  1. 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…

  3. Stream the Xbox One UI directly to SmartGlass and navigate from there

    It has always been said that windows 8 seems to have been designed more for touch device. So why not allow my xbox to be navigated directly with a touch device? when I first head of smartglass I was under the impression that this is exactly what It did keep the controller feature of course but please impement this it will really improve alot of peoples view on the UI.

    [Mod edit: Title changed from "Stream the Xbox UI directly on smartglass allowing you to navigate it the xbox UI directly with your phone allowing you to navigate the UI."]

  4. 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).

  6. Allow us to rate content in SmartGlass

    Sure I can see what a game or movie is rated by the community but I cant actually rate them in SG...I have to do it from the console. Add this to SG. Also the ability to see MY rating vs what the community at large has rated something. I dont like that once I rate something, I can never know what the community thinks of that content: knowing that is most of the fun. It almost makes me not want to rate things. We need two separate ratings...ours and community.

  7. View and Download Screenshots from Smartglass

    The Title speaks for itself and the many uses I could think of for this should entice your mind as well.

  12. Twitch Chat on SmartGlass while broadcasting

    We need a chat companion on SmartGlass for when streaming on the Xbox One. I like to have my game fullscreen on my TV so having a custom twitch chat on SmartGlass would be awesome.

    As a bonus, having smartglass create overlays etc. Basically having all the functionality of a PC stream, would be great and make the streaming so much more enjoyable.

    [Mod Edit: this idea was merged with a similar idea posted by Geordie Flash. Thanks everyone!]

  13. Xbox Live service alert notification

    It could be very useful to receive a notification on SmartGlass when there are some issues with the Xbox Live service. This notification could also give us a link to a dedicated screen giving more details about the incident. A second notification could be sent when the issue has been resolved. All of that could be enabled and disabled from the SmartGlass settings menu.

  14. 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!

  15. SmartGlass controls snapped apps

    I think it would be great to allow SmartGlass to control a snapped app. For example, while snapping Netflix and playing a game, allow SmartGlass to control what is streamed on Netflix instead of having to switch panes and then go full screen to play next program. Thanks for listening.

  16. Feedback App

    The Xbox Feedback App on the Xbox One console is really nice, I love the way you can send screen shots along with what your feedback is. I was thinking it would be nice to be able to use SmartGlass to send write out your feedback instead of having to type it out on the console with the controller.

  17. Browse external hard drive via smartglass

    It would be awesome if we could browse external hard drives or NAS devices (later on) that are connected to the xbox one via smart glass. That way I could just pull up the movie on my tablet and my xbox would go straight to the media player app and start playing it.
