  1. .mkv files should support subtitles

    .mkv files will not play with subtitles on xbox one. How am I supposed to watch anime? It works fine on PS4. Fix this!

  2. Ignore the word "The" when sorting purchased games/films

    Some films in the Films and TV app ignore the word "The" when sorting alphabetically. I would like all Films to behave this way. Additionally, this would be useful when sorting your games

  3. Readd youtube snap.

    Please readd youtube snap. I loved watching videos, listening to music, or just listening to a audio book on YouTube while playing games like World Of Tanks, Ark Survival Evolved, and Grand Theft Auto. It gave you something to do while waiting on a game to load or when none of your friends are online. Please readd this feature.

  5. Xbox video app for Android and ios

    It would be awesome if there were an Xbox Video app for mobile phones. Playstation has one, why not Xbox? For users who buy a lot of movies and TV shows on Xbox or Windows 10, it would be perfect to have the option to stream said videos on your mobile.

  7. Xbox App on macOS/OSX

    Please consider doing an Xbox Remote app similar to the PS4 Remote Play app, for macOS devices.

    This would be great for streaming to a MacBook, much like the PS4 Remote app.

    My only way to play on my mac is through Bootcamp or Parallels. It would be great for native support on the macOS side with it's own dedicated resources!

    Thanks for all you guys do!

  9. Netflix party

    This was a Game Changer, by far one of the best things to happen to Xbox was the Netflix Party, it was so cool laughing, crying, and hating scared at the movie when me and my friends were hundred's of miles away! Please bring this back!

  10. TV PIP

    Enable the ability to have PIP for those of us who enjoyed snapping TV while gaming. That feature alone set Xbox apart from the other consoles.

  11. Game DVR

    The apps called Game DVR and Upload Studio need to be updated. Both of these apps, although are cool, need to be updated with bug fixes and new features. The Game DVR should have a setting that should allow you to record with live commentary. The app should also give you a choice whether to let you have live commentary with only your audio, with both the party's and your audio, with game chat and your audio, and vice-versa. This app should also let you record for as long as you want and if not, then it should let you…

  16. Media Player should support Background Music

    Now that background music is finally out, Media Player needs to be updated to support it. To match the functionality of the Xbox 360 we need DLNA support as well as local support (and it would also need to rip CD's, but I don't see that coming anytime soon). I know someone has made the Simple Background Music Player, but it doesn't support folders or DLNA, so please Microsoft update Media Player so it supports Background Music!

  17. Allow Keyboard and Mouse support for the Xbox interface while streaming

    I would love to be able to use a mouse and keyboard to navigate the interface while streaming. I routinely remote in to my PC and stream my console to install a new game from work, but I have to remote into two PC's to do so. One has the screen streaming the other just has the controller option selected in the Xbox app. Even just a controller overlay would be great if a controller isn't detected.

  20. Media Player

    Bring the background music support that will becoming to Groove Music to Xbox One local media player, through both attached drive and DNLA. This will give Xbox users who either don't have great internet connection or are on a limited monthly data allowance more options than just streaming music.
