Party chat freezes after an hour.
by Aaron254 on 2019/12/13 05:23
Buggy app. Please fix. My party just stops working after an hour. Has happened consistently for a month now. I have uninstalled the app. I have even upgraded to an iPhone 11 and this is still an issue.
Completely bugged.
by JayJ0034 on 2019/12/13 05:05
The new update to this app is terrible. Everytime I try to enter a party it disconnects and crashes. It worked fine before this update. But it’s really bad now.
Downloads updates
by ToooDelirious on 2019/12/13 04:46
Wish this app cant start viewing the download or updates thats going on the system. Would be really noce if this app can do that👍🏽
Overall pretty good!
by Redneck Idiot on 2019/12/13 04:08
Very convenient for xbox media and especially when you can control your xbox. My only issue is that my app is constantly crashing, I’ll start up the app then about 30 seconds in the app will crash etc.
bad review

YOUR VOICE CHAT PARTY SYSTEM DONT WORK
by SELLING MY XBOX on 2019/12/12 05:12
This was 5 stars but now it’s 1 because pur usual y’all don’t fix nothing until y’all are ready .. it’s been 1 week and it still say I need to update it when I try and join party chat on Xbox app .. you all are worthless really..
Let us delete
by SniggleSnapV2 on 2019/12/12 04:56
It’s a great app and I absolutely love it but what would make it better is if they allowed us to delete the clips from Xbox live through the app
Convenient but has issues
by InfamousHuss on 2019/12/12 03:27
When someone is broadcasting you can’t share audio on iOS or Android from what I can see, and I think it has something to do with the xbox app being linked to the xbox that’s broadcasting
The best system out there
by Tiffany's Sexy Lover on 2019/12/12 02:51
Xbox has the best games. Very smooth Online game play. You can’t compare the other console to Xbox, why you ask, The social community is the best, link up with online friends to play multiple player or play duels on campaign mode. Even if you rather play solo, the graphics are amazing, and there are so many different game to choose from, even the throwbacks from XBOX 360. I really like meeting new friends with common interest in gaming. You won’t find another game console that has such easy way to manage your accounts, or settings, personalize your Xbox main screens to fit what you like, and how you want to play. XBOX success is that they listen to there customers, and not just give customers what they thing they want.
Fix this.
by mankeyspankey on 2019/12/12 01:58
App would get more stars if it didn’t crash all the time and I could actually see the attachments. Always saying cannot show attachment try again later.
Help

Missing important features
by AddMythicalWolf830oMCPE on 2019/12/12 00:03
I’m required to update the app to join parties but there hasn’t been an update on the store for two weeks. Please fix fast [old] (Referring to party invites) I can send invites successfully but I have rarely received invites from friends in the app (not a problem on the Xbox console). can’t view past invites if I do even receive them on the app. I would like to be able to join posts but because I can’t get invites I’m unable to.
Great app overall besides one thing...
by Galaxy_Love on 2019/12/11 23:37
So I like it it’s a great app I use it to play Minecraft I just got a new phone and sadly forgot my password so I made i new account. I made i new account and decided to use my free gamer tag change I try it and it says unable to change gamer tag try again later(or something like that).So this happened last year...and it been saying that ever since. And I’m stuck with a stupid gamer tag. I really hope you see this. I was going to give five stars and this is the only this ruining it. I hope you have a good day.
Party chat problems
by Oddbdyfzvb on 2019/12/11 23:30
Every time i try and join an xbox live party it glitches and the whole app crashes
Great use for parties but too many bugs
by Corey J Fontenot on 2019/12/11 23:21
I like the app for getting in and playing with friends online and accessing parties easier without the hassle of going through the xbox instead of interrupting you’re game play. HOWEVER: The app has way too many bugs it either does not load looking for group pages sometimes or when you go to create a post for a game it crashes and kicks you out of the app and does this on and off sometimes when you try again. Sometimes my friends do not appear online when they are online. The chat when you join a party sometimes does not connect fully and forces you to leave the party and join back in or if you created it, to start another party, if it even works the second time.
FIX PARTY ISSUE
by Rafael James Puig on 2019/12/11 20:27
Every time I try to join a party invite it says I need to update my app when it already is updated. Fix your app Xbox so I can play with people and not commit suicide.
FAKE REVIEWS
by Chagumklein on 2019/12/11 20:02
I love how xbox literally pays people to post fake reviews because this is the most trash app. discord is 100% better. honestly im about to sell my xbox. microsoft is crap.

I signed out so I can sign into another account and I typed in the password and now I’m in a loop where I can’t log in normally by typing it but because of “live.com” I can’t anymore. I realized I typed in the wrong email and now I can’t sign in at all.
Party chat
by toneloce84 on 2019/12/11 09:06
Giving it four stars... everything is great except a couple of things... party chat is not working properly.. I can hear my friends but they can’t hear me! Also the audio on the vids I saved is not working at all .. the party chat situation has been a problem for a while now please fix it
So much potential
by 6_0 Rose on 2019/12/11 07:19
This app has so much potential but he lacks in the most important thing. The parties are low and crash’s every few minutes. I can’t communicate with my teammates in a party because the party fades in and out and the app crashes making it hard to play effectively among teammates.
Recent issues
by Scjfifhtikslh on 2019/12/11 06:51
I’ve always used this app and up until the last week or so. The app crashes regularly and I lag out of parties consistently even though my internet has been the same for over two years. Love this app and still wanna use it. Just some bugs that need fixing.

All the components
by netget5 on 2019/12/10 20:56
Video playback is slow and gets framerate issues instead of just pausing to buffer. All the great ideas are here, it just begs the question, where are the great developers to make it all work like clock work.
Same o same
by Mugg22 on 2019/12/10 10:46
If u want to look a game up to see if u want to buy it using the app all it does is load it’s been like this since I dl this app over a year ago BS
What’s taking so long?
by Carabthearab on 2019/12/10 06:10
This app has always been one that seems like it’s tying to get better but never really improves. The only reason I have tho things to watch captures but I can’t even do that without wasting 45 minutes of my life at a time. And I doubt you can even see this cause your Shiite app won’t even show my writing because it doesn’t work. Sincerely yours, Mr Guy is is
Needs to be fixed
by crasherburner on 2019/12/10 05:08
When I first got this app it worked great with the latest ones though it’s like it gets worse! App constantly crashes my phone and Xbox are both on the same WiFi network and yet I can’t turn it on from the app.
App update?

This is a Garbo, this app was good but they tried to app too much now it’s useless. It literally has an issue every day. The only reason why I use this is Bc of Ddos protection other then that I get get a mic
It was great at first
by EoE ves on 2019/12/09 22:27
This app worked great when I first downloaded it to my iPhone XR. Now I cannot get it to load messages or play my recent captures. The app is up to date. If I could rate it less than a star I would. Thanks hope y’all fix your crap
It’s amazing but...
by Xbox reasons on 2019/12/09 20:23
The app is amazing 95% bbbbbuuuuuuuuuuuut i think that the app should be able to have face time like features in the call

Can’t even sustain a party through phone.
Key Board Glich
by ningagirly16 on 2019/12/09 13:13
So I logged out of one of my accounts to sign in to my other one and the keyboard stopped popping up. So I can’t log in because the keyboard won’t work. I already deleted the app and refreshed it a few times but the key board still won’t work. Please fix this
The app is unreliable
by Shady_750 on 2019/12/09 07:08
So I would probably give this app a 4/5. If used to handle the party chat decently, I could send messages easily, and I could see my activity pretty quick (note I say ‘used to’). Ever since the most recent update I have had so many problems with this app. First of all one of my friends I can talk to for about 30 seconds before he cuts out, and it goes for everyone in the party. Another problem is that the app crashes way more than it should. The previous update I would have 1-3 crashes a month and now it’s 5 a day. Then also the app will just kick me out of parties but for some reason still let me talk to people. Let me explain, the app will say for other people [PRIVATE] had been kicked from the party and for them I will no longer appear in the party if the check the party, but for some reason they can still hear me and I can still hear them. If I try to leave the party and join back in afterwards the app will crash on me, keep in mind this happens every time I use party chat, meaning the app almost always crashes on me. So to summarize. I’m disappointed RIP the Xbox app😭

Can’t join parties
by hujnvdfiijfdf on 2019/12/08 16:42
The main thing I use this app for is joining parties and LFG posts. Every time I try to join a party i get a text box saying “Update to latest version to join party” even though I already have the latest version. Also, there’s a huge amount of time between getting party invites, on my Xbox I get the notification immediately but the app takes an extra 10-30 seconds. Please fix this since it’s what I, and most users, use the app for the most.

On the fence now...
by Livingbyluck on 2019/12/08 09:51
At first, I absolutely loved it! The way it use to be worked great. Had it’s minor dips, but after a few patch things got back to normal. They the update...and this is why I’m now in the fence. It dips a lot more. Trying to jump from my profile, to my son’s makes for a more time consuming issue and having to resign in all the time after signing out of one or the other gets old quick. I wish they just left it alone and fixed minor bugs. But bigger and bolder and shiny and new is the fab nowadays.
Doesn’t open after update

This app is horrible
by siN. Ghost on 2019/12/08 04:04
It is incredibly buggy, and I can also not use party chat as it says to “please update to the latest version to use party features” even though I’m on the latest version.
Not good

This app is a very good and convenient app. But I have a problem with something about. When you logout, it doesn’t show the different accounts in one area. Instead you have to logout, log back in and press different account. This is very inconvenient and I hope the developers will read this and fix it.

Please fix the app back to its normal state, and Get rid of this individual voice chat, and put it back to just Party invites
You’re getting sued
by supaboi179 on 2019/12/08 02:27
When I open the app it immediately shuts me out of it then as soon as I am able to get it opened it will let me put in my CORRECT DATA then it will not let me log in at all. If this app is not fixed then no one is going to use it anymore. Fix it or say goodbye to all your money and everyone will switch to PS4

Let me SIGN IN!!
by Sands_world on 2019/12/08 00:34
When I downloaded this app, I started to sign in with “my” Xbox Account. After trying different passwords I use, it said there was a problem with the account. Then I realized I was using the wrong account. But when I tried to sign in with a different account, it wouldn’t change from the error screen showing I have a problem with “my” account. Xbox please fix this bug so when this happens, you can choose to sign in with different accounts.

Not satire
by I hate chase banks on 2019/12/07 20:35
Are you tired of your application always working? Well great news! You can download this Xbox app. It’s all the reward of getting absolutely nothing accomplished while requiring you to put forth lots of effort into making the app work. Want to type a message only to not be able to send it? Xbox has got you covered. Ever wanted to look for a new or sentimentally old game only to hit an unexpected error pushing out to the cover of the Microsoft store? Again Xbox can help you. This is possibly Microsoft’s largest embodiment of a middle finger to the people who built them by buying their products
It will not open

by Thedanigofficial on 2019/12/07 16:49
Why don’t you let me change my name on the Xbox app I haven’t changed my name yet and it has been a month since I TrueDepth and then I trey again but it still doesn’t work so eather let me change my name like you are supposed to do or you people are lazy.
It’s ok
by Timbo5500 on 2019/12/07 11:33
The app is ok but the Microsoft store never wants to load anything. If I wanted to buy something I’d have to wait until I got home instead of having the convenience of using the app.

