Xbox Dev: We All Miss Snap Mode, But I Don’t Think It’s Coming Back

Will Snap Mode ever return on Xbox? It doesn’t seem like it, but there’s definitely been a portion of the Xbox community that have longed for its return in recent years, after it originally proved a popular feature on Xbox One.

Xbox Engineering Lead Eden Marie, who regularly responds to Xbox fans on Twitter (we love the transparency, Eden!), threw out a random comment about Snap Mode the other day, suggesting it probably won’t come back:

As you may recall, Snap Mode allowed you to play games on Xbox One while also watching TV or using an app of your choice alongside the main game screen, but the feature was removed in 2017 to “improve multitasking, reduce memory use, improve overall speed, and free up resources going forward for bigger things.”

Marie would probably be the first to tell you that she doesn’t make all the decisions at Xbox, so this is probably more of a personal opinion rather than anything official, but to be honest we don’t see Snap Mode ever returning either.
