  1. Option to turn off suggested friends from the Xbox App on Windows 10

    Please can we have the ability to turn off the suggested "social" elements that go beyond my friends list.

    This includes

    "Suggestions" - Guide/Friends & clubs
    "Suggested for you" - Community/Activity Feed
    "Popular now" - Community/Activity Feed
    Adverts for feeds on the right hand side of the - Community/clubs and trending
    Auto follow of purchased and played games - Community/Activity feed

    I understand people appreciate these features and use them but I don't and never have.

    The suggestions show people I have removed from my friends lists and a selection of random people that I share nothing in common with…

  2. QR Code Scan for Xbox App

    What's up Xbox, when I buy anything on Xbox live, like games or DLC, etc. I use Xbox gift cards and when I buy them and redeem them it would be awesome to have a QR Code scan for the Xbox app on smartphones. I dont mind putting in the code when I am on the Xbox itself, but it would be awesome a code scan for the app, thanks!

  3. Put Xbox Play Anywhere Titles on Steam

    We want to play the new titles announced at E3 on Steam, but we do not want to be forced into using another ecosystem. We want all of our games in one place with the community we love and for most of us on PC, that place is Steam.

    "Without forcing gamers to abandon all of the games and the community they love so much."
    - Xbox - Project Scorpio

    Please build off the offering announced at E3 by having the games available for purchase on Steam. Additionally, if we decide to purchase the game for Xbox, please give…

  4. Share Game Clips to Facebook via the Xbox App

    I know you can share items through the Xbox One itself and that's great. However, I would like to see the ability to share items to Twitter via the PC/Mobile. It'll make things a bit easier.

  6. Allow users to view purchase history via Xbox app

    This applies to xbox/windows as a whole. Can you implement a method so that users can view their games purchase history via the Xbox app rather than navigating to a website to get this information. Its rather counter intuitive to be able to purchase via app but then not be able to see what was purchased/when it was purchased and via what payment method. Its also annoying as you have to login to the site when the user was logged into the app.

  8. Add save game management to Xbox App

    How come the Xbox app on Win 10 and Win Mobile 10 cannot manage save files? Is there any chance this feature could be added? Lack of it makes the apps look rather unfinished.

  9. Manually assign controller numbers

    My Xbox One Elite controller gets pushed back in the controller cue as soon as some Xbox 360 controllers are connected. It would be great, if there was a way to assing the controller numbers manually. Or at least to avoid that the Xbox One controller gets moved behind the 360 controllers. I'd like to be the Elite controller my primary game controller, when more than one controller is connected. It would also help, if there was a way to change the controller groups, so that Xbox One Controllers always take the first spots (or the other way round, if…

  10. Custom game installation directory configurable in Xbox App

    Should be able to create a custom game installation directory within Xbox App such as is allowed on Steam, Origin, Uplay, and GOG. My C: drive is very full and I am currently unable to buy any games because of this limitation of where I can install to. The uninstall or move option is greyed out for the Xbox app as well. I found a powershell command that deletes the xbox app but I would prefer not to use a command line.

  13. Game DVR: Full Desktop Recording Option

    Expanding Game DVR to a full fledged desktop recording solution would be great. As for now, its outstanding quality and performance is already superior to all the expensive screen recording solutions out there, that it could become the major tool for all screen recordings, if it was simply not limited to a game or app but would (optinally) record anything that is happening on your screen.

  14. Play a game on Xbox One and stream another one to Windows 10 Xbox App

    If you go with this idea many people will move to xbox rather than PS4.

    The idea is as follow:

    There will be:
    -one xbox one console
    -one or more windows 10 PCs
    -one or more xbox live accounts

    The user with "my xbox home" account will lunch xbox one and sign in and play with game 1, another user 2 will play another game on windows 10 streaming from xbox one. If there are more users they can stream from from xbox one and everyone of them will sign in to his account on windows 10 and will stream…

  15. Provide driver support for Xbox One fight sticks on Windows 10

    Currently due to a known driver issue, Windows 10 does not support XBox One fight sticks. This is very frustrating that we are unable to use MS approved gear on our Windows 10 PC's

  16. Bring All Xbox Exclusives to Windows 10

    I hope I can purchase any version of all Xbox exclusives,
    I'm fan of those games but I can't get an Xbox, because I'm not in my home and move around places,
    I got disappointed when the (Xbox on pc) is only done when you have your Xbox turned on :(
    and I really hoped for (Halo and Gears cars in Rocket League) to be purchasable in Windows 10, I hope the disappointment doesn't be on Gears 4 I hope it gets released on pc, I will play it using my laptop :/

    I hope this happens :) well, because…

  17. Pin Achievements in Windows 10 Xbox App

    Would love the ability to track and tag achievements on my phone or other device. A good start would be the ability to "pin" achievements in the Xbox app for Windows 10.

    [Mod edit: Title changed from "Enhanced achievement tracking across devices."]

  18. Xbox one on Windows support for steering wheel and controller accessories headset/keyboard

    Driver support for Microsoft Xbox headsets when plugged into an Xbox one controller paired with Windows 10 Xbox app. Forza 6 thrustmaster steering wheel "support" via usb 2.0 plugged directly into Windows 10 PC. Currently there's no support for PC pairing within the Xbox app. I use my laptop to stream Xbox one to my 42" tv in another room.

  20. Build the NXOE (New Xbox One Experience) into the Xbox App as a "console" mode for PC players

    As an avid PC gamer iv'e become very familiar with Steam and it's services, however, their lack of support is going to be their downfall. Steam's Big Picture Mode is a VERY handy feature for those of use with our PCs on big screen TV sets, but they seem to be ignoring request for simple features like backgrounds or color changes. If the Xbox team could render BPM useless by creating a nice Xbox(like) interface into the app with full controller support, resolution and ratio support (4k, 3440/2560x1440, 16:9,17:9,21:9, etc), ability to play our local music AND videos or movies,…