It’s great but....
by cold jazzyjasmine on 2019/12/07 03:49
This game is very great I love love love it! But....it won’t load right and I can’t use the chat or anything out of the feed page and it’s a little ridiculous for me to have to wait like two hours for one page to load.
SERIOUSLY
by KatAppUser on 2019/12/07 03:34
I finally got Minecraft pocket edition and it requested I choose a gamer tag. To do this it forced me to download this Xbox app. I changed the tag with the one free change it allows and it did NOTHING but it now says that I used up my free name change option when it never actually changed it! While I’m sure it works well for some people I needed it for one simple function and one simple function only and it didn’t work! I’m upset.
Fix This ASAP
by djsocool5 on 2019/12/07 03:12
Microsoft, if your going to keep your app like this, U aint getin credit, We advise to fix the crashes and more, U got a f* week
Few problems but Wonderful overall
by 101bry on 2018/02/15 14:58
Recently they came out with an update that has changed this app for the better. They allowed people to join parties on the go. This app is wonderful I love it so much. If I had one wish , it would be for the app to have a feature to (if you Xbox is on a connected to WiFi ) stream it to your phone and connect your controller to your phone maybe using a assesorie(even if you have to be on the same WiFi’s I want it😂 but if you don’t OMG I WOULD LOVE THIS APP SO MUCH) this is probably close to impossible but I have hope to the future . I thought they could never add joining parties to the app , they did . Let’s see what happens in the future (please launch the update idea I have I will go to the store buy the wire and connect my controller to my phone turn my Xbox on from school and play during lunch 😂)
Great but has some bugs

I really really like smartglass. It's interconnected with Microsoft products and for the most part works pretty well. On the other hand, there are definitely some issues. Data on the console and data on the game are not always synced. You may have deleted a msg on console but that same msg may appear unread on the app. The remote function is iffy at best. Sometimes it will connect and sometimes it tells you to turn features on in the settings of your console. Not only that, the setting feature that it directs you to does not exist. Well it exist, but it is not setup to change device settings. And yes I am on the same network, in case you were asking yourself that question. The app also crashes ALOT. Leaving the app running in the background of my iPhone 6+ is a sure way to an app crash around the second or third reopen without clearing running apps. Regardless of these minor hiccups in functionality and usability, the Xbox app is likely my top 3 favorite apps. It's fast. It's responsive. It's involved. Furthermore, does exactly what I want it to do and that is to connect with online friends, family and game community. The bugs, to say the least, are neck and neck to tie last place on a long list of "Things that give me a headache each day." I'm sure an entry level software engineer could fix the lows with some testing. Later. And give me a job lol😐😬
Good concept, but incredibly broken.

