  1. Bring Ad-Supported Music Streaming To Xbox One via Groove

    Bring Ad-Supported Xbox Music Streaming To Xbox One
    Makes no sense that it's available on Windows 8 and not Xbox One. At least make it available to Gold members.

  3. Add the VLC multimedia app

    The VLC multimedia app is already available in the Windows Store. That's a killer app that allows to read tons of video and audio formats. it would be great to propose it on Xbox One.

    thanks!

  4. 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.

  8. Bring full SmartGlass support (e.g. cursor, pages zooming, etc.) to Microsoft Edge browser

    When Xbox One had Internet Explorer, we could actually control it with any smartglass devices in any way - we could use our smartphones, ultrabooks, tablets and other devices to control the cursor, zoom in and out on any pages, etc.. But now, when Edge is released for Xbox One, we can't control any of it again, so looks like this new browser has lost some basic functionality (and it doesn't look like it has anything new to offer instead). It only works with controller, but not with my windows or android devices (with Xbox One smartglass apps on it).…

  9. FLAC on Xbox One Media Player

    I was dismayed when the media player for Xbox One was announced and there is STILL no support of FLAC.

    What is it with console providers and their seeming allergy to a completely open and free codec that would cost them nothing to support?

    FLAC is not some minority codec - it is the format universally used by all serious audiophiles and music lovers when they rip their music to a digital format.

    Go on any audiophile website on the internet - see what people use.

    It's not MP3, and its certainly not the huge waste of storage space that…

  10. Swap Snapped App

    When I have an app snapped, sometimes I would like to be able to swap the snapped app with the main app. For example, if I'm playing Titanfall and have my TV snapped, I would like to swap them between rounds so the TV is main and Titanfall is snapped. Then I would swap them back once the next round of Titanfall is starting.

  11. Mark open Apps with a symbol

    I hate how when I want to close my console I have to check all 5 recent apps to see if there are still open before I put my console on standby mode. I hate leaving apps or games open when I want to shutdown my console. plz add this feature to Xbox one I believe the ps4 came with this feature with that spinning circle under open apps.Thx

    [Mod edit: Title changed from "it would be cool to have a kind of symbol on apps to see if its still open or active."]

  17. 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)

  20. Netflix needs to be added to OneGuide

    Xbox OneGuide is by far one of the most amazing features about Xbox One that I enjoy. All my media in the right spot. Except for my Netflix addiction, it doesn't populate into the one-guide.

    I am not sure if this is the developers at Netflix holding back or something they didn't want to explore, but I feel that some pressure needs to be added on this.

    I'd like to see my Netflix 'my list' appear in the one guide, as well as perhaps popular movies / tv shows have their own lists show up on one-guide from Netflix.

    One…
