  1. Stream game audio and video to Xbox App on Mobile

    XB1 needs the ability to stream games to SmartGlass. The Controller would still go through XB1. This feature would only be available up to the max range of the XB controller. The idea here would be to have the option to play games and not take up the primary TV.

  2. View download progress in SmartGlass

    View the progress of a game download on you Xbox at home using SmartGlass is something I'd love to see. It would save me from running around to my Xbox every 20 mins or so to check progress. It would go well with being able to make purchases via your phone. If I buy Halo:MCC on release day, I can go to school/college/work and check the progress of the download so I can know if it will be ready when I get home.

  4. Watch home TV through Smartglass app anywhere

    The idea is, while the Xbox is in Instant On mode, it should be waiting for the Smartglass device to request from the internet to start encoding and pushing the HDMI in image. On the Smartglass device the person would be able watch the image in HD and change channels, volume, etc through Kinect IR commands without turning the Xbox fully on.

    TL;DR: Watch home TV anywhere with Smartglass app, also change channels, free with gold.

  6. Owned Game List for SmartGlass

    Allow me to see what games are installed on my Xbox Ones via Smartglass. With over 40 titles, I find it hard to remember what games I have when friends ask. I just want a simple library with the list, and maybe box art.

  8. Let people edit and delete game clips straight from SmartGlass app

    When you open Smartglass up have the upload studio there to use, edit and delete game clips. Also if i have say 10 mins of dvr footage upload only takes the first 5 mins to edit but you should be able to take the 5 mins out of the clip no matter where it's at beginning or end as long as you can select where you want the 5 mins to start and end

  9. Send us notifications via SmartGlass when a system update is available, that way we can download remotely

    I think it'll be great to download system updates when away from home. Smart glass should send a notification to our smartphone.

  11. Microphone through SmartGlass

    Recently my microphone has broken and I cant get a new one for a while. I had a idea that if a person is using a smartphone or something with a microphone that supports smart glass, that they can use their mic through there. It will also help people communicate from Having fun on Halo or doing a Raid on Destiny.

  14. Unify Xbox One and Xbox 360 SmartGlass Apps

    Now that the Xbox 360 is getting updated again, I'm sure the Xbox engineers can figure out some way to connect to both Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles out of a single SmartGlass app (instead of needing two separate apps).

    Please allow for control of both Xbox One consoles and Xbox 360 consoles from the Windows 10 Xbox app.

  15. Allow Separate Control of a Snapped App

    Allowing smart glass to control apps that are in the snapped window would enable someone to pause or browse videos/music while another person continues to play a game in the main window.

  16. Set Dashboard background image via SmartGlass

    How cool would setting the Dashboard background image be using the SmartGlass device? Photos from your camera, images from the Internet... It would be so convenient!

  18. Make use of that WiFi Direct technology & make streaming Xbox One content cellphones a reality

    Most phones come with WiFi Direct nowadays and it's a huge plus to use over bluetooth. You guys made a smart decision to choose WiFi direct over bluetooth for the system. Now i'm sure people will have to have to smartglass app, but I know it's very possible to stream games, tv, movies, apps, ect. from the Xbox One to cell phones, just like how streaming games from Xbox One to windows 10 devices is coming. I think a better idea would be to take that idea further and have it be "stream Xbox One to smartglass devices"

  19. Update games and apps from SmartGlass

    Allow us to check if a game or app needs a update on our Xbox One and then selecting update game or app will begin to update the game even if our Xbox is off. ( And notify us what has been updated when we play our Xbox )

  20. Add Cortana Support to SmartGlass

    Have it be a microphone button within Smartglass which when gets hit, sends your voice query to the console.

    Then while your at it, add in fast commands to the smartglass app so you can hold down the search button and say "Smartglass, Launch Titanfall" which will send the query to your console to launch Titanfall.
