So many improvements!!

Edit: This is a still a great app with a lot of great features! Each update does a little more to improve the experience. I will get on my soap box again though and mention my issue with the clip gallery and video player. In an age where having a high quality playback is a must, the app is still falling behind in this department. I shouldn’t have wait for it to respond to a landscape orientation and the playback shouldn’t force my window to close. interactivity should be seamless. I’d also like to be able to zoom in while watching clips or looking at screenshots. Hoping for an update that will address this soon! Still an Xbox dude for sure!

Original post: As someone who has stuck with this app since it’s launch, I can say that it’s come a long way! Way more accessibility throughout the app than in previous versions and connectivity to my Xbox without having to be on the same wifi is my favorite low key feature. While for sure it’s earned all five stars the app still isn’t perfect. Scrolling through saved clips is still a challenge. It would be nice just seem less Lu transition from one clip to another without so much bouncing back and forth. The responsiveness could be a lot better. Not a big fan of the video player the app uses either. Besides that, Microsoft keeps giving me reasons to stick with my console! If you’re an Xbox user, you definitely need this app.

Good way to play Xbox on the go, one feature missing, however.

While I (sometimes) use this app to play my Xbox, most of the time I use it to use my Bluetooth headphones while playing the console in the same room. However, I discovered (to my disappointment) that there is a 2.5 second delay in the audio. Which was really saddening, as I wanted to play competitive games (like halo infinite, call of duty, etc) with the headphones. I kindly request a version of the "remote play" without the screen, so I can play my Xbox with the controllers bluetooth connected to the Xbox, and my wireless headphones connected to the app so I can have the audio on my headphones, the reason I want a version without the screen is because I'm using a old phone (iPhone XR,) to use the remote play so I can have audio for my headphones, however, the screen is the reason on why my headphones have that delay (I play at 120hz on my Xbox, so of course it slows it down.)
Without the screen and just the audio, I can play with my wireless headphones on the maximum audio graphics (I have to turn on the "high connectivity" mode to play, unless I want a 2 second cutout each minute.)
Sorry if this is a lot to ask, but please. if you have the time, implement it.
Thanks for reading.

New Update...

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.
