  1. 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…

  3. Screen share over Skype

    Like on PC/Mac, you should be able to screen share whats on your xbox one to friends who you are in a Skype call with.

  4. Twitch Live Stream - Custom Overlay Templates

    Whilst recording a Live Stream you have more control before you start. Such as adding your logo, website, FaceBook, Twitter details etc. This would be great for Tournaments, Game Nights, Walk Throughs etc.

  5. 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.

  6. Twitch viewers notification

    Twitch option;viewers pop up notification(switch on or off),and not constant on screen notification for example "no viewers". The best way will be, just a few second popup message "one new viewer/you have 10viewers". This feature will be very useful for gamers who play games on plasma tv(screen burn).

  7. 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.

  8. Twitter notifications when starting to broadcast with Twitch

    Twitter has become one of the best places to get info on news and games for XB1 and also to meet some of the best people in the community. I think it would be slick if when someone initiated a broadcast from their xbox one they had option of having a tweet go out with the game/title of the stream along with a link to the stream. Would just be another way for people who aren't on the console to know when they people they follow are streaming.

  9. Having a Custom option for Twitch Broadcasting Quality

    Instead of a fixed amount of the low, medium, high, we should have the option to set our own broadcast quality instead of hoping the get new recommendation option will give you a good enough quality so you don't have to see that your lagging. For example, say your quality is currently 850kbps and it constantly say your lagging, you would go to your quality settings and select custom and enter whatever number (750,761,702,etc) you think would be good to keep the stream stable without the constant lag.

  10. 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.
