    • Option to Limit Bandwidth on Downloads and Updates

      Some people only have limited download speed and would like the option to limit speeds to as low as possible so updates downloading in the background won't use the entire connection up. I have 10Mbps internet (fastest available) and when I update my games I can't do anything else.

      Many of us could keep all our games&apps updated if there was an option to limit downloads to 128/256/512/768kpbs or higher for people with faster connections that still get used up entirely by the Xbox.

      • Ability to Collapse Groups

        the newly added groups feature is a great way to organize games and other content. but if there are many items added to a group it is as confusing to browse/navigating as browsing the whole list of games.
        allowing to collapse groups would be a great improvement! so one can navigate more quickly to the particular group, open it and select the item wanted.

        making groups collapsable on home too would also be a big improvement!

        • Add an Option to Pick the Console Where Content Is Installed

          Give users the option to pick a specific console to install to.

          Case-in-point: I have two Xbox One consoles in my home. I use the console in my living room that is not my “home” console, and my wife uses my “home” console, (she shares my gold subscription). When I buy or install something, it downloads to the non-home console AND the home console.

          We need an option to pick where the content gets installed. If Amazon can give us this option for eBooks, we should be able to get it for games.

          • Lower the 256GB Size Limitation for External Drives

            The drive limits on Xbox devices should be lowered. Smaller drives are cheap, widely available, and many are a perfect size for storing smaller games.

            The 256GB limit on for external drives should be lowered to allow more sizes to work.

            • Allow Tiles to Be Moved And Arranged, Similar to Pins

              Many of the games you own in “Games” are a mess alphabetically. For example, some even have “Full Game” at the beginning of its title so they are all alphabetized by F instead of the true title.

              Please give us the ability to arrange and customize the order of our games and apps in the actual games and app sections...not just pins.

              Thanks!

              • An Option to Prompt for Location When Downloading and Installing a Game or App

                When an external drive is connected and you download a game, another dialog should be presented asking on which drive to save said game

                • Ability to quickly see if an app/game has recently been updated, is installed, or other status directly via app/game icon in Pins/Groups

                  Currently when you pin apps/games to Pins/Groups, the icons don’t denote if they app/game is actually installed or not, if it’s been recently updated, or any other status indicator.
                  This could be notes with minor flair added to an icon to note a recent update for example or for icon to be slightly grayed if it’s not installed.
                  This is very helpful to quickly see if your favorite apps/games have been updated.
                  Also, when you have multiple Xboxes, the pins/groups are shared but you can’t quickly notice what pinned items are installed or not on each Xbox.

                    • Allow Nicknames for Games and Apps and Allow Sorting by this Criteria

                      It would be nice to allow us to give nicknames to games to sort them in our way. Make the games name be the default nickname, and if people is bothered by symbols like the copyright one, or the word The at the start of the name of a game, they can solve it themselves

                      • Filter Games Based on Content Restrictions

                        Currently my son is able to browse my entire games collection (as well as all movies / TV shows I've purchased on Films & TV). What he's able to see should be filtered based on the age restrictions I've applied to his account

                        • Allow Users to Have Games or Apps Uninstall Automatically

                          I always notice that I am low on storage and then realize that it’s because I have games installed that I never play and forgot were installed. It would be great to have an option to automatically uninstall a game after a set amount of time without playing it, or at least be notified that it’s still installed.

                          • Add more timeframes to the Sort by Last Played filter

                            In the current sort categories, when I sort by Last Played, I'm only seeing the games I've played today, this week, and 30+ days or something (not looking at it right now). What that means functionally is that there are times when I've come back to my console a week and change later, and basically have to search through the entire pile of all my installed games again, rather than having it be just a few clicks from the top. Add a few more time categories here in between those, please.
