    Bring back "Snap an App" from 2016


    It was a great feature to some. But they removed it because it wasn't popular enough. I doubt it would be brought back at this point. Anything is possible I suppose.

    Bring back "Snap an App" from 2016

    When I bought the xbox one this was the ONE feature I was extremely looking forward to,when it arrived I was actually extremely annoyed it wasn't on it anymore and even considered returning it because it was a major selling point.

    However I kept the system but I find I don't use it as much at the moment because there are things lacking that just should be there. I think they should definitely bring this back, There is no excuse, if they want to allocate more space to a certain game
    then they can block snap for that game, letting people know that snap does not work with this game.

    The other thing mentioned about PIP, now this, this could work with oneguide, use that as a "snapped" video source, it would take minimal system resource as everything is rendered off system, the only thing that would be running is the bare app itself. This
    could be an additional feature to snap to be brought in as an apology for getting rid of a beloved feature. Although I would settle for one or the other I would prefer both to be an option.

    Please microsoft, as you can see there is a huge demand for this feature to come back, and you would only need to impliment your past code into the next system update to bring it back, you didn't remove all traces of the code for snap anyway.

    Just do it for the fans, show that you care about your players

    This has been asked for multiple times, try searching the Xbox Feedback website for it there.

    A lot of people are missing this feature. Not sure why it was dropped because it was very popular. Let's hope they here the calls but suggest it directly to the team here Xbox
    Feedback
    . If enough ask you never know!
    Although it seems like it was "very popular", Microsoft/Xbox have the raw data to see how many people were using it and how often. They then took the decision that it wasn't very many (a small % of the userbase) to decided to remove the resource requirement
    so game developers could use that processing power and the Xbox team didn't need to manage the code required to run it.

    Sad, but it kind of makes sense.

    This is exactly what I was going to say. It might have a vocal popularity, but actual usage numbers might not reflect that. The "gaming" power lost by dedicating resources to a second app and network traffic, as well as the lost real estate on screen is
    something users didn't want to give up. As well as adding the more complicated "gestures" to switch and control the second app would not be intuitive for most users to use, either.

    I just have a second computer I use for my second screen experience, and works just as well, though I know not everyone has that option of a portable easy second computer/tablet.
