It's true. You have to think rationally when you're evaluating what PR is saying. Especially since May 21, I've gotten pretty good at telling when I should be skeptical and when I shouldn't about a claim.
This is a claim that would make no sense to exaggerate or lie about. First, it ties directly in with the multitasking abilities that have been advertised from day one, and that much has not changed to this point. The snap, etc, all that jazz. Secondly, there is no reason to be skeptical such a thing would be particularly hard to implement. Xbox One has architecture similar to a PC and is running like 3 OS. Multitasking on PCs is so common people tend to forget it's even there. Why would this be difficult to implement on the Xbox One? Microsoft has dealt with this stuff in their software for decades now. And finally, after they got caught out in so many deceptions and piss-poor PR moves, it is clear they're working very hard right now to try to avoid any future slip-ups like that. To this point, I doubt they're going to advertise a feature like this that will go on to once again either not work properly or be removed or whatever.
Anyway, that's my position. I am a skeptical dude, but I don't think there's any reason to doubt this.

Can you grab some quotes?
Edit: Nevermind, seems people answered. Wow, this feature is amazing for a console. Play other games while waiting for matchmaking? Goddamn that's rad.
