    Can an Xbox app running in the background access network?


    Hi, just starting to learn about Xbox Dev Mode etc, very interesting.

    I have developed a program in Visual Studio, C#, that runs on Win 10 PC (and RPi). It listens to UDP output from an Xbox One game, and sends data (laptimes) to an external database with a simple API in php on the server.

    In theory, could it be possible to have a small application to run on the Xbox One, in the background, listening and reacting to UDP sent from a game running on the same Xbox? If so, I would be in heaven! Can an Xbox app running in the background access network? :)

    :)

    Xbox Party chat not working

    Can you check in Settings > Privacy > Background Apps and check that the Xbox App is set to On so that it can run in the background?

    Amazon Music App and Pandora App Running but NO MUSIC. All other apps and sounds work normally

    Hi there,

    The Pandora app and Amazon music apps function as background apps or snapped apps as they are called on Xbox One and since the app is running in the background, the audio controls are accessed using a submenu since the app is not open on full screen. Accessing
    the audio controls can be confusing, but I believe it works similar on PC when you use these apps in a snapped format, playing in the background while you use games or other apps so its just the functionality of music apps that play in the background. When
    a background music app is playing, you can also access the Volume controls under the Display and Sound Settings, then look for Sound Mixer.

    We appreciate the feedback on how to access the audio controls for these apps that I'm sure will help many others, so I will go ahead and mark your post as answered and lock the thread. I'll provide some support articles on this topic for further information:


    Feel free to come back to the forums anytime you have any questions or concerns and we would be more than happy to assist you!

    Thank you and have a great day!

    Post suspension party/game chat ban.

    have you tried using skype? Xbox's connection in general is sketchy for me and my friends, we cant even access party chat. so we use skype and have it run in the background (its the only app that properly runs in the background too).

    Finally found a xbox one.. Couple ??'s

    No. Does it do it with every game you try to install? Also, make sure that you do not have any apps running in the background on the dashboard ie completely exit out of tv by pressing the menu button and selecting quit. Apps running in the background
    can affect your installs. If closing out background apps that are open does not fix it, I would contact MS.