The Xbox app is amazing the first time you see it. You can access you account on the go and do so many things. However, the app’s downfalls become apparent very soon. First of all, you need a wifi connection to access the app, it will not work with cellular data. So, the whole aspect of xbox on the go is completely thrown out of the window. Secondly, you’ll be very luck if you can actually use the app. For at least one week out of the month the app just doesn’t work. You try to launch it, but you are met with either a blank green screen or a n infinite loading wheel. I’ve tried restarting, redownloading, and even costumer support, but nothing can fix it. Over time it will just fix itself and one day you’ll try to launch the app and it will just work for no reason just as suddenly as it stopped working. My final issue it the built in keyboard. Xbox has a wonderful system that detects the keyboard on your xbox and allows you to type on your phone. This is great for multiplayer games with a chat system. However, like the app itself this feature is very spotty. Sometimes the keyboard on the app will just stop popping up and it won’t ever pop up for the next week to month. Then it will just magically fix itself again. There are also tons of little bugs that litter that app that at sometimes, makes the app completely unusable. The Xbox app definitely doesn’t deserver the 4.7 out of 5 that it currently has.
Happy w/app. Recent update needs fixing
by Partycrasherz (Avery) on 2019/11/24 10:58
I’ve been using the app for about a year now. Before when I had a Samsung (and soon hope to go back) and now obviously on iPhone. The app works very well for everything it offers. It’s improved it’s ability to connect to your Xbox and be used as a controller for Xbox functions and keyboard amongst many other services in app that were improved and work almost perfectly. I see now that this update has improved the quality of voice/party chat which was kinda mediocre at times and can’t wait to try. Will update after. I hope to see the ability to join the party chat through your phone and not be disconnected from party chat from the Xbox. It would be a wonderful fix if I were able to listen to the party through my headphones connected to my controlled but use the phone as a mic, as my current headset has two aux cables preventing me from seamlessly using both audio and mic functions... Update: party chat is not stable and my messages with other players aren’t updating correctly. Kinda disappointed...
Does some things reliably; some things rarely.
by PolarSpectram on 2018/05/22 14:07
You can always see who’s online from your friends list, and what they’re playing. Messaging works well too. However; the ONE THING the app is absolutely advantageous over a controller for accessing your console with - does not work consistently. The on screen keyboard, lets you type quickly on your phone - much faster than using a controller. When it works, this feature is extremely convenient, letting you input text to your Xbox or games in time spans you never could without the app. But good freakn’ luck getting the keyboard on the app to come up when you have an on-screen keyboard on your console. It’ll work sometimes, and other times you can pull up the keyboard on your Xbox again and again and again - to have the app do nothing. Which, needless to say - is very frustrating. To have such a convenient feature work intermittently and be completely unusable at other times is maddening. If that singular function worked reliably, I would say this is a magnificent app. But right now; it just doesn’t.
Great app... just a suggestion.
by jimlag91 on 2019/03/02 18:00
I love using this app when i am away from home to view clips, read and respond to messages but there is one thing i believe would be an amazing addition to the app. We all know the xbox one was designed to be the ultimate home console for both games an media, but how about security? I know the xbox ones kinnect was discontinued however it could regain some popularity with the ability to view what the kinnect sees when you are away from home. I just recently adopted a puppy and currently am looking into security cameras for the house so i can check up on my boy when im away from home. It would be an amazing feature to be able to open the app and see whats going on in my livingroom. I doubt this idea would be implemented however if it was, i believe a lot of people will want to get their hands on the kinnect again. Aside from my suggestion, i love the app and if this idea is considered and applied, i would change my rating from 4 stars to 5.
I spend alot of time on this app but somethings stand to be improved.
by yankees4eva69 on 2019/02/02 15:17
I enjoy most aspects of the app except for two things. The store and playing your clips. I find it really inconsistent when you’re watching clips you have recorded. Sometime the clip will run from start to finish without interruption and other times it struggles with 5 seconds in. I have a decent connection and I find that even when i’m using LTE it still struggles to play smoothly. My biggest problem however is the store. I wish it was better about showing new games that have released. As apposed to showing the most popular games which it does. I know I can search specific game but i’m looking for those gems and I cannot find them if the store only shows the fortnites and the fifas of the worlds. I know the phone app shouldn’t be the place for discovery but anything is better than what they currently have. Including the dlc tab which is usually just occupied with mutiple dlc of the same game. Other than my complaints I like this app very much.
Messaging Issue
by Pandakid85 on 2019/05/28 19:24
I absolutely love this app; I’m able to play with my friends, view clips easily, see who’s online and what they’re playing, and the messaging aspect was great... until it wasn’t. I wasn’t getting notifications even though they were on, and it was stuck on the last time I texted this person so I had to refresh it every couple of minutes. That’s not even the worst part unfortunately. Now, my messages won’t send and all my conversations are gone: they won’t even load and I can’t talk to my friends! This is the only way I can talk to most of my friends so I’m upset to be out of contact with them. I have tried to reset my phone, and even deleted and redownloaded the app, but none of it worked. I really love this app and would love to give it five stars, but I can’t if there is a barrier of communication in the way. I hope you guys can get this fixed efficiently and hopefully stop this problem from occurring in the future.
Works as well as it should
by Metthroid on 2018/01/07 19:21
The app offers a lot of useful capabilities that I find very useful in my play. Everything works well enough that I have little problems when utilizing its functions. Some bugs are present, but everything has its kinks. These bugs are often fixed by simply restarting the app, or in a few cases restarting the Xbox it’s linked to. Anyone that plays Xbox should probably have this app, seeing as it’s both free and rather useful. The ability to see and respond to messages, even if you aren’t on your Xbox is a great ability. The ability to tell which friends are online by going into the app or having it send you a notification of when they get online is also a favorite of mine. And the ability to type and copy & paste with your phone makes sending messages and inputting commands a breeze. I recommend this to any Xbox user, there’s really no reason to not have it as far as I know. Great work, Microsoft.
Convenient - Update
by Mac Kraft on 2017/09/06 02:43
I love this app! It has all the essentials for an on the go gamer. There's only one small issue that I've noticed and compared to the rest of the amazing features, it's a relatively small gripe. Nonetheless, the messaging system within the app works wonderfully but it also contains the only thing that bugs me. It's very time consuming to cleanup or delete old messages. Having to slide left and delete them all individually takes quite a while if you receive messages frequently. Also the difference in text color between a new message and a message marked as "read" is so subtle that it becomes difficult to locate unread messages when trying to cleanup notifications. My suggestions: Install a feature that will let the user select multiple messages at a time and delete them or mark as read. Change the color of the font on new messages and read messages to something more drastic. Perhaps a green text for new messages and white text for read messages. Overall, as I stated in the beginning, I love this app! And I believe updating the messaging system will only increase my enjoyment and ease of use for everyone. Cheers! PS - I pre-installed Destiny 2 with this app and I'm waiting patiently to regain my Light when the clock hits midnight! Xbox, the best place to play Destiny 2 hands down! Console exclusives don't hold a candle to our community. Find me in the EDZ, guardians. Gamer tag: Surelok
Buggiest App Created by Microsoft Ever!
by AstralElegance on 2018/11/21 13:51
The app breaks down and has to be completely restarted EVERY time you receive a phone call or an alarm goes off on your phone. The app breaks down and has to be restarted even if you choose to ignore a phone call you receive! I literally NEVER write reviews but this application has been SO INCREDIBLY buggy I felt I had to give feedback. This is hands down the worst product I’ve ever used that is produced by Microsoft. The application also randomly shifts between using the speaker mode and using the hands-on mode when talking to people using the Xbox app making it incredibly frustrating when you are in the middle of a game trying to hear your teammate and all of a sudden your teammates voices are cut down to a whisper because your xbox app messed up again. Bottom line, I got this app to be able to talk to my friends on Xbox live without a mic, and if you are trying to use the application for the same thing be prepared to deal with a lot of frustration. My advice, don’t use the app and just go buy a mic and save yourself hours of frustration dealing with one of the world’s buggiest apps. Yeah
Its been almost 9 months guys, c’mon.
by Odstfan6 on 2018/12/11 14:50
I have brought this issue up not once, but twice before and this is the third time I am bringing it up. The screen recording. For the love of god please find a way to fix this. I have a YT channel named “ShisnoGaming” and all of my videos from about 7 months ago to today don’t have any game audio in the clips because I have had to record them off of the website from my mobile device. I have to do this because every time I screen record off of this app, the screen goes black and no audio plays. PLEASE FIX THIS. I was able to get audio from this app when it worked and I dont know why it does not anymore. I currently cant afford a capture card so this is my only option. I want my game audio back so bad! Other than this problem, this is a great app and very convenient for usage so thats why my review is four stars. Please fix this problem as soon as possible!
It’s a really cool app but needs to be fixed up a little bit
by soloangel07 on 2018/11/11 06:40
I really enjoy this app, you can view your game clips and share them, upload them, save them, and message through Xbox so much easier and all it’s really great and useful but one main thing that I hope gets fixed really soon, is a bug with parties. Imagine how annoying it is, you are in the middle of a game you are talking to your friends laughing then all of a sudden, you can’t hear them anymore, you look down on your phone (because that’s what you are using for the party) and your Xbox app restarted itself and it keeps happening, over and over. It gets really annoying. Friends have to keep inviting me over and over in the middle of their games because my Xbox app keeps restarting itself in mid conversation. So that’s my main thing but besides that’s it’s a really useful app and if you have Xbox I do recommend you get this.
Store Section Still Doesn’t Show Sale Games
by N0iSEA on 2018/12/09 19:09
The Microsoft Store portion is essentially useless for people who prefer to browse the games that are on sale each week. The only sale games it shows are the Games with Gold ones, which represent only a very small fraction of the sale priced games under “Deals” each week and it never includes the biggest deals and best games. Microsoft has good sales on digital games but they strongly deter you from using the app to buy them with the poor design. The big winner in this programming fail are Sony and Nintendo. I check all 3 digital stores each week and buy the games that are the lowest price. Since sony and nintendo actually have a deals section Microsoft has lost out on at least several thousand dollars just from me over the last few years when I bought games from their competitors. Had this app actually shown the Deals I would have definitely bought many of those games on Xbox One - especially since my PS hard drives (both external and internal) are nearly full because the PSN store sales are easy to view.
Been using this for a year and still glitched
by Diagonalley on 2017/10/20 15:06
I’ve done reviews before and the same people issues are there. Messages from friends come up on my screen with the complete message for all to see. Doesn’t matter if it’s locked or not. So have have to set my phone notifications to not preview at all which therefore requires me to open up the app every time a I a generalized “Xbox notification” on my iPhone. Why can it go back to beeping with a discreet “ you gave a message from John Doe gamer tag”? That was the best way but it’s been a year. Next the app starts to randomly show all my friends offline whenever it wants to when I know do a fact they are on the app. Also we use to have time stamps for when a message came through the app now I have no idea when it was sent if I don’t hear the first and only beep. They do a lot of updates and such but I just want basic message functioning cuz that my main reason for using the app.
Opinion and a Thankful person.
by IIx2IM1NiK4NxII on 2017/12/17 07:38
Great app maybe can you guys add a feature with Google Chromecast so I can show my friend my recorded game play on big screen from my iPhone Xbox App ! But if you can’t I understand I lf you can from The Xbox app I understand if not I even understand . I just though if that ti Day my opinion don’t count much but today my nephew came over and i didn’t want to connect my Xbox to my tV room screen because then I’ll Have to move it but I did though how about if the Xbox app had an option where I can send my recorded plays to my to without my Xbox that’s so cool To have just because I sniped 4 people back to back on fortnite I want to show off lol but anyway Xbox app as is its awesome that’s for such engaging experience couldn’t or have not not met such experiences with a console ! Thank you for being first to me and best !
