Little disappointments with the One

I now have had my Xbox One since it's release. Over all I am enjoying it, the games look great, and it's working well. I like the voice commands to control game, apps and my television viewing.

That being said there are a few things from the 360 that I miss, and I can not understand why they didn't carry over to the One.

Voice Mail: Several times while playing BF4, I have tried to send a quick message to someone who isn't using game chat(in a party). To try and send a message when you can, while dead, to get to where you can send a message....type it out..then navigate back usually ends up with me getting disconnected. It's even a hassle to just send a message to offline friends. Why is there no voice mail for the one?

Recently met players: Was always nice to meet someone you liked while playing a game, then send them friend request. Be it immeditly or a few hours later. now it's difficult to do so, if at all.

Joining friends: Used to be able to just pick a friend off your list , then have an option to join them. Can't do that any longer. Can only be done if the game supports it.

these will come in time..... be patient...

i always enjoy those answers, fantastic, lol!

For the messages why not use smartglass?

maybe because not everybody has smartglass?

You can get it... it's free...

Most people nowadays have either a smart phone OR a tablet.  I know there are people who don't, but it was a suggestion.  Why not let the OP answer for himself.  Seems like you're just looking for an argument.

I love those answer as well.... LOL

and honestly....  the machine has been out a little over 8 weeks... how fast do updates and fixes come out?? especially the first real update.. I mean really.... machine will live to be 10 years old.... it has been 2 months

MS has stated that they are bringing "recently played" list back, not sure why it wasn't there in the first place, but whatever.  

.

I'm also curious why they couldn't update the 360 to use the same audio codec as the One.  Using a higher quality audio format normally doesn't require higher system specs or additional hardware.  Hopefully they will patch in the 360 at some point.

Whenever I try and send a message from my iphone on smartglass... it makes a screen come up on my xbox one where I have to sign in.... so I've stopped doing it as I found this to be very annoying
