  • New Update...


    By Puppylover20066
    This app USED to be good. Key words being "used to." Before the latest update, the xbox app was really good and I had very few issues with it. Ever since the new update, I have absolutely HATED using this app. Obviously this is my opinion right now, but I hate almost every single thing that has changed (and a bunch of my friends agree.) First off, the app takes longer to load in than it used to. Second off, the whole messaging / chatting with others is awful. Sending messages can be delayed a lot and sometimes not even send. You can't send pictures anymore. And also, if you have notifications on, it'll glitch over and over and over again whenever someone messages you (meaning even if you are on a chat with someone currently texting each other, whenever they text you, a notification will buzz at the top of ur screen.) This glitch is only fixed if u reload the app, and even then, after a few minutes of texting, the notification buzzing will still show up again. Another thing I hate is the online / offline thing. I don't like how when you are on a chat with someone, it says they are offline, even if they are actually online. It only says they are online on the home screen, which is very annoying. Honestly, the only thing I do like about this update is our captures all in one area. Obviously this probably won't happen, but I feel like this app would be way better if the update was just taken off, and the app was reverted back to its old state.
  • 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.
  • Reporting Two Bugs


    By Ashlannde
    I’ve been trying to use this app for the three months but it’s a serious problem. The app has a bug where it won’t launch and you’ll be stuck with an infinite loading circle on your screen. After restarting the app well over fifty times it has refused to work so I tried reinstalling it and that didn’t work either. My second problem is that the party chat continuously cuts in and out making it incredibly difficult to communicate with people because I have ask them repeatedly what they said. I have a brand new IPhone XR so it’s not my iPhone. My internet is fine and I’ve even tried it with my mobile data and it still won’t work. I even had my friend try it too and he says it cuts in and out. Even when I unplug my head phones from my phone it still won’t make a sound until a few minutes later. Please fix this bug, it was working perfectly until a few weeks ago. You try to add new updates and try to make do more things but it shouldn’t need too. Your console is perfectly fine and your app was fine until you screwed it up. I love your console but there’s no need to try and battle with PS4 anymore. At this point its based on personal preference of the consumer and not whether the console runs faster or not. If they want a faster console then they can get the S or the X or the New one when it comes out. Stop trying to make change it. This app doesn’t deserve a 4.7 rating because it has so many huge bugs
  • I have one thing to say


    By Always bugging you !
    There’s a ton of problems with the app in the new update but theres lots of other people writing reviews so I won’t take twenty minutes of my day to go on a rant about the app because honestly it’s not worth it. However there is one thing that I absolutely hate about the update and have no idea why they got rid of it. You Literally Cannot Customize Your Game Picture Anymore. Nor can you send pictures to people in messages. Normally I wouldn’t care about this since I don’t want to change my gamer picture, however one of my friends in order to spite me used this update to change my gamer picture and now I can’t change it back, I have to use a default picture. Which in fact is a real bummer. I like to have the freedom to customize my profile in any kind of social media. And no matter what you say Xbox is undoubtedly a social media, you can text, send game clips,(used to be able to send pictures), you can talk, and some other things but people don’t usually use these because Xbox is a console and is generally used for gaming. I can mind the glitches with the new update but I cannot overlook the fact that they have completely done away with a key feature in the profile customization. All in all I believe they should scrap this new update and revert it to the previous one.
  • REPORTING A BUG!!!!


    By Bgary19
    There is a bug with the Xbox Phone App after the most recent update that was rolled out. While talking in party chat on the Xbox Phone App the sound will randomly cut out on one or more people in the party with you. You can still see that those people are talking, you just can’t hear them, and I have also confirmed that those people can hear you even though you can not hear them. It is not an internet issue as it happens to me whether I am on the wifi or (disconnecting from wifi and) using my phone data. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, still did not fix my problem. Own a brand new iphone 11 I got for christmas and using the headphones that came with, so it isn’t that my phone/headphones are super old or anything. This was not a problem until the most recent update for the app a few weeks ago. This is as inconvenient as it gets for someone who relies on the xbox phone app to talk with friends in party chat while we play, and is so frustrating that i have almost had to stop playing xbox entirelt. To add to my frustrations i am running out of time to play EA access and Gamepass free trials with my friends because of this, and i know xbox is going to give me zero compensation for this. Strongly considering selling my xbox because of this situation if it doesnt get fixed SOON.
  • Xbox One App is..... okay?!


