Show all currently open apps/games by pressing the view button on the Home Screen
The Xbox One is a great multi-tasking device, snapping and being able to switch apps instantly with voice is awesome. Sometimes I'd like to be able to see all the apps/games that are currently running. Whether I want to switch between apps, or stop them from running in the background, there should be a visual multi-tasking menu that shows all currently open apps and games.
The view button is extremely underutilized. Even the view icon shows 1 window overlapping another, suggesting multi-tasking. Please consider implementing a multi-tasking menu in a future Xbox One update.
Perhaps by long pressing the view button a windows 10 like task manager opens up for Xbox One. This feature would be a welcome improvement for xbox one. Hope this gets noticed by a Microsoft engineer.

With the very cumbersome method that is required to snap an app, a very quick and easy method to fix this would be to implement Task View, similar to Windows 10. One would hold the Xbox Button and quickly tap either LT or RT to switch quickly between apps/games and quick focus changing between snapped apps with LB and RB.
Add a close all and this would be great

You should be able to press and hold it to bring up a task manager as you would a windows phone with the back button
task manager would be great
it could look like when you press the view button in the tv app
It already does. What do you think the four tiles on home screen are for? To end them, you press the menu button on one of the tiles and select quit.
