  1. Play co-op using two screens (Xbox One + Windows 10)

    For example: in CoD we have split screen right? We don't we split between the PC and XBOX ONE? The experience will be 10 times better. A lot of games has offline coop (this is the thing that I most love about consoles), like Forza 5, Diablo 3...

    Imagine if my brother is using my laptop in the room and I am on the living room using the xbox one and we like to play a COOP in CoD/Forza. That would be AWSOME. We are offline, we are in the same house and We don't need to use the same…

  3. Stream Xbox One games on Windows 10 while a family or friend could still use the same Xbox One for apps like Miracast or Netflix

    i would love if you guys (Microsoft) could multitask the same Xbox one being streamed to play Xbox one games while other family member or friend could watch apps or TV even use apps like miracast to stream their device all at the same time it would make it the Xbox one and windows 10 the best system/platform to have please make it happen

  4. Stream Xbox game while watching TV on Xbox One

    With the streaming coming to Windows 10 I would love it if the live tv app would still be usable on the Xbox one. So while my kids watch TV using the HDMI input (live tv app), or even Netflix if that is possible, I can play a game on my tablet streaming from the Xbox One.
    I hope this will work like that!

  5. Allow for games to be streamed anywhere

    It's great that Microsoft is allowing Xbox One games to be streamed to any Windows 10 powered device but it would be great if you were able to stream your games to windows 10 powered devices on a different wifi networks. For instant, if your away from home but your connected to wifi you can stream you games to your laptop/phone.

  6. Show controller battery level notification on the Game Bar overlay

    Now that there's a wireless adapter for Xbox One controllers, there's no way to know when the battery is running low, as the controller doesn't flash its lights like the 360 one did, and there's no software for battery level like the 360 had either.

    So it'd be useful if the Game DVR overlay would show battery level when pressing Win+G and if battery is low for it to popup automatically with a warning.

  7. Powering on Xbox One through Xbox app for streaming should not turn on TV

    I set my xbox to turn my TV and Cable when i turned it on, but when i want just to stream my gameplay, it turn the TV on too! It would be great if when we would turn our Xbox on through the app we could choose if we wanted to turn the TV on too.

    [Mod edit: The original title was changed from "Turning on the Xbox One for streaming through the Xbox app without turning the TV on too" to the title above.]

  8. Make Xbox One Controller compatible with Windows 10 Mobile Devices

    Would be awesome to use my Xbox One Controller to play my Windows 10 Mobile games. Either via direct USB OTG connection or via Windows 10 Wireless adapter for the Controllers via USB OTG on Mobile.
    Don't want to buy an extra Bluetooth controller for that stuff :(

  12. Add independent volume control option to the Xbox App when game streaming

    Currently there is no option in the Windows 10 Xbox App for Windows 10 or the Windows 10 volume mixer to adjust and set the level of streaming game audio. Adding this feature would make it much more convenient for those who enjoy multitasking (e.g. playing music in the Groove app, watching Twitch or YouTube, etc) on their Windows 10 devices.

  18. Stream Xbox One games to HoloLens

    It wasn't clearly elaborated as to the extent that we will be able to stream our games from the Xbox One to Windows 10 devices. Please be sure that HoloLens will have the capability to run a variation of the Xbox Windows App and Xbox One games will be able to stream to HoloLens.

  20. Steering Wheel Support through Windows 10

    I recently had a conversation with a support member on twitter on how some peripherals could be used. In the future id love to see some extra support. When i was talking with "^MP" I was asking about support of pc steering wheels. Myself am a big racing fan and sadly cannot afford a big expensive wheel. I have been looking for a driving force gt wheel compatible with pc. I thought it would be awesome for support of this wheel and a lot of popular wheels in general as it would help some of us who cant fork out…
