  1. Replace Snapped Video Playback as a PiP Overlay

    Please give us this option. Whether a new pip or original snap. This was a system selling feature.

  2. 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.

  3. Option to change Xbox Button behavior

    Right now, in the october beta. Pressing the Xbox Button once gets you to the home screen, and pressing it twice takes it to snap center.

    It would be nice to have an option to toggle this behavior.

  4. When snapped, have the option to send the game sounds to controller headphones, with the snapped sound going through the speakers

    Having TV snapped to the side of a game is a great way to share the screen with others whilst gaming. But the sounds tend to compete with each other and lead to a rather poor experience for both gamers and TV viewers.

    There should be an option to divert game sounds to a headset plugged into a controller, while TV sounds are played through the speakers. That way everyone can hear what they want!
