  3. "Appear Offline" toggle available in Turn Off Menu.

    "What do you want to turn off?" menu, after holding the Xbox button, could display "Appear Offline/Online" toggle selection.

  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

  8. Expand Friends list on Xbox 360

    Hi,

    I reached the 100 friends limit a lot of time and I try to clean up every months, but it's hard and impossible. So many great friends. So I would like you to expand the friends limit to 200 on Xbox 360.

    thx

  9. 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'.

    Considering…

  10. Clicking on a game in the Friends Tab should open the Game Hub

    I would really like to see a change to the Friends Tab on Xbox One.

    There is currently a section in the Friends Tab that show what games my friends are playing and it's a pretty nice feature but it would nice if it actually opened the game hub of a game instead of opening the game in the Store. This would add a lot more use to the section and make it easier to see all friends who are playing that game instead of only a few of them.

  11. Tell us which friends have viewed our clips

    When you get a view on one of your game clips it would be nice to see which friends have viewed the clip. Show us which gamertags have viewed our game DVR clips

  12. Have something posted on the activity feed when you 100% a game

    Getting 100% on a game can be really difficult and I would like something more to show for it. Also give us the option that after it is posted to be able to pin it to our showcase,

  13. "Smart Tag" gamers in clips

    "Xbox record that!" Wouldn't it be awesome if it automatically recognized the specific gamertags in the clip and tags them to the video? This "Smart Tag" system would save other friends' time who don't care for clips unless it's relevant to them. But more importantly, we've all had a time in a game where something happened to us and became instantly mortified at the thought of others recording it. Now we would have a chance to know if it actually was recorded and laugh at the embarrassment or marvel at their feat! It could show up on other gamer's activity…

  14. Ability to send a message to ALL friends at ONCE, instead of 32 friends at a time.

    I like to inform my friends on certain things like, Games With Gold, or what was added with a recent game/xbox update. It's hard to do that when you can only send a message to 32 people at a time.

    - Make it so when I'm done typing my message I have the option to choose "Send to ALL FRIENDS."

  15. Request Hyperlinks in messages

    I'd like to be able to send hyperlinks in messages which can lead friends directly to items of interest.

    Hyperlinked messages should be able to Trigger/Launch Xbox One apps opening directly to target items within the app(s)

  17. 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.
