbox One”. It has tips, tricks, feature overviews, and other interesting information about your Xbox One.

-The Sandwich Button

Replacing the old start button that we had become so fond of, the Sandwich Button on the Xbox One controller offers a lot more flexibility as a dynamic input as opposed to what we had seen start buttons used for in the past. Maybe it’s just the fact that it’s renamed, but the sandwich buttons allows users more options.

One of the most commonly used functions of the sandwich button on the Xbox One is closing out of games or apps that are frozen or not functioning as intended. The easiest way to do this is by highlighting a game or application when on the main menu, pressing the sandwich button, and then selecting Close from the list of options that become available on the pop-up modal.

The sandwich button doesn’t just close out games however. You can also use the sandwich button to access other features such as: pinning games/apps to the start menu, managing downloads/game installations, or using it to access the help feature.

Gameshare (Or Game Sharing)

Gamingshare (or Game Sharing), is a feature that Microsoft released for the Xbox One that allows two different people to share Xbox One games without a disc. By signing in to a friend or family members Xbox and making it “My Home Xbox’, they will get to play any games you have bought regardless of whether you are signed in with your account or not.

For a more detailed overview and instructions on how to enable game sharing, check out this post on XboxDIY.com

How to Share Games on Xbox One Using Gameshare

-Recording without a Kinect (On the Go Recording)

If you don’t have a Kinect, or are looking for a more friendly way to record your game footage or snap screenshots, the latest Windows 10 update for Xbox One allows you to access these features by pressing a few quick buttons.

In order to access these features, you have to double tap the Xbox Home button. After double tapping the Home Button, you can either hit ‘Y’ to save a screenshot, or ‘X’ to record game footage. By default, the Xbox One records 30 seconds of game play unless you use the recording features available through the Game DVR app.

Clearing the Cache on Your Xbox One

If your Xbox One is running slow, the internet isn’t working, or if you’re having problems with one of your games, shutting down and clearing the cache on your Xbox One can help resolve some of these problems. Much like rebooting a computer, properly shutting down your Xbox One and clearing the cache can help with a multitude of different issues.

Clearing the cache and properly shutting down your Xbox One is simple: after you’ve powered your Xbox One down, hold the Xbox button on the front of the Xbox One for 10 seconds. The light on your power brick will flash orange, back to white, and then will switch permanently to orange to signal the Xbox One is in a standby state.

Using the Xbox Smart Glass Mobile App

If you haven’t already used the Xbox Smart Glass App for your mobile device, you’re missing out. The Xbox Smart Glass app for Xbox One allows you to control your Xbox One with your mobile device (phone, tablet, etc.).

You can take advantage of features such as watching recorded game clips on your phone, browsing the Xbox Store, or using your mobile device as a virtual keyboard.

**Make sure your mobile device is connected to the same network as your Xbox One.
