Enhanced error reporting is a useful Xbox feature that allows you to send reports to Microsoft and help them analyze and fix issues better.

This feature will send information such as the memory state of your console when a crash appears. Also, you should know that this feature might send some of your personal information to Microsoft, so you might want to disable this feature if you’re not comfortable with sharing of your personal information.

If you want to enable Enhanced error reporting on your console, in today’s article we’re going to show you how to do that easily on your Xbox One.

How do I enable Enhanced error reporting on Xbox One?
