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.

    Without snap Scorpio will only be a PS4 Pro on steroids. No thank you.

    SNAP OR Replacement MUST be brought back immediately. The removal of this feature is UNACCEPTABLE

    Maybe they could bring it back, but allow people to choose whether or not to have it running in the background? That way it would be the player's choice if the performance was affected.

    Bring back or allow us to choose to accept the "reduced performance"...

    My family never experienced a "Lag" that impacted our happiness.
    Removing the feature certainly did!

    I'm not voting for this, I just want to comment and ask why so many people want a feature back that was detrimental to the performance of the console. I understand that it was a feature that many people used, but it was also a major cause of the slowness and lag on the dashboard. I would like an alternative, yes, but not at the expense of a laggy or slow dashboard.

    I want to complain about the new update that took the option SNAP, window that allowed to play watching TV. Without it, xbox one loses its usefulness to me and thousands of people.

    I love the ability to have music in the background.. but I NEED to have a "snap" feature to watch TV or Netflix or something like that in the background while games are played. It was a feature I used almost daily!

  • dNakO8dNakO8 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    What! No more snap!? And this home button thing, I actually liked having the TV playing in the smaller screen while I browsed other tabs or to simply lower the volume on it. Bad move....
