  1. What was that ?

    Notifications have the same sound; either when you're signing in/out, messages, party invites, game/app installed and other. I think it would be nice to set a certain sound to a notification so if you're away from your xbox but hear the notification, you know if it;s a message or a game download. I did also think about different coloured notifications but I think a sound change would be more effective. Also I am partially sighted and this would help me as I have to go closer to the notification to read what it is. Thanks for any comments :)

  2. (Re)Move "Add New Content" Content Block

    This applies to the Latest Xbox One Update Preview:

    I'd suggest removing the "Add New Content" content block from the user's home screen, even though it sits at the very bottom of the content list. The point of the UI customization is to set it the way you like, and not being able to remove this item gets in the way of that.

    I'd suggest moving it to the content block options menu (that is entered by pressing Y in the home screen, and a user can rearrange/delete content blocks), where it can safely be accessed without forcing itself into…

  3. Add a reply button and a dislike button on feeds

    In feeds people are simply putting messages but no one can actually respond to one another making the conversations between one another seem unorganized and makes a simple discussion impossible unless you message that person directly.

    A dislike button also needs to be added as just a simple method of criticism, but the main feature we need in feeds is a reply button so people can actually conversate with each other about either a game they like or don't like.

  6. Add multiple sets of Pins

    The Pins feature is a great, however it could be expanded to better cater to power users. Currently I have one big list that all Pins go into, however it'd be great to have multiple lists.
    For example, I'd have lists such as "New & never played", "Couch Co-op", "Play next", "Achievement Hunting", "Video apps" etc.

    I'd suggest that user experience would be: Add to Pins, then if there are multiple lists, select which list to add to. This would allow casual users to keep the one list of Pins with minimal fuss/change, but power users could add chosen Pins…

  7. Improve the Home Experience

    After purchasing an Xbox One X, I was impressed by the build quality and the horsepower, but was incredibly disappointed once I saw the home UI. With it being a premium product, I did not expect to see the UI scaled down to 1080p, advertisements plastered throughout, and forced content (Mixer, Community, and Entertainment tabs).

    Please provide us, consumers of premium Xbox hardware and Xbox Live Gold services, the option to:

    1) Set our UI to 4K
    2) Remove advertisements from our home screen
    3) Remove tabs for content that we do not have an interest in

    There is an…

  8. Keep AA batteries for the controller

    While many people believe a built-in battery for the controller is a better option, the reality says otherwise. As someone that values the long-term use of my devices, I understand that putting a non-removable battery pack into a device essentially gives it an expiration date. I love being able to stay wireless 100% of the time by swapping batteries instead of having to plug in.

  11. Xbox elite extended warranty

    Xbox Elite controllers require a further extended warranty, especially due to hardware faults regarding the paddle usage. This issue has arose on my last 2 controllers with the paddles not working after a period of time in which microsoft refuse to do anything due to the warranty. overall the elite is an expensive and unusable controller after a period of usage

  13. Co-op horror game

    A co-op horror game; A horror game played by two people on the same xbox.

    For many years I have been anticipating the moment that microsoft makes a co-op horror game. I know that many people enjoy the scare by themselves-But isn't it even MORE fun to enjoy it with someone else? Now sure, its a lot harder to create such a detailed game compatible for two players, but think of the amount of people that would enjoy this. No one likes having to take turns when you die in "Friday the 13th" or "Hello Neighbor". It just ruins that…

  14. Actually review what someone is reported for and not just take away their access

    I have just received a notification that I will lose my XBL privileges for one day because of someone reporting my profile to have an inappropriate "gamerpic"'. This is ridiculous that this has happened because there is nothing inapporiate about anything on my profile. It was a picture of the Anonymous Mask/Guy Fawkes. Last I checked that is not a copyrighted image, nor anything negative... its a MASK people. All I ask is that you people actually review your compliants and not revoke someone who has spent their hard earned money to relax and use your devices.

    co-op with crossplatforming, basically to make an xbox one user able to play with a ps4 user in the campaign co-op in games..for example farcry 4 or the new farcry 5

  20. A gifting system that actually works

    Am I the only one wondering why the Gifting feature for the Xbox store apparently ONLY WORKS for user's in the same country?

    It's so stupid! I purchased a digital copy of Titanfall 2 Ultimate Edition as a gift for my friend. He tells me that he can't redeem it because he lives in Canada and I live in the UK. So I had to go through an over 30 minute long chat with an Xbox Support staff to try and fix this and get my friend the game I paid money for!

    We couldn't fix it. The only thing…
