Xbox Requests: Week of July 12th, 2024

Xbox Requests: Capturing all your ideas, across all of Xbox, every week!

From PC gaming to Xbox consoles, and everything in between, if you have an idea or feature request that you want to share with Team Xbox, you've come to the right place! Add your requests below, upvote your favorites, and discuss and help refine the ideas of others here all week long.

Tips:

  • We want your ideas for PC gaming just as much as we look forward to hearing your ideas regarding consoles, cloud gaming, mobile devices, TV's, VR, peripherals, and anything else you might think of; if you have an idea for Xbox, we want to hear it!
  • Join your voices together! Try searching for others who have posted the same idea first and upvote theirs instead of posting your own, then feel free to respond to their comment to discuss or refine the idea further.

Rules:

  • Requests for additions to backward compatible titles are subject to removal as the program ended in 2021 per the announcement here.
  • If you have multiple ideas, be sure to post them individually rather than grouping them all into a single post.
  • Please remember to keep the discussion civil and on topic! If you need a refresher, check the Subreddit Rules.

Be sure to check out the Xbox Insider Program Community Update November 2023 to learn more about what we're up to and what the future might look like!

Note: We've received a few questions about this recently, so we want to communicate it here as well. These threads are meant to be a way for the Xbox Insider Community to express their ideas and showcase what features are important to them. However, it is not an exclusive list of work items for the various engineering teams. This means there is no guarantee of implementation for any feature that is upvoted in these threads. The Xbox Insider Team communicates the feedback to the other teams that would be responsible for implementing them, but this is just one lever those teams might utilize to make a decision about where resources are applied. This is not meant to discourage voicing your opinion. We are striving to be more transparent with our processes, and want to reset expectations surrounding Feedback Fridays. Thanks so much for everyone that continues to participate!

Contacted xbox support and they told me to post here.

So I have the right accounts logged in and did all the trouble shooting already with the xbox help person. Any one have any idea how to fix this ? They said it might be the servers ? idk

The game just says upgrade to ultimate and its stuck there. Tried uninstalling the game and the xbox app as well and nothing.

Thanks in advance.

New controller update and calibration.

Why does my circularity change every couple of minutes. I calibrate (left stick with tape method for the extra range. It only goes up by a few points.) I take off the tape and it hits 10-12%. A few minutes past by and it goes back to 9%. I Change the setting to true diagnals on my elite 2. And nothing happens.

I restart the controllers. Suddenly my range is at around 4-5% undershooting like crazy. I play a couple of minutes and my left stick was at 20%+. What I like. Then after a few minutes it's back down to 9%.

How does this Elite2 work. Why do my settings not update, save, or somehow constantly changing. I stay at the same profile.

I have the option to downgrade to 5.21.3240.x, on a different console. (Did so already. But instead of not randomly sending me a new circularity. It would add range on one side and remove from the other)

Currently on the firmware update 5.22.16.0 on my Elite 2 1797.


Calibration option showed only onces on the PC. Now it's not there. And can only calibrate on console. What did y'all change? Fix one thing break another.

I have several dead 1708/1914 controllers from 5.21 update. (Have one at 5.20 as my main, now 3.xx.xx). It's annoying having to press dashboard every time. Plz add a skip option. I already tried it. And got 6 extrabrickss.

Now I have the option of 5.21 or 5.22 which break something. This isn't a your on Alpha you know what you're in for. Nah. The last 3 months y'all have pushed firmwares to consoles and accessories to live updates. It's not cool.


Edit: managed to revert the firmware to 4.8.1908.0

Remote play can't/won't connect to Xbox

Hello all,

Recently, Ive been playing remotely through my PC. It was fine in the last week but now all of a sudden it shows the error, "Try again in awhile. We can't connect to your console right now." or something along those lines. No matter what network I use it does this. The Xbox app says everything is up and running for remote play.

I've tried the following to fix it:

  • Checking for updates on both the console and Xbox app on my PC (which there were none)

  • Restarting both my Xbox and my PC

  • Clearing the cache on my Xbox

None of these troubleshoot techniques have worked. If some has ever had a similar problem and know how to fix it, it would be greatly appreciated if you could help me figure this out.

