Xbox Music

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 howster34, lt smooth420, Jedi dojomaster, and Alexandre7Jr who also suggested using personal music collections and the media player app. Thanks everyone!]

    This feature combined with full DLNA would be equivalent to what I had on 360.

    its good for all types of games, would rather listen to music than football announcers

    Just keep voting and commenting, don't stop until microsoft has no choice but to address this issue .

    I have faith they will get this done .im sure they've read this and now after finally releasing a new media player and full dlna coming it's only a matter of time ....

    Edit: it DOES say under review on the xbox music feedback site. There might be hope yet!!

  • SfotoSfoto commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I just had a quick look on the xbox music feedback site. They are asking for the same thing. So in reality this request has 12544 votes in total with 502 Comments. I just can't get my head around why MS is so silent about this. The request isn't even under review on music feedback site.

    Time and time again we hear the xbox developers talking to Larry Hyrb saying that they get there ideas from the feedback community. This obviously is not true as one of my past posts alluded to. Come On... Can't we even get an "OK we hear you!" from MS. I have to start and consider a migration away from Xbox Music. I have the pass, just can't use it the way I want to.

    This feature was added to the original xbox and was a launch feature of the XBOX 360. Without this the Xbox One is inferior to the previous systems. Please fix the new Media App soon!

    I support this too, and make it so that you can control music trough Smartglass and support DLNA devices and Flac.

    This is the most voted feature out of all the others for months now and is still not implemented... What do you think that says to us, the consumers. Either you're trying to make something amazing with this feature and release something that we couldn't have foreseen, or you just don't care. Hopefully it's the first answer.

    The only purpose for the app now is for videos really and even then it be more worthwhile snapped.

    meanwhile xb1 new media app is once again horrible at music playback.nothing like watching a full screen of your music while there's soo many more apps and games we'd like to be playing while our music plays in backround!

  • SLICK 8lSLICK 8l commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is the one feature that I sorely miss and still keeps me on the fence about turning in my xb1 for a ps4.if ps gets play in backround before ms I'm out.play music in backround should have been implemented yesterday.the fact the xb1 sucks at music playback is astounding to me
