  1. mixer removal option

    Not that anything will ever happen, but I want a option to remove this crap you guys call mixer. I do not stream nor do I watch streamers.
    I play video games, Now I have another useless tab that was forced onto me without a way to get rid of it.
    stop forcing these gimicks onto people that have no use of them.

    Make them downloadable apps so if people want them they can download them at their hearts content.

  2. please add Dolby Vision playback on Xbox One X

    Microsoft has clearly shown that they want us to pay a premium price for "the most powerful console" ever. They continue to speak about HDR and 4k. Why is there no mention of support for Dolby Vision. This is clearly superior to HDR10. When they tout such processing power and tech specs, why do we not get this feature. $500 is alot to ask for something that is not nearly as cutting edge as advertised. MICROSOFT....PLEASE ADD DOLBY VISION SUPPORT!!!!!

  3. Spotify/Pandora Music through Xbox Chat Headset

    It would be a cool idea to have a music service through your chat headset, and you can toggle which sound mode you want (Music or Voice Chat), and have it snapped on the side with the music player options (Play, Pause, Rewind, Fast-Forward, Shuffle, etc)

  4. Add back the pinning of TV Shows within apps to preview again before update goes public.

    Basically in the newest preview, you can no longer pin shows within apps anymore, please add this feature back.

  5. 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.

  9. .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!

  12. 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.

  13. YouTube 60fps playback

    The YouTube app lacks 60fps playback. Other devices can playback at 60fps just fine. The iOS app, the HTML5 web version, PlayStation 4, and smart TVs play supported YouTube videos at 60fps, but the Xbox One does not.

    It is very possible for the Xbox One to process 60fps YouTube videos. In fact, you can use the Microsoft Edge app and watch 60fps YouTube videos on YouTube's website. This is not desireable since there already exists an Xbox One YouTube app and the playback via Edge is not perfect (frames, fullscreening, etc. think Edge app is a full PC browser…

  14. More video app snapping

    I'd like more video apps to snap. All I can really watch while I play is YouTube. I'd like Netflix, Hulu and Xbox movies & tv to be able to snap

  17. Add YouTube Livestreaming

    You should be able to livestream to YouTube and not only twitch. Ps4 does this and Xbox should too. It makes it easier to grow on YouTube.

  18. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. 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!