Having Xbox game bar issues/party chat not working

My party chat through game bar only works for the first party I join. If I get disconnected/leave the party/join a different party when I join the next party I won’t be able to hear anyone but they can hear me. If I restart my pc the first party I join will function properly again. However if I leave,disconnect, or join another party the problem happens again. It’s become an endless cycle of turning on and off my pc when trying to talk to different friends. Any help is appreciated!

Xbox download beta OS but im not part of Insider hub

Hi ive owned my xbox since launch and one day my OS changed to a beta OS but i=I am no part of Xbox Insider. I purchased a new xbox after i installed the app and seen there was no devices to remove from the system. After talking to a gamer on xbox support i was directed here to have xbox insiders investigate.

here is what they recommended:

The OS you posted is indeed the current beta patch: June 13, 2024 - Xbox Update Preview - Beta (2406.240612-1410)

Um, here is what I would advise to do, please have this checked and reported with Xbox Preview beta team, as somewhat something bugged on the patch on the console, as by the looks of it its, new and your account itself not on beta but it was downloading a beta patch.
So they can have it investigated and correct it.
To report, you can post it on Xbox official insider page here- https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxinsiders/ (you would need a reddit account)

Series X restarting since last Alpha Skip-Ahead update

Hello,

A few times since the most recent Alpha Skip-Ahead update my Xbox Series X has restarted itself.
It will seize up, the power light blinks a few times and then the console shuts down and restarts.

Massive speeddrop on Series X using TP-Link AX5400 (Archer AX73 v2.0) WiFi WPA2/3 Mixed and WPA3 only won't connect at all

Hi all,

Because of personal reallocation necessities I'm forced to use a WiFi connection for the Series X. I'm on the Beta ring and I'm on the latest xb_flt_2406zn.240612-1410 OS version. Thankfully my 1Gbps fiber connection has moved with me but I'm missing my good old Cat6 cables to get stability etc.

The thing is when I connect my Series X to my SSID using WPA3 only I get the message that I'm not using WPA2, WPA3 or any compliant security version to secure the interweb waves flowing through the apartment. My Macbook connects perfectly and I get a stable 900+Mbit throughput over WPA3 in the same room the Xbox is situated. When I change to WPA2/3 mixed the XB connects but instead of presenting me with speeds compared to the Macbook (which is still clipping at say 925Mbit) the XB reaches a terrible all time low of 100Mbps on 2.4Ghz and 235Mbps on the 5Ghz channel. When I put the SSID in mixed mode 5Ghz is used hence 235Mbps is presented during a speedtest. You can do the math for the 2.4Ghz channel and 5Ghz channel and it makes me cry a bit ;) purely because I don't understand what's going on.

I've tried to change the booster settings of the router from everything on to everything off and everything that's in between but I can't get the XB reach higher throughput. That are option like OFDMA/MU-MIMO enabled/disabled (this option greatly enhance the stability and throughput), Smart Connect is like Mixed mode 2.4/5Ghz combined and some other stuff but on or off, it doesn't matter.

Latency values seem quite alright, 9 ms which isn't bad at all. Wireless strengt is 100% but packet loss states 100% after every single connection check.

I've read threads started nearly 4 years ago stating trouble with WPA3 or mixed mode issues and in lots of these threads there was an answer that there was work in progress but no solution or something where I remotely can think of that I can change to get the gaming router get its juice flowing to the Series X. I really don't understand what I do wrong here or if there's something I overlooked. Why are all of my devices, like my Samsung Tab S7+, IPad Pro, Macbook, Samsung S20 and S24 Ultra, etc. hitting much higher throughput and does it look like my Series X is partying on some sort of massive throughput throttling fest. 

Is there any explanation I didn't read about maybe, I truly searched. I really find it strange that the XB is complaining about WPA3 not being recognized here. WPA3 is WPA3 so why would my Series X state that I'm using something different than WPA, WPA2 or WPA3? Why does mixed mode work but is my throughput 4x lower on 5Ghz and 9x lower on 2.4Ghz than on other devices? Am I the only one here or is it (still) a known something? I already send in 2 reports (both using Other - Other due to a problem with the reporting tool) so my tech info should've reached where it needs to be.

Please let me know if I can send more information, I will gladly be of any assistance here to figure out where I need to look or what I need to change or fiddle with. I really like to thank everyone upfront who are going to give any input. Unfortunately my answer or response can take a bit because of a brain and body condition. Sometimes it takes a day or 2 to get me rebooted again so no worries, I'll be back.