    By 320jwkefjkaw;we
    I started using the Xbox App because I wanted to try out the Remote Feature on it and it was pretty good and all being able to move on the screen and things like that, but then it became useless to me I obviously use a controller now and using the remote would just be for fun or no reason at all, but here is something they should add, being able to see your controller battery and maybe headset battery if you have a wireless one like myself. It would be that feature that would be useful for people who might not have a charger or then just wanting to know what it’s at because they could buy batteries or they could buy things that would be based off of that feature. The app sometimes is buggy and won’t let me get in but usually it’s pretty good, I don’t use the Xbox App too much because theirs usually nothing interesting I’d need to see on it, but that’s just my opinion so whatever you guys use it for would be good and all but I don’t see myself using that much, but for the people who do use it i will give this a 4 star but if that feature got added I will gladly change my rating
  • Why I think we should change our name a 3rd time


    By rexy rexy bounce up
    Ok so I like Xbox and its a nice and very good app to text on and learn about other people feed. I also like how y’all fix bug problems and other thing like that. But I don’t like how we can’t change our name I have 3 reasons why. 1: is that java can changes there name only after 30 days but ya we can’t. 2: is that I believe that every problem should be solved by a 3rd time like when you are little for example 10 you can change it and when your like 16 you can change it and last but least 20 you can also change it as well. I believe that all humans across the world should get a third chance of doing so 3: is that wnf you made a mistake and like you didn’t check it is all your fault that you did it but wnf it lags out and it just changed to you didn’t want to you will be disappointed. This is my opinion why I think we should change my name a 3rd time thank you for reading
  • Been done but a giant bug for Xbox app users


    By B0N6S
    So,Me and my friends use the Xbox app all to the in order to change our profile picture lately but every time I go to change it and upload the picture I get an error saying we cannot upload “anything right now” please try again later. And that has been going on for a week and you haven’t heard about the problem either the error is just at my side and not anyone else who has the Xbox app. But I do advise I can say that can you please try to figure out what’s wrong and why we can’t change our profile pictures to the custom ones I recently just stayed up till 3:00 making a profile picture just to get The holy grale of my first error on the app. And I have a very stable internet connection and should have no problem doing anything WiFi related. If Xbox support or any Microsoft management read this report please try to get this done I know your dealing with a Xbox error we’re it shows everyone offline sometimes but once you fix that problem can you please consider on fixing this. Thank you for your time.
  • So many bugs


    By Midgetsss
    To start off I have tried to figure out how to contact Xbox about this by using the app support button next to download, it does not bring you somewhere to report an actual bug and is very difficult to navigate. 1. The biggest issue that is occurring right now is that party’s and Voice chats WILL NOT WORK they won’t even let you open them and just say “Something went wrong” this is highly annoying and I’ve signed in and out and uninstalled and reinstalled, Xbox app is what I use as an alternative to using a mic since the mic on your headsets decide to stop working in the early months of purchasing. The app is also connected to my console and disconnecting and reconnecting did not work 2. Second biggest bug which everyone has been having issues with for months yet you have not fixed it is where in the party people can still hear you but you are unable to hear them. Most of the time if it’s a party of let’s say four. You can hear one person at a time and every couple of minutes it allows audio of the next person to come through but shuts the other person off. The other half of the time you can’t hear a single person. Please fix this as you’ve been made aware of this for months and is ridiculous.
  • Great update but can’t change gamerpic


    By 385tim
    Hi! I just love this app, it’s amazing! Although the new update has some changes that are great and some that are not, I’m just gonna say one, I can’t change my gamerpic, I can’t tell if it’s a weird glitch from the new update or something, but I can’t change my gamerpic, it doesn’t show how on videos, and I tried to change my gamerpic using the xbox but no luck, nothing says anything about the profile, I went to settings, and nothing said anything about the profile settings, I can’t tell if I’m stupid and I just cant see the profile settings, or there’s just something wrong with the app, so please fix that or just tell me where the xbox profile picture change is because I wanna change it. Anyways that’s all I have to say, this is a great app and it’s fun to use to chat and go on voice calls!
