The Xbox Insider Team is always focused on improving your experience. We do this in a bunch of different ways across all of Xbox. In this article, I will explain how your suggestions are shared internally and give you some tips on providing suggestions that are effective and timely.
Right now, the Xbox Feedback site at http://feedback.xbox.com is set up for you to share you suggestion and have others vote on it (How do you post a good idea? Check here). Let’s say you’ve posted your idea; what happens to your suggestion once it achieves a high vote count?
Suggestions are grouped by feature type, a little differently than you see here. Each group of suggestions is then ranked by vote count, and compiled into a document for review. The vote rankings are helpful for our feature teams to prioritize these suggestions; your votes give your requests weight. But what is really valuable for us are your comments. Understanding why a feature is suggested, or how we should implement it is core to making sure you get the features you want, the way you want them.
We share your feedback internally all year round, but in the coming months, we’ll be asking for suggestions and feature request for specific features so that you will get the most out of your power as part of the Xbox community! We always welcome suggestions based on new features, but if you focus on features already available to the public (i.e., not in preview), then you’re more likely to provide suggestions at a time when the feature team is ready to see that feedback. We also appreciate suggestions that involve your core goal. For example, when the Game DVR was only able to record 5 minutes on the console, it’s more helpful to ask for more time to record and provide an explanation of why, rather than asking for a specific number, like recording for 10 minutes or 60 minutes. When you provide your insight behind your request, it helps our feature teams understand why you want a feature, and work towards that goal.
When you make a suggestion on Xbox Feedback, what we really want to see is your vision for the future and direction of Xbox. But what do you do if you want to help out with the console and games you want?
