Besides, now it would appear that that will be the situation pushing ahead. Xbox One Platform head Mike Ybarra tweeted that the expulsion of Snap Mode is to enhance speed.

Say farewell to Xbox One Snap Mode as Microsoft will remove it soon
Last November, Windows Central got information that Microsoft was exploring different avenues regarding picture-in-picture usefulness for applications like OneGuide that at present permit you to snap your TV screen’s contents. These were taking up a fourth of your screen’s space. The information was received by Windows Central. Furthermore, they conjectured that later on, Universal Windows Platform (UWP) applications would have the capacity to overlay existing games and applications. Moreover, we’ve as of now observed components of this with Cortana, Beam, and the new Achievement direct.
Cortana can be situated anyplace on the screen. Moreover, Beam visit overlays can likewise be situated voluntarily. In addition, this was shown back at Microsoft’s October event as well.
We don’t know when (or regardless of the possibility that) outsider UWP engineers will have the capacity to influence these new overlay highlights. Be that as it may, we speculate it won’t be long. We realize that this is a direct result of UWP that these new application components are conceivable. In case you’re a fan of snapping TV or different applications on your Xbox, picture-in-picture ought to venture into supplant snap mode later on.
