  1. Replace Snapped Video Playback as a PiP Overlay

    Please give us this option. Whether a new pip or original snap. This was a system selling feature.

  2. Bring Back Snap (Instead of or In Addition to Overlays)

    Removing the Snap feature when it was a major selling point of the console is a step backwards. Allow all apps (including One Guide) to work in PiP mode with the new overlay feature, but also allow us to resize the game so we can place the PiP window in the empty space, replicating snap. Covering up part of the game is NEVER a good solution.

  3. Download games at certain times!

    Everyone doesnt have unlimited internet plan.
    But during a day there is some times that the plan is unlimited, for example during 1Am to 8Am.
    Add Scheduling for game downloads would help me to schedule my downloads to 1-8am

  5. Xbox updates

    Please make Console updates more like PC updates! Allow the Xbox to download updates in the background and when you've finished doing what you're doing/going to turn it off then let the Xbox to install it!

  6. warning when game is going to be closed

    Games will often automatically end when switching around with too many apps. This is especially true with the BC games. Some sorta pop up with a "warning, doing this will exit your current game." flag would be super handy.

  7. Xbox Modding Gallery

    Xbox Modding Gallery allows users to download mods for any game that is eligible. Fallout 4 is a good example, IF there was a gallery in the dashboard that enabled us to look up mods for our games, it would allow us to extend the life of some games as well as add additional custom content made by other players from PC or Xbox to make the game even more fun. Whether its a custom player model for GTA V, or maybe a viking ship for ARK: Survival Evolved, or even a giant cookie mod for Minecraft, this would be…

  8. Bring back snap

    The newest preview removed snap (and the rumor is it will be replaced with Picture in Picture). Please consider adding Snap back in as a feature for people that prefer that. I love being able to play a game while watching a show, but having that show cover up part of my game doesn't make any sense. I understand that some people don't like their game being resized, but there are some of us that do. Please make Snap an option again!

  9. Pin Franchise

    Simple Idea. I have 5 different Assassin Creed games. I'm not going to pin all 5 games as I would obviously run out of space on my Pin Board. Assassin Creed is just the most glaring case. I've also got 3 Battlefield titles, The Witcher, 2 and 3... And theses are just a few exemples. I would like to be able to pin a Franchise instead of a specific game. The way it would work is that when I select a pined franchise, a popup shows up and lets me select which specific title of a franchise I want to…

  12. Snap bring back

    Bring back snap. Don't get rid of it in new update. It's the only thing that made XB1 better than 360. Losing it would be hot garbage.

  13. Option to appear offline when signing in

    You are able to change your offline/online status while you are signed in, but this should also be possible before you sign in.

  14. Ripping CD's - RED FLAG

    So guess where going to have to do this until we get things right?

    As an Xbox one preview member I was excited to hear that we would be getting the ability to play music in the background like on xbox360. I guess I as misunderstood or the idea was just ignored.

    But when I and others asked for the ability to be able to play music in the background we the Xbox community meant to be able to do what the xbox360 was able to do which was to be able to insert our own music CD's into the…

  15. The Warriors

    Short and sweet... I really think "The Warriors" should be brought to Xbox one. I wouldn't even care if it had the same exact story line to be honest. It was a great game on Xbox and with the graphics upgraded to 1080p... Woooooo. Yeah... The Warriors.

  16. Dolby Vision HDR

    Support Dolby Vision HDR via a firmware update to all xboxes. DV only requires HDMI 1.4 and would allow owners of Dolby Vision TVs to use this superior video format that when coupled with Dolby Atmos delivers on the Home Dolby Cinema Experience.

  19. DTS-HD and DD True HD output through the HDMI IN port

    DTS-HD and DD True HD output through the HDMI IN port

    The situation is this: you have that Xbox One S and are enjoying 4k. You also want the highest quality of audio. But most receivers dont support 4k.

    This means you gotta either choose between high quality video or high quality audio. (DTS-HD and DD True HD)

    A lot of people dont use the HDMI in port as of now. Wouldnt it be nice to make a software update that allows the output of HDMI audio trough the HDMI in port?

    This way people are able to enjoy both…

  20. Fix Dolby Digital 5.1 over HDMI Lag

    I'm finding that when my Xbox One's audio is set to pass Dolby Digital 5.1 to my TV over HDMI, a noticeable lag is introduced. The sound comes through around 0.3ish seconds late. It may not seem like much, but it's enough to be very annoying.

    I have found this to be the case on both a Samsung and an LG TV. Both of these TVs accept Dolby Digital over HDMI from my Xbox 360 and from my Sky Q satellite box with absolutely no lag. This leads me to believe it is a bug in the Xbox One.

    If…
