Hi I've linked my Xbox to the app on my phone so I can download early access from work, can somebody tell me do I have to leave the Xbox on for it to download or will it download and install to my Xbox when I press it on the app?

    I would guess so but am not sure as I don't have the app but I know that It won't be ready to play on if the xbox isn't turned on because it has to be on the hard drive or what ever form of memory storage you use for it to work.

    The Xbox doesn’t have to be turned on, it just has to be getting power.

    Are you trailing it with the 10 hours before buying it?

    I bought mine through the FIFA 18 banner and got 10% EA discount off the 10% Loyaly price making it 72.99 for ultimate. It downloaded straight away.

    How do you initiate the download through the app?

    Thats only if its set to the correct setting.. there is something you need to set in order to download when the xbox is "off".

    it needs to be on or have power with 'instant on' enabled

    Instant-on

    In instant-on power mode, your Xbox One, Xbox One S, or Xbox One X console is up to date and ready to use. In this mode:

    Your console automatically downloads updates.
    Your console starts up in two seconds.
    You can wake the console using a voice command (where available).

    To update your console automatically, select the Instant-on setting to keep your console, games, and apps up to date.

    Also, your console needs to be turned off to update. You can set your console to turn off automatically after 1 or 6 hours of inactivity, or turn it off when you're not using it.

    To change these settings:

    Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
    Select Settings > All settings.
    Select Power mode & startup. Make sure Power mode is set to Instant-on, and:
    For automatic updates, select Keep my console, games & apps up to date.
    To turn off your console when idle, select an option under Turn off after.
