  1. How do I turn off a friend's online notification when they're live streaming from their xbox


    I have a handful of friend's that stream from their xbox via the live stream option on their console. People on their friend list that are also online get bombarded with (1st notification) That they're Live Streaming then (2nd/repeat notification) that they're online while they're streaming. My question is how do you prevent that 2nd/repeat notification that they're online from popping up? Thank you everyone for your time and consideration.

    :)

    How do I turn off a friend's online notification when they're live streaming from their xbox

    Hi, Lazydaydreamer! Thank you for reaching out.
    I'm AJ, an Independent Advisor for the Xbox Community.

    Considering you are receiving notifications for both when your friends come online and when they start streaming, it's likely they are set as favorites in your friends list.

    For your reference, this is the description for favorite friends on Xbox:

    "Favorite friends are listed first in your friends lists. You will see when they are online or live streaming."

    Unfortunately, there is no way to prevent only the 2nd notification from popping up, as the reason why you get it is the same for the 1st notification.

    ------------------

    There are two ways to stop receiving these notifications:

    1) Edit friendship:

    - Go to your friend's profile, select "Change Friendship" and select "Friend" from the list of available options. This will prevent you from receiving both the 1st and 2nd

    2) Change your notification settings:

    - Go to Settings > Preferences > Notifications > Xbox Notifications > Friends, and uncheck the box for "Friend notifications on"
    * Please note that this will disable notifications for all friends, not just your favorites.

    -----

    Alternatively, some things that could work for you are:

    - Disabling notifications banners only at Settings > Preferences > Notifications
    - Changing the default notification position at Settings > Preferences > Notifications
    - Or mute the notification alert sound by going to Settings > General > Volume and audio output > Additional options.

    ------------------

    Please let me know if you have any further questions, I'd be happy to help.
    Best regards.

    Just Started Broadcasting message keeps going out to online friends while I stream.

    This problem might be related to the Xbox Live services issues that occurred earlier today. Do you monitor your stream via PC, laptop, or tablet to see if you can verify whether the stream is being affected by a network or XBL issue?

    If your friends don't want to continually get started broadcasting notifications then they can go into Settings - Preferences - Notifications - Xbox notifications and turn Friends & broadcasts off. This is my personal default setting preference. I just rely
    on the Messages or Party & game notifications if I want to play with someone who sends me an invite otherwise it can become very distracting if you have a large friends list with players from around the world who can come online or start streaming at all hours
    of the day.

    Friend Notifications

    They should have this. We get a notification when we receive a txt message from a friend regardless if on a 360 or 1, so the same should apply for friend notifications. Especially friends who we add to our favourites list. 360 and 1 do run on "Xbox Live"
    so we should have the ability to receive such notifications without having to search up the friend to see their online status whether they're online on not.

    Small Add-on For Next Xbox Live Update Idea.

    At this point, I already want beacons removed or at least the option to turn off beacon notifications. Xbox Live already tells you when a friend starts up the game you are playing, on top of that I get a beacon notification twice when they go online and
    starts the game. So annoying.