Rating five star so people can see.
by the_reviewer2477 on 2019/12/04 14:48
The xbox app is a good idea. You can message your friends, look at yours or other clips, and join a party. But it is really bugged and they need to fix the lag when you watch clips. It’s very annoying watching someone’s clip and then it freezes but the clip is still going. And it take a long time to load a clip. In my opinion, xbox needs to allow an option when you watch a clip, you can change the quality to make it run smoother at least. At this point, xbox really disappointed me with the whole xbox industry when it comes to games. It’s like they don’t care about the app. In my view at least. Messaging in xbox also has some bug. It says I have a message but I really don’t and when I do see one and I open it and back out, it still says that there is a message.
Nearly a perfect app!
by James2277 on 2019/01/02 14:36
I’ve read many reviews about people having bug/glitch issues, and I can say I’ve never, even since before Xbox One came out, had issues running this app on my iPhone 6. The only thing I would make an adjustment to, is purchasing Xbox 360 backward compatible games. For those that don’t know, we can’t do it through the app. I love to constantly look through Games with Gold (when I’m away from my Xbox, such as at work) every week and on the reset days (1st and 16th of every month) to see what’s free/discounted, and I just wish that I could buy and start downloads for the Xbox 360 games without always needing to go to Xbox’s website. Besides that, again I love this app and I’ve been using it for about 4 years now. Keep up the good work Microsoft!
Ups and downs
by Yeah, I'm that guy on 2018/07/30 16:49
This app is a great companion to the Xbox allowing you to type on your Xbox from your phone, but some drawbacks to that is it doesnt always stay connected to the Xbox for some reason. Also something is lost to see updated is making it a lot easier to look at screenshots and video as that either takes forever to load or never loads at all. I’d like to be able to clean up my storage of my clips and screenshots so I can upload more stuff from my Xbox and this app would be a great place to be able to do that. Also as another reviewer wrote, it doesn’t always sync messages completely so that the app is as updated as the Xbox, even when the Xbox is on and connnected to the app, which I find very strange. But other than that I like the rest of the functionality. Hopefully this will get read by the developers and these issues can get updated.
App crashes whenever I sign into account
by Toph110 on 2019/04/28 23:51
So I’ve been using this app for awhile but over the past couple weeks whenever I went to send a message to someone it says this feature can’t be accessed because my privacy settings prevent this from happening so I couldn’t find anything to change in my privacy settings so I tried to delete the app and sign back in and low and behold it worked. So for about a day everything was working normal but then the other day it signed me out for no reason and now whenever I try to sign back in the app crashes. Here’s the catch. I have another Xbox account that I can sign into totally fine and it works fine, but my main Xbox account whenever I try to sign in it doesn’t work. I would really appreciate it if this could be looked at it. It is very annoying. But all in all when working properly the app is great
Remote feature
by DannyDsta on 2019/11/28 17:42
App works great for screen shots and game captures, to see other Feeds. I mostly use the app for its Xbox remote feature, where it mimics a Xbox controller. The Remote feature is good, I use it a lot for when I’m watching movies, Netflix, tv, etc. However, I’m on an iPhone XS, and the pause and scroll buttons are at the bottom the screen near the home bar. On iPhone XS there is no home button, so there’s a bar at the bottom of the screen that you drag up to go home. The pause and scroll buttons are right where that bar is, and I can never use them. Instead I have to tap the A button, and swipe screen by screen in 30sec increments until I get to a scene I’m trying to see in a movie. It would be nice if the pause and scroll buttons were slightly higher away from the edges of screens so they don’t interfere with a slide home feature like on iPhone XS.
Horrible performance
by aarondeleys on 2019/01/09 23:15
Terrible app. If you’re using your phone as a mic with this app, prepare to be extremely annoyed and frustrated constantly. When in an Xbox Live party, I cannot go a full day without the app crashing at least 5 different times. Doesn’t matter if you’re not using any other apps and all other apps are closed, it will still crash. If you want to rejoin the party, you’ll need to fully quit the app and restarted it... several times. Sometimes i will have to close the app and restart it 4 times or more just for it to let me rejoin the party I was in before it crashed. The app doesn’t sync your party to the Xbox, so on the Xbox menu it says you’re not in a party. This is frustrating when you accidentally invite someone to a party instead of a game on the console, because it will make you leave the party on the app and place you in a party by yourself on the console. You’d think with the billions of dollars Microsoft has they’d be able to design an app that’s at least mediocre
Issue?
by Babyz_17 on 2017/09/13 07:36
I love the Xbox app and had no issues so far, but nowadays it seems as if when I log out and log into my other account everything gets messed up. Whether it's me getting messages from one account when I'm on the other, or it refuses to fully log into the account forcing me to close the app and re-log in. Another thing is that no matter if I'm on wifi or on my data, it can't show any of the sections: friends, clubs, etc. Even when I refresh it a bunch of times, close the app or login back in. It will just say "try again later", so I'm not sure if it's just on my end or what. But it's been getting really annoying seeing that. Other than than great app but it would be better if I knew why these issues keep happening.
Necessary, useful, and important app
by Bigpuppyman on 2018/08/15 04:22
Microsoft’s Xbox “Smartglass” app for the Xbox One is an incredible addition to any Xbox owner’s media management collection. The app can be used to control most functions on the Xbox, similar to the Apple remote app for the Apple TV. The app also displays information about specific content while it’s playing, as well as social information regarding your Friends’ online statuses. While this app is a useful and convenient tool for managing and running apps on your console, the user interface, while clean, runs slowly. The menu transition animations feel weighted, and seem to hold quick and learned app maneuvers back. I wish that the developers would either quicken the transition animations back-and-forth, or add a toggle to remove the feature all together. Besides that, the app is great and should be an addition to any Xbox One owner.
Very dissatisfied.
by Coolbear9754 on 2017/10/08 02:19
At first everything seemed fine with the app, until it kept denying my email when I tried to sign in. I was using the same email address I used with every other device. I triple-checked to see if it was the right one, and it was. Yet the app still would not take my email. In fact, I even made a new email to see if it would let me in. And even after that, it still wouldn’t work. I was looking forward to using this app. Perhaps a bug? Glitch? This really frustrates me. I made sure that I was using the correct email, and yet it would still not verify my email. Very dissatisfied with this app. Not to mention that one of the largest gaming companies worldwide created it. I was expecting a smooth flawless app that I could use to manage my Xbox account. And it wouldn’t even let me sign in. I know I’m not the only one having this issue. I bet others are as frustrated as me. Microsoft, please fix this error. Or at least respond to my review for instructions. Thank you for your time.
WiFi or maybe something else
by rgv108 on 2019/05/24 23:53
Ever since I updated this it has been sayin “something went wrong when loading the section” I’m not bragging but usually my WiFi is pretty good, but no matter what, it would always say that, I bet asphalt 9 legends needed more powerful WiFi just to play but an Xbox app??? Yea I don’t think it needs WiFi that powerful to work well, I turned off the device for like 5 min, turned it back on, same, turned of WiFi for 5 min and back on, same, reset WiFi (not the password) same, check wires, same, turned off iPad for longer amount of time, same, I think ye get what I’m sayin... I hope, I don’t realy know if it really is just my WiFi or something is going on, but if something is going on like some bug, please fix it, thank you and have a great day, or night...whenever you are reading this.
Privacy issue
by Nicole3452 on 2017/10/22 03:41
*update* Changed from 1 star to 4 stars because it appears you can no longer see that people are in a party when they are appearing offline. Yay! The only other bug I notice is that when someone adds me as a friend the notification stays up on my activity alerts tab for several days instead of going away when I click on it. Not a big deal tho. Thanks for the update! No complaints until a recent update which made it possible for people to see that I’m online and who I’m in party chat with even though I always appear offline. It completely defeats the purpose of appearing offline and brings up a privacy issue for me. I appear offline for a reason and absolutely hate that they made it possible for others to see when I’m online through the app and who I’m in a party with.
Messaging errors
by Tiny42205 on 2019/06/18 03:42
I would’ve gave the app a 5*, but it kept sending me notifications of my old messages with friends. It kept blowing up my phone and the messages won’t even show up. I have to keep refreshing all the time. I noticed the app be deleting all the old messages which is alright, I guess, but I didn’t want it to be deleted. Though, that’s really just not the problem. It doesn’t update on what people are playing on. Saying that they’re offline even though they are online. Those are just my 3 problems with the app. Hopefully it gets fixed because I’m really tired of the app spamming me old messages. I did delete the app and reinstalled it, but the same thing kept happing. Anyways, hopefully anyone reads this if they’re having the same problem. I use IOS if anyone is wondering. Thank you.
Useful. Also to the Developers...
by Dude******* on 2018/08/31 23:14
I’ve greatly enjoyed this app it’s useful and makes things simple. The new party feature was ingenious seriously love it. However, as an Xbox connoisseur and a diehard gamer their is something I feel would really make this app a must have for all Xbox gamers. Of course I’m talking about a download percentage tracker. Everyone who plays current gen games knows how big a digital game is, so most of us do something while it downloads. It’s would be great if we could be doing something or go somewhere and simply need to open the app and check the download percentage. That way you could start playing your new game the second it’s done downloading. Anyway that’s something to think about but for now the app is great keep up the good work Devs.
App is fine but could be fixed I bit
by bluepolarbear07 on 2019/08/26 05:29
So the Xbox app has a lot to offer but sometimes when you try to send messages the screen for message doesn’t work also it is annoying that you have to turn off you ringer or turn on do not disturb every time you play on the Xbox because say someone send a message or a party invite the both the Xbox and your phone make a noise and if you have someone like you work calling you when you are playing with you ringer off or do not disturb on then you do not get the call but I would say that if they added more power to the Xbox remote then this app would be basically perfect for anyone wanting another way of checking up on what is new with the Xbox and your friends on the Xbox also someone please fix the messages problem a soon as possible thanks
Good
by App.Reviewer1 on 2019/01/12 21:18
So what happened was I was playing with the app to join my friends party. I exited the app for a bit and when I opened the app, it showed that everything wasn’t able to connect. It said all my friends were offline and couldn’t show any party details. So I tried reloading it a couple times and even powered off my phone just to see if it would work but it didn’t. So I deleted the app and re-downloaded it. Then I had a whole new problem. Once I finished logging in it showed the loading spinner. I waited 5 minutes and closed the tab to restart it. I tried again and it still didn’t work. The same problem is happening to my friend. Maybe it could be from the rain. But if you have any suggestions or recommendations or any solutions or the source of the problem I would greatly appreciate it.
Awesome how can you do it?
by :)funny girl on 2019/06/07 04:07
First of all the Xbox Console is the best to use of it but then you get BETTER features to go with on your phone. You can change your avatar, color, gamer pic, name, bio, location and motto. You can even text your friends if your on a drive or a different area when your not using your Xbox, to watch broadcasts tell your friends start one! You may follow, donate and chat in a nice way example giving sparks or saying nice things and in the home area for the app you will see daily/recent pictures your friends took earlier as in new things! Why is the app so great? I'm not even sure myself, Xbox/Microsoft is just great! But the controller is a little not as good the PS4 control the RT/R2 LT/L2 RB/R1 LB/L1 PS4's button of those are smoother so to me the controls a bit better.
IN APP ISSUES
by Honsos on 2019/11/11 06:56
This app used to work smoothly, but now, as of late, the app itself, as well as every page within it takes an unreasonably long time to load. I’m so frustrated that I’ve even recorded the load duration, and it’s average comes out around 2 minutes. That may not seem like much, but when you sit there and watch that little circle go round and round for 160 seconds when it should only take a few, it starts to wear on your patience. On top of all that waiting, any time a page actually manages to load up, it’s no good. When I look for clubs through certain games the app kicks me out. If I search for a profile or attempt to glance at my activity, it kicks me out. I have the iPhone 7 with 50GB of storage, of which I’m only using 29 gigs. Whenever I go into the Xbox app I make sure to clear any cache I have on my device, and clear any other cookies and or tabs I might have open, so this app should NOT be timing out, nor should it take a century and a half to load. I chose to rate this Xbox app one star in the hopes of gaining the developers attention. I grew up on PlayStation, but turned to Xbox in my teens and have been a loyal customer ever since, but too often are Xbox consumers’ questions, comments, and concerns ignored by the company. Please, take some time to look into the app. Investigate and do your best to resolve these issues. Thank you for reading my review, I genuinely appreciate your consideration.
