Option to turn off suggested friends from the Xbox App on Windows 10
Please can we have the ability to turn off the suggested "social" elements that go beyond my friends list.
"Suggestions" - Guide/Friends & clubs
"Suggested for you" - Community/Activity Feed
"Popular now" - Community/Activity Feed
Adverts for feeds on the right hand side of the - Community/clubs and trending
Auto follow of purchased and played games - Community/Activity feed
I understand people appreciate these features and use them but I don't and never have.
The suggestions show people I have removed from my friends lists and a selection of random people that I share nothing in common with other than having played big triple A games.
I really want this. Now that you can Look for Group and have been able to send invites to people you meet in game since day one, these posts clutter up the game feed. I have zero interest in following people i don't know. I have even less interest in seeing what someone has built in Minecraft or thinks is "Cool" by way of GTA screen shots. This nonsense gets in the way of the things my actual friends and I have done. This was a poor addition and i would opt out immediately if I could.
Absolutely agree, I don't need you suggesting who my friends are.
How to vote twice for that?
But instead of a option, why not completely remove the feature altogether?
Just to elaborate on Friends and Activity Feed, there should be an unfollow option for friends that spam the feed with videos and screenshots. You got my vote
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. LET THIS HAPPEN. Phil Spencer and the rest of the crew allow this.
Yes, Xbox Live is not facebook.
Yes please! I hate the suggested friends in the feed and in my Friends list. I don't want to add random people.
Omg a 1000 times yes give us the choice please I pay a lot of money to Xbox every year please give me the choice !!!!!!
I agree too. Too many suggestions, and too many ads for a paid subscription service.
I want to opt IN to suggestions. I play predominantly single player games and campaigns and have no interest in the activity feed, groups, clans, or any other social sharing element. I just want to sit down with my slippers on and play some Witcher 3. Is that too much to ask?
100% agree and also want the same for the "Popular Now" section in the Community tab.

I agree with this 1000% yes over and over with rage every time I see "suggestions" forced on me. Please remove these entirely, or as vj4 said, include an option to disable this.
