  1. Download Progress Notifications Via Xbox App on Mobile When Out and About

    Could we get a "game finished installing" notification for the smart glass app when you are out and about and you are wondering how the download that you left going is doing

  2. Restore the search function (video/music/apps)

    Before this last update, you could use the app to search for movies, music, TV shows, and apps. Once you found something you wanted to watch, you could select it and see which apps it was available through, then load and play it.

    That was my most used feature on the app other than the remote control. Now you can only search for games. With so many video apps and such a large library, losing the ability to quickly search/browse all of them at once just doesn't make sense.

    Bring back this function that worked perfectly and should have never…

  4. Allow clips to be downloaded from Smartglass to phones

    I frequently record clips and then want to send them in a text to a friend or my wife. The only way I can do this currently is to record, edit, upload to One Drive, download it from there, and then send it. But if I take a screenshot, I can just save it straight from Smartglass. Please let us also save clips as well as the screenshots.

  5. Smartglass controls your music and media without a snap

    Without having to snap groove music or pandora or any other music and lose 25% of your screen, you can then control your music in the background seamlessly. let the gamer have 100% of that gaming real estate so they can preform better with tunes they want to hear!

  6. Buy Xbox 360 on Xbox One SmartGlass

    When it's a new month, I often fire up my Xbox One SmartGlass app to download the free game with Gold, but can only access the Xbox One titles this way. Would be nice to be able to search for and buy Xbox 360 titles from Xbox One SmartGlass app. (all backwards compatability titles should be accessible).

  9. Use a QR Code from Smartglass to sign your profile into a friend's Xbox One

    Allow my mobile device to be scanned by Kinect for login at a friend's house. Since I am already Xbox authenticated on my mobile device, leverage that token and provide a QR code that can be read by a friend's Kinect. If you are like me and have a strong password with Multi-Factor Authentication enabled, you know the pain of logging into a friend's console.

  10. Use SmartGlass like a Wii U controller

    There are clips that attach your phone to your controller. The Smartglass app should take advantage of your phone or tablets sensors and hardware; Gyroscope, camera, microphone, touchscreen, speakers and make use of them in games like the Wii U.

  11. Allow me to control a Windows PC with SmartGlass

    Basically take the things you can do with SmartGlass up against an XBox and allow me to do them with a PC. I realize there are differences, but for HTPCs and even gaming PCs this could be huge. Allow me to use a phone as a mouse/keyboard for a PC.

  13. Volume control for 3.5mm headsets through Smartglass

    Allow new volume controls to be adjusted with Smartglass. Volume, game/chat balance, and Mic Monitoring. These settings are currently buried in the Xbox settings and when playing online are near impossible to change.

  15. Pins in SmartGlass app should line up with the new dashboard

    When organizing pins in the SmartGlass app, the pins use the old dashboard's layout. The app should be updated so it matches the new dashboard's pins layout.

  16. 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.

  20. Use the SmartGlass App for mouse control in the Internet Explorer App

    Smartglass should allow and default to enable mouse control. I love having the ability to type using Swype on my Android through Smartglass, but to navigate any web pages I have to two hand it with a controller to use the mouse. Make the screen on Smartglass function like a touchpad on a laptop.

    [Mod edit: Title changed "smartglass mouse control in IE."]