Bugs: the app
by Matt20264 on 2018/09/28 22:07
Amazingly, the app has bugs that have persisted through several updates. The friends list won’t load, going to profile settings tells you access is restricted and good luck getting anything to load. If this app were advertised as a giant bug, it’d get a full five stars, outstanding realism of bugs. Despite all that, it has some good features especially party chat and messaging. You can even buy canes and push the download to your Xbox when it decides to load. While that’s good, what good is it really when it doesn’t work? Sometimes I can only get it to work but signing out and signing back in. Yeah I can’t find the sign out sometimes, I think it’s in profile settings. Jokes on me I guess since I can’t access profile setting because I don’t have permissions to my account. Fix all that, I’ll change my review back to five stars guaranteed.
Craps Out And Glitches Frequently
by Heavy Metalist on 2018/03/19 00:04
The refresh button glitches all the time when I try to see which of my friends are online. I press it a dozen times before I realize it's there simply for decoration. Erasing an unwanted conversation (in message inbox) has recently become impossible. After tapping 'erase' or 'delete', it gives you the illusion that it's reloading your list of conversations and is going to get rid of the one(s) you chose to eliminate, but no, you'll still see it there. The app glitches on a basic request. I'm giving it a 2-star rating because it's easy to file complaints on failures who chose to send angry messages after they lose (I personally receive many from raging clowns who can't handle losing legitimately). Naturally, this being a Microsoft product, it isn't without it's issues. For some reason, you can't file against recent XBOX 360 users; like it only focuses on Xbox One recents. I would ask, but MS will just say "file complaints thru the 360 menu for 360 users". Overall, it's a garbage app, but comes in handy for a quick 'filing on sore losers and keeps you up-to-date on the activity-feed of your friends and your own, should you chose to follow likes, comments and shares. *I also wanna note that the issues I've experienced occurred AFTER the latest "update". Classic MS, eh? The more they try to fix what isn't broken, the worse they make it and then wonder why their products fail.
The best system out there
by Tiffany's Sexy Lover on 2019/12/12 02:51
Xbox has the best games. Very smooth Online game play. You can’t compare the other console to Xbox, why you ask, The social community is the best, link up with online friends to play multiple player or play duels on campaign mode. Even if you rather play solo, the graphics are amazing, and there are so many different game to choose from, even the throwbacks from XBOX 360. I really like meeting new friends with common interest in gaming. You won’t find another game console that has such easy way to manage your accounts, or settings, personalize your Xbox main screens to fit what you like, and how you want to play. XBOX success is that they listen to there customers, and not just give customers what they thing they want.
For the most part great, missing some key features
by Yoshio95 on 2018/04/07 12:30
For the most part this app is a great addition to extend the overall ability to use your Xbox for instance if you don’t want to kill your battery on the controller from watching movies and videos or if you are in a chat group this app works great, or if you are gaming and need to chat with your team. The cons of this is when you are using this as a remote you are very very very limited to what you can do. It more often than not will disconnect you and you won’t be able to reconnect from time to time. The reason behind giving this only 4 stars is because of the limited mobility of the control system. As it functions at the basics only. If you can add the ability for us to enter our passcodes via the app, that would be amazing and very helpful.
Pretty good but needs work.
by PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU BUY on 2018/06/25 13:14
Please stop making my controller disconnect when I am using the app. Also please allow either a separate chat party on the app, separate from the xbox party, enabling 2 parties at the same time or change the settings so that when you invite someone to a party on the app they join the party on the xbox instead of the party in the app or allow both options. Also please create the option to choose to join a party from the app which places you in the party on the xbox instead of the party in the app, as well as the choice to join the party in the app on your phone. Also please allow the option to switch back and forth. Also please create a history on the xbox and in the app so you can go back to where you were before, both with parties and games/apps/menus.
Mostly great
by James Sumners on 2017/11/25 15:01
I really like being able to see who is doing what without having to turn my console on; this lets me know if I even want to do so. And I like being able to buy games and push them to my console. Being able to send messages is also very handy. The down side that has me writing this review, however, has to do with notifications. You can get notifications for some useful things, like getting a new message or a change to an LFG you created/subscribed to. But while you can get a notification that a friend has started streaming (I couldn't care any less), you _can't_ get a notification that a friend has posted an LFG. Seems to me that if a friend is looking for people to play with, you'd like to know about that more than if they just want to show you what they're playing.
YoGurT
by SamuelDehCow fortnite name on 2019/08/15 20:17
Hi, I would like a small update to the Xbox app, I would want it to be so that when you err off the app and get onto another game, or turn off your phone, please make the app give you a small notification for if you would want to leave a party, (a party that you are in on the Xbox app), or make it so the app would just keep on going with the party or chat that you are in, because I want to play games with my friend, but I don’t want to leave the party, because every time I play a different game the Xbox app always leaves the party, or chat, so please make t so that the Xbox app does not leave the party, or chat, so I can play a different game on my phone while talking with multiple people, on the Xbox app, ok, byeeeee.
Good unless your trying to talk to people
by Sablinval on 2019/06/25 00:39
I have the misfortune of not having to use this app in order to talk to people on xbox. It’s pretty good in most other aspects, but if you’re trying to talk to people and join a party through the app it can become a pain. Sometimes when you attempt to join parties it will just crash the app, if you receive an invite while using the app it will also sometimes crash the app. This can be very annoying as even restarting my phone won’t help the issue sometimes and I have to wait until it resolves itself. It would be reckless to say that this is major hindrance to my every day use, but when it does happen, I normally have to spend 20 mins or more figuring out how to fix it or ways around it. This is my only major quarrel with this app however, and it hasn’t given me any other issues.
Fix your console
by TacoBoy64766599 on 2019/10/24 01:49
Your console has some problems. I can’t count how many times that I’ve had problems, game issues, and just overall bad experiences with the system. I’m a busy guy and nothing is more frustrating then coming home after a long day at work, or just getting back from the gym, then having the console completely shut down. Sometimes a game will crash right before I get the chance to save. I understand that some games may just be ports from pc but, I don’t think that’s an excuse for it to happen with almost every game I play. Being someone who has played many games, I think your games should be thoroughly tested before ever even entering the Xbox store. Countless times have I been disappointed by games that I would love to play, Only after spending my money on that game. I pay for Xbox live, the game pass, and occasionally I will buy a game. I don’t think it’s fair for me, or anyone else, to not get their money’s worth. I have an Xbox one S. Thank you.
Amazing but...
by FLOPERGUY on 2019/02/03 20:42
This app is one of the best app I’ve ever used. Easy access to everything on the go. Very responsive, and very easy to follow menu like the friends button to see what your friends are doing. Message them. See what’s happening in the clubs you’re in. But there is an issue going on that almost every feature I use in the app says that I need a adult account which has never happened before when I tried to change the gamer pic or something like that. So I go to my Xbox to change the pic which is slightly hard but I was fine with it until it also said I needed an adult account. I don’t know what’s happening as it spread across from my phone to my Xbox. I was hoping for it to disappear for over 5 months, but I still can’t change my picture. Please, if you’re able to fix this then please do. Otherwise it’s a amazing app.
Very Broken even after updates
by ododdn on 2019/01/06 22:59
It can be an amazing app when it works. Which it rarely does. So many issues with the party and “privacy settings” and etc. I’ll name them all so hopefully they will be fixed (or not). One issue, when I get a call the app usually disconnects after which is understandable, what isn’t is when I try to join back only for it to kick me out and say that there was “something wrong”. And also ANOTHER PROBLEM I JUST HAD is when I got a phone call and came back, I couldn’t even join back to the Xbox party and ALSO I CANNOT USE ANY SOCIAL FEATURES BECAUSE OF PRIVACY SETTINGS NEEDING TO BE CHANGED! Another thing which is the worst is when I try to join a party, the app crashes and when I get an invite or ANY NOTIFICATION from the Xbox app while using it, the app closes out. And that’s what I experienced always. And hopefully HOPEFULLY it will get fixed.
Crashes all the time.
by gunny13 on 2019/09/03 06:31
I really like this app when it works. I use it primarily as a remote for my Xbox One so that I don’t run down the batteries. If I leave the app open and lock my phone when I unlock it the app has crashed, no big deal I just close it and open it again and it connects right back up. However today I opened the app cold and nothing. I go to use the remote feature, open the remote and tap the A button section and nothing. Doesn’t respond to anything. I closed the app and opened it multiple times still the same thing. I went ahead and uninstalled the app and reinstalled it and still nothing. It seems like a pretty basic feature to get this to work on an iPhone 8. The only thing I can think of is that I updated my OS to 12.4.1 yesterday and that seems to be when the trouble started.
Problems connecting to Xbox
by .Matty679 on 2019/04/12 06:07
I’ve had this app for a long time and I really enjoy it. It’s much faster to send messages on here if you’re in the middle of an online game that can’t pause and a friend messages you. It’s more convenient. However, lately I haven’t been able to use the in-app remote on my app, which makes it so much easier when I get home from a long day at work and don’t feel like turning my Xbox remote on, choosing a show to watch on Netflix, and turning the remote off. It’s a quick and easy way to choose a show remote-free. I’ve tried putting in the IP address, made sure it was on the same network, and I went to the settings and the app connectibility and everything should be working but it’s not. I’d really appreciate it if you address the problem and fix it. I will then leave a 5 star rating once my app works as a remote again. Thank you.
Bugs... but overall okay
by Kyra Pemberton on 2018/01/02 06:30
I appreciate the connivence of being able to access the social features and the basic remote but my main complaint is the lack of the keyboard actually working. I’ve tried re-installing the app and restarting the console but even though it worked briefly when I first connected to the Xbox the keyboard doesn’t pop up anymore. There should be an option to input text from your phone manually, like a button to you can press in the remote section. I mean honestly typing on the keyboard is the only truly inconvenient thing to do on the Xbox. Looking through highlights and achievements and the likes are all easily done, but typing is something that can’t be improved too much UI wise on the console itself, which is why this used to be useful. Please fix this.
Great app
by Catskratch22 on 2018/01/11 12:16
Works great and has a lot of content you can browse while your watching tv or playing a game. Also doubles your phone as a remote wich can be very useful when watching a movie or tv. 5 stars..... fast foward 2 years later this app continues to stay relevant and very useful/fun. I constantly find myself viewing my in game clips or those of friends while watching tv and also browsing the store for new games and content I may be interested in. I also like that I receive messages from friends even tho my system is off and I'm not home allowing me to respond and coordinate a co op session for later on. I'm still really happy with this app after over 2 years of use my review remains at 5 stars!
Needs some fixing
by Brerme on 2018/10/02 00:59
So I have some friends that have their own Xbox so we talk and play together but when I am away I use the app to chat and message to them but this app crashes a lot when I am in a party with my friends but also sometimes when I want to text my friends the app says access to feature blocked and it is very annoying, even now it crashes so much when I am messaging them and then leaving the app and opening it again so it delays me like 20 seconds although I would say that the uses that this app provides is enough to say this app is worth it with its features to talk to others, message, look at the activity feed, and troll my sister with the Xbox remote build in overall good app feature wise but crashes a ton

