Five new media apps launched on the Xbox One this week. Gamers who own the Microsoft console can now download apps for Pandora, Vevo, Bravo Now, Telemundo Now and Popcornflix.
Solid entertainment system.
Can you listen to custom background music while playing? Day 1 tried to listen to my music during forza, no dice. Tried so snap in Pandora from the browser and could listen but with the screen snapped and game minimized. Is that fixed? This new Pandora app hopefully will work in background...
But still cannot play USB headsets. I will not rest until that feature is added.
That would be sweet. I have a Logitech G35 headset and been looking for a headset for my Xbox but so many wires is a big turn off for me.
Nice to see more Apps coming to the Service, Xbox LIVE just gets better and better!
It's very responsive too hit play and music is playing instantly
Xbox leading the way
I wish they were, then I could listen to my own music while playing a game without having to have an app snapped. Id love that while I play Sunset Overdrive. My PS4 has it, so I wouldn't say leading the way if I were you lol.
Talk about bein 2000 late
Good to see more and more apps hitting the Xbox one but I still think both Microsoft and Sony should of worked with the developers of the 360 and ps3 apps to have them on day one but that's life and technology I suppose.
Bingo. Peoe act like this is some new feature. The 360 was so good with so many features I was severely disappointed basic things were missing.
We can complain about things we don't have and should have. Now that we have it... you're saying we should still complain that we didn't have in the beginning? ... let's pretend your complaint is logged what or how would you expect them to remedy this? Relaunch the system?
Its good to complain Microsoft seems to be listening to complaints and new ideas. http://xbox.uservoice.com/
You must think MS makes all these apps, you're out of touch. Don't you think the companies of these apps might have something to say? Maybe other developers have to make them and they might need contracts and agreements beforehand. Try thinking before you post such buffoonery.
Does Microsoft have an embargo on getting all these entertainment apps? I love my PS4, but would love to see some of these same apps released on the console as well. It would be neat to see spotify add their app to current gen consoles.
nope, Sony's just late to the party. As always.
Not necessarily as always. Sony did have twitch integration and 3D blu-ray capabilities before microsoft did with their xbox one among just some other things. Anyway, please don't start a console war here. Just simply asking a question. Also why did I get a disagree?
You could give away $1 Billion to charity and single-handedly kick a earth-destroying asteroid out of orbit and you would still get a disagree on this site!
Yeah, it's a weird addition for sure. The agrees and disagrees really don't add anything to the topic because there isn't a rhyme or reason stated as to why a particular person agrees or disagrees with your statement. It just seems to be only beneficial for trolls, I guess...
Hell yeah. Finally I can have Pandora without having to open up IE. This new team (including Spencer) and policies is what XB1 should have had from the get go. I'm loving the features, the constant updates, and the games. Good times now and good times ahead.
