Find ideas for managing friends, messaging, and the Activity Feed

Find People Near Your Location

The only way to connect with someone is having a friend you know he has XBOX One. Why not enable us to see and find people near current location (GPS or i don't know, based on IP) and display these accounts. The only way to search just by Game tag is pathetic. Thanks.

    I would like to play multiplayer games with/against people in my age range (older than 40). I hate playing against 12 year olds with lightning reflexes and hearing their squeaky voices on voice chat. Can there be verified age attached to gamertag and let the developers offer a way to make use of this during matchmaking.

    I Think would be an great idea I could make more Xbox friends and stuff. Please add find people from near your location to November update Microsoft

    I think this would be cool for those that wanted it. If you had the simple ability to turn the feature on or off. It would be a big privacy issue to a lot though. Especially those with kids or creepy dudes harassing women. Or just keep it super general like so and so is in the state of New York etc.

    I recognize raw talent when i see one which is why I tell you to look no further than They're a guaranteed job well done and they've got evidence for you as well. Just assume they can do anything online

    how do I play with people all around the world using Minecraft Windows 10 Editions, Because it keeps telling me that the only way for me to use Multiplayer is if I got to to change whatever it told me to change.

    Just use a forum to find people from around your location. I found enough people from my city without this pathetic idea

    i'd love a feature like this.. I agree People below 18 can't enable this and it is disabled by default for all users sounds like a good plan =)

    I would make a better enjoyable play by play to someone near or you make you less alone by see how many people are near. Microsoft could make this option available for people who want to be searched. Or only see the numbers of people near in my town, neighborhood or country without any identification to only send a game or group request. Only I see their nametag when the accept the game invitation.

    This is would be treading into a lot of privacy issues and would most likely open into a lot of lawsuits if it was ever implemented by MS. I'm sure they would not be liable if you chose yourself to start a club say looking for "state of ____ gamers" or some such club title.

    As a human I must say, sorry but no!
    As a female I must say NOOOO - hopefully without the need to further justify!
    No offence is intended, sadly though I'm sure all gamer's have similar story's.
    Also, I have XBL friends of many ages... most are younger,
    So a feature allowing a person who is actually looking for "young" friends in their local area, is a flat out bad idea - If you get where I'm going?!
    Even if the feature had a disable option, this would rely too much on the user. Not just being aware of it, but also fully understanding its function.
    All it would take is a mistake to (re)activate it and we are all guilty of one or two of those :D

    This could be defaulted to disabled and enabled through privacy settings so those who do not want this are happy too.