Party chat freezes after an hour.
by Aaron254 on 2019/12/13 05:23
Buggy app. Please fix. My party just stops working after an hour. Has happened consistently for a month now. I have uninstalled the app. I have even upgraded to an iPhone 11 and this is still an issue.
Completely bugged.
by JayJ0034 on 2019/12/13 05:05
The new update to this app is terrible. Everytime I try to enter a party it disconnects and crashes. It worked fine before this update. But it’s really bad now.
Downloads updates
by ToooDelirious on 2019/12/13 04:46
Wish this app cant start viewing the download or updates thats going on the system. Would be really noce if this app can do that👍🏽
Overall pretty good!
by Redneck Idiot on 2019/12/13 04:08
Very convenient for xbox media and especially when you can control your xbox. My only issue is that my app is constantly crashing, I’ll start up the app then about 30 seconds in the app will crash etc.

This was 5 stars but now it’s 1 because pur usual y’all don’t fix nothing until y’all are ready .. it’s been 1 week and it still say I need to update it when I try and join party chat on Xbox app .. you all are worthless really..
Let us delete
by SniggleSnapV2 on 2019/12/12 04:56
It’s a great app and I absolutely love it but what would make it better is if they allowed us to delete the clips from Xbox live through the app
Convenient but has issues
by InfamousHuss on 2019/12/12 03:27
When someone is broadcasting you can’t share audio on iOS or Android from what I can see, and I think it has something to do with the xbox app being linked to the xbox that’s broadcasting

Missing important features
by AddMythicalWolf830oMCPE on 2019/12/12 00:03
I’m required to update the app to join parties but there hasn’t been an update on the store for two weeks. Please fix fast [old] (Referring to party invites) I can send invites successfully but I have rarely received invites from friends in the app (not a problem on the Xbox console). can’t view past invites if I do even receive them on the app. I would like to be able to join posts but because I can’t get invites I’m unable to.
Great app overall besides one thing...
by Galaxy_Love on 2019/12/11 23:37
So I like it it’s a great app I use it to play Minecraft I just got a new phone and sadly forgot my password so I made i new account. I made i new account and decided to use my free gamer tag change I try it and it says unable to change gamer tag try again later(or something like that).So this happened last year...and it been saying that ever since. And I’m stuck with a stupid gamer tag. I really hope you see this. I was going to give five stars and this is the only this ruining it. I hope you have a good day.
Party chat problems
by Oddbdyfzvb on 2019/12/11 23:30
Every time i try and join an xbox live party it glitches and the whole app crashes
Great use for parties but too many bugs
by Corey J Fontenot on 2019/12/11 23:21
I like the app for getting in and playing with friends online and accessing parties easier without the hassle of going through the xbox instead of interrupting you’re game play. HOWEVER: The app has way too many bugs it either does not load looking for group pages sometimes or when you go to create a post for a game it crashes and kicks you out of the app and does this on and off sometimes when you try again. Sometimes my friends do not appear online when they are online. The chat when you join a party sometimes does not connect fully and forces you to leave the party and join back in or if you created it, to start another party, if it even works the second time.
FIX PARTY ISSUE
by Rafael James Puig on 2019/12/11 20:27
Every time I try to join a party invite it says I need to update my app when it already is updated. Fix your app Xbox so I can play with people and not commit suicide.
FAKE REVIEWS

Giving it four stars... everything is great except a couple of things... party chat is not working properly.. I can hear my friends but they can’t hear me! Also the audio on the vids I saved is not working at all .. the party chat situation has been a problem for a while now please fix it
So much potential
by 6_0 Rose on 2019/12/11 07:19
This app has so much potential but he lacks in the most important thing. The parties are low and crash’s every few minutes. I can’t communicate with my teammates in a party because the party fades in and out and the app crashes making it hard to play effectively among teammates.
Recent issues
by Scjfifhtikslh on 2019/12/11 06:51
I’ve always used this app and up until the last week or so. The app crashes regularly and I lag out of parties consistently even though my internet has been the same for over two years. Love this app and still wanna use it. Just some bugs that need fixing.

What’s taking so long?
by Carabthearab on 2019/12/10 06:10
This app has always been one that seems like it’s tying to get better but never really improves. The only reason I have tho things to watch captures but I can’t even do that without wasting 45 minutes of my life at a time. And I doubt you can even see this cause your Shiite app won’t even show my writing because it doesn’t work. Sincerely yours, Mr Guy is is

BROKEN APP AT THE MOMENT

DROP AN UPDATE FOR THE APP PARTYS DONT WORK THANKS
The worst app
by Dennytrill on 2019/12/09 17:04
Can’t even sustain a party through phone.
Key Board Glich
by ningagirly16 on 2019/12/09 13:13
So I logged out of one of my accounts to sign in to my other one and the keyboard stopped popping up. So I can’t log in because the keyboard won’t work. I already deleted the app and refreshed it a few times but the key board still won’t work. Please fix this
The app is unreliable
by Shady_750 on 2019/12/09 07:08
So I would probably give this app a 4/5. If used to handle the party chat decently, I could send messages easily, and I could see my activity pretty quick (note I say ‘used to’). Ever since the most recent update I have had so many problems with this app. First of all one of my friends I can talk to for about 30 seconds before he cuts out, and it goes for everyone in the party. Another problem is that the app crashes way more than it should. The previous update I would have 1-3 crashes a month and now it’s 5 a day. Then also the app will just kick me out of parties but for some reason still let me talk to people. Let me explain, the app will say for other people [PRIVATE] had been kicked from the party and for them I will no longer appear in the party if the check the party, but for some reason they can still hear me and I can still hear them. If I try to leave the party and join back in afterwards the app will crash on me, keep in mind this happens every time I use party chat, meaning the app almost always crashes on me. So to summarize. I’m disappointed RIP the Xbox app😭

Can’t join parties
by hujnvdfiijfdf on 2019/12/08 16:42
The main thing I use this app for is joining parties and LFG posts. Every time I try to join a party i get a text box saying “Update to latest version to join party” even though I already have the latest version. Also, there’s a huge amount of time between getting party invites, on my Xbox I get the notification immediately but the app takes an extra 10-30 seconds. Please fix this since it’s what I, and most users, use the app for the most.

On the fence now...
by Livingbyluck on 2019/12/08 09:51
At first, I absolutely loved it! The way it use to be worked great. Had it’s minor dips, but after a few patch things got back to normal. They the update...and this is why I’m now in the fence. It dips a lot more. Trying to jump from my profile, to my son’s makes for a more time consuming issue and having to resign in all the time after signing out of one or the other gets old quick. I wish they just left it alone and fixed minor bugs. But bigger and bolder and shiny and new is the fab nowadays.

This app is a very good and convenient app. But I have a problem with something about. When you logout, it doesn’t show the different accounts in one area. Instead you have to logout, log back in and press different account. This is very inconvenient and I hope the developers will read this and fix it.

Let me SIGN IN!!
by Sands_world on 2019/12/08 00:34
When I downloaded this app, I started to sign in with “my” Xbox Account. After trying different passwords I use, it said there was a problem with the account. Then I realized I was using the wrong account. But when I tried to sign in with a different account, it wouldn’t change from the error screen showing I have a problem with “my” account. Xbox please fix this bug so when this happens, you can choose to sign in with different accounts.

Not satire
by I hate chase banks on 2019/12/07 20:35
Are you tired of your application always working? Well great news! You can download this Xbox app. It’s all the reward of getting absolutely nothing accomplished while requiring you to put forth lots of effort into making the app work. Want to type a message only to not be able to send it? Xbox has got you covered. Ever wanted to look for a new or sentimentally old game only to hit an unexpected error pushing out to the cover of the Microsoft store? Again Xbox can help you. This is possibly Microsoft’s largest embodiment of a middle finger to the people who built them by buying their products
It will not open

Why don’t you let me change my name on the Xbox app I haven’t changed my name yet and it has been a month since I TrueDepth and then I trey again but it still doesn’t work so eather let me change my name like you are supposed to do or you people are lazy.
It’s ok
by Timbo5500 on 2019/12/07 11:33
The app is ok but the Microsoft store never wants to load anything. If I wanted to buy something I’d have to wait until I got home instead of having the convenience of using the app.

