    Better symbiosis between app and console. Allow phone to see entire game library (on your console) and download from library as well as delete from console. Basically storage management. Also full Pin access. Right now the current app allows us to move the pins around - although I've had my app crash more than once while rearranging the pins.

    Full keyboard support for when your streaming games to your computer. I prefer to play with a keyboard and mouse, but when I stream my game to my laptop it's just not an option. If I were to implement it it would be an icon that you can click on and a sort of exit keybind to exit from the keyboard capturing. This would be especially helpful with games like Sea Of Thieves adding full keyboard support on console, but not all of the titles are play anywhere titles.

    Add the ability to sign in to your Xbox console FROM the Xbox App so you can start streaming without 'touching' the console at all. Currently I have to sign in to my Xbox directly before I can stream from it which seems to defeat the purpose of the functionality. Accept it may be my security settings on the console, but that should be a good thing and not prevent sign in either way.

    Option to stop showing unwanted friend suggestions in the activity feed: Most of the times totally irrelevant friend suggestions are at the top of the feed with unacceptable profile pictures, it feels so forced. An option in the settings to turn these suggestions off would be nice.

    The ability to resume/pause downloads via the app would be awesome too. I have a slow connection, being able to pause downloads when I need more speed without having to turn on the Xbox is basic, yet nice feature.

    Allow pauseing and resuming in downloads, and allow backup and restore of games,plzz

    Would like to see some hotkeys for functions like mute or refresh, and would like to be able to adjust mic settings (ie sensitivity). Mine is just a little too sensitive and picks up YouTube from across the house

    hotkey for mute party chat would be a game changer and i'd actually use the app

    microphone settings in the Windows Xbox App. Noise gates, filters, push to talk, etc. This will change everything.

    Add customizable hotkeys for Xbox party functions within the Xbox app for Windows. Multiplayer games require clear communication. While doing large group activities its very important to minimize the noise to get the right information out there. If I had a hot key I could hit to quickly mute and unmute myself and the party chat it would make playing and broadcasting multiplayer games much easier.

    Live tile showing recent screenshots. Be a cool little touch to see your recent activity and liven up your start menu.

    Microsoft please add push to talk for party chat or a mute option set via a HotKey. I can't tell you the amount of times it causes frustration while streaming when I have to jump in and out of my game to mute myself to talk with my Stream. Please this is essential, even for the Mixer streaming service.

    Can we please change the right click on clips back to where it was before we can actually save our clips to Pc instead of only being able to mute/pause the video

    The addition of a Push-to-Talk hotkey from your keyboard through the Xbox App on Windows 10 would tremendously improve communication and ease. Please add this feature to enhance Xbox Live parties on PC.

  • Monte Brown commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I use an external mic with the Windows 10 Xbox App and would be amazing to be able to set a hotkey to mute the mic within the App when I live stream I am talking to my viewers, and not disrupt the people I am in an Xbox Live Party with, and be able to mute, and unmute microphone.

    I think this would be a great addition to the Xbox App.
