  1. 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.

  3. Official Fallout Mod Companion App

    When Mod support for Fallout 4 drops make an App where we can search, download and rate Mods.

  6. Rewind game clips using the controller triggers

    Rewind game clips,

    Sometimes when I watch a gameclip I don't see what happens. If I want to watch it again I have to watch the full game clip again.

    It would be great if you have the ability to go forward and rewind using the triggers while watching the game clip.

  7. Google Play Apps

    Let us be able to download apps like google play music and google play movies. Then we can play those apps on our xbox one. For example if we have already own music and movies we could then play that content on our xbox one after signing in. Just like any other app that we already use on xbox one.

  8. Stop auto posting my recordings to activity feed

    Please stop automatically posting all videos I record onto my activity feed. Most times the videos need editing before anyone wants to share them.

  15. Ditch apps for system functions

    Having third-party apps for things like YouTube is great but system services such as achievements, friends, settings etc should be built directly into the OS, not loaded as separate apps. They take way too long to load and pull you out of what should be the seamless experience. This stuff just felt so much slicker and more integrated on the 360.

    Please leave apps for third-parties and make using core console functions as fast and smooth as possible.

  17. Snap Blu-ray Player App

    I like to have a TV show or movie playing in the background while I play some games. If I'm playing a digital game I would love to be able to watch Blu-rays and DVDs like I would while having Xbox Video snapped.

  18. Media Player app - Enable list view

    The Media Player app does not display full file names making it difficult to select the correct video file.

    To mitigate this issue "list view" should be enabled. List view will be able to take full advantage of the screen, something "tile (or thumbnail) view" cannot do.

    List view can be added in addition to tile view so the user has some choice in view.

    Thanks for reading
