Downloading Remotely

I have one suggestion and I really did not know where to put it.

On the next Xbox or the next update would it be possible to add a remote download setting?

We all know the excitement of coming home to play the newest map pack for Call Duty or the latest DLC for Skyrim. However the hassle of waiting for it to download really blatantly sucks.

In the future would it be possible to remotely access your Xbox and begin downloading while you are not home? It could work through Xbox.com. A user would get on Xbox.com and log into their account. The user would then find the content they wished to download and select a remote download setting. This way when the user arrives home the content is already downloaded.

Just some food for thought.

Thanks.

I agree, it would make downloading games a lot easier. Have you considered using the Xbox SmartGlass app?? There are a lot of features the app can do such as controlling your Xbox from a Smartphone, Tablet, Computer or Laptop on the go. I do hope they incorporate that into the next update.

Hi panda, I believe this is already a feature, if you download something via xbox.com it will remotely download to your console, assuming of cause the xbox is on.

Hi there,

-

like mentioned by matt1912 you can already add items to your download cue via xbox.com and if your console is turned on it will start downloading (may take short time, to receive the updated status).

-

This isnt possible when the console is turned off, and personally I wouldn't want the console turning on when adding something to the queue via the internet, because I would think it as unsafe (hacking wise), to turn a console on via the internet

-

And a tip for any wishes/feedback, the best place to post them is the Wishlist/feedback forum which can be found here: forums.xbox.com/.../default.aspx
