  1. Add a Dislike Button to The Activity Feed

    I think it would be really helpful with a dislike button for posts, Video Clips and Screenshots so we can voice our opinions without commenting because we voice our opinion and they end up blocking us and deleting our comment and i thought it would be helpful with a dislike button probably in shape of a broken heart or thumbs down

  2. Ability to Invite Someone to Your Game When their Message Is Highlighted in the 'Messages' Tab

    Halo streamers often run 'subscriber games', in which they play with individuals who are subscribed to their Twitch channel. This means they always have to spend an entire night sending out dozens and dozens of game invites ('Invite to Game'), whenever they wish to invite a new group of players.

    These streamers use their Xbox messages as a queue for subscribers to get invited to these custom games. They see a message, hover over it, press A to see the message, click on 'More' to get a menu, then go to 'View profile', and finally, 'Invite to a game'.

  3. Please remove suggested friends and random posts on activity feed

    Removal or option to turn off suggested friends and random posts on activity feed. It's supposed to be a personal co sole experience so I cannot understand why you would want these options switched on to flood your dash

  4. Let Twitter Followers Find/Follow You on Xbox One

    Same with the Facebook integration for finding Friends, would be great if we could connect Twitter the same way so that our Twitter followers could follow us on Xbox.
    p.s. I know right now there's Twitter connectivity in the Xbox Beta app for sharing but this is for finding Friends and following people.

  6. Request party invite button on friends profile

    I think it would be cool to have a button added to the chat option of your friends profile that would say request party invite for when they're in a invite only party instead of shooting them a message saying invite instead you could simply hit this button your friend would get a notification saying so-and-so would like to join the party

  7. See friends wallpapers instead of colours when viewing profile.

    This will be pretty cool, I mean sure the colours thing works but it's kind of lame, I think seeing what people have as their profile bakcground would be much more interesting and unique compared to the 6 colours we can choose from.

  9. Expand the 'Message' function

    It would be cool if you could also send a 'Gaming session' proposal to friends, where you suggest date(s) for meeting online to play.

    The proposal should include fields like:
    - Headline
    - Recipients
    - Proposed date
    - Game to play
    - Comments field

    When the proposal has been send, recipients can choose accept, tentative or decline.
    Recipients should also be able to propose an alternative date and/or add a comment.

    All involved parties should be able to see who has accepted, declined etc and see all comments and any alternative proposed dates.

    Reason for idea: Having kids/family and a…

  12. Increase the Friend limit from 1060 to 2000

    While not everyone will befriend 2000 people, this should be an option for anyone that's very social on Xbox's One social network. One that would help the users gain more followers and keep in contact/up to date with more Xbox members.

  14. Mark whether a message has been viewed by its recipient

    When we send someone a message, and they haven't read it yet, let us know by putting a RED mark on it. And when they do read it, let us know by putting a GREEN mark on it.

    And I be sharing clips with friends, and I be wondering if they have seen it yet. Y'all can let us know by putting a RED mark if they haven't seen it; and putting a GREEN mark if they have seen it. I don't like sending them a message the next day, asking "Have you saw my video yet?" Y'all can let…

  15. How to stop spam? Users with 0 Gamerscore are not allowed to send messages on Xbox One

    Lately Xbox users receiveing too many SPAM, like "WIN iPad, iPhone, Xbox, etc.. go to this URL to win blaah blaah".

    This is kind of annoying now. Because you can REPORT about these spammers, and block them. But next week they make new user and start spamming again. It's almost impossible to block them, but Microsoft can make these spammers life harder.

    One very simple solution how to do that is adding new rule, that everyone who have gamerscore 0 or less than 500 can not send messages. And with gamerscore less than 1000 they can not add links/URLS in…

  16. Make Appear Offline work the way it did on Xbox 360

    On the Xbox 360, it's impossible to tell when a person is appearing offline because it actually showed how long the person been "offline."
    However, on the Xbox One, its obvious you're appearing offline because it says 'Offline' besides your gamertag and that sucks if you're trying to hide from someone lol. Give us back that little 360 feature

    [Mod edit: Title changed from "Why is it obvious that I'm appearing offline?" in order to clarify that the idea is to make the Appear Offline feature work more like a similar feature seen on the Xbox 360.]

  19. Remove friends who Remove me

    There should be an option for this.
    Im not going so far as to ask for notification for this (everyone knows how much drama will ensue)
    But I think the friends list would be a little more manageable if it could remove certain people from my list should they remove me.

  20. Friends: The games where we met tags

    This is something that I (along with a lot of my online friends) think MUST happen! This new feature should be applied to each & every friend on your friend/followed list.

    If you could add an option (nothing fancy) that allows you have a tag to say where you met one of your online friends, it would be the best thing ever! For example - I've made a lot of online friends that I've played with, but I don't remember who helped me in Destiny, or GTA or whichever. Adding an option that allows me to see that I met…
