Option to disable Suggested New Friends

Can this be removed please. I feel like this is a waste of space and honestly do not see any use for it. I could see if this was a social network and people wanted to see suggested new friends. But I don't think everyone will grow fond of random people hitting them up and possibly annoying them due to the suggested friends update. If not removed can we have an option under settings to come up as incognito for suggested friends please thank you.

    Now the trend is to get popular broadcaster friend suggestions. I don't want to see any of this please let me turn it off.

    Get this useless garbage out of the app, this is not fb or some other social media crap, so lose the harassment and constant intrusion for social interactions with people we have ZERO desire to ever know

    Please let us turn this off. In the Xbox App, the "Suggestions" should be at the bottom or able to be turned off.

    I don't understand the logic of xbox, why xbox think that is great and NORMAL to intentionally spam u to add some random unknown people or streamers to your friend list And latter make it almost impossible to remove them from your friends list .WHY there is no approval or way to disable those suggestion??????

    Also, notice how they've NEVER considered removing this, even after years of ZERO SUPPORT and only complaining about it? They don't care what the people have to say - which reinforces my earlier comment...

    They're communists. Microsoft is full of Liberal Socialists that want control over every aspect of your gaming experience. You just have to try to ignore their dumb ***, stupid "suggestion" programming, and block as much information as possible since they're still bound by a few Republican laws to abide by our wish to stop them from snooping on our every move. Disgusting. This is why PC gaming is so much better. Unfortunately not every game title is also on PC.

    this suggestion has been on here for almost 2 years. If they haven't removed these god-forsaken suggestions yetyou can be assured that they're not going to get ever get removed. there's been suggestions in the past 5 years I would say that had hundreds of yes votes and still are ignored by Microsoft. so don't expect any results.

    Yes, please remove this stupid feature. I do not appreciate random accounts messaging me and not getting the hint that I don't want to talk to them. I work all day and would like to enjoy my gaming without receiving friend requests or messages. I am half tempted to convert to PS4 because of this annoying feature. So X box I repeat, please remove this useless feature.

    Needs the advertisements removed as well. I want my list of games. Maybe some friends that are online. Done.

    Please give us full customization over our own home screen. I can decide whether I want to see games on sale or not and who I want to send friend invites to.

    Remove *all* of the suggestions. Just one square for GWG and one square for sales. I don't care for tips, I don't care for suggested friends.
