  1. Multiple home Xbox Ones

    I think that Microsoft should allow a player to set up to two home Xbox Ones. I know I'm not the only person with this idea, and many forums have agreed with me. Myself, being a teenager with divorced parents, have two Xboxes: One at my mom's house, and one at my dad's. I use each of them equally, but the other Xbox is used by another person just as much. If I could set both of these to be my home Xbox, then when somebody starts playing a game, it wouldn't sign me out of the game I'm playing,…

  2. Bring pin feature back to the store

    I used it as a "wishlist" for games I was interested in and wanted to buy, but couldn't at the moment. Now I'm forgetting what cool games I wanted to buy when I'm looking for something new to play. Also, more pin space?

  3. Bring back snap with Xbox One X

    Bring back snap as a selling feature of the Xbox One X.
    1.) If the One X is the most powerful console of all time it should have no trouble doing what my 1st Gen Xbox One could do.
    2.) If we are being greedy about this, which you are a corporation so it just makes sense, you can entice users with this feature that they can't get with their One S.

  4. Customable Organization Folders

    A way to create nameable folders to enter a custom mix of games/apps into. The folders should be able to be pinned. It would clear up the pins as one folder could hold multiple games/apps. Example: (Shooter Folder - Gears of War 4, Battlefield 1, Call of Duty Infinite Warfare) ; (Entertainment - Netflix, HBO GO, Hulu, Youtube)

  6. More Customizable options for Thumbsticks on Elite Controller

    Can we please get more customizable options added to the Elite controllers thumbsticks. As far as I am aware you are only able to swap the left thumbstick and the right one. I am primarily an FPS player and I use LEGACY thumbsticks. Sadly amazing FPS games like Battlefront, Wolfenstein, DOOM, Bioshock, Far Cry don't give the player the option to select Legacy thumbsticks in their menus. COD, Destiny and Halo among others all allow for this setting. I really don't understand why it's so difficult for other developers to do the same. If we could get more options added…

  7. Google home compatibility

    Enable the xbox to link with a google home or Alexa, thus permitting the user to send voice commands to the xbox without the need of a kinect. Maybe just simple commands as "ok google, turn on xbox". The commands already exist for cortana on the xbox and would not need to be created. Easiest solution to enable this feature (by my simple mind) would be to add IFTTT compatibility to the xbox. Thanks!

  8. Universal controller Settings and Media Player (music) active in background on XBOXONE, basically -- step up from 360 not down

    Seriously, The 360 had the Universal settings for favourite controls in game, (Invert Y Axis). Why is it not available on the Xbox One? I have to go into every single game and change it manually?

    Also i JUST learned, that I can not run music on my console WHILE playing a game!! While this could be done on the X360 in 2007 (Maybe before i dunno this is when i bought it) why can't it be done on ONE??

    You have to snap the app! so my 55 inch TV becomes a 32 Inch TV for playing games! in…

  9. PC to Xbox streaming

    Ok, the Xbox to PC streaming is excellent and can be a joy. However, I have games on the PC I'd love to play in the living room. Why not stream the other way around?

    So mouse and keyboard control would be required on a few games perhaps (does the Xbox support this yet...?) but many the controller would be fine.

    It's not as though the tech isn't there already. Look at the Steam Link.

    Oh, and this is pie in the sky wishing, but the ability to use the Steam Controller would also be cool.

  10. Xbox App for Mac OS

    Being able to access Xbox through Mac OS will take away lots of stress of having buying a whole new operating system.

  11. Options to Pin

    Prior to recent update you could pin any game from the store to your dashboard. This made it easy to have quick access to games you may want to buy in the future! That option has been removed and would like it restored. It was almost like a "wish list" function, and now games I may be interested will never get played... Because so many new games are added continuously I'll never remember the ones I may have wanted.

  13. Move Game DVR Clips & Images to USB.

    My internet is painfully slow right now, but I have a bunch of clips that I want to edit together on PC. Uploading them to either Xbox Live or OneDrive is slow. It would be nice if we could move them to a USB stick instead of having to rely on the internet to move clips off of an Xbox One. This would also be helpful when moving house as phone lines (and by extension, internet access) can takes several days to set up, or when phone lines in a certain area are down due to various reasons.

  14. pause download in queue

    I have a queue with a lot of games to download.

    I want the current game in queue downloading keep active, but I want to pause all another items on the list...

    But, I cant pause games/apps who are not downloading (are in the line for download)...

    Then, I have to pause the mains download, wait for the next start and pause then, wait for the next and pause... And, at the end, unpause the only game that I really want to download.

    Please, help me putting a way to pause a download not active, gut on the queue list…

  16. Ability to switch between snapped apps.

    It would be nice to switch between snapped apps, as far as which one is the main and snapped app.

    For example, I was on the WWE app and watching the NBA finals in snap mode. And certain time I would go back in forth far as which app was the main app, but while doing this the main app would close and then I would have to snap it.

    So if we could switch via "voice" or the "View Button" would be cool.

  18. Bring back gestures

    Pretty much what it says, i know others have posted about the same topic but i guess we need 100,000 to post about the same thing before they decide to "add" what they removed from something we all bought....the craziest thing is "well it just wasnt used very much" so add a switch to turn it on and off, not remove it for people...i really dont care if only 1 person used it, thats 1 person who spent 400 on a console sold as "better with kinect" not only do you drop support for it virtually, you remove key features…

  19. Folder Support

    Add folder support for your games library. For example I own 2 Tomb Raider games, 3 Wolfenstein games and 5 Gears of War games. You could put them into a folder for each game, reducing 10 games into 3 folders.

  20. Be able to make Child accounts into Adult Accounts.

    Currently, we have to wait until the child account reaches the legal age of majority (based on the information initially added with the account's creation)

    This is a huge pain if you only have one Live account that happens to be a "Child Account" as we must sign into a different account to change our settings.

    Another issue is that child accounts with Xbox Live MUST have an "Adult Account" on the console in order to be able to use Live.