I finally got Minecraft pocket edition and it requested I choose a gamer tag. To do this it forced me to download this Xbox app. I changed the tag with the one free change it allows and it did NOTHING but it now says that I used up my free name change option when it never actually changed it! While I’m sure it works well for some people I needed it for one simple function and one simple function only and it didn’t work! I’m upset.
Fix This ASAP
by djsocool5 on 2019/12/07 03:12
Microsoft, if your going to keep your app like this, U aint getin credit, We advise to fix the crashes and more, U got a f* week
Few problems but Wonderful overall
by 101bry on 2018/02/15 14:58
Recently they came out with an update that has changed this app for the better. They allowed people to join parties on the go. This app is wonderful I love it so much. If I had one wish , it would be for the app to have a feature to (if you Xbox is on a connected to WiFi ) stream it to your phone and connect your controller to your phone maybe using a assesorie(even if you have to be on the same WiFi’s I want it😂 but if you don’t OMG I WOULD LOVE THIS APP SO MUCH) this is probably close to impossible but I have hope to the future . I thought they could never add joining parties to the app , they did . Let’s see what happens in the future (please launch the update idea I have I will go to the store buy the wire and connect my controller to my phone turn my Xbox on from school and play during lunch 😂)
Great but has some bugs
by Main_Tain22 on 2017/09/25 03:47
I really really like smartglass. It's interconnected with Microsoft products and for the most part works pretty well. On the other hand, there are definitely some issues. Data on the console and data on the game are not always synced. You may have deleted a msg on console but that same msg may appear unread on the app. The remote function is iffy at best. Sometimes it will connect and sometimes it tells you to turn features on in the settings of your console. Not only that, the setting feature that it directs you to does not exist. Well it exist, but it is not setup to change device settings. And yes I am on the same network, in case you were asking yourself that question. The app also crashes ALOT. Leaving the app running in the background of my iPhone 6+ is a sure way to an app crash around the second or third reopen without clearing running apps. Regardless of these minor hiccups in functionality and usability, the Xbox app is likely my top 3 favorite apps. It's fast. It's responsive. It's involved. Furthermore, does exactly what I want it to do and that is to connect with online friends, family and game community. The bugs, to say the least, are neck and neck to tie last place on a long list of "Things that give me a headache each day." I'm sure an entry level software engineer could fix the lows with some testing. Later. And give me a job lol😐😬
Good concept, but incredibly broken.
by +Killer47+ on 2019/07/29 23:29
The Xbox app is amazing the first time you see it. You can access you account on the go and do so many things. However, the app’s downfalls become apparent very soon. First of all, you need a wifi connection to access the app, it will not work with cellular data. So, the whole aspect of xbox on the go is completely thrown out of the window. Secondly, you’ll be very luck if you can actually use the app. For at least one week out of the month the app just doesn’t work. You try to launch it, but you are met with either a blank green screen or a n infinite loading wheel. I’ve tried restarting, redownloading, and even costumer support, but nothing can fix it. Over time it will just fix itself and one day you’ll try to launch the app and it will just work for no reason just as suddenly as it stopped working. My final issue it the built in keyboard. Xbox has a wonderful system that detects the keyboard on your xbox and allows you to type on your phone. This is great for multiplayer games with a chat system. However, like the app itself this feature is very spotty. Sometimes the keyboard on the app will just stop popping up and it won’t ever pop up for the next week to month. Then it will just magically fix itself again. There are also tons of little bugs that litter that app that at sometimes, makes the app completely unusable. The Xbox app definitely doesn’t deserver the 4.7 out of 5 that it currently has.
Happy w/app. Recent update needs fixing
by Partycrasherz (Avery) on 2019/11/24 10:58
I’ve been using the app for about a year now. Before when I had a Samsung (and soon hope to go back) and now obviously on iPhone. The app works very well for everything it offers. It’s improved it’s ability to connect to your Xbox and be used as a controller for Xbox functions and keyboard amongst many other services in app that were improved and work almost perfectly. I see now that this update has improved the quality of voice/party chat which was kinda mediocre at times and can’t wait to try. Will update after. I hope to see the ability to join the party chat through your phone and not be disconnected from party chat from the Xbox. It would be a wonderful fix if I were able to listen to the party through my headphones connected to my controlled but use the phone as a mic, as my current headset has two aux cables preventing me from seamlessly using both audio and mic functions... Update: party chat is not stable and my messages with other players aren’t updating correctly. Kinda disappointed...
Does some things reliably; some things rarely.
by PolarSpectram on 2018/05/22 14:07
You can always see who’s online from your friends list, and what they’re playing. Messaging works well too. However; the ONE THING the app is absolutely advantageous over a controller for accessing your console with - does not work consistently. The on screen keyboard, lets you type quickly on your phone - much faster than using a controller. When it works, this feature is extremely convenient, letting you input text to your Xbox or games in time spans you never could without the app. But good freakn’ luck getting the keyboard on the app to come up when you have an on-screen keyboard on your console. It’ll work sometimes, and other times you can pull up the keyboard on your Xbox again and again and again - to have the app do nothing. Which, needless to say - is very frustrating. To have such a convenient feature work intermittently and be completely unusable at other times is maddening. If that singular function worked reliably, I would say this is a magnificent app. But right now; it just doesn’t.
Great app... just a suggestion.
by jimlag91 on 2019/03/02 18:00
I love using this app when i am away from home to view clips, read and respond to messages but there is one thing i believe would be an amazing addition to the app. We all know the xbox one was designed to be the ultimate home console for both games an media, but how about security? I know the xbox ones kinnect was discontinued however it could regain some popularity with the ability to view what the kinnect sees when you are away from home. I just recently adopted a puppy and currently am looking into security cameras for the house so i can check up on my boy when im away from home. It would be an amazing feature to be able to open the app and see whats going on in my livingroom. I doubt this idea would be implemented however if it was, i believe a lot of people will want to get their hands on the kinnect again. Aside from my suggestion, i love the app and if this idea is considered and applied, i would change my rating from 4 stars to 5.
I spend alot of time on this app but somethings stand to be improved.
by yankees4eva69 on 2019/02/02 15:17
I enjoy most aspects of the app except for two things. The store and playing your clips. I find it really inconsistent when you’re watching clips you have recorded. Sometime the clip will run from start to finish without interruption and other times it struggles with 5 seconds in. I have a decent connection and I find that even when i’m using LTE it still struggles to play smoothly. My biggest problem however is the store. I wish it was better about showing new games that have released. As apposed to showing the most popular games which it does. I know I can search specific game but i’m looking for those gems and I cannot find them if the store only shows the fortnites and the fifas of the worlds. I know the phone app shouldn’t be the place for discovery but anything is better than what they currently have. Including the dlc tab which is usually just occupied with mutiple dlc of the same game. Other than my complaints I like this app very much.
Messaging Issue
by Pandakid85 on 2019/05/28 19:24
I absolutely love this app; I’m able to play with my friends, view clips easily, see who’s online and what they’re playing, and the messaging aspect was great... until it wasn’t. I wasn’t getting notifications even though they were on, and it was stuck on the last time I texted this person so I had to refresh it every couple of minutes. That’s not even the worst part unfortunately. Now, my messages won’t send and all my conversations are gone: they won’t even load and I can’t talk to my friends! This is the only way I can talk to most of my friends so I’m upset to be out of contact with them. I have tried to reset my phone, and even deleted and redownloaded the app, but none of it worked. I really love this app and would love to give it five stars, but I can’t if there is a barrier of communication in the way. I hope you guys can get this fixed efficiently and hopefully stop this problem from occurring in the future.
Works as well as it should
by Metthroid on 2018/01/07 19:21
The app offers a lot of useful capabilities that I find very useful in my play. Everything works well enough that I have little problems when utilizing its functions. Some bugs are present, but everything has its kinks. These bugs are often fixed by simply restarting the app, or in a few cases restarting the Xbox it’s linked to. Anyone that plays Xbox should probably have this app, seeing as it’s both free and rather useful. The ability to see and respond to messages, even if you aren’t on your Xbox is a great ability. The ability to tell which friends are online by going into the app or having it send you a notification of when they get online is also a favorite of mine. And the ability to type and copy & paste with your phone makes sending messages and inputting commands a breeze. I recommend this to any Xbox user, there’s really no reason to not have it as far as I know. Great work, Microsoft.
Convenient - Update
by Mac Kraft on 2017/09/06 02:43
I love this app! It has all the essentials for an on the go gamer. There's only one small issue that I've noticed and compared to the rest of the amazing features, it's a relatively small gripe. Nonetheless, the messaging system within the app works wonderfully but it also contains the only thing that bugs me. It's very time consuming to cleanup or delete old messages. Having to slide left and delete them all individually takes quite a while if you receive messages frequently. Also the difference in text color between a new message and a message marked as "read" is so subtle that it becomes difficult to locate unread messages when trying to cleanup notifications. My suggestions: Install a feature that will let the user select multiple messages at a time and delete them or mark as read. Change the color of the font on new messages and read messages to something more drastic. Perhaps a green text for new messages and white text for read messages. Overall, as I stated in the beginning, I love this app! And I believe updating the messaging system will only increase my enjoyment and ease of use for everyone. Cheers! PS - I pre-installed Destiny 2 with this app and I'm waiting patiently to regain my Light when the clock hits midnight! Xbox, the best place to play Destiny 2 hands down! Console exclusives don't hold a candle to our community. Find me in the EDZ, guardians. Gamer tag: Surelok
Buggiest App Created by Microsoft Ever!
by AstralElegance on 2018/11/21 13:51
The app breaks down and has to be completely restarted EVERY time you receive a phone call or an alarm goes off on your phone. The app breaks down and has to be restarted even if you choose to ignore a phone call you receive! I literally NEVER write reviews but this application has been SO INCREDIBLY buggy I felt I had to give feedback. This is hands down the worst product I’ve ever used that is produced by Microsoft. The application also randomly shifts between using the speaker mode and using the hands-on mode when talking to people using the Xbox app making it incredibly frustrating when you are in the middle of a game trying to hear your teammate and all of a sudden your teammates voices are cut down to a whisper because your xbox app messed up again. Bottom line, I got this app to be able to talk to my friends on Xbox live without a mic, and if you are trying to use the application for the same thing be prepared to deal with a lot of frustration. My advice, don’t use the app and just go buy a mic and save yourself hours of frustration dealing with one of the world’s buggiest apps. Yeah
Its been almost 9 months guys, c’mon.
by Odstfan6 on 2018/12/11 14:50
I have brought this issue up not once, but twice before and this is the third time I am bringing it up. The screen recording. For the love of god please find a way to fix this. I have a YT channel named “ShisnoGaming” and all of my videos from about 7 months ago to today don’t have any game audio in the clips because I have had to record them off of the website from my mobile device. I have to do this because every time I screen record off of this app, the screen goes black and no audio plays. PLEASE FIX THIS. I was able to get audio from this app when it worked and I dont know why it does not anymore. I currently cant afford a capture card so this is my only option. I want my game audio back so bad! Other than this problem, this is a great app and very convenient for usage so thats why my review is four stars. Please fix this problem as soon as possible!
It’s a really cool app but needs to be fixed up a little bit
by soloangel07 on 2018/11/11 06:40
I really enjoy this app, you can view your game clips and share them, upload them, save them, and message through Xbox so much easier and all it’s really great and useful but one main thing that I hope gets fixed really soon, is a bug with parties. Imagine how annoying it is, you are in the middle of a game you are talking to your friends laughing then all of a sudden, you can’t hear them anymore, you look down on your phone (because that’s what you are using for the party) and your Xbox app restarted itself and it keeps happening, over and over. It gets really annoying. Friends have to keep inviting me over and over in the middle of their games because my Xbox app keeps restarting itself in mid conversation. So that’s my main thing but besides that’s it’s a really useful app and if you have Xbox I do recommend you get this.
Store Section Still Doesn’t Show Sale Games
by N0iSEA on 2018/12/09 19:09
The Microsoft Store portion is essentially useless for people who prefer to browse the games that are on sale each week. The only sale games it shows are the Games with Gold ones, which represent only a very small fraction of the sale priced games under “Deals” each week and it never includes the biggest deals and best games. Microsoft has good sales on digital games but they strongly deter you from using the app to buy them with the poor design. The big winner in this programming fail are Sony and Nintendo. I check all 3 digital stores each week and buy the games that are the lowest price. Since sony and nintendo actually have a deals section Microsoft has lost out on at least several thousand dollars just from me over the last few years when I bought games from their competitors. Had this app actually shown the Deals I would have definitely bought many of those games on Xbox One - especially since my PS hard drives (both external and internal) are nearly full because the PSN store sales are easy to view.
Been using this for a year and still glitched
by Diagonalley on 2017/10/20 15:06
I’ve done reviews before and the same people issues are there. Messages from friends come up on my screen with the complete message for all to see. Doesn’t matter if it’s locked or not. So have have to set my phone notifications to not preview at all which therefore requires me to open up the app every time a I a generalized “Xbox notification” on my iPhone. Why can it go back to beeping with a discreet “ you gave a message from John Doe gamer tag”? That was the best way but it’s been a year. Next the app starts to randomly show all my friends offline whenever it wants to when I know do a fact they are on the app. Also we use to have time stamps for when a message came through the app now I have no idea when it was sent if I don’t hear the first and only beep. They do a lot of updates and such but I just want basic message functioning cuz that my main reason for using the app.
Opinion and a Thankful person.
by IIx2IM1NiK4NxII on 2017/12/17 07:38

