Estimated Download & Installation Times
In the queue of My Games & Apps, show an estimated time for how long the download (digital games or updates) or installation (disc) will take.

It doesn't pass month I don't wonder why don't we already have it. Months ago they at least added the amount of bandwidth used, but this and maybe even a steam/windows-like graph showing the recent history of each content's transfer speed would also be welcome.
Please Xbox, there are still few things in your UI that should be fixed, start from this one ;)
A countdown timer for how long it will be until your download is done

This is already there.
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.
Thta is one point i'm missing really because normally i work on gentoo linux and that is a standard in my ICT programs too. I have todo it everytime in the industrial automation projects.
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.
