  1. Xbox Rewards App or Access on Xbox One Console

    I know personally I hate having to go to the xbox rewards site to claim my rewards or check how i'm doing, have an app on the xbox one which has a friendly user interface and simple to use! You can withdraw your Xbox Rewards points straight from your XB1!

  2. Make Spartan (Edge) for Xbox One with Flash Player and Silverlight

    This is ridiculous that they have not touched internet explorer on Xbox one since launch. They better bring Spartan to Xbox One and make so it has flash player and Silverlight!!!

  3. Please allow the ability to disable auto-recording of game clips

    Title says it all. It creates a lot of movie files that have to be manually deleted. Sports games especially such as Fifa, and Ryse multiplayer seem to make auto-recorded game clips frequently. Currently the only way to disable this option is to disable Game DVR all togehter. An option to disable just the auto-record feature would be fantastic.

  4. Netflix party mode

    Several years ago there was an amazing feature for netflix... Party mode. This feature was torn from our grasp without notice and left a void in my heart that only it could fill back up. Please bring it back.

  6. Replace non-standard keyboards like YouTube/Netflix with the Xbox on-screen keyboard

    Redesign the typing system on Youtube and Netflix. Make it like the way you would type to send a message. This would make typing faster

    [Mod edit: The title of this post was changed from "Redesign the typing system on apps like Youtube/Netflix."]

    [Mod edit: This idea suggests creating on-screen keyboard uniformity across a number of apps, with Netflix and YouTube acting as primary examples.]

  7. Add Video Resolution Selection option for YouTube please

    This will be really useful for both those who have data capped Internet Access and those with unlimited access who will always prefer to stream in HD

  8. Use images from OneDrive app as background

    The new background update is great but not being able to use pictures from OneDrive seems like a big oversight, especially for those without a DLNA server.

  9. An app for voting for backward compatible titles

    Now that we can vote for which games become backwards compatible, it'd be really nice to be able to do that from our Xbox ones dashboard, plus it'd give a lot more numbers to use for the consideration of adding a game.

  10. BluRay Title Card On Dashboard

    When a BluRay Disc in in the drive the BluRay app Shows up, it would be better if it would just show the Title of the movie and maybe the cover art/stock art for the movie. The title and image could be pulled from the disc itself or from Xbox Video. This feature would make it easier to tell what disc is in the drive if it's a BluRay. This could also possibly be extended to dvds.

  11. Media Extender

    Live tv is great but some of us actually use a Microsoft product for our live and recorded tv needs. The xbox 360 was the best media center extender but we want it on the xbox one also. Please give us media center extender capabilities

  12. Allow A Full Steam App On Xbox One

    Since Xbox One is running PC Architecture and the OS is windows based. Why not allow a full steam app on Xbox One? Even if you did something like not allowing any games that are being sold in the Xbox One Marketplace it would be a great way to get older titles on Xbox One.

    The PS4 has a great option of playing old PS3 games by streaming. Allowing Steam would add immense value to Xbox One. Xbox One would enjoy its library grow to the 1000,s in months with indies and devs only really having to map controls and…

  14. Update the resolution and frame rate for the Game DVR

    If possible, the resolution and frame rate for the Game DVR needs to be increased, as more and more games will begin to use higher specs than the 720p and 30fps of the DVR.

  15. Snap Center: Press LB or RB to adjust Volume Balance

    The new Snap Center has a "Press X to Record That" prompt, which gave me an idea:

    I'd like to be able to adjust the Sound Mixer slider from within the Snap Center by pressing LB and RB.

    This will allow users to adjust the volume balance between main and snapped games/apps without having to launch the Settings app.

  16. Watch Friend's Game

    Steam has started doing this with the ability to select an option in the dropdown on a n online friend and watch their game. There's something about having this built into the system that makes it vastly more appealing to me than the standard ways you can stream/watch currently via Twitch on Xbox One. Simply having it only turn on when someone wants to watch, and having that be just a friend is way more interesting.

    I think this would have to include collaboration between Twitch and Microsoft to get this integrated into the system but it could manifest as…

  17. Support Java, a Full PC Standard VM on Xbox One

    Be able to play games such as runescape and wow cross platform, same worlds and play with my PC freinds. This is the best thing ever and I really want this. If Sony does this before you I'll be so annoyed. Bring continuity to the next level, beat Sony and do what apples doing in a way that suits your devices, true next gen cross platform mmorpg gaming on the same worlds, PC or Xbox one. Secure a trade deal with oracle and leave Sony short strawed, lots of money to be made. Come on, you can do it!!!!!!

  18. Bring Sky Go to Xbox One

    The Xbox 360 has loads of entertainment applications whereas the Xbox one has only a few, my favourite was sky go and being able to go into a party while watching your shows would be great too!