The xbox app is a good idea. You can message your friends, look at yours or other clips, and join a party. But it is really bugged and they need to fix the lag when you watch clips. It’s very annoying watching someone’s clip and then it freezes but the clip is still going. And it take a long time to load a clip. In my opinion, xbox needs to allow an option when you watch a clip, you can change the quality to make it run smoother at least. At this point, xbox really disappointed me with the whole xbox industry when it comes to games. It’s like they don’t care about the app. In my view at least. Messaging in xbox also has some bug. It says I have a message but I really don’t and when I do see one and I open it and back out, it still says that there is a message.
Nearly a perfect app!
by James2277 on 2019/01/02 14:36
I’ve read many reviews about people having bug/glitch issues, and I can say I’ve never, even since before Xbox One came out, had issues running this app on my iPhone 6. The only thing I would make an adjustment to, is purchasing Xbox 360 backward compatible games. For those that don’t know, we can’t do it through the app. I love to constantly look through Games with Gold (when I’m away from my Xbox, such as at work) every week and on the reset days (1st and 16th of every month) to see what’s free/discounted, and I just wish that I could buy and start downloads for the Xbox 360 games without always needing to go to Xbox’s website. Besides that, again I love this app and I’ve been using it for about 4 years now. Keep up the good work Microsoft!
Ups and downs
by Yeah, I'm that guy on 2018/07/30 16:49
This app is a great companion to the Xbox allowing you to type on your Xbox from your phone, but some drawbacks to that is it doesnt always stay connected to the Xbox for some reason. Also something is lost to see updated is making it a lot easier to look at screenshots and video as that either takes forever to load or never loads at all. I’d like to be able to clean up my storage of my clips and screenshots so I can upload more stuff from my Xbox and this app would be a great place to be able to do that. Also as another reviewer wrote, it doesn’t always sync messages completely so that the app is as updated as the Xbox, even when the Xbox is on and connnected to the app, which I find very strange. But other than that I like the rest of the functionality. Hopefully this will get read by the developers and these issues can get updated.
App crashes whenever I sign into account
by Toph110 on 2019/04/28 23:51
So I’ve been using this app for awhile but over the past couple weeks whenever I went to send a message to someone it says this feature can’t be accessed because my privacy settings prevent this from happening so I couldn’t find anything to change in my privacy settings so I tried to delete the app and sign back in and low and behold it worked. So for about a day everything was working normal but then the other day it signed me out for no reason and now whenever I try to sign back in the app crashes. Here’s the catch. I have another Xbox account that I can sign into totally fine and it works fine, but my main Xbox account whenever I try to sign in it doesn’t work. I would really appreciate it if this could be looked at it. It is very annoying. But all in all when working properly the app is great
Remote feature
by DannyDsta on 2019/11/28 17:42
App works great for screen shots and game captures, to see other Feeds. I mostly use the app for its Xbox remote feature, where it mimics a Xbox controller. The Remote feature is good, I use it a lot for when I’m watching movies, Netflix, tv, etc. However, I’m on an iPhone XS, and the pause and scroll buttons are at the bottom the screen near the home bar. On iPhone XS there is no home button, so there’s a bar at the bottom of the screen that you drag up to go home. The pause and scroll buttons are right where that bar is, and I can never use them. Instead I have to tap the A button, and swipe screen by screen in 30sec increments until I get to a scene I’m trying to see in a movie. It would be nice if the pause and scroll buttons were slightly higher away from the edges of screens so they don’t interfere with a slide home feature like on iPhone XS.
Horrible performance
by aarondeleys on 2019/01/09 23:15
Terrible app. If you’re using your phone as a mic with this app, prepare to be extremely annoyed and frustrated constantly. When in an Xbox Live party, I cannot go a full day without the app crashing at least 5 different times. Doesn’t matter if you’re not using any other apps and all other apps are closed, it will still crash. If you want to rejoin the party, you’ll need to fully quit the app and restarted it... several times. Sometimes i will have to close the app and restart it 4 times or more just for it to let me rejoin the party I was in before it crashed. The app doesn’t sync your party to the Xbox, so on the Xbox menu it says you’re not in a party. This is frustrating when you accidentally invite someone to a party instead of a game on the console, because it will make you leave the party on the app and place you in a party by yourself on the console. You’d think with the billions of dollars Microsoft has they’d be able to design an app that’s at least mediocre
Issue?
by Babyz_17 on 2017/09/13 07:36
I love the Xbox app and had no issues so far, but nowadays it seems as if when I log out and log into my other account everything gets messed up. Whether it's me getting messages from one account when I'm on the other, or it refuses to fully log into the account forcing me to close the app and re-log in. Another thing is that no matter if I'm on wifi or on my data, it can't show any of the sections: friends, clubs, etc. Even when I refresh it a bunch of times, close the app or login back in. It will just say "try again later", so I'm not sure if it's just on my end or what. But it's been getting really annoying seeing that. Other than than great app but it would be better if I knew why these issues keep happening.
Necessary, useful, and important app
by Bigpuppyman on 2018/08/15 04:22
Microsoft’s Xbox “Smartglass” app for the Xbox One is an incredible addition to any Xbox owner’s media management collection. The app can be used to control most functions on the Xbox, similar to the Apple remote app for the Apple TV. The app also displays information about specific content while it’s playing, as well as social information regarding your Friends’ online statuses. While this app is a useful and convenient tool for managing and running apps on your console, the user interface, while clean, runs slowly. The menu transition animations feel weighted, and seem to hold quick and learned app maneuvers back. I wish that the developers would either quicken the transition animations back-and-forth, or add a toggle to remove the feature all together. Besides that, the app is great and should be an addition to any Xbox One owner.
Very dissatisfied.
by Coolbear9754 on 2017/10/08 02:19
At first everything seemed fine with the app, until it kept denying my email when I tried to sign in. I was using the same email address I used with every other device. I triple-checked to see if it was the right one, and it was. Yet the app still would not take my email. In fact, I even made a new email to see if it would let me in. And even after that, it still wouldn’t work. I was looking forward to using this app. Perhaps a bug? Glitch? This really frustrates me. I made sure that I was using the correct email, and yet it would still not verify my email. Very dissatisfied with this app. Not to mention that one of the largest gaming companies worldwide created it. I was expecting a smooth flawless app that I could use to manage my Xbox account. And it wouldn’t even let me sign in. I know I’m not the only one having this issue. I bet others are as frustrated as me. Microsoft, please fix this error. Or at least respond to my review for instructions. Thank you for your time.
WiFi or maybe something else
by rgv108 on 2019/05/24 23:53
Ever since I updated this it has been sayin “something went wrong when loading the section” I’m not bragging but usually my WiFi is pretty good, but no matter what, it would always say that, I bet asphalt 9 legends needed more powerful WiFi just to play but an Xbox app??? Yea I don’t think it needs WiFi that powerful to work well, I turned off the device for like 5 min, turned it back on, same, turned of WiFi for 5 min and back on, same, reset WiFi (not the password) same, check wires, same, turned off iPad for longer amount of time, same, I think ye get what I’m sayin... I hope, I don’t realy know if it really is just my WiFi or something is going on, but if something is going on like some bug, please fix it, thank you and have a great day, or night...whenever you are reading this.
Privacy issue
by Nicole3452 on 2017/10/22 03:41
*update* Changed from 1 star to 4 stars because it appears you can no longer see that people are in a party when they are appearing offline. Yay! The only other bug I notice is that when someone adds me as a friend the notification stays up on my activity alerts tab for several days instead of going away when I click on it. Not a big deal tho. Thanks for the update! No complaints until a recent update which made it possible for people to see that I’m online and who I’m in party chat with even though I always appear offline. It completely defeats the purpose of appearing offline and brings up a privacy issue for me. I appear offline for a reason and absolutely hate that they made it possible for others to see when I’m online through the app and who I’m in a party with.
Messaging errors
by Tiny42205 on 2019/06/18 03:42
I would’ve gave the app a 5*, but it kept sending me notifications of my old messages with friends. It kept blowing up my phone and the messages won’t even show up. I have to keep refreshing all the time. I noticed the app be deleting all the old messages which is alright, I guess, but I didn’t want it to be deleted. Though, that’s really just not the problem. It doesn’t update on what people are playing on. Saying that they’re offline even though they are online. Those are just my 3 problems with the app. Hopefully it gets fixed because I’m really tired of the app spamming me old messages. I did delete the app and reinstalled it, but the same thing kept happing. Anyways, hopefully anyone reads this if they’re having the same problem. I use IOS if anyone is wondering. Thank you.
Useful. Also to the Developers...
by Dude******* on 2018/08/31 23:14
I’ve greatly enjoyed this app it’s useful and makes things simple. The new party feature was ingenious seriously love it. However, as an Xbox connoisseur and a diehard gamer their is something I feel would really make this app a must have for all Xbox gamers. Of course I’m talking about a download percentage tracker. Everyone who plays current gen games knows how big a digital game is, so most of us do something while it downloads. It’s would be great if we could be doing something or go somewhere and simply need to open the app and check the download percentage. That way you could start playing your new game the second it’s done downloading. Anyway that’s something to think about but for now the app is great keep up the good work Devs.
App is fine but could be fixed I bit
by bluepolarbear07 on 2019/08/26 05:29
So the Xbox app has a lot to offer but sometimes when you try to send messages the screen for message doesn’t work also it is annoying that you have to turn off you ringer or turn on do not disturb every time you play on the Xbox because say someone send a message or a party invite the both the Xbox and your phone make a noise and if you have someone like you work calling you when you are playing with you ringer off or do not disturb on then you do not get the call but I would say that if they added more power to the Xbox remote then this app would be basically perfect for anyone wanting another way of checking up on what is new with the Xbox and your friends on the Xbox also someone please fix the messages problem a soon as possible thanks
Good
by App.Reviewer1 on 2019/01/12 21:18
So what happened was I was playing with the app to join my friends party. I exited the app for a bit and when I opened the app, it showed that everything wasn’t able to connect. It said all my friends were offline and couldn’t show any party details. So I tried reloading it a couple times and even powered off my phone just to see if it would work but it didn’t. So I deleted the app and re-downloaded it. Then I had a whole new problem. Once I finished logging in it showed the loading spinner. I waited 5 minutes and closed the tab to restart it. I tried again and it still didn’t work. The same problem is happening to my friend. Maybe it could be from the rain. But if you have any suggestions or recommendations or any solutions or the source of the problem I would greatly appreciate it.
Awesome how can you do it?
by :)funny girl on 2019/06/07 04:07
First of all the Xbox Console is the best to use of it but then you get BETTER features to go with on your phone. You can change your avatar, color, gamer pic, name, bio, location and motto. You can even text your friends if your on a drive or a different area when your not using your Xbox, to watch broadcasts tell your friends start one! You may follow, donate and chat in a nice way example giving sparks or saying nice things and in the home area for the app you will see daily/recent pictures your friends took earlier as in new things! Why is the app so great? I'm not even sure myself, Xbox/Microsoft is just great! But the controller is a little not as good the PS4 control the RT/R2 LT/L2 RB/R1 LB/L1 PS4's button of those are smoother so to me the controls a bit better.
IN APP ISSUES
by Honsos on 2019/11/11 06:56
This app used to work smoothly, but now, as of late, the app itself, as well as every page within it takes an unreasonably long time to load. I’m so frustrated that I’ve even recorded the load duration, and it’s average comes out around 2 minutes. That may not seem like much, but when you sit there and watch that little circle go round and round for 160 seconds when it should only take a few, it starts to wear on your patience. On top of all that waiting, any time a page actually manages to load up, it’s no good. When I look for clubs through certain games the app kicks me out. If I search for a profile or attempt to glance at my activity, it kicks me out. I have the iPhone 7 with 50GB of storage, of which I’m only using 29 gigs. Whenever I go into the Xbox app I make sure to clear any cache I have on my device, and clear any other cookies and or tabs I might have open, so this app should NOT be timing out, nor should it take a century and a half to load. I chose to rate this Xbox app one star in the hopes of gaining the developers attention. I grew up on PlayStation, but turned to Xbox in my teens and have been a loyal customer ever since, but too often are Xbox consumers’ questions, comments, and concerns ignored by the company. Please, take some time to look into the app. Investigate and do your best to resolve these issues. Thank you for reading my review, I genuinely appreciate your consideration.
Bugs: the app
by Matt20264 on 2018/09/28 22:07
Amazingly, the app has bugs that have persisted through several updates. The friends list won’t load, going to profile settings tells you access is restricted and good luck getting anything to load. If this app were advertised as a giant bug, it’d get a full five stars, outstanding realism of bugs. Despite all that, it has some good features especially party chat and messaging. You can even buy canes and push the download to your Xbox when it decides to load. While that’s good, what good is it really when it doesn’t work? Sometimes I can only get it to work but signing out and signing back in. Yeah I can’t find the sign out sometimes, I think it’s in profile settings. Jokes on me I guess since I can’t access profile setting because I don’t have permissions to my account. Fix all that, I’ll change my review back to five stars guaranteed.
Craps Out And Glitches Frequently
by Heavy Metalist on 2018/03/19 00:04
The refresh button glitches all the time when I try to see which of my friends are online. I press it a dozen times before I realize it's there simply for decoration. Erasing an unwanted conversation (in message inbox) has recently become impossible. After tapping 'erase' or 'delete', it gives you the illusion that it's reloading your list of conversations and is going to get rid of the one(s) you chose to eliminate, but no, you'll still see it there. The app glitches on a basic request. I'm giving it a 2-star rating because it's easy to file complaints on failures who chose to send angry messages after they lose (I personally receive many from raging clowns who can't handle losing legitimately). Naturally, this being a Microsoft product, it isn't without it's issues. For some reason, you can't file against recent XBOX 360 users; like it only focuses on Xbox One recents. I would ask, but MS will just say "file complaints thru the 360 menu for 360 users". Overall, it's a garbage app, but comes in handy for a quick 'filing on sore losers and keeps you up-to-date on the activity-feed of your friends and your own, should you chose to follow likes, comments and shares. *I also wanna note that the issues I've experienced occurred AFTER the latest "update". Classic MS, eh? The more they try to fix what isn't broken, the worse they make it and then wonder why their products fail.
The best system out there
by Tiffany's Sexy Lover on 2019/12/12 02:51
Xbox has the best games. Very smooth Online game play. You can’t compare the other console to Xbox, why you ask, The social community is the best, link up with online friends to play multiple player or play duels on campaign mode. Even if you rather play solo, the graphics are amazing, and there are so many different game to choose from, even the throwbacks from XBOX 360. I really like meeting new friends with common interest in gaming. You won’t find another game console that has such easy way to manage your accounts, or settings, personalize your Xbox main screens to fit what you like, and how you want to play. XBOX success is that they listen to there customers, and not just give customers what they thing they want.
For the most part great, missing some key features
by Yoshio95 on 2018/04/07 12:30
For the most part this app is a great addition to extend the overall ability to use your Xbox for instance if you don’t want to kill your battery on the controller from watching movies and videos or if you are in a chat group this app works great, or if you are gaming and need to chat with your team. The cons of this is when you are using this as a remote you are very very very limited to what you can do. It more often than not will disconnect you and you won’t be able to reconnect from time to time. The reason behind giving this only 4 stars is because of the limited mobility of the control system. As it functions at the basics only. If you can add the ability for us to enter our passcodes via the app, that would be amazing and very helpful.
Pretty good but needs work.
by PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU BUY on 2018/06/25 13:14
Please stop making my controller disconnect when I am using the app. Also please allow either a separate chat party on the app, separate from the xbox party, enabling 2 parties at the same time or change the settings so that when you invite someone to a party on the app they join the party on the xbox instead of the party in the app or allow both options. Also please create the option to choose to join a party from the app which places you in the party on the xbox instead of the party in the app, as well as the choice to join the party in the app on your phone. Also please allow the option to switch back and forth. Also please create a history on the xbox and in the app so you can go back to where you were before, both with parties and games/apps/menus.
Mostly great
by James Sumners on 2017/11/25 15:01
I really like being able to see who is doing what without having to turn my console on; this lets me know if I even want to do so. And I like being able to buy games and push them to my console. Being able to send messages is also very handy. The down side that has me writing this review, however, has to do with notifications. You can get notifications for some useful things, like getting a new message or a change to an LFG you created/subscribed to. But while you can get a notification that a friend has started streaming (I couldn't care any less), you _can't_ get a notification that a friend has posted an LFG. Seems to me that if a friend is looking for people to play with, you'd like to know about that more than if they just want to show you what they're playing.
YoGurT
by SamuelDehCow fortnite name on 2019/08/15 20:17
Hi, I would like a small update to the Xbox app, I would want it to be so that when you err off the app and get onto another game, or turn off your phone, please make the app give you a small notification for if you would want to leave a party, (a party that you are in on the Xbox app), or make it so the app would just keep on going with the party or chat that you are in, because I want to play games with my friend, but I don’t want to leave the party, because every time I play a different game the Xbox app always leaves the party, or chat, so please make t so that the Xbox app does not leave the party, or chat, so I can play a different game on my phone while talking with multiple people, on the Xbox app, ok, byeeeee.
Good unless your trying to talk to people
by Sablinval on 2019/06/25 00:39
I have the misfortune of not having to use this app in order to talk to people on xbox. It’s pretty good in most other aspects, but if you’re trying to talk to people and join a party through the app it can become a pain. Sometimes when you attempt to join parties it will just crash the app, if you receive an invite while using the app it will also sometimes crash the app. This can be very annoying as even restarting my phone won’t help the issue sometimes and I have to wait until it resolves itself. It would be reckless to say that this is major hindrance to my every day use, but when it does happen, I normally have to spend 20 mins or more figuring out how to fix it or ways around it. This is my only major quarrel with this app however, and it hasn’t given me any other issues.
Fix your console
by TacoBoy64766599 on 2019/10/24 01:49
Your console has some problems. I can’t count how many times that I’ve had problems, game issues, and just overall bad experiences with the system. I’m a busy guy and nothing is more frustrating then coming home after a long day at work, or just getting back from the gym, then having the console completely shut down. Sometimes a game will crash right before I get the chance to save. I understand that some games may just be ports from pc but, I don’t think that’s an excuse for it to happen with almost every game I play. Being someone who has played many games, I think your games should be thoroughly tested before ever even entering the Xbox store. Countless times have I been disappointed by games that I would love to play, Only after spending my money on that game. I pay for Xbox live, the game pass, and occasionally I will buy a game. I don’t think it’s fair for me, or anyone else, to not get their money’s worth. I have an Xbox one S. Thank you.
Amazing but...
by FLOPERGUY on 2019/02/03 20:42
This app is one of the best app I’ve ever used. Easy access to everything on the go. Very responsive, and very easy to follow menu like the friends button to see what your friends are doing. Message them. See what’s happening in the clubs you’re in. But there is an issue going on that almost every feature I use in the app says that I need a adult account which has never happened before when I tried to change the gamer pic or something like that. So I go to my Xbox to change the pic which is slightly hard but I was fine with it until it also said I needed an adult account. I don’t know what’s happening as it spread across from my phone to my Xbox. I was hoping for it to disappear for over 5 months, but I still can’t change my picture. Please, if you’re able to fix this then please do. Otherwise it’s a amazing app.
Very Broken even after updates
by ododdn on 2019/01/06 22:59
It can be an amazing app when it works. Which it rarely does. So many issues with the party and “privacy settings” and etc. I’ll name them all so hopefully they will be fixed (or not). One issue, when I get a call the app usually disconnects after which is understandable, what isn’t is when I try to join back only for it to kick me out and say that there was “something wrong”. And also ANOTHER PROBLEM I JUST HAD is when I got a phone call and came back, I couldn’t even join back to the Xbox party and ALSO I CANNOT USE ANY SOCIAL FEATURES BECAUSE OF PRIVACY SETTINGS NEEDING TO BE CHANGED! Another thing which is the worst is when I try to join a party, the app crashes and when I get an invite or ANY NOTIFICATION from the Xbox app while using it, the app closes out. And that’s what I experienced always. And hopefully HOPEFULLY it will get fixed.
Crashes all the time.
by gunny13 on 2019/09/03 06:31
I really like this app when it works. I use it primarily as a remote for my Xbox One so that I don’t run down the batteries. If I leave the app open and lock my phone when I unlock it the app has crashed, no big deal I just close it and open it again and it connects right back up. However today I opened the app cold and nothing. I go to use the remote feature, open the remote and tap the A button section and nothing. Doesn’t respond to anything. I closed the app and opened it multiple times still the same thing. I went ahead and uninstalled the app and reinstalled it and still nothing. It seems like a pretty basic feature to get this to work on an iPhone 8. The only thing I can think of is that I updated my OS to 12.4.1 yesterday and that seems to be when the trouble started.
Problems connecting to Xbox
by .Matty679 on 2019/04/12 06:07
I’ve had this app for a long time and I really enjoy it. It’s much faster to send messages on here if you’re in the middle of an online game that can’t pause and a friend messages you. It’s more convenient. However, lately I haven’t been able to use the in-app remote on my app, which makes it so much easier when I get home from a long day at work and don’t feel like turning my Xbox remote on, choosing a show to watch on Netflix, and turning the remote off. It’s a quick and easy way to choose a show remote-free. I’ve tried putting in the IP address, made sure it was on the same network, and I went to the settings and the app connectibility and everything should be working but it’s not. I’d really appreciate it if you address the problem and fix it. I will then leave a 5 star rating once my app works as a remote again. Thank you.
Bugs... but overall okay
by Kyra Pemberton on 2018/01/02 06:30
I appreciate the connivence of being able to access the social features and the basic remote but my main complaint is the lack of the keyboard actually working. I’ve tried re-installing the app and restarting the console but even though it worked briefly when I first connected to the Xbox the keyboard doesn’t pop up anymore. There should be an option to input text from your phone manually, like a button to you can press in the remote section. I mean honestly typing on the keyboard is the only truly inconvenient thing to do on the Xbox. Looking through highlights and achievements and the likes are all easily done, but typing is something that can’t be improved too much UI wise on the console itself, which is why this used to be useful. Please fix this.
Great app
by Catskratch22 on 2018/01/11 12:16
Works great and has a lot of content you can browse while your watching tv or playing a game. Also doubles your phone as a remote wich can be very useful when watching a movie or tv. 5 stars..... fast foward 2 years later this app continues to stay relevant and very useful/fun. I constantly find myself viewing my in game clips or those of friends while watching tv and also browsing the store for new games and content I may be interested in. I also like that I receive messages from friends even tho my system is off and I'm not home allowing me to respond and coordinate a co op session for later on. I'm still really happy with this app after over 2 years of use my review remains at 5 stars!
Needs some fixing
by Brerme on 2018/10/02 00:59
So I have some friends that have their own Xbox so we talk and play together but when I am away I use the app to chat and message to them but this app crashes a lot when I am in a party with my friends but also sometimes when I want to text my friends the app says access to feature blocked and it is very annoying, even now it crashes so much when I am messaging them and then leaving the app and opening it again so it delays me like 20 seconds although I would say that the uses that this app provides is enough to say this app is worth it with its features to talk to others, message, look at the activity feed, and troll my sister with the Xbox remote build in overall good app feature wise but crashes a ton
