  1. Option to Remove Mixer

    Not that anything will ever happen, but I want a option to remove this crap you guys call mixer. I do not stream nor do I watch streamers.
    I play video games, Now I have another useless tab that was forced onto me without a way to get rid of it.
    stop forcing these gimicks onto people that have no use of them.

    Make them downloadable apps so if people want them they can download them at their hearts content.

  2. Twitch Broadcasting as an Option in the Xbox Guide

    In the preview update there is a dedicated icon for broadcasting (above the settings icon) but it only has the new 'Beam' app while Twitch can't even be snapped without loading the full app. Is it possible to make an option to use Twitch instead.

  3. DirecTV Now streaming app (NEW)

    Please add the just released (30 Nov 16) 'DirectTV Now' streaming app. This new app is one of the new 'skinny bundle' OTT 'cord cutter' apps to bring a form of cable TV over the internet. Similar to Sling TV and Playstation Vue. (DirecTV Now has nothing to do with the satellite TV service by the same company) It would be nice to use this within the XBox interface instead of having to turn to Apple TV or other devices.

  5. YouTube as Background Music

    Sims background music has finally came it could be a lot more nicer for YouTube to be part of the background music program (you can use YouTube without snap and it could be a lot more easier if you connected your phone to the Xbox One)

  9. Netflix Voice Commands

    Reinstate this functionality! I can no longer use Netflix hands free with my voice while I am in the kitchen prepping food or doing other activities. I love that my Xbox was also an entertainment system but now I must use a controller to navigate around it. I fear that Voice commands don't work in a UWP application which means Groove Music will lose that feature in its new release.

    Therefore we should allow Voice Commands (GREEN LETTERS IN XBOX) UWP applications and make them first class in all UWP apps that Microsoft releases.

  10. Discord for Xbox One

    Discord, a social gaming service, is one of the best to have around. It's safer than Skype and TeamSpeak, it's free, and you could interact with gamers across the world via PC and mobile. Now, I would like to bring Discord to Xbox One with the same features but with new added Xbox One features like snapping, etc.

  11. Improve Twitch Streaming at Lower Bitrates

    On ps4 people who have low upload speeds can stream on twitch without the video breaking, on xbox one on the other hand the video has very low quality and the image is breaking. In Greece (among other countries) the average upload speed is between 0.4 to 0.8 Mbps and people can stream just fine on ps4 but on xbox one the image is terrible. Fix it.

  14. PlayStation Vue Support

    Include PlayStation Vue in the OneGuide, along with the app.

    Other platforms, such as Roku and iOS, already include it. In addition, you allow for all other TV providers.

    This would extend Xbox options for cord cutters. Thank you.

  15. Google Play Apps

    Let us be able to download apps like google play music and google play movies. Then we can play those apps on our xbox one. For example if we have already own music and movies we could then play that content on our xbox one after signing in. Just like any other app that we already use on xbox one.

  17. 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.

  20. Bluray & DVD App Should Be Pre-Installed

    Hi guys, just inserted a dvd into the xbox one and it took my wife and I 5 minutes and a Google search to work out how to play a dvd that our 360 did seconds!

    Which product idiot came up with the idea of having to download an app, isn't this supposed to be the 'centre' of your home experience !!

    Microsoft, bundle the bluray and DVD app as part of the standard Xbox OS for goodness sake and get with the program and start creating a user experience.
