turning game mode on in settings still doesn't mean its on in the game you're playing, you need to press the windows tab + G then tick game mode to activate it for that specific game.

Once you set it, the Xbox app will track it. So if you go back to fullscreen exclusive mode in the game, you can still tell that it's working even if the game bar doesn't work.

I like the idea of Game Mode. It gives you more options, but it's a bit too cumbersome to implement...

Again, we need to simple go to the control panel and input an exe or app to activate it instead of using the game bar.

I assure you, it's also designed as another telemetry lane since the Xbox App tracks game usage when it's on.
