Play Music From Apps Without Snap (Background Music)

[Mod Edit: The original title, "Xbox Music" has been updated to better reflect the idea that Audio from a snapped app should be able to continue playing even after the app has been unsapped ]

Allow us to unsnap Xbox Music and music to continually play in the background. It is cumbersome to want to play a game at full screen and having to deal with the snapped version of Xbox Music on the right side.

[Mod Edit: This idea was merged with similar ideas posted by Hibiscus Wolf, JC and JC, iLeeMurr, ThankOurTroops, jon abruzi, howster34, lt smooth420, Jedi dojomaster, Alexandre7Jr, NEW M0N3Y, kevboard, Qure Paniic, MrStilwater and omitomm who also suggested using personal music collections and the media player app. Thanks, everyone!]

Groove, the Simple Background Music Player and Cast now all support the ability to play music or podcasts in the background on your Xbox One consoles. Additional apps will support this functionality as they either update their existing apps to be UWP applications or ship brand new apps via the store.

    You have not completed the job yet. Background music is not complete until there is a native MS developed app that can handle the background music.

    Please develop a better media player solution that will allow local storage of music, DLNA Streaming to background, and background CD audio.

    Re-implement the 360's custom sound track feature and push it out to developers, they can use it going forward, and they can update their catalogue of games already released to take advantage of the feature. We need cut scenes to mute the music, and the convenience of not having to adjust (sometimes difficult to find) sound settings for each games so that we can enjoy the background music feature seamlessly, JUST AS WE DID ON THE 360!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    For cryin' out loud GET THIS DONE ALREADY, IT's ALL WE EVER WANTED IN THE 1ST PLACE!!!!!!!

    This feature is HALF BAKED, REEKS OF LAZINESS, AND IS EXTREMELY UNIMAGINATIVE!!

    The only "SUPRISE" with the release of this feature is that now I realize how spiteful a corporation can be towards it's loyal customers. You did this on purpose.. I can sense the snark, it's time put some real effort into this feature, less loose what remaining loyal customers you have over it. FOR GOOD!!!!

    1 month and 10 days and STILL nothing has been done about this. And STILL Mister Retr0 doesn't respond to anyone's messages about the fact they are blatantly lying to us about this feature being 'COMPLETED'.

    Go *** yourself, Microsoft.

    @RoBxEcHoNYC - What do you mean 'finalllly!!!'? It's still not here. All we have is some pathetic pos app that can't play more than 200 tracks of music, and paid subscription services like Groove. How is that even remotely acceptable?

  • Maiden Ty OneMaiden Ty One commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    @Bloobird - if your game allows you to control music volume separately from sound effects and dialogue, you can manually mute it yourself and do it that way. For instance, Halo MCC doesn't let you control volumes separately so you're *** if you want to play music with that, but Halo 5 does.

    I know Quantum Break doesn't allow you to mute music completely, so we're *** on that one.

    The problem is because the Xbox One was (stupidly) not designed with this feature in mind - and we can all thank colossal boob Don Mattrick for that sheer display of utter incompetence - the actual system itself and the games that run on it aren't designed for it - the 360 was designed with this feature in mind, so pretty much all games had their music audio on a separate 'track' if that makes sense, so if you played your own music via the system music player it would automatically mute the game's in-game music.
    Since the feature wasn't even considered when the One was being designed, it's likely there's no such separate 'track' for in-game music, so there's no way to automatically control it via the 'Background Music' player............in other words, even if Microsoft eventually do pull their finger out and provide a PROPER means of listening to OUR OWN music, even on the games it works on we'll still have to go in manually and mute in-game music ourselves.

    It really is embarrassing. Something that was originally a staple of the Xbox brand is now an incredibly pathetic, poorly implemented feature, due to nothing more than simple incompetence from an idiot design team.

    What an awful solution.
    Isnt this the same as plugging your headphones into your stereo/phone?
    The in-game music still plays?????

    How can I hear the gun shots/player movement etc over the top of my custom music?
    I could do this on my original xbox.

    Pandora is live! We need a not so simple background music player next! The posssibilty of other uwp background music players makes me happy! Just need that good one that doesn't rely on being online!

  • D0ubleIntegralD0ubleIntegral commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    How awesome would bluetooth (Airplay +1) background music be? Not hard to implement, and it will allow us to manage our music using our UI's/devices so you guys don't have to worry about *** 200 song limits, and menu navigations.

    Completed!? This is pathetic.

    PS4 Neo here I come!

    No problem, Maudi, and thanks for your support. I know for a fact there are a lot of people *** off about this like us - one look on Reddit is enough to confirm that - the problem is very few of them can actually be bothered to vote on here and those that can be aren't aware of where they should vote...there's no organization or cohesion in other words. :/

    Hopefully that'll change.

    Just threw my "two cents" in over on "Maiden Ty One's" new thread. It's polling on the 1st page under New Ideas. I suggest everyone here that gives a damn about this feature click the link provided below and VOTE on Background Music Done PROPERLY:

    https://xbox.uservoice.com/forums/363186--new-ideas/suggestions/15831469-background-music-done-properly

    Thanks for keeping this one alive Maiden. By keeping on the pressure, we CAN get them to implement this properly, the way it should have been since day ONE.

  • Maiden Ty OneMaiden Ty One commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    For those of us that are royally *** off that this feature is nowhere near 'complete' but the moderators and Microsoft have decided to act like it is anyway, I have started another thread for Background Music with the suffix of it being done PROPERLY.
    https://xbox.uservoice.com/forums/363186--new-ideas/suggestions/15831469-background-music-done-properly
    I suggest as many people as possible vote for this and maybe Microsoft will the *** message being forced to pay to use Groove or a piece of crap 'app' that can't handle more than 200 tracks is nowhere NEAR good enough.

  • Maiden Ty OneMaiden Ty One commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Nearly a MONTH on and not even a word about this. Microsoft really have decided to just act like the feature is done and completed so they can move on. *** you, Microsoft. Nothing but liars and phonies. And screw you, too, 'Mister Retr0' - we've been on here telling you to take down that 'COMPLETED' sign and you haven't even responded to any of us.

    You're all as bad as each other.

  • Maiden Ty OneMaiden Ty One commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    @AmuseableOsprey6 - If your music collection totals less than 200 tracks, yeah, that's great.

    Also, the fact that the 360 could store music on its own hard drive is enough reason in itself for the One to use that feature - of course that require something like brains on Microsoft's part and is simply not going to happen, but don't make excuses for them like it's perfectly reasonable to be expected to purchases hard drives ourselves for what should be a very basic feature.

  • AmusableOsprey6AmusableOsprey6 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    If I can stream lossless files from an external HD device as background music then that's it.

    You don't need to rip cds if you have a computer. Buy an external cd drive and rip your music to a computer. I use acurate rip and rip lossless WAV files.

  • MON5TER91MON5TER91 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    How do you guys forget about features that were on 360? No ripping audio from CDs? Surely it can't be hard to replicate something that's already been done. I must be missing something, did you truely think people are going to purchase music digitally from terrible apps, that they already own? Pay a subscription so I can listen to music that's not even listenable while playing games, unless it takes half my screen away ..

  • GEISTKAOSGEISTKAOS commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Mission not accomplished(or completed)!!!

    Pandora still doesn't work and we need something better than the simple background music player! I really hope you guys got your act together for scorpio and that it has these most wanted features from the get go. Otherwise it will be doa! With all things said I love the Xbox platform and appreciate all the hard work the update devs have done!
