How to capture the previous 30 seconds of gameplay

Did something amazing just happen? You can immediately capture the past 30 seconds of gameplay at any time.

To record using a controller, double-tap the Xbox button  and then press the X button  .

      • 3 minutes
      • 5 minutes
    2. Start new clip: Record up to 5 minutes of what you’re about to do in the game. Select Start recording, and then select Stop recording when you’re done.
