  2. Partner with Amazon!!!!!!!!!

    Let's face it... Your movie store, groove, tv store is not up to speed.. I'm sure there are some who purchase from these but personally I think they are a mess. I buy a movie with bonus content and my library is now littered with crap where I can't even find a movie. Groove is poorly designed and who really buys TV shows?
    PARTNER WITH AMAZON!
    Make their Amazon Video app AMAZING. Something similar to the Apple iTunes movie experience with bundles and KEEP THE DARN MOVIES AND BONUS CONTENT TOGETHER!
    Amazon is making a new music subscription service! GET…

  3. Amazon Music app!!!

    While working out partnering with Amazon, create an full featured Amazon Music app that runs in the backround off of user's Prime Library, and on board the HDD. That simple backround music player that just came out is just a band-aid on a severed limb. It can only recognize up to 200 songs in a flat folder off a USB thumb drive. Imagine the extra platform for possibly buying music through XBOX! Both your headquarters are practically in the same county.

  7. X1

    Please Microsoft overthink your idea of killing the snap feature it is one of the best features of the x1 to be able to snap TV or twitch or any other while being able to game or to browse in the web. What are you doing you are turning the xbox ui into a featureless ps4 ui. Please bring it back I heard its gone with the new upcoming ui. Also a picture in picture mode is bad too because pip works like an overlay, the snap feature is much better in my opinion.

  8. Fix Microsoft Edge!!!

    Microsoft Edge is the WORST browser ever because of it bugs and glitches and annoying ads! Microsoft! You lied to us! You told us that Microsoft Edge Beta was finished but it looks like it not! Microsoft Edge is a huge failure and I really want it fixed! The keyboard in Microsoft Edge has a poor function. Plus, there are ads! I don't like ads but there too many ads! Microsoft Edge doesn't close tabs when you quit. I not happy, Microsoft.

    FIX MICROSOFT EDGE!

  10. Sharing clips to Twitter/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.

  11. Use Blue-ray Player Offline

    I think it's rather ridiculous to find out that Xbox won't let me watch a DVD when I'm offline.

    My tv and Internet service provider is doing maintenance, so we can't use the Internet or watch cable tv.

    So, we thought we'd start a new season on DVD only to find out that we need Internet to do so.

    Please support the use of the Blue-ray App offline!

  13. Partner with Sega again and bring either a Dreamcast and/or Saturn Emulator to the Xbox One

    Purchase Sega's rights to their older Console's brands and developer an Emulator for them on the Xbox One, much in the same way Sega themselves have done for the Genesis on Steam.

  14. Please Bring SNAP back!!!!!!

    Please bring SNAP back!
    I USED Snap every single day. It allowed me to watch TV or a movie and still be allowed the satisfaction of gaming. now I'm forced to choose between gaming or TV (movies or other features). This is a major step backwards. I see no reason why that feature was removed. I never had an issue with it. The removal of the SNAP feature has put a major dent in if not ruined my xbox experience. I thought the point of these updates was to improve the experience you have with the console and it's features;…

  15. Record longer on Game DVR

    A lot of people have epic Xbox gameplay that they would like to share, be it a match on COD 3 or legendary loot in Borderlands 2.
    The problem is that Game DVR doesn't allow recording longer than 5 minutes. Many people move on to buying a screen capture card that costs over $100. A big percentage of gamers don't have the money or resources to shell out money for these capture cards, including me.
    I suggest that the max recording session should be up to one hour, instead of 5 minutes. Why one hour? When sharing footage we want…

  16. Snap Location

    I think when we opt to snap something our Xbox that we should have the option as to where. I propose we allow the, to snap an app, then the Xbox will highlight the sides top and bottom. Then we can simply use the D-pad to select where we want it snapped.

  17. Optional browsers

    I simply want the optional use of browsers such as Google chrome,Firefox, or Internet explorer and also can Microsoft/Xbox add an image downloader to the browser apps because i want a wallpaper on my xbox without having to use a usb stick or dnls/dlns idk how to spell that but it would still be nice to download wallpapers without any external devices.

  18. Please Do Not Remove Snap.

    I read that the team is considering removing the app. I love this app. I use it very frequently while gaming and find it to be an amazing addition to the console. It truly makes the Xbox One stand out, and was one of the primary reasons I chose XB1 as opposed to PS4.

    Playing movies on a media center via HDMI input while playing games is one of the strongest features of the console and I would be extremely disappointed if it was removed.

  19. YouTube as background music

    Sims background music has finally came it could be a lot more nicer for YouTube to be part of the background music program (you can use YouTube without snap and it could be a lot more easier if you connected your phone to the Xbox One)

  20. .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!
