Play Music From Apps Without Snap (Background Music)

[Mod Edit: The original title, "Xbox Music" has been updated to better reflect the idea that Audio from a snapped app should be able to continue playing even after the app has been unsapped ]

Allow us to unsnap Xbox Music and music to continually play in the background. It is cumbersome to want to play a game at full screen and having to deal with the snapped version of Xbox Music on the right side.

[Mod Edit: This idea was merged with similar ideas posted by Hibiscus Wolf, JC and JC, iLeeMurr, ThankOurTroops, jon abruzi, howster34, lt smooth420, Jedi dojomaster, Alexandre7Jr, NEW M0N3Y, kevboard, Qure Paniic and omitomm who also suggested using personal music collections and the media player app. Thanks, everyone!]

    Once in a party, you can close the app and still talk to your party. Why is a playlist of your choosing any different? I want to hear Flight of the Valkyrie while door gunning on Battlefield without the distraction of a smaller screen and snapped app.

    Adding my vote as it's frankly always been my #1 most wanted feature - I miss being able to stream my own music to the console while playing games.

    Do you have any idea how good classical music goes with Shooters? It's amazing.
    Why has this not been implemented yet.

  • TWEETWEE commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Still cannot believe this has not been addressed at this point. Maybe once it hits 20k on here (I do know 5k were removed in the past so technically it is over 20k) it may send a notification to someone at Xbone who would actually let us know the status...... Maybe even something like "we hear you and we are working on this"..... heck I would take anything at this point, just an acknowledgement that they are even slightly paying attention to the site they set up to know what the community wants, and the #1 topic. In the meantime I will continue gaming on a system that has this feature and continue to spend my $ there.
    Tell you friends who haven't voted yet to VOTE!

    I specifically remember Microsoft stating that backwards compatibility on the XB1 was impossible and to not hold your breath... Don't tell me you can't do this, at least be up front with us and give us the middle finger up our rear ends now instead of leading us on until the next gen release. I'm thinking of something...it starts with a "P" and ends with "S4". For all you people managing this wonderful functional site: ,!,,

  • DarthArrowsDarthArrows commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    So I just actually started playing around with snapped apps( primarily with music) and I'm finding there is truly no control over volume even with the sound mixer. But that's not even the worst part about it. The worst part about it is that you can't unsnap the music but still have it playing in the background of your full screened game.( like the 360) how can an older generation console have better features then a newer console. Answer me that Microsoft?

    Zanius Maximas post has helped me realize why we aren't getting this desired function. It is because gamers typically play their own music after they've played through the game once. So basically you already paid for the game. That's all microsoft wants, you to buy the game, play it break it, whatever. Then buy another game. You'll probably buy a different game if you can't play an old one with your own music. That was clever Microsoft, but we're on to you.

    Microsoft needs to learn that taking away features from it's consumer population is not good for business. The fact that I can't play my own music in the background of whatever game I'm playing severely hurts replay ability. Now I believe Microsoft's primary concern at any given moment is "How do we keep players playing?" Because that generates more revenue and that's what Microsoft about at it's core is about. It's a business (Duh!).
    So one would think that Microsoft would look into a very simple feature (one that has already been created) to further increase it's console's replay ability. Why it hasn't been implemented yet is beyond my comprehension. But I believe that such a small change can be put into the Xbox One's system. Your not actually changing any of the apps your running your simply minimizing them. A feature that has been around since before any of the Xbox consoles came out.
    The Xbox Team at Microsoft are some of the best programmers there are, how do I know this? Because they work at Microsoft, one of the most profitably programming companies ever. I truly believe that can find a way to make this happen.

    I pay good money for Xbox live gold, now $10 a month for Xbox music (groove music), I expect to listen to the music I pay for without having a part of my screen taken up.
