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: This idea was merged with similar posts from Jean Choukroun* and XeneoWho+. Thanks, everyone!]

[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.]

    Both netflix and youtube app on phones have a companion you can tell it what to play from your phone guys chill the xb1 keyboard is already laggy

    I agree. This isn't completely a problem for me since apps such as YouTube, Netflix, and Twitch all support the chatpad, but other apps like Hulu don't support it all, forcing you use their *** and often unresponsive keyboard.

    Take a look at how the steam box does keyboard input with a controller.

    Most, if not all modern OS's use a universal keyboard... why wouldn't Xbox?

    Recently I have began to use Netflix and annoyed the keyboard which is difficult to type... I will recommend this service to my friends if it replace the keyboard to the standard one.

    Add the ability to use the xbox smartglass app to type in what you would like to search for. Using the controller with the text ribbon takes forever!

  • Gixxer17 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is definitely needed so i can use the keyboard on my Smartglass app, since typing with controller is horrificly slow

    There should be a way to control YouTube/Netflix etc. without having to snap back and forth from game to YouTube, I should be snapped but it can be controlled with a keyboard while your still playing your game

    Do the XBOX One keyboard as default in all applications they need to use keyboard. Because XBOX One keyboard is great, but Youtube and others are smoothless and slow.

    Absolutely yes! Twitch/Crackle/YouTube/Netflix keyboards are horrendous! It's not Microsoft fault developers don't put a lot of effort in Xbox apps, but Microsoft should push developers to use Xbox One solutions.

  • TwilightXAngel commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I pray this happens. I hate typing using their keyboards and would much rather use the the xbox one screen keyboard.

    @DevouringLukeG that may not be a Microsoft thing, but certainly Microsoft quality tests and approves all apps on their marketplace. Further, they could make suggestions to the devs of the apps (Netflix, WWE for example) of better system feature integration into their apps to help make a polished product all around. So while it's not a Microsoft thing, that's still not a good excuse.
