    Why is the xbox app so slow?


    I usually get 50 Megabits per second on everything else. But the Xbox app at max gets 700 Kibibytes. That is 5 Megabits per second. At this rate, my 113 GiB game will get done in a week. How is a multi-trillion dollar company making an app so slow, can this be fixed?

    :)

    Why are the Apps so slow?

    Lich, this is not true, i had this issue (especially with ghosts running) from the beginning!

    when i start up ghosts pretty nothing really works! if i am in a lobby and whant to see someones profile i can't open it! it takes too much time!

    maybe it is also ghosts which is just poorly programmed, or it is the xbox that is not really next gen ...!

    i for myself am pretty unhappy with my choice to keep on supporting MS with the one! hoped to get a real gaming machine but it is not!

    Hello TheBigSnot,

    If loading times have decreased it could be the cache build up on the xbox. Have you tried holding down the power button for 7 seconds and rebooting the system? This usually works because there are many things happening in the background of the console.

    The xbox can multitask many apps and a game at any given time. After using some apps or a game, go to the Home screen and use the Menu button to quit some apps that you are currently not using.

    Also, if I may ask, are you on the Preview Program? If you are experiencing screen locking and really bad slowness, this is expected and should be reported on the Preview Forums.

    Let us know how it goe's, thank you!

    Hey TheBigSnot,

    Its good to hear back from you. Generally though this never really never happens. It appears this last month of July had it pretty hard with the servers. A couple sources say its either the intense heat on the server farms, or one source says it was Destiny
    Beta might have caused all this discrepancies, but I wouldn't bet my money on it.

    You can always check the Xbox Status page to see if this has to relate any of the issues related to this..... And I can assure you, Xbox will get much better in the future. Engineers and Servers work around the clock to get things working as fast as possible.
    The August update is looking real good, plus all the new features, and loads of bug fixes. Hang in there, Xbox One has only truly begun expanding.

    Try the methods I suggested, if it still occurs, contact support about the issue, feedback means a lot!

    Thanks!

    Why are the Apps so slow?

    Other issues I've recently had is with the NFL app not loading videos and being slow. Titanfall likes to disconnect from the server randomly while in the lobby and sometimes during mid game. The party app will give me an error and say that I can connect
    to the party but after that it shows me in the party but I'm unable to communicate with anyone till I exit out of the party and sometimes I have to reset my xbox one.

    Why are the Apps so slow?

    I do a pretty good job at quitting out of all of the apps because they are just too much of a drain on the system when playing cod ghost.. The party app and friends shouldn't be a significant drain, so what else is running in the background that slows
    this down so much. Right now my clan is struggling to get everyone in a lobby together and we can't. Several times a night we get booted from the game or the game itself freezes. I wished the problems were just with ghost but it seems to be the issues with
    most games. In general the One seems to be really sluggish, even the 360 seems to be running quicker than this.

    I'm not in the preview program. Most of my friends are looking to trade their One's in and get a PS4 because of the issues.
