  1. Speech control while gaming

    It would be really great if i could do stuff via voice control while gaming just like the "xbox, record that" feature. Why not do stuff like inviting friends that just came online to a party while playing your game. This would also have the great advantage that if it happens that your kinect reacts although you dont want it to your controller is not completely useless. Sometimes im playing and talking to my friends and the kinect reacts so that the voicecontrol pops up in this moment you can't control the game with your controller which causes me to…

  2. Request: "Xbox Share That"

    "Xbox Share that"

    This command would act as an enhancement to share "Clips" from uploads while you're watching them.

    It could also be used across the board, for example, you're watching a YouTube video, you initiate 'Xbox Share That; resulting in the Xbox creating an Activity Share for that Video. The video can then be inserted into a message to a friend or friends, or it could be placed in your activity feed with your comment(s).

    "Xbox Share That" could also be used to share Web pages /Hyperlinks into messages where your friends could 'Launch' into IE to view them.

  3. "Hey Cortana, Send Feedback" or "Hey Cortana, Report a Problem" trigger

    We could use a "Hey Cortana, Send Feedback"/"Hey Cortana, Report a Problem" trigger.

    Creating more direct access to "Report a Problem" than holding the Nexus Button, then selecting Report a Problem in more motions, either of these ("Hey Cortana, Send Feedback" & "Hey Cortana, Report a Problem") should trigger an instant screenshot/log of the issue(s) we intend to report.

  4. Grab and Pull Down Gesture For Notifications

    Similar to swiping down from the top on a smartphone, you should be able to use the grab gesture to pull down your notifications on Xbox One from the home screen. The current notifications tile is very small and hard to hit without a controller, this grab down gesture would make it easier to get to notifications using the Kinect.

  6. Individual voice commands to turn home cinema / TV devices on or off

    Individual voice commands for linked devices. eg Xbox turn Sky off, Xbox turn TV off, Xbox turn receiver off. Also the Xbox should remember from your commands which devices have been turned off so that they are not turned on when you turn off the Xbox.

  7. Let's start turning our TV off with our XBOX

    For us who have our XBOX ONE hook to our cable box, If we turn the XBOX off you know we want our TV off too. You know we can't watch TV with the XBOX ONE off, and we can't play video games with it being off. So can you add an AUTO TV off in the settings? Right when turn our XBOX ONE off, the TV will go off right along with it.

  9. Alternate way to change volume with kinect

    Maybe you need to be quiet, or maybe you don't want to speak, or can't speak, or any other problem, let there be a way to change volume using other methods. Example, apply the hands on ear "I can't hear you" or "what did you say" technique. Right hand on right ear for volume up, and left hand on left ear for volume down. Legitimate idea right here... :)
