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.

    This would be incredible! I too recently broke my headset. Which I am waiting for a real wireless solution from Microsoft like the Xbox 360 wireless headsets to purchase another. Currently my squad is using Skype since I can run that from mobile and they can all still use their Xbox One to chat.

    if you have windows 8.1/10, you can download the xbox app and join parties with xbox users on that, utilizing your computer or laptops microphone.

    BTW.. you can get a mini-mic to plug into the 3.55mm mic jack. It works pretty much just for voice commands, but it would help you during the times you're in between mics. Amazon has them for less tha $10.

    I don't think it would impact mic sales too much. I'd still prefer a headset, especially if they're turtle beaches. But it would be useful for voice commands at the least of you're in between mics.

    i recently just gotta xboxone white version and it didn't come with a mic so i have iPhone 7 headphones and a iPhone 7. If it was possible to use smartglass app and convert my voice thru it to talk in a party chat it would be awesome.

    yeah this would be a great idea because a lot more people would use mics and people would be a lot more social

    I downloaded the Xbox app just to see if I could do this because of inferior controlers and the fact I need to send mine to Germany of all places to get it fixed but the only way to send it is with ups and you need to print a shipping label which is great if you own a printer :@

    This would be great so i could have my bluetooth headset instead of this stupid cord out the bottom of my controller. seriously the controllers run off bluetooth, why can't I use my bluetooth headset, it is so frustrating as the cord always goes right where you connect to the controller. the reason, you are always moving that or accidentally resting on that stupid cord. Bad design to not allow bluetooth headsets, at least allow me to have a part chat in smartglass as a fix.

    You should be able to talk through the xbox app because peoples mics are breaking, and so much money is being spent

    They really need to add something like this to xbox.

    I hate the fact they shafted people like me with a controller that lacks a 3.5-mm port.

    That means i am forced to buy a really expensive microphone, but i refuse to do so because I have 3 microphones with 3.5 mm plug. I hate that they were that greedy to even make inferior controllers like that

    Allow voice chat on Smartglass app so you can use your smartphone as a microphone.Not everyone has,wants or likes wearing a headset when gaming.
