Closed - Xbox App on Mobile

Thank you for participating in the Xbox App on Mobile Idea Drive!

Throughout this Idea Drive, Team Xbox was interested in learning more about how you use the Xbox Mobile App and how it could enhance your overall gaming experience.

One of the Ideas, the ability to share Game Clips and Screenshots, is available in the Xbox Mobile App as of the end of January.

Thank you again for your suggestions, comments, and votes!

  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.

                  • Allow More Sorting Options in the Store

                    Please make the store more accessible in the app. Current special offers etc. are currently not available as a category.
                    Basically, the app should have the same functionality and accessibility as the Store on the Xbox itself.

                    Thanks!

                    • Allow Users to Manage Groups on the App

                      I would like to use the Xbox One App on my phone or PC to customize my groups and pins while I am unable to play. Most of us would use this feature to create/modify groups when we are away from our console, or even out of the house! The Xbox App is meant to be an extension to our Xbox One, not just a worthless News Feed.

                      I don't know about you, I prefer to spend my "game time" gaming.

                      Thank you.

                        I’d love to be able to send a Party invite through iMessage/Messenger or share an invite to other social apps on my phone.

                          • Allow users to directly view an Achievement via Posts in Activity Feeds

                            When viewing either a club feed or the general community feed and a user has shared an achievement they've unlocked, the only way to currently view that achievement description is to:
                            - tap once to "zero-in" on the achievement as a feed item (giving you the ability to see Likes, Comment, et al.),
                            - tap that achievement again to be brought to a comparison of ALL of that game's achievements between you and that user...
                            - and finally, you have to scroll through the entire list of achievements, and hope you remember what the name of that one in particular.

                            • Create and manage tournaments from Android and iOS app

                              It would be great to be able to create, run and manage tournaments on mobile - basically for any game. Just let us manually enter who won each game, etc. for a given game format with either teams or individual players. This is something where Xbox could stand out.
