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

        Would it possible to see the progress of an update or a download of a game through the Xbox app?
        Let's just say I just bought a new game which is quite heavy. I'd like to let it download on the background while I do something else (anything, on my laptop, out with some friends etc). It would be nice to see the progress or at least a notification that lets me know if the download is finished.

        Would really love this feature (ability to initiate and check on status of downloads) - in fact this is the main thing I'd actually desire from the Xbox app. The larger game installs can take up to 1 day with my internet speeds - it's a pitb to have to keep switching on the tv + console (or initiate screen share) just to find out this information.
