        When you download a game or app there will be an estimated time. That estimated time should tell you when you game should be done.

        The installation queue has improved dramatically with the ready-to-install information, but details on missing estimated time information to complete the download of games and applications are missing.
        Microsoft, please do an upgrade upgrade to have estimated time to complete the download.

        For example it would be:
        Remaining time: 3 hours and 45 minutes.
        Estimated time: 2 hours and 20 minutes.

        This is just an example of suggestion.

        I can definitely see this working well when it's based off of your current speed, but also what may be affecting your speed (such as streaming YouTube or Twitch). It could show both how long the full download will take (before you even DL it) and also how much longer until it's finished downloading.

        This would be very convenient, but time estimates are often inaccurate for people with unstable download speeds. A smart system, incorporating times and/or bandwidth fluctuations while downloading previous files on a particular internet setup would make it even better.
