Does anyone know if you can multitask on Xbox One, as far as watching a movie and reading/replying to text messages? we have seen multi tasking on games. I'm curious to know. The 360 could do it while watching a movie.


I also posted this same question on the PS4 board, because I was watching Pacific Rim on my PS4 (yes blu ray copy) when i received a message from one of my friends, but I couldn't reply unless I closed the movie or stopped watching it. I asked If there was a way around it or if maybe it glitched?

As you can see they're quite helpful over there, figured I would ask here since half of that community is lingering around here anyways. Anyone know why they wouldn't want to help or give me some input on it?

I am not sure, honestly. I do know that the multitasking on the Xbox One is lightening fast. That useless esRAM really does shine paired with the multi-layered OS on the One.

Why would you write a message while the movie is playing? O_O

You could be watching TV and accept a Skype Snap and chat at same time, or in game, or watch TV while playing a game, OR play a XBO game and snap a X360 game and play both.

Only thing we can't do is play 2 XBO games at same time.

Wait..so you're saying I can play an XBO game and snap a 360 game and be able to play both? *mind blown* did not know that thanks man, I'm so gonna try that. But how would the profile/gamertag thing work? oh well I'll find out once I have it.
