Microsoft launches Xbox Feedback website, asks for your ideas

Vote on new Xbox One features, see them implemented.

Microsoft has launched Xbox Feedback, a site where Xbox One owners can suggest future features for its console.

Users can vote on popular ideas so they get noticed by Microsoft and - hopefully - be added to the Xbox One itself.

Top among the current crop of suggestions are a better "low battery" notification for controllers, the ability to preload games, background music support and voice messages.

There are lots of ideas for greater customisation of the Xbox One dashboard, too - background images, tile reorganisation and the like.

More ambitious suggestions call for some kind of backwards compatibility (or streaming) for Xbox 360 titles.

You can also suggest apps you'd like to appear - popular choices include Spotify and BBC iPlayer.

Users can vote once for each suggestion and have a total of 1000 votes to cast. If and when ideas are implemented then those votes will be returned to users.

"Xbox fans are great at letting us know what they like about Xbox, and what they'd like us to do better," a Microsoft statement reads. "Whether on MajorNelson.com, NeoGAF, Reddit, Twitter, forums, or in person at events, we are always listening to what our fans have to say."

Xbox One now receives a new firmware update each month, with major additions being added in response to early criticism of the console's clunky interface. Recent updates have added external hard drive support and the option for profiles to be automatically signed in, plus numerous other friends, chat and notifications improvements.
