  1. Make the Xbox App show your full Xbox Library

    Make a new area where we can see all of our games. Separate it by plataform, like:

    - Xbox 360 games
    - Xbox One games
    - PC games
    - All

    Even if you can just do it for digital games, do it!

  2. 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…

  3. The ability to invite Players to the Xbox Preview Program via the Xbox App

    It would be a great idea to implement the option to invite players to the Preview Program, via the Xbox App.

    This saves the hassle of having to switch on my console just to invite friends to the program (as I receive their requests via the app).

  4. Xbox Snap to Windows 10 Device

    Xbox Snap to Device Idea by @BAMrin

    It would be nice, if we can snap an App to any Windows 10 Device in the local Network. Picture here: http://www.xboxdynasty.de/Xbox-One/screenshot,Xbox-One,88085.html

    Instead of using the Xbox One Screen and make it smaller, why not use a 2nd Screen in the Network? Maybe a Tablet or Laptop. So you can say "Xbox Snap Twitch to Tablet" and the App will be snapped to the Device with all functions. And on top, a friend can use Twitch/Chat while you concentrate on playing.

    Phil Spencer and Mike Ybarra just said it's possible and a cool…

  5. Use the classic Achievement popping sound on Windows 10 Xbox Games

    It's great that you're bringing Xbox gaming to the Windows 10 Store. I've enjoyed playing Xbox games like Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition, Project Spark, and Halo: Spartan Strike on my Windows 10 PC. However, I noticed that, unlike Xbox on all other platforms (Xbox One, Xbox 360, Xbox on Windows 8, Xbox on Windows Phone 8), the classic 'bah-doop' sound that plays when an achievement pops is not on Windows 10. Instead, it's a generic sound effect that is used for all other notifications on Windows 10 too. Please replace it with the classic Xbox achievement popping sound--it's the most…

  6. Give us Windows 10 enabled modding on the Xbox One

    I love that you guys are starting to integrate Windows 10 and Xbox. You have a huge opportunity to allow the PC and Xbox communities to mix in terms of modding. Something Xbox gamers (and console gamers in general) have been wanting for years is the ability to install mods onto their Xbox games. This capability would be a massive selling point. All consoles can claim certain hardware advantage, certain exclusives, and certain other miscellaneous benefits -- no console can claim access to mods. Obviously there are issues of compatibility, but I'm positive you guys are up for the challenge.…

  8. Allow Xbox App on Windows 10 to Work Offline

    When the internet connection goes down, I can no longer login to Xbox app on Windows 10. I cannot connect to my local Xbox One, I cannot Stream, I cannot see Achievements.

    This is a big problem for people who like to travel with their Xbox, please fix this.

  9. Bring Xbox One Dashboard to Windows 10

    Update Windows 10 Xbox App user interface to be exactly like Xbox One's dashboard. Steam has BigPicture mode, Windows 10 has Xbox Dashboard mode!

  10. 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,…

  11. Windows 10 Xbox App Party Sound Input and Output Settings

    Allow us to select the input and output settings on the Xbox App. This is mainly for party chat. For those of us who use multiple sound cards and a mixer cannot split out the sound and the party members hear themselves talking. Allowing us to select the input and output like other chat clients (ex. Skype) would be great!!!

  12. 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!

  13. Share the desktop background, theme, colour, etc. between devices

    As Windows 10 is going to be one platform, it would be great to allow the users to have the option to use their theme colour, transparency, patterns, and desktop backgrounds to be used across all devices using Windows 10.

  14. 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.

  16. Make Game Hubs more prominent in the Xbox App by adding a tab

    I think it would be nice to have a tab for itself on the left side on the xbox app for the games you follow. That would make more sense and be easier to discover the game hubs, instead of going into achievements to find it.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Adjust game and party chat audio output in Xbox App to allow for use of headset and speakers

    There should be more audio options to allow for customization of how the audio playback works. like having game playback through speakers and party/game chat through the headset.

    [Mod edit: Title changed from "the gamechat, and xbox audio shouldn't playback through the mono headset when game streaming."]

  20. Ability to disable the Suggested Friends section in the Xbox App

    On the Xbox app, I constantly see myself hitting the 'X' to close the suggested friends section. It's not a big deal, but I would like to see the option to stop displaying it.
