  1. Better integration between SmartGlass and Xbox Music

    I would like to be able to better control Xbox music from my Smartglass device. For an example be able to browse my Playlists on smart glass and be able to chose a song from it to play on the Xbox one. Add and remove songs to my playlist and so on. Kind of like Spotify and Apple-TV.

  2. 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.

  3. Show screenshots on Xbox SmartGlass App and save them

    Since the screenshot feature is going to be available, but they only saved on upload app, i think it would be better to see those screenshots on smart glass and be able to save them directly.

  4. Change settings on Xbox One through the SmartGlass App

    I'm continually having to go into my setting on xbox one to change the sound settings, which means you have to come out of what you doing whether your gaming or watching TV etc. It would be really good if you could change the settings of your Xbox One through the Smartglass app without having to interrupt what your doing on the Xbox One

  5. Sync Achievements via SmartGlass

    Since some people dont have internet available to them and therefore can't unlock achievements offline, allow people to sync achievements through the Xbox One Smartglass app since the majority of people have access to mobile phones.

  6. Allow people to invite friends to Xbox Preview Program in-app

    It'd be nice if I could invite a friend to xbox from the app, it'd mean I dont have to wait for my TV+Xbox to boot up

  7. Allow the SmartGlass App to communicate with the Xbox One when not on the same WiFi network

    For example you have your microsoft accounts connected so if you are away you can still connect via Data. Giving the abaility to see whats going on with the Xbox, add in the functionality to Turn on/off the Xbox with the Smartglass app and you have a winner. (Or just add Cortana integration to the xbox to do it)

  8. 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. Enable SmartGlass App to search your phone contacts and suggest new Xbox Live friends based on your contacts

    Just as title says. Give the Smartglass app on your phone permissions to search your phones contacts and automatically suggest friends from people in your contacts who also have the Smartglass app on their phone.

    Then next time you turn on your Xbox a pop up message will say "Based on your phones contacts we have found 14 potential Xbox Live friends, would you like to add them now?"

  13. Extended 'Universal Remote' Controls

    Its great that I can turn on my xbox one, tv, and amp through smartglass. But I have more devices than that, and they don't always play nice with Xbox. I'd love to be able to incorporate more devices into smartglass, and have more control options.

    [Mod Edit: This idea is dependent on the Xbox One being able to control other devices via IR first]

  15. Allow us to use Voice control with Cortana/SmartGlass

    Instead of yelling at Kinect over 3 kids to turn down the TV or Pause Live TV or do whatever .. Please let me hit a button on smart glass or doing so with Cortana on my Windows Phone to allow me to pass commands to the XBOX!!

    [Mod Note: This idea was merged with a similar idea from FIREHAWK. Thanks everyone! - Mister Retr0]

  16. Show server status in SmartGlass

    When servers are down in one way or another, show it in the app such that users can see what is wrong without going to a browser. However, when servers are all up and running, nothing has to be displayed.

  17. Upload Gameclip Directly to Onedrive

    I would like to see the option to save game clips from SmartGlass directly to my OneDrive storage. I like how you can view them, but I would like to save them if I am on the road and away from my Xbox One.

  20. 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.
