  1. Push Notifications for Game & System Updates

    I have three Xboxes at my house and I think it would be great if the Xbox Smartphone App would notify me about the status of Updates and Installs on each console and give me some kind of control. Also it would be great to actually start a System Update from the Smartphone App

    Notifications & Interactions on Smartphone

    System Updates ready to install - Do it yes/no

    1b. System Update done

    App & Game Updates

    2. Install of App/Game has started

    2b Install of App/Game has finished

      • Allow Users to Choose Between Light and Dark Themes in Xbox App

        On the Xbox App interface instead of having a gray color as the main color how about white or light grey, like on the Xbox App on Windows 10 and on the interface on the Xbox One

        • Allow App to work in Landscape mode

          Allow the Xbox app to rotate to landscape mode. This allows easier use when a device is already rotated, and is helpful when using a tablet as a remote for the Xbox.
