Sony's upcoming Playstation 5 console, or bring back the Xbox one player's favorite snap feature. This feature allows one-fifth of the screen to be used to display content from other applications, such as YouTube / Netflix video, or Skype calls. Unfortunately, Microsoft finally cut this feature off on Xbox one, and the good news is that ps5 picked it up again.
The game Post reports a new Sony patent that describes how the ps5 will take advantage of this screenshot feature to make it easier for players.
For example, it allows you to change the display position and size of the YouTube video pane, and specify a corner without distracting the current game.
Arguably, Microsoft removed this feature from the Xbox one in 2017, for the sake of improving the performance of the whole machine.
As for whether the new generation of Xbox series X will reintroduce this feature, the company has yet to make a statement, but at least it will allow players to open multiple games in the background.
