The 31-year-old midfielder will now remain at the Liberty Stadium until the summer of 2017.
The former West Ham trainee moved to Swansea in 2002 and - other than for four months spent with Sheffield United - has remained in Wales for the past 12 years.
Britton was delighted to have put pen-to-paper and told the club's website: "To stay on at the club for an extra year on top of my current contract is something that I am delighted to do.
"From a personal point of view, the contract talks these days are so easy. It was done within a day or two with no complications.
"I just wanted to get it done and signed and the club were happy to get it sorted quickly too.
"I'm happy the club still feels I'm able to compete and do well at this level at my age.
"It's a big thing for them to have given me this extension and I want to repay the faith the board and manager has shown in me.
"Hopefully, I can carry on beyond my 34th birthday but that's something we'll cross when we come to it."
