Bring Back Snap (Instead of or In Addition to Overlays)

Removing the Snap feature when it was a major selling point of the console is a step backwards. Allow all apps (including One Guide) to work in PiP mode with the new overlay feature, but also allow us to resize the game so we can place the PiP window in the empty space, replicating snap. Covering up part of the game is NEVER a good solution.

    I chose the Xbox One over Playstation solely because of this feature. I use oneguide so much that now, i don't play at all really. Playing was only to keep me a little more entertained while I watched TV.

    Bring back Snap or PIP so I can keep enjoying my shows while playing.

    Please bring snap back or give me my money back for the Xbox one tv tuner.Who had this great idea to remove snap without a new PiP app?This is a step backwards for a so called multimedia box.I don't notice any improvement because of its removal.I think i understand your business.....do here something wrong.....do there something wrong.....and say its all back on xbox scorpio.If so,then not for me.Bring back snap on xbox one or no new box for me.

    I'm not sure why they took this out. Maybe for performance issues. However if that is the lone case I hope they bring it back for scorpio. This was a big selling point to me and taking it away seemed pointless to me. BRING IT BAK :<

    The snap feature was a big buying point for me. Bring it back and add an option in the menus to turn it on or off. If you want to use snap you got it if not you can turn it off and get the extra "boost".

    If they are going to really improve it then have the friggin update ready. Instead we sit here lifeless saying no we don't want it while Xbox is there giving it to us anyway. Not fair.

    Lol they said they discontinued the snap feature to improve performance.........stop it. I have the Kinect for my daughter and they have hardly any games for it. Now you can't Skype or watch TV while playing the game. I used to watch all my sports and play at the same time no more..........I'm not gonna try to convince these dumbasses they really don't care about the customer. Let's just go trade our *** in and get ps4 I bet they get it right next time. I'm getting a ps4 anyway I'm sick of Everytime they do something good they take it away or they never use it......I'm done

    snap makes it possible to skype and play at same time, thats why i wanted it over ps4, it should not have taken up a 1/3 of screen in first place but it was way better then nothing! none of your updates or new ideas are any good, all you xbox employees should take two weeks off then quit!!

    Bring Snap Back. It was a great feature once I found it. Playing games while watching SlingTv is the best way to keep current and get my gaming fix.

    i totally agree chyld, snap was ons of the best features on the consol. being able to listen to YouTube or Xbox music whilst playing games was great. PLEASE BRING IT BACK
