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 ThankOurTroops, jon abruzi, howster34, lt smooth420, Jedi dojomaster, Alexandre7Jr, NEW M0N3Y, kevboard, and omitomm who also suggested using personal music collections and the media player app. Thanks everyone!]

    I really, really want this. The ability to stream music or from an app without having to snap is something I wish was implemented in this console man. It would be great if we could have this.

  • Gamerkiller1970Gamerkiller1970 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    No doubt snap is a great app,but it clearly takes up valuable screen real estate when gaming....imo not well thought up wen programming...There shud have already been a "run in the background"option....

  • JermophobiaJermophobia commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    And then in order to quickly access it, you'd just hold the middle button in on the controller.

  • HUNK 308HUNK 308 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would love to have this feature for the Xbox One. I always played video games and listened to music at the same time on the Xbox 360. Please bring this back.

  • SFx GODLESSSFx GODLESS commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I don't get it. Why is it taking so long to make this possible? If you can unsnap party chat while it still works in the background, why can't you do the same for music apps? C'mon, Xbox team, get it together!

  • by Kittensby Kittens commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    We reallllyyyyy neeed this, i want to game with music on the console playing from my usb But.. theres no way i could play destiny with the music control snapped, even the 360 could do it in the background.. :O

  • Diamond J DustDiamond J Dust commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    To be honest I'm disappointed and surprised that such a fundamental feature in an Xbox machine such as playing music while playing games isn't functional and the fact there is no xbox music visualizer is extremely disappointing too

  • K4T RenegadeK4T Renegade commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Oh...my..G... Wtf.... How is this not included like the 360 had.. How is this even possi... FACEPALM.... Sort it please for the love of skinny PETE!

  • MrGrapeNutsMrGrapeNuts commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    yes. Do it! Do it! Do it! This would be better than a free game for me. Gotta have custom tunes on a second play through or heated multiplayer. Gotta get pumped up for battle with a full screen. Even if it doesn't auto mute game music, I can do that. (except in halo?)

  • DrivialDrivial commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    @Recon Avenger, Thanks for the link. There is some hope! Though it still seems like a couple months away. From the looks of it the article seems legitimate.

    @fiViper, I like your idea, the option would be nice when snap is hidden. I also like Lady9mm idea of having that second option.

    I don't know if it's been posted yet, but hopefully this can water some of the fires hear.

    According to this article,
    http://www.theverge.com/2015/2/17/8050743/microsoft-xbox-one-apps-sdk-plans

    Microsoft does plan on adding the ability to play music in the background sometime in May. Don't want to get anyone's hopes up so I may have read the article incorrectly, so I would take a look at it yourselves if I were you.

    First post and this was going to be about this topic. I love how this does work with AC Blackflag and Ryse. Really i pay for Xbox music let me get a great opportunity to replay a game after I have beaten it to set my own soundtrack. Looking forward to more of these opportunities

  • Lady 9mmLady 9mm commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I loved this feature on the 360, it was nice playing my own music on GTA5 when the radio got to repetitive.

    Also I like your idea fiViper, a notification for the song that starts playing. Maybe have it work for Kinect with a voice command. "Xbox, show song" or something like that too.

  • keiisukekeiisuke commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I really hope this comes soon. I could do it on my Xbox360 and I hear PS4 has this functionality now. This is in my opinion an absolutely essential feature, and perhaps the thing I loved most about my 360. This feature drastically improves and personalizes the music-lovers gaming experience. Please Microsoft, make this happen in the next update. Please!!
