  1. 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."]

  2. Windows 10 TV App

    This is likely going to be developed into Windows 10 in the future however it is reasonable to recommend early on. It would be a very unique feature to allow the Windows 10 computer to access the Xbox one as a client and be served the information coming from the cable box connected to the console. Basically a stream of the existing TV app on the Xbox One. This essentially would allow a user at a windows 10 pc to connect to his/her console on the network and watch tv from their computer. With more and more homes becoming aware…

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. "Windows Record That" to record gameplay on PC

    On PC let us use an enabled mic to record the last 30 secs of gameplay using a voice command just like with Xbox One and Kinect. This could also be "Cortana Record That", in addition all voice commands could be brought over to Windows like "snap friends" "un-snap" etc

    This is easier than hitting "Windows Key + G" to record as the windows key is disabled by some games or the user might have mapped "G" to some other custom function

  9. 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."]

  10. Assign different keyboard commands to Xbox One Elite Controller paddles

    In the windows 10 Xbox accessories App, instead of being able to assign any button on the controller to the paddles it would be ace if i could also combine keyboard commands to the paddles as if they were an independent key/button.

  11. 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

  12. 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. 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.

  16. Ability to balance game/chat audio using Stereo Headset adapter when streaming to PC

    It doesn't work... You can only adjust the volume using the adapter, but not balance between chat and game. Need an udpate!

  17. Show users' online statuses on PC to Xbox Live users via the console

    That would be great if Xbox players can see what PC users are up to while they are signed in on their PCs.
