  1. Xbox App spying on Steam/GoG/Blizzard activity on Windows 10


    Hello,

    I opened my Xbox app on Windows 10 today and I can see under "recent" games that I was playing on other game platforms. My privacy settings are set, yet there is no "please do not spy on activity outside of the Xbox app" option. I don't want to see steam
    games in my xbox app. I don't want to see "you played a non-xbox game for 2hrs 5 days ago." Is there a way to stop this unacceptable invasion of privacy while remaining a loyal xbox customer? I like playing Cuphead now an again but I will delete this intrusive
    app if the spying cannot be stopped.

    If "sign out" is the only option...will the app repopulate what I played while signed out once I sign back in?

    :)

    Hello!

    Thanks for reaching out to us here on the forums with this situation. The app is designed to keep track of gaming on your Windows 10 PC. If this suggestion is something you'd like to see implemented I would recommend you voice it at
    Xbox Ideas. Find an available Idea Drive that says "Accepting Ideas" and post your idea there for review. Hope this helps.

    Xbox 360 on PC

    Hi, There is no way to play Xbox 360 games on a Windows 10 PC. The only way would be to play a Windows version of the game, which you can find on 3rd party store such as Steam and GOG. But playing Xbox 360 games on a PC is just not possible.

    Windows Live PC

    If you have Windows 10 there actually is no need for the Windows Live app anymore. That app is to play games on Xbox Live if you had any of the earlier versions, like Windows 8.1 or Windows 8.
    This is 100% wrong.

    The Games for Windows Live (GFWL) App is still required if you want to play games that require it. Shadowrun, the Batman games (if you're not playing the Steam port), etc.

    Since you mentioned a Live ID, I suspect that it is GFWL that's the issue, but I could be wrong.

    Check out my post here if it is GFWL:
