  1. Let us change recording FPS on Game DVR

    Some people like to record 60 fps other 30.This is the kind of change that would make people take xbox dxr seriously as a recording tool.

  2. Original Xbox Emulator for Windows 10 Xbox App

    I think it would be great if Microsoft could develop an official Xbox emulator for Windows. If they made an add free emulator that ran well I would be more than happy to purchase it. Who agrees?

  3. Transfer Games for Windows Live games over to Windows 10

    Make GFWL-games work natively with Xbox on Windows 10.
    Example: Let me accept/send game invites to a match in Halo 2 by answering a Notification. It would be great if you don't have to be in-game to Accept either.

    PS: Maybe you could make it possible to buy GFWL-games through the Windows 10 Store.

  4. 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…

  5. 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!

  6. 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…

  7. Direct connect your Xbox One to a Windows 10 Device via Ethernet Bridge

    I would LOVE to see a way to just connect an ethernet cable between an Xbox One and a Windows 10 PC / Laptop without a router and 'stream' an Xbox One Console like that.

    So, one end of the ethernet cable goes into the Xbox One Console and the other end of the cable goes into the WIndows 10 PC / Laptop. No router, no interference of any other apps / down- or uploads.

    Direct connection: 100% quality !

  8. Integrate the Xbox Dashboard into Windows 10

    Have the Xbox One Dashboard work with PC. (This includes controller support for apps like Hulu). This would end the Steam Machines and I really want this feature. I have been requesting it since the feedback opened.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Allow third party controllers/wheels when game streaming

    When streaming xbox games to pc's using win 10, allow players to use third party controllers and racing wheels on said pc. I guess a better solution to this would be the official support of third party controllers/wheels directly to the xbox one; but this will be an excellent alternative.! Tell me your thoughts on this idea below.

  14. Play Xbox 360 games on PC

    Also conecting your xbox controller to your pc would also be good

    [Mod edit: Title changed from "Make you play xbox 360 games on your windows ten. Now it is only compatiable with xbox 1" to clarify that the idea is to be able to play Xbox 360 games directly from the PC without streaming from the Xbox One.]

  17. Stream just the Audio - So we can play it through any speaker!

    As we all know, the Xbox One doesn't support many speakers.

    However, computers support pretty much all of them.

    Streaming just audio doesn't have much latency, so this is a feasible idea.

    My PC has a full speaker set-up, and I'd love to be able to play my games audio through it, so that I am not using my monitors built-in speakers.

    Please can you give us the option to just stream audio, too? :)

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
