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!]

    YES! This would make single player games all the more enjoyable! Please Microsoft! Add this in with the next wave of updates! :D

    So 19038 votes for this idea, which is brilliant and loooong overdue, and still nothing even mentioned about it other that merging the similar ideas together...this needs to happen ASAP. I like the snap idea but never to play games. I have an extensive music collection that fits most games that I play but personally I hate "snap" and never use it. This was a basic xbox360 function not even an app.

    I agree. It seems a step back to not have this feature for XB1 since it was standard on 360. sometimes you just wanna play to you're own soundtrack. . In full screen. I've never snapped xbox music because it distracts from the visual experience completely!

    Plus we're paying for XB music. we're paying for games. . Now let us enjoy them both together in the best way possible. J

    I just dont get it... Take an amazing feature like playing custom soundtracks in the background on 360... And replace it with a clunky slow moving menu set that only plays music when its snapped on the side of your screen, thus diminishing screen size... Whoever decided it was a good idea to do this, really needs to pick up a book and get schooled... At this point, enough people have supported this and apparently voice messaging and other COMPLETELY trivial features that few people care about, get preference over features that have actual substance... Typical... I feel like - "Here's $500 microsoft, can you kick me in the nuts now? Thanks..."

    I find myself buying games for the PC now instead of my xbox one due to this issue. If the media player app could be hidden and still could be listened too, I'd start buying my games on the xbox again. I might still pick up the odd exclusive now and then, buy if things like this continue, I wont bother with another console.

    This is like the basics of the basics. Why aren't we there yet. It was by freaking default on the 360 and even my phone can do it, so why the f**k can't my Xbox One do it?!

    This is one of the many changes that seems to be a downgrade from the 360 instead of an upgrade. Add in a slow, clunky, confusing interface and I'm sure I'm not the only loyal Xbox fan thinking about how much better the ps4 is. Please do something about this Microsoft. Don't let me fall to the dark side.

    I feel like posting a new thread titled: "Lets get Microsoft to stop ignoring the most requested item, by far and away, Background Music". I mean, what does it take to get a response to this? Even just a "We hear you and were working on it" kind of thing. I feel were talking to a wall here... A GIGANTIC text wall.
